This fantastic vacation to Australia has all the elements that a family with a love of adventure is looking for. It really shows off all the wonderful experiences that the diverse country of Australia has to offer.

Start your Australian adventure by flying straight down to Adelaide in South Australia. Here you will be met by our guide and transferred to your charter flight that will take you up to Arkaba. This is part of the Wild Bush Luxury collection and is a new way of experiencing the outback in total style and exclusivity. Included are all meals and drinks and activities such 4WD safaris, wildlife viewing and daily guiding. For a family with children over the age of 5, this is the ultimate in family adventure. You will have kangaroos hopping past your door, koalas in the trees and a never ending beautiful landscapes to look at.

You will take your private plane back to Adelaide before flying up to the Blue Mountains and to Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa by helicopter. Hidden away amidst the rocky escarpments and eucalyptus forests is Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa, a spectacular wilderness retreat. Part of the Emirates group, no luxury is spared here at Wolgan Valley and the whole family will be delighted by the amazing wildlife, the delicious food and the superb accommodation. Each suite boasts its own private pool.

The next leg of your trip will return you to Sydney where you can spend three nights marvelling at it's famous cityscapes. This cosmopolitan city has to be experienced whilst in Australia so to make sure you have an unforgettable trip stay at the Park Hyatt in a Premier Suite with an adjoining room. The location of the hotel is perfect, right in the Rocks district overlooking the Opera House. Plenty of activities can be arranged, such as a harbor cruise or a seaplane flight up the coast for lunch and of course reservations can be made at the best restaurants.

No trip to Australia is complete without a visit to the Great Barrier Reef. One&Only Hayman Island is a leading family resort and offering a wealth of activities for all the children, so we recommend a 7-night stay here to complete this Aussie adventure. Apart from relaxing, there is so much to do here from golf, water sports or even just snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef. The PADI Bubblemaker Program is also great for water mad kids. Available for 8 to 12 year olds during the school vacations, the experienced dive team teaches children dive basics and after completing the two hour program, they will receive a PADI Bubblemaker pack and certificate.

Marvel at the shades of a thousand different shimmering fish here and spend some quality time together; a perfect end to your luxury stay down under.

Location & Directions

Singapore, Outback, Port Douglas, Blue Mountains & Sydney

Raffles Hotel is located on Beach Road, in the heart of Singapore's business and civic district. It is a 5-minute train ride to Singapore’s bustling shopping district, Orchard Road and a short walk from the striking Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay. From there it's onto Australian outback of Flinders Ranges which offer one of the most accessible outback destinations in Australia - just 4.5-hours drive or 1-hour's flight from Adelaide. Arkaba Station is situated on the southern edge of Wilpena Pound and the Flinders Ranges National Park. Next to the Molori Great Barrier Reef which is located between the world's oldest rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef in Port Douglas, in northern Queensland.

When to go

Any time is a good time to go to Singapore. Practically on the equator, Singapore is constantly warm (the temperature never drops below 20°C) and humid and gets fairly steady year-round rainfall. Australia is good to visit year round and this particular itinerary is best from April through to October.
