    As APT Luxury Travel celebrates 60 years of pioneering outback exploration, APT is excited to offer their guests the opportunity to save thousands on select outback tours departing in 2024.

    With the Outback Sale 2024 underway, adventurers can immerse themselves in the wonders of the Outback through a variety of tours, including 4WD adventures, coastal small ship expeditions, or soaring through the skies on a private jet.

    From its humble origins as a suburban school bus service in Melbourne in 1964, APT’s founder, Geoff McGeary, embarked on a pivotal journey by taking a busload of students to the Outback.

    Back then the roads were mostly unsealed, and the accommodation was minimal, however, McGeary’s vision was clear: to provide Australians with the opportunity to discover the remote wonders of their own country.

    Fast forward to the present day, and APT remains at the forefront of innovation within the region. The company has recently spent over $15 million upgrading its investments in the Kimberley, with the Mitchell Falls Wilderness Lodge now boasting a true high-end glamping experience in one of the world’s stunning locations.

    APT’s commitment to providing unparalleled luxury extends further, with chief executive officer, David Cox saying the company has also worked with Mercedes Benz on four brand new custom-built expedition trucks, “so our customers can further experience pure luxury in one of the world’s harshest terrains”.

    According to Cox, this investment in the Kimberley ensures APT stays close to its roots as the company celebrates 60 years since it pioneered outback travel in Australia and continues to be the leader in the region whether it be by air, land or sea.

    2. Take an additional $2,000 per couple off the website price
