ULURU & DARWIN

Your journey begins in Australia’s Red Center where the light has played across Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) for 550 million years. Explore the sacred sites and culture of the Anangu tribes who have called the red-rust dunes of the Western Desert home for 30,000 years.

After exploring at the foot of Uluru, retire to a private dining experience set in this beautiful wilderness, sipping Australian Shiraz as you watch the sunset change Uluru through a dazzling array of colors.  

From utter seclusion to the thriving city of Darwin—the Northern Territory’s capital. You’ll rendezvous with Matt Wright, an outback wrangler and helicopter pilot skilled in tracking, capturing, and transporting wild animals.

With Matt piloting your helicopter, arrive at his exclusive Sweets Lagoon camp. Learn to fish before a crocodile search from the comfort of a jetboat. While learning about Matt’s conservation initiatives in the wetlands, you’ll encounter Tripod—a 17ft monster croc.

MOUNT MULLIGAN & WORKING RANCH

Near Cairns, discover the historic Mount Mulligan. This imposing tabletop mountain rises up from the encircling eucalyptus forest below. You’ll stay at Mount Mulligan Lodge, which offers panoramic views of this lesser-known natural treasure.

On the nearby weir, kayak, or paddleboard amid the serene landscape before exploring a former mining outpost turned ghost town.

Traverse the undulating pastureland and rugged terrain of the outback and see the stately Bullo River. Making your base at a working cattle station, you’ll explore this remarkable location by quad bike, horseback, and 4WD safari on the lookout for wild buffalo, crocodiles, or evidence of Aboriginal rock art.

Experience barramundi fishing and, for a true outback experience, try cattle mustering. Take to the air in a chopper above the tidal river system for spectacular views of the Pinkerton Range and secluded picnics.

GREAT BARRIER REEF & HAGGERSTONE ISLAND

With beautiful landscapes filling the plane’s porthole windows, transfer from Cairns to Lizard Island. Situated on the northerly tip of the Great Barrier Reef, this tropical island paradise and resort is perfect for exploring the UNESCO-listed natural heritage site offshore as well as indulging in some serious R&R.

You’ll savor an evening of culinary class when you sit down for a tailor-made tasting menu with wine pairing at your exclusive beach pavilion on Anchor Bay. Dive the famous Cod Hole the next day looking out for gargantuan potato cod, turtles, reef sharks, and 1,500 other varieties of fish among these incredible ribbon reefs.

Your finale in northern Australia takes place on Haggerstone Island. Transported on a private charter from Cairns and across the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll arrive at this island garden of Eden, uninhabited until 1985.

An environmental time capsule, you’ll explore the untouched coral and biodiversity found within the island’s twin lagoons. To reach the gorgeous ‘Lost Falls’, board the resort’s helicopter before arriving for a swim in perfect isolation. Trek through the island’s verdant jungle, spotting Haggerstone’s remarkably vivid and diverse birdlife. You’ll never want to leave.
