This enthralling small group adventure, (maximum of 24 tour members) offers a one-of-a-kind experience featuring the best of rural and urban Australia.  We have a special focus on Tasmania, Western Australia and parts of the Northern Territory rarely experienced by American visitors and never on a single journey.  We include the Outback, pristine wildlife areas, glorious Tasmania coastline, hinterland and Hobart.  The tour also includes the tropical top end of Australia's Northern Territory with Darwin, Katherine and Kakadu National Park, glorious Perth and Margaret River, Western Australia and Cairns, Fitzroy Island and the Great Barrier Reef.  We are proud to offer an itinerary that provides the opportunity to visit many areas of the island continent that are rarely experienced by American visitors on a single itinerary.

This tour is a very unique travel experience, designed for discerning travelers who wish to experience the most comprehensive tour of Australia available.  The opportunities to meet and interact with the hospitable local Aussies will be yours, on a daily basis.  Those who like to walk and hike will have opportunities to do so throughout the tour.  To participate on this tour a moderate level of fitness is required including the ability to walk without impairment, climb stairs and handle carry-on bags, all without assistance. At some Australian airports arriving group passengers utilize baggage carts to transport their bags to designated coach waiting areas.   For the protection of tour members, a health and fitness declaration must be completed prior to receiving final travel documents.   Any potentially impacting physical, fitness or medical issues should be discussed with ASI Tours prior to signing up for the tour. 

The tour visits in order, MELBOURNE, TASMANIA (HOBART, PORT ARTHUR, BICHENO, FREYCINET PENINSULA, COLONIAL TOWNS OF CAMPBELL TOWN, ROSS AND RICHMOND, RURAL TASMANIA), WESTERN AUSTRALIA, (PERTH, MARGARET RIVER, SOUTHWEST WA) NORTHERN TERRITORY (AYERS ROCK, ALICE SPRINGS, DARWIN, KATHERINE GORGE NATIONAL PARK, KAKADU NATIONAL PARK), NORTH QUEENSLAND COAST, (CAIRNS, CAPE TRIBULATION WILDERNESS AND RAINFOREST, FITZROY ISLAND, GREAT  BARRIER REEF,) AND SYDNEY.

Our tours are conducted in seasons that help insure the greatest likelihood of good traveling weather throughout the tour. This is important because we visit a wide variety of climatic regions and are generally able to avoid unpleasant rain, high temperatures and humid conditions that exist at other times of the year.  Finally, we believe that careful attention and decision making must be accorded to the pacing of longer group tours.   With that in mind, we have limited single night stops in our itinerary. We also insure by design that our tour members have free time in strategic locations during the tour to explore independently and simply recharge their batteries.  Typically long travel days and required late nights are followed by relaxed mornings, the next day. This touring philosophy over the years has helped insure, at tours end, our Aussie adventurers are refreshed, relaxed and yearning for more.  We think that is exactly as it should be.

Our tour accommodation is also a very special feature of our itinerary.  In both the larger cities and smaller towns, we use centrally located four star or best available accommodation.  In rural and wilderness areas we use the best available.  In several strategic locations we use spacious apartment hotel style accommodation; some with in-room washer and dryer and kitchen.  Self service laundry facilities are available at all of our properties except one wilderness retreat. Tour members may do tour extensions on their own arrangements. 

Some tour extensions may involve additional airfare expense. Please see the AROUND AUSTRALIA TOUR AIR TRAVEL POLICY.
