Luxury Australia Lodges Tour

Full Itinerary

Sydney, Freycinet Peninsula

Day 1: Friday 22 September

Our private jet journey begins in style, with a warm welcome and a glass of Dom Pérignon as we board our plane in Sydney. In the air, relax amid the comfortable surrounds of the aircraft before touching down. The Freycinet Peninsula, a perfect slice of pristine Tasmanian landscape, awaits our arrival. Our retreat in this paradise is Saffire Freycinet Lodge. With its sleek interiors and sublime dining, it's a delight to spend two nights here. Each suite boasts its own private courtyard and deck to take in the scenery. And what scenery it is! The lodge not only overlooks the Hazards mountain range and Great Oyster Bay, it's also close to Wineglass Bay.

Positioned to explore all the peninsula has to offer, choose from these Your World experiences.

  • Savour the delicate flavours of freshly shucked Freycinet Pacific oysters. Don waders, visit an oyster farm on Coles Bay and gain an appreciation for the ecology of the region.
  • Encounter the rare and endangered Tasmanian devil in the resort's open-range enclosure. Learn how to recognise individual devils and take part in a visual health inspection that is crucial to the effort of finding a cure for Tasmanian devil facial tumour disease.
  • Wineglass Bay, a perfect crescent of sand set against pink mountains, is an iconic feature of Tasmania. Our guides lead you on the famous lookout walk, a two-hour immersion into the scenery, flora and fauna.
  • Take an easier, but equally gorgeous, two-hour walk to the Cape Tourville lighthouse and Sleepy Bay, where you will explore the rocky shoreline.
  • Marvel at the region's natural gifts from its crystal-clear waters. A kayaking adventure takes us to the Swanport estuary at the mouth of the Moulting Lagoon wetlands, home to flocks of pelicans and an abundance of marine life.
This evening, we dine at Saffire Freycinet's Palate restaurant, an establishment that has garnered respect from gastronomes the world over. Serving a distillation of the freshest, purest ingredients available locally, the menu changes daily - the chef even welcomes your suggestions and input.

Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island

Day 3: Sunday 24 September

We fly directly to Kangaroo Island, avoiding a time-consuming transfer and maximising our discovery time. Kangaroo Island is often referred to as Australia's Galapagos, so numerous are its animal species. For the next two nights the Southern Ocean Lodge, perched high on a clifftop, is at the exclusive use of our group. Overlooking the waves, this property embodies eco-chic while showing off Hanson Bay. Its contemporary design features walls made of recycled spotted gum, and local artisans have added their touch with pieces inspired by the landscape.

A leisurely lunch is followed by a brisk coastal cliff walk and a naturalist presentation. We take a short drive to Grassdale, an early settlement now returned to native kangaroos and wallabies. We'll enjoy aperitifs and canapés at sundown as the animals bound by. A sumptuous dinner of South Australian produce awaits us back at the lodge.

Southern Ocean Lodge, Kangaroo Island

Day 4: Monday 25 September

After a sleep soothed by crashing waves, it's time to learn more of the island's diverse history, wildlife and landscapes. Explore Cape du Couedic, visited by the French in 1803 and named for the French naval officer of that expedition. We'll also discover the Remarkable Rocks, giant boulders sculpted by 500 million years of rain, wind and waves. Another testament to nature's power, Admiral's Arch serves as a viewing platform, from which to observe the local fur seal colony frolicking below.

After lunch back in the sophisticated confines of our lodge, the wine lovers among us will be in heaven with a wine tasting session in the intimate Southern Ocean Lodge cellar with a renowned island vintner. Kangaroo Island boasts near perfect grape-growing conditions with a cool, semi-dry climate that allows slow ripening and, as a result, exceptional quality wine.

A unique privilege rounds out our day, as we get up close to one of Australia's largest colonies of Australian sea lions during a walk around Seal Bay with a knowledgeable naturalist guide. The journey around the island continues at dinner tonight, but this time it's of the gastronomic variety.

Longitude 131˚, Uluru

Day 5: Tuesday 26 September

We begin delving into 50,000 years of human history. Our flight arrives in the Red Centre late in the afternoon, and we are whisked to Longitude 131°. The evening sky provides a striking backdrop as we gaze in wonder while the shifting sun turns the rock from ochre-brown to orange and then dark red.

For dinner we feast on a fusion of modern and indigenous flavours at Table 131°. Retiring to your tented pavilion, you may choose to sleep on an outdoor bed on your deck, under the Outback stars and with a warm fire glowing beside you. The next day you'll wake with a majestic sunrise view of Uluru at your feet.

Day 6: Wednesday 27 September

Today brings a wealth of Your World experiences to choose from, the first of which will unfold over the course of a whole day.

  • It's an honour to join the Uluru family and explore their homelands, learning of life in the desert long before tourism. Over afternoon tea, we hear ore recent tales of Paddy Uluru, who fought for Aboriginal land rights, and learn how Uluru came to be named as such.

You might instead opt for one of the following morning activities.

  • Join a guide and head into the outback to discover the intricacies of bush tucker and learn about some of the local reptiles.
  • We are introduced to local Anangu artists who will lead a workshop and offer insight into the symbols, styles and techniques used to create Aboriginal dot paintings.
  • Hear the stories of the Mala people, ancestors of current day Anangu, on a walk around Uluru. Along the way, your guide will point out cave paintings and other sites important to both the indigenous peoples and the explorers.

Those that return to Longitude 131° for lunch can then either relax at the lodge for the afternoon, or head west to discover Kata Tjuta, large domed rocks that are every bit as sacred to the Anangu people as Uluru.

This evening brings the chance to witness artist Bruce Munro's internationally acclaimed solar installation Field of Light. Made up of 50,000 bud-like stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres, these glowing blooms appear to sway under the night sky. We'll meander through the field to experience the interactive work before once again enjoying the cool night skies at Table 131°.

Spicers Hidden Vale

Day 7: Thursday 28 September

This morning, we take one last look toward Uluru then turn our gaze to Spicers Hidden Vale, set in a stunning wilderness region just an hour's drive from Brisbane. This country retreat is set in a historic homestead surrounded by heritage cottages - our residences for two nights.

At Homage, Spicers Hidden Vale's highly awarded restaurant, head chef Ash Martin and his team design menus inspired by the local produce farmed right on the property, which they collect daily. Our first experience of this true farm-to-table experience is over lunch, after which we're grateful for the freedom to stroll the idyllic countryside at leisure, or just gaze out over the towering gums from your personal veranda.

From freshwater crayfish and beef to seasonal produce, a number of different dishes are once again available on the ever-changing a la carte menu this evening.

After breakfast, choose how to spend your day with these Your World experiences.

  • Head into the surrounding bush to explore the numerous scenic trails by foot or mountain bike.
  • On a guided 4WD tour, some of the region's most spectacular scenery is on display. Savour a gourmet picnic lunch amid the beautiful surrounds.
  • Pamper yourself at Spicers Hidden Vale's famed Spa Anise. The signature Cocoa Vanilla Body Bliss treatment promises to leave you in a deliciously dreamy state.
