Our transcontinental, Indian Ocean to the Pacific, itinerary links Australia’s southwest with the Red Centre and Uluru, Sydney and Lord Howe Island.

And along the way you’ll be able to indulge your love of good wine and modern food in Margaret River, before visiting the sparkling city of Adelaide.

You’ll experience camping in luxury tents deep in the continent’s Red Centre. You’ll see the sensational Uluru – or Ayer’s Rock as it is more popularly known – before stepping into Sydney. Then comes the culmination of your trip – Lord Howe Island and the breath-taking undersea world of the Great Barrier Reef.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.

Perth

Your luxury, coast-to-coast extravaganza begins on the far edge of the Indian Ocean, in the vivacious city of Perth. Standing on the famous Swan River – which offers you walking, cycling, sailing and picnicking opportunities – Perth provides you with the sophisticated amenities of a major European city, combined with the virtually unfailing sunshine for which Western Australia is famed. Known as a ‘two crops of strawberries a year’ climate, you’ll only want to go inside to sleep.

Stay: Two nights in the luxury, boutique Richardson Hotel.

Margaret River

Collect your car and head south through Western Australia’s iconic, flat bushland until you come to Margaret River. This settlement, as its name suggests, stands beside the Margaret and is a complete contrast to busy Perth. The town specialises in arty shops, quality restaurants serving artisan food and a picturesque region that stretches for 100 km between a pair of capes. The coast offers you sensational white sand beaches fringed by the cobalt waters of the Indian Ocean, with almost no buildings – or people for that matter – to clutter your photos. And then there is the wine. As many as 80 boutique wineries now produce some of the finest Chardonnays and Cabernets to be found in Australia. In fact, you’ll be staying on a small wine estate with an excellent restaurant and a 14,000-bottle cellar to contemplate. Three days may not be enough!

Stay: Three nights at Cape Lodge, a small winery, plus one night in Perth.

Uluru

Will anything prepare you for the sense of wonder you’ll feel when you first view the phenomenon that is Uluru or Ayer’s Rock? Especially at sunrise. The monolithic red rock domes of Kata Tjuta, the miles of red earth and uncompromising bush are pretty awesome too. And the whole experience is heightened by the chance to sleep in the outback in an African safari-style tented camp. Complete with air conditioning, windows and a veranda giving great views from an advantageous position atop a huge sand dune.

Stay: Two nights in the luxury tented resort of Longitude 131˚.

Sydney

Sydney is regarded as one of Australasia’s premier destinations.

As well as lovely beaches, snorkelling and diving, the Lord Howe Island’s UNESCO-listed interior offers some great hiking options.
