Best of Tasmania (OATS)

Australia / Pacific Australia

The wild and wondrous island state of Tasmania stands apart from the rest of Australia in ways beyond mere geography. A great option for travellers who’ve already explored mainland Australia (including Aussies themselves) and are in the market for something a little different, this trip opens up the bountiful, untamed wilderness with a bundle of hands-on active pursuits. Go kayaking, jet-boating and fishing near Strahan, check out Cradle Mountain, Cataract Gorge, the eye-poppingly scenic Bay of Fires and meet some genuine Tasmanian devils at a wildlife sanctuary. It’s different down here. Discover why.

Highlights: Explore the national parks of Tassie, enjoy a barbecue on the beach, view the stunning Bay of Fires and Wineglass Bay, meet the famous Tasmanian devil, visit historic Port Arthur

Indonesia Encompassed (AEIE)

Asia Indonesia

Indonesia is a busy place, and not just because it’s one of the most densely-populated places on Earth. Blessed with rich jungles, imposing volcanoes and mile upon mile of gorgeous beachfront, it’s not surprising that 135 million people live here full-time. On this 29-day trip, you’ll get to experience what they live every day – Bandung, which feels more European than some cities in Europe; Yogyakarta’s volcanic landscapes; Bali’s pristine beaches; and far more than we can possibly get into here. Need more details? Come find 'em. Don’t worry, we’ll wait...

Highlights: Meet the orangutans in Sumatra, visit the tobacco plantations of Tetebatu in Lombok, snorkel vibrant reefs and dig your feet into white sand, explore Hindu temples in Bali and Buddhist sanctuaries in Java, climb volcanoes, learn where famous Sumatra coffee comes from, live with the locals in a traditional village

Best of Java (AEJV)

Asia Indonesia

With a population of 135 million crammed into just under 140,000 sq. kilometres, you’d think there’d be no room on Java left for adventuring.

From Jakarta, you’ll venture to the curiously European-like city of Bandung (the “Paris of Java”) en route to Yogyakarta, home to the island’s monstrous volcanoes. Later, you’ll spend two days in Dutch colonial Batu before winding up on the gorgeous Balinese beaches of Sanur. (Hey, if you can’t beat the crowd, join it!)
