Western Australia is an extraordinary place. Home to four World Heritage listed sites, it is a nature lovers’ paradise, where you can snorkel with humpback whales and whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef, meet quokkas on Rottnest or sunbathe with kangaroos at aptly named Lucky Bay. A road trip through the South West offers a feast for all the senses, with award-winning wine and truffle producers sitting next to towering forests and pristine beaches. In Perth, Australia’s sunniest city, the locals will give you a welcome as warm as the weather. And it is closer than you think with direct flights from London or a short hop from Asia.

Discover something different in South Australia. Our state has endless experiences showcasing the best of Australian nature, wildlife, coastal activities, landscapes and experiential journeys that offer unforgettable moments for all travellers. From relaxed city vibes in Adelaide and the world-class produce of our wine regions, to wildlife spotting on Kangaroo Island and outback wandering in the Flinders Ranges. In South Australia, there is so much so close – come and hear more about this incredible destination.

Here in Queensland, there’s plenty to do. But there’s even more to find. Like swimming through the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef among coral that’s thousands of years old, or getting lost in wonder as you explore the world’s oldest surviving rainforest. Up here, calling it a night means curling up in an eco-certified rainforest hideaway. Or drifting off to the sound of waves lapping at the shore of your own private carbon-positive island. Join us as we dive into the region’s barefoot luxury offering and introduce you to some of our best kept secrets and hidden gems.

Located in the heart of the South Pacific, The Islands of Tahiti calls to mind visions of an idyllic island paradise. Secluded, tropical and lush, the islands possess one of the most beautiful and diverse environments on earth with a mixture of high volcanic islands and low-lying atolls, and offer both tropical adventure and blissful relaxation.

The 15 islands of the Cooks lie halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii in the South Pacific. Scattered like fragrant frangipani petals floating across 2.2 million square kilometres of a seductive, sensual ocean. Boasting rare beauty, an idyllic climate, warm welcoming people with the widest white smiles and a pace of life unsurpassed for peace: the Cook Islands are an Island Paradise.
