The vastness and diversity of Australia can make travel-planning a daunting task. Where on earth do you start?
There’s no doubt the easiest way to explore the majesty of the world’s largest island – and knowing you’ll get to see the best it has to offer – is to travel with a company that’s been doing it for more than a century.
AAT Kings, a name synonymous with guided holidays in this country, has just released its 2019/2020 brochure with more than 40 itineraries to choose from.
These fully-guided tours not only showcase the nation’s icons but the deep local experience of the Travel Directors escorting each holiday means you’ll get to see, touch and taste things you might otherwise miss travelling independently.
