Abercrombie & Kent releases fresh stack of Australia and NZ trips

Abercrombie & Kent has drawn on its more than 30-year experience delivering adventures across Australia and New Zealand to bring a refreshed and exciting portfolio of local travel. 

From the untamed wilderness of Australia’s Outback to the natural wonders of scenic New Zealand, A&K’s guests can discover unique and lesser-known locations while exploring the familiar in luxury on its newly released small group journeys in 2022/23.

The trips have an average group size of 6-12 guests traversing expertly designed itineraries, packed with the kind of authentic ‘Insider Access’ opportunities and handpicked distinctive accommodation mostly unavailable to larger groups.

Here are just some of the A&K journeys available for Aussie and Kiwi travellers this year:

6-day Red Centre: Outback Wanderings

Guests can witness the beauty of the outback on a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the McDonnell Ranges, discover the majesty of Kings Canyon with a scenic rim walk and the verdant Garden of Eden, and then admire the ever-changing colours of Uluru from their luxury accommodation at the celebrated Longitude 131˚.

Quests will also learn about the spiritual and cultural significance of Uluru, experience the renowned Field of Light and dine under a blanket of stars as they hear about the southerly constellations.

11-day Tasmania: Wine, Wildlife & Wilderness

The epicurean flavours of Flinders Island are showcased by private charter flight and of Bruny Island by ferry. There are a myriad untamed landscapes and heritage-listed natural wonders to admire, from Lake St Clair and Cradle Mountain to Freycinet National Park.

8-day New Zealand: Alpine Winter Wonderland
