Collette launches new itinerary after announcing Aussie centennial events

Travel Weekly

As you may recall, last week we announced that Collette is bringing their centennial celebrations down under this September!

These events are a chance for Aussie agents to celebrate Collette in style – and in some of the coolest bars around the nation.

The travel company was established in 1918, making it 100 years old this year.

And with age comes wisdom – which you can experience firsthand in their newest trip!

Collette’s new nine-day ‘Painted Canyons of the West’ tour takes travellers across Colorado, Utah and Nevada, visiting five national parks and exploring some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the country.

Heavenly view of world

James Hewlett, head of marketing for Collette Australia, said this brand new itinerary highlights the rural landscapes of North America travellers otherwise might not see.

“The Painted Canyons of the West tour allows travellers to access some of the most remote and untouched landscapes across North America. We are proud to offer our customers the opportunity to experience this unique region with this exciting new tour,” he said.

Highlights of the new trip include a wine tasting in Colorado wine country, the majestic sandstone cliffs of the aptly named Dead Horse Point (which, BTW, was once used by cowboys to corral wild mustangs that roamed the mesa) the amazing spires (also known as fairy chimneys and earth pyramids) of Bryce Canyon National Park, and hiking through Zion National Park’s half-mile-wide canyon.

Oh, and it finishes up with a bang in Vegas. Could it get any better?

The ‘Painted Canyons of the West’ tour starts from $3,999 per person for nine days and includes 11 meals and accommodation in four and five star hotels. Sounds pretty amazing, right?

And for something amazing a little closer to home, Collette’s centennial events around Australia are still open for registration!

We’d get our skates on if we were you, because money literally can’t buy these golden tickets. All you have to do is register your interest right here, and a lucky few will receive their exclusive invite to the night of nights.

Oh, and this celebration isn’t just for one city – it’s travelling around the country. But there’s only 100 tickets up for grabs in each city, so hurry!

Collette’s Centennial Celebrations will be held at:

  • Hadiqua, Perth on Monday August 27
  • Diesel, Melbourne on Wednesday August 29
  • Palmer & Co, Sydney on Tuesday September 4
  • Madame Wu’s, Brisbane on Wednesday September 5

This is set to be the travel industry’s best ever trade roadshow party – with prizes, product launches, live activations and much, much more.

So register now! Or you’ll definitely regret it later.
