Indigenous

For more than 40,000 years, Australia’s Indigenous people lived in harmony with the continent’s diverse landforms and climates, utilising sophisticated tools and hunting techniques to adapt to the varied environments.

With complex social structures, more than 250 languages and a deep spirituality embodied in ‘The Dreaming’, understanding more about these fascinating ancient cultures is a powerful attraction for curious global travellers.

In the Red Centre, one of the most important spiritual sites to Indigenous Australians, Uluru, is also the focal point for our journeys of discovery.

Great way to travel for everyone, not just for train buffs! Relaxing and great scenery.

Following the Sun

Australian roots musician Xavier Rudd’s passport is proof of a life well-travelled, but there’s only one place he calls home.

DEEPWATER DREAMING

Meaning ‘deepwater’ in local Wajarri language, the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef is the largest fringing reef in Australia. Stretching for 300 spectacular kilometres, the Ningaloo Marine Park begins at Western Australia’s Exmouth Gulf and ends at Red Bluff, just north of Carnarvon. What’s special about this particular reef?
