Luxury holidays in Australia are, surprisingly enough, a fantastic way to experience nature. A lot of people head on safari for their holiday if they’re looking spend a little time in the wilderness, but Australia offers a brand of wildlife all its own, unforgettable in its own special way. You’ll also get a thrill from knowing you’ve bested a land with more things that can kill you than anywhere else. In our hands, though, you’re guaranteed safety and pure enjoyment of everything the country has to offer.

There are many different ways to explore the natural world of Australia. We have a few experience recommendations for you today but there are many different ways to delve through the wildlife of Australia, including self-drive tours.

1. Discovery Ecotours

Discovery send tours into the heartlands of Australia and to the best places to get a glimpse of true Australian beauty. This award-winning operator takes guests in a comfortable 4WD vehicle with a specialist, experienced guide, so you’ll get the full experience of having someone to answer all of your questions as well as an exploration of the countryside to the fullest.

Discovery take tours to a variety of different locations. Their itineraries take you through Alice Springs (referred to in the title of A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute), Kings Canyon, and Aluru or Ayers Rock. The tour is designed to acquaint you with the beauty and serenity of the environment while teaching you the history, songs, and spirit of the Aboriginal people who live in the area.

Uluru is a world heritage site, a natural icon, and revered by the Anangu, the Aboriginal people who live in the area. Though the Anangu request that people do not climb the rock, many do, and a chain handhold has been added to make it a little bit easier, though this may be outlawed due to conservation of the monument and recognition of Anangu beliefs by the Australian government in the near future. The tour to Uluru through Discovery takes you around the rock to absorb the spectacle in the beauty of sunrise alongside a more careful viewing of rock art and waterholes on Uluru, finishing off at the cultural centre.

2. Australian Coastal Safari

Run by David Doudle, better known as ‘Lunch’, these coastal safaris tours take you around the coastline of the Lower Eyre Peninsula in Southern Australia. Each tour is customised to your interests as a guest, but may include swimming with sea lions, tuna, dolphins, or even great white sharks (with you safe inside a cage, of course), or travelling along the jagged coastlines, pristine beaches, and untamed national parks. Travelling will take place in a 4WD vehicle and it will be your choice whether to sleep on the beach under the stars or in a comfortable guest house.

3. Big Blue Air Touring

This tour company takes you through the heart of Africa with a small twin engine aircraft, designed to land in places where bigger planes can’t. Just six passengers go on each tour, so you’ll experience an unrivalled amount of personal attention and comfort while exploring all of the best Australia has to offer in record time. Touring old school house museums, sleepy country towns, and unspeakably beautiful ranges, you’ll also enjoy some of the best cuisine the Outback has to offer with fresh grills including unusual (for us) meats such as kangaroo, emu, and goat, finished off with the finest South Australian wines. It’s an experience!
