Australia

firm favourite for the discerning traveller

Guaranteed to make cherished memories

 

Spanning three different time zones and spread over more than 700,0000 square kilometres, Australia is a tour-de-force and a firm favourite for the discerning traveller.

Explore expanses of desert, enclaves of rainforest, stunning aquamarine waters, and bustling metropolises. Whether travelling with your family, alone, or with a loved one, you’re guaranteed to make cherished memories when you visit this vast and diverse country.

At Azure, we offer a range of luxury holidays to Australia and are dedicated to making sure you get the most out of your trip.

The famous Gold Coast of Australia is a one of the most popular places to visit, and can be explored in full with a laidback road trip. Stop off at the famous Bondi Beach, Byron Bay and Airlie Beach and soak up the sights as you travel along the aptly-named Sunshine Coast. Try your hand at surfing, whitewater rafting or take the opportunity to learn how to scuba dive. Take an indulgent cruise around some of the most unspoilt beaches in the world, including the iconic Whitsunday Islands with their white sands and crystal clear waters. Many travellers head to the East Coast to experience the world-famous Great Barrier Reef, where you can snorkel and swim with a diverse range of marine life, including turtles and reef fish.

If you’re looking for something a little bit different, head inland to Uluru-Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) National Park, which is an UNESCO World Heritage site. Uluru, or Ayers Rock, is a towering sandstone monolith with significant spiritual importance in Aboriginal culture. The vivid red colours of ‘the Rock’, as it’s called locally, against the clear sky is bound to be a sight that will stay with you forever.

For those who crave bright lights and buzzing cityscapes, Sydney is the place to see and be seen. With its iconic Opera House, stunning Harbour Bridge (which can be explored on a BridgeClime), top-notch cuisine and fabulous nightlife, you certainly won’t be short on things to do. The food in Sydney is diverse and delicious, and you won’t want to miss the chance to sample the famous ‘Mod Oz’ cuisine and some freshly caught seafood. Another popular dish is the endemic Moreton Bay bug - a succulent crustacean enjoyed best on a traditional Aussie barbeque. Meanwhile, located north-east of Sydney, the Blue Mountains with their rugged and spectacular landscapes are also well worth visiting, while the wine region of Hunter Valley can be found a few hours’ drive north of the city.

Then there’s the cosmopolitan, dynamic city of Melbourne. Brimming with cool restaurants, bars and cafes, it has a unique and unforgettable character. While you’re in the south-east of the country, why not venture along the Great Ocean Road? This 151-mile drive is known as one of the most scenic coastal drives anywhere in the world. You can also check out Phillip Island to see the popular Penguin Parade. Each night at sunset, Little Penguins (the world’s smallest penguins, also known as Fairy Penguins), return to the shore after a day’s fishing - to the delight of onlookers.

Whatever you’re looking for in your next trip, let us help you to make it a reality. Whether you want your Australian holiday to be by the sea, on a remote island, or in some of the world’s coolest cities, you should be able to find something to suit your needs with our tailor-made luxury holidays.
