The diversity of Australia’s West Coast ranges from the gastronomic delight that is Margaret River, the kaleidoscope of colours that come alive during wildflower season to the vast clear skies and theatrical landscapes of the golden outback. Engulfed by a 2.5 billion-year-old landscape, the rugged Pilbara boasts Karijini National Park with its tapestry of deep red gorges, sheer waterfalls and rich natural resources; and flanked by azure waters is the Coral Coast, a treasure trove of pristine beaches and exotic marine life including the friendly bottle nose dolphins of Monkey Mia.

It may be small in size, but Tasmania is packed with a diversity of experiences, distinctive flora and fauna, and some of the most pristine wilderness areas in the world, which cover almost one fifth of the Apple Isle, from the highland lakes and craggy peaks of the Cradle Mountain-Lake Saint Clair National Park to the dramatic East Coast’s Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay. Once a far-flung colonial outpost, Tasmania offers a rich historic past and its reputation as a food paradise tantalises gourmands with its exceptional wines and cheeses.

Lying east of the Australian mainland, Norfolk Island is a sub-tropical South Pacific haven renowned for its ubiquitous evergreen pine, rugged coastline and for being one of the friendliest places on earth – their phone book is the only one in the world listed by nicknames. Visited about 1,000 years ago by the Great Polynesian Migration and ultimately ‘discovered’ by Captain James Cook, Norfolk Island also served as a British penal colony before the entire community of nearby Pitcairn Island (descendants of the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian wives) settled there.
