A vast continent of breathtaking contrast, Australia rolls out across red earth and turquoise waters, golden sand beaches and lush rainforest, over vast outback plains and into bustling city markets. The sheer diversity of landscape delivers a rejuvenating blend of adventure, indulgence and escape, and the mild climate year-round means it's always a good time to visit.
With Southern Crossings designing your Australian holiday, our expertise and creativity is at your disposal. We hand-pick the experiences specifically for you, and ensure things move at your pace. Our holidays in the Great Southern Land deliver all the highlights, whether you're about seeing it all, or just enjoying long afternoons in the sun with great food, fabulous wine and easy conversation - true Aussie style.
With such an incredible variety of landscapes to discover in Australia, we start the design of your itinerary by learning about your passions and travel style, and choosing destinations to suit.
For sun seekers, we find your perfect beach from the nearly 11,000 on offer; beaches for barefoot walks on untouched white sands, or hitting the surf at an iconic break, or snorkelling in crystal clear waters on tropical islands reefs.
For dreamers, a night under star-filled skies in the endless space of the Outback can be a life-changing experience.
For those who delight in fine flavours, we can whisk you (not literally) from world-class harbour-side restaurants to eclectic laneway eateries, through fresh food markets, and out into some of Australia's world-renowned 60 wine regions and valleys.
Where you stay colours your trip almost as much as where you go. We pride ourselves on being able to conjure up accommodation so right our clients feel like we've known them for years.
We have placed clients in penthouse suites overlooking Sydney harbour, flown them by helicopter to their own private island, and heard their tales of endless changing colours over Chamberlain Gorge, as they watched from an outdoor bathtub. They have clicked along through the mountain passes on beautiful old rail carriages, sailed the Whitsundays on luxury yachts, and trekked on the backs of camels to coastal oases.
Our accommodation is all wonderfully unique, and each property offering a new take on Australia. From outrageous decadence to neighbourhood charm and intimacy, our properties are as varied as their locations, but they all share a common thread: exceptional levels of service, and they all provide an experience that is totally authentic to their location.
From adventure to leisure, Australia has it all and we can make it happen for you.
Swim with whale sharks or play golf with a kangaroo. Watch indigenous dancers under outback stars, or the spectacular New Years Eve fireworks on Sydney Harbour. Learn the legends of the Dreamtime from an Anangu elder, or visit a remote Aboriginal community in Arnhemland for an authentic introduction to the world's oldest living culture. Dive the Great Barrier Reef, sail the Whitsundays, hike in Tasmania's wilderness or just relax and be pampered. Meet new friends and sample indigenous flavours at a private Sydney home, or ask the chef to barbecue the Barramundi you just caught.
The experiences Australia has to offer are only limited by the imagination. Let our experience and local knowledge bring these incredible experiences together for you, to create an Australia tailor-made just for you... One you will remember forever.
