Let us invite you to take the Scenic route through the heart of Australia, discovering the wild majestic beauty and immersive nature of this incredible nation.
Vast desert outback, rocky mountain ranges, winding ocean roads and cosmopolitan cityscapes, take the Scenic route through Australia as the allure of true adventure beckons, where natural wonder, ancient cultures and indigenous wildlife are yours to coexist amongst. Australia is a country with many distinct faces waiting to be explored, from the world-famous Bondi Beach to the Great Barrier Reef.

At Scenic, we carefully handpick each and every unforgettable experience to ensure that our innovative itineraries continue to set the standard for 5-star luxury touring.
 

Our Scenic Enrich experiences are all-inclusive and exclusive, having been carefully curated to take you behind the scenes for encounters that are simply inaccessible to the ordinary traveller, while still being included in the price you pay. Our Scenic Freechoice daily excursions will enable you to uncover the secrets that Australia harbours with the help of our expert guides, where you are free to explore areas of natural wonder and indulge in authentic Australian cuisine on board a historically restored tramcar.

Here is a small selection of the Scenic Enrich and Scenic Freechoice activities that we feature in Australia:
