Where to Travel in Autumn 2021 in Australia

March – May 2021

For those lacking inspiration for Australian holidays for 2021 we’re here to help. As your regular balinese resort is still off limits but you’re itching to get out of the house we’re on hand to give you ideas and create a holiday that best suits you. 
Arguably the best time to travel all year, Autumn when the weather is becoming less extreme and crowds from the most popular destinations are starting to recede but don’t hesitate to start planning and booking fo the Easter holidays. With all Australians having to holiday here destinations are filling up fast. Leave all the heavy lifting and endless phone calls to us, we’ll find what you’re looking for.

Best for families

The Easter holidays will be the most popular time to travel so do your best to book early! The most popular destinations may already be booked out but we can help you find somewhere a little different, off the beaten path that will do doubt surprise you and will be ever grateful for your visit. 

Why not try a New South Wales road-trip past the Blue Mountains and over to town like Orange or Dubbo, home to the Taronga Western Plains Zoo that offers up open rage exhibits. 

Or our friends at Exceptional Kangaroo Island will be able to show you how to get back in touch with nature, re-engage your senses and experience solitude on a beautiful beach. A truely unforgettable holiday.

Best for Couples

For couples looking to get back to nature and relaxing in the company of the best views try a tour of the Grampians National Park. Just a few hours from Melbourne but the scenery will make you feel a million miles away. 

Perhaps a walking tour of the Bay of Fires in Tasmania’s North East paired with a luxury stay at Saffire Freycinet Lodge. After a scenic seaplane transfer over the stunning Freycinet National Park why not wade in the shallows and try oysters plucked and shucked directly from the farm.

Best all-rounder

If you’re looking to stay East, Tasmania offers a huge range of sights and activities that would inspire everyone, from families to couples or girls trips alike. Brilliant wineries are dotted throughout the state as to are precious National Parks and out of this world culinary experiences.

Western Australia’s Coral Coast comes alive when the heat subsides and the waters warm up. The diverse coast line from Perth all the way up to Exmouth offer a huge range of different beach escapes from wide sandy bays of Lancelin and Jurien Bay to the stunning corals of the aptly named Coral Bay. Make sure to stop in at the Lobster Shack in Cervantes on your way up and the National Park outside Kalbarri is home to the brand new walkway.

Hobart & Maria Island Walk

Tourism Australia & Virtuoso The last time I was able to make use of my hiking boots was in Uganda, 2015, but I dusted them off after being invited to explore Hobart and hike Maria Island with Tourism Australia and Virtuoso.
