Outback Encounter


Bespoke adventures throughout Australia are Outback Encounter's specialty. You can combine classic must-see destinations like the Great Barrier Reef and Sydney's beaches with surprises like a luxury outback lodge set in crocodile-, water buffalo-, and wallaby-inhabited terrain. Or pick a theme and have your personal travel designer create an itinerary around it: beaches, helicopter safaris, Aboriginal art and culture. Wherever you go, you'll stay in the country's most luxurious hotels and have the option of traveling by private jet.
