Combining four of Australia's most luxurious lodges by Private Jet, this itinerary allows you the freedom to experience each destination completely as you see fit. We have included selected activities in each place, however there is no set plan - you can book what you want, when you want. Having privately hired each of the lodges for your stay allows a true Captain's Choice experience.
This was our first Captains Choice and was really delighted with every aspect.
J & S Sutcliffe, Natural Wonders of Alaska
Meet your fellow guests at the Sydney Private Jet terminal this morning as we board our Private Jet for Hobart, where we transfer to Saffire Freycinet Lodge. Check in for your two night stay, including gourmet meals and paired wines.
During your stay, you can choose from an array of experiences below.
This morning, we say goodbye to one luxury lodge, and eagerly head to the airport in anticipation of the next. Our next Private Jet flight takes us North West to Kangaroo Island. Perched atop a rugged clifftop, Southern Ocean Lodge is a breathtaking paragon of modern luxury and contemporary environmental design.
After lunch, we enjoy a coastal cliff walk followed by an informative visual presentation hosted by a resident naturalist providing an insight into the islands discovery and natural history.
Later soak up the history of the early island settlers at Grassdale, a historic island property, a short drive from the Lodge where local wildlife including kangaroos and wallabies congregate to graze. Observe these creatures in their natural environment, sip on premium South Australian beverages and nibble on a canapé whilst enjoying the sunset.
We return to Southern Ocean Lodge for dinner.
This morning enjoy a half day KI tour. This signature experience is a spectacular introduction to KI’s wildlife, maritime heritage and stunning coastal landscapes. Cape du Couedic lighthouse, Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch and a fur seal colony are just some of the many highlights.
Lunch is waiting us on our return to the lodge.
Seal Bay is home to Australia’s third largest colony of Australian sea lions. Join our naturalist guide for an exclusive tour on the beach with these wild animals. Learn about their unique breeding cycle and the ongoing research programs implemented on site.
Later this afternoon enjoy pre dinner drinks and canapes followed by dinner.
Bidding farewell to Southern Ocean Lodge, our Private Jet awaits to deliver us from the misty coastal cliffs of Kangaroo Island, directly to the red centre. We transfer directly to Longitude 131º, your new home away from home.
After checking in and freshening up, we watch a stunningly red sun fall beneath the horizon before dining at Table 131º.
This morning explore the impressive formation of Kata Tjuta, the walls of Walpa Gorge rising obliquely on each side and discover how eons of weathering and continental upheaval have created today’s landscape. Visit the Cultural Centre where informative and interactive displays provide insight into the spiritual and cultural meanings of Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
We return to Longitude 131º for a refreshing lunch.
This afternoon join the Lodge guide for a gentle walk along a portion of Uluru’s base and learn about the history of the Mala people, viewing cave paintings and sites important to both Anangu and the early explorers. Enter Kantju Gorge at dusk to witness the rock walls ablaze with the light of the setting sun. Revel in the silence with sunset drinks and canapés.
This evening enjoy the intimate ambience of dinner in the Dune House.
Take one last opportunity to enjoy the luxuriously rugged surrounds of Longitude 131º, for after breakfast we board our Private Jet and head towards Brisbane. Arriving in Queensland's capital, we transfer out of the city to Spicers Hidden Vale. A gourmet lunch awaits our arrival.
This exclusive, hidden gem in the Queensland bush, will welcome you with its unique combination of relaxed style and uncomplicated country charm.
Choose from the following activities during your stay.

Our privately chartered Embraer 135 jet is one of the fastest and most reliable commercial jet aircrafts operating in Australia. Thanks to its twin jet engines, it has a cruising speed of 820 kilometres per hour, so you can spend less time in the air and more time enjoying the wonders of the destinations it takes you to. When you are in the air, your comfort is paramount. Air conditioning keeps the temperature pleasant at all times and you'll be treated to morning and afternoon teas on board, as well as the occasional light lunch. All are accompanied by drinks, and all consist of local produce that, wherever possible, is sourced from the places you've just visited – so you can indulge in delightful regional flavours even after you've departed. Your seating – either aisle or window – is rotated throughout the journey. The hand selected crew of our Private Jet know that great service means more than just fulfilling your travel needs. It's the genuine smile that greets you every time you board, the security of their expertise, and the unprecedented warmth, care and consideration afforded you from the moment the journey begins to the time you arrive back in Sydney. Flying aboard our Private Jet is not like an ordinary flight – it is always a pleasure and often a highlight.
Prices are per person, twin share from Sydney return.
