Experience Our Australia

Our customized, private insider tours of Australia feature our favorite places and experiences in the country.

First-time visitors...

Should consider visiting the key highlights of Australia, such as Sydney, the Outback and the Great Barrier Reef.

Wildlife enthusiasts...

Will love seeing Australia’s unique wildlife, including kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, platypuses, echidnas and more. Artisans of Leisure arranges amazing wildlife experiences throughout Australia.

Breathtaking moment...

You’ll feel like you’re in a planetarium during nights in the Outback and Australian bush. The star-filled sky and lack of ambient light and air pollution make it easy to spot constellations that are only visible in the Southern Hemisphere, including the Southern Cross.

Indulge...

With a stay at one of Australia’s top luxury hotels and lodges, including island retreats such as Lizard Island, upscale city hotels such as the Park Hyatt Sydney, and exclusive nature lodges such as Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island, Saffire in Tasmania and Longitude 131 in the Outback.

Cafe culture...

While in Sydney or Melbourne, be sure to set aside time to enjoy Australia’s renowned cafe culture and have a “flat white,” which is like a smaller and stronger latte.

If you love food...

Discover the best native ingredients—such as wattleseed, finger lime and pepperleaf—while dining at restaurants in Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne.

Best shopping...

Aboriginal and tribal art, opal jewelry, wine, fashion and accessories by up-and-coming Australian designers are all great options.

Memorable meal...

Stay at The Louise in the Barossa Valley wine region and enjoy a meal at Appellation, their famous restaurant, paired with superb local wines.

Go backstage...

Have us arrange exclusive tours such as a backstage tour of the iconic Sydney Opera House or a behind-the-scenes tour of Taronga Zoo.

Must experience...

A boat ride on Sydney’s beautiful harbor.

Why not...

Take a private surfing lesson on legendary Bondi Beach in Sydney.

Kids love...

Wildlife-spotting, snorkeling, boat rides, beaches and warm Aussie hospitality.

Insider tip...

Consider having us charter a private plane for greater flexibility and ease when traveling around Australia.

Scenic drive...

The Great Ocean Road along the coast of Victoria outside Melbourne is considered one of the most scenic drives in the world. We’ll arrange a private driver to take you to see highlights such as dramatic cliffs and the iconic Twelve Apostles sea stacks, stopping at beachside towns and farms along the way. We can also arrange a helicopter to transfer you back to Melbourne at the end of the day.

Aboriginal art...

We know the best galleries, museums and national parks to see authentic Aboriginal art, from ancient rock art to contemporary dot paintings.

Feeling adventurous...

Climb Sydney’s distinctive Harbour Bridge for amazing views over the city.

Local culture...

Cities such as Sydney and Melbourne are packed with opportunities for touring focused on art, cuisine, design, architecture, history, gardens and more.

Did you know...

Wolgan Valley is home to the Wollemi pine? The ancient conifer was known in the fossil record but thought to be extinct until it was discovered growing in the Blue Mountains in 1994.

Best view...

Take a cable car ride over the Daintree Rainforest, and see thousand-year-old trees, impressive waterfalls and the beautiful coastline beyond.

Off-the-beaten-track...

Bamurru Plains, a luxury tented camp set above floodplains at the Top End of the Northern Territory. It’s a great place to explore the flora and fauna of one of Australia’s wildest regions.

Favorite hike...

Cradle Mountain in Tasmania.

Memorable experience...

Swimming with the majestic whale sharks off the UNESCO-listed Ningaloo Coast, a reef system in Western Australia.

Romantic activity...

A candlelit meal on a remote beach in Queensland.

Insider Sydney...

From the markets and boutiques of Paddington, to the independent bookstores and cafes of Glebe, to the exclusive homes of Vaucluse and Double Bay, we know the best ways to experience Sydney’s incredible lifestyle.

The sporting life...

Consider having us arrange for you to attend a major sporting event such a rugby game, tennis match, golf tournament, football (soccer) game, cricket match or sailing regatta.
