Our first foray aboard our privately chartered, business class jet showcases one of the many benefits of private air travel – the ability to create our own route. On our way from Sydney to Hobart, we detour to Stanley for the day. Landing in Wynyard in North West Tasmania, a scenic coastal drive takes is to this historical and picturesque coastal village. Jutting out into Bass Strait we visit ‘The Nut’, and take a breathtaking chairlift ride to the top where we explore the plateau and soak up the incredible views. After a leisurely lunch we head back to Wynyard for our short flight onwards to Hobart. The impressive MACq 01 hotel is our base for the next three nights. We’re welcomed with drinks and canapes prior to dinner at Mures Upper Deck near the hotel.

You might choose to explore Hobart independently today, or join us on an adventure to nearby Bruny Island, where you can select one of two experiences. Choose the gourmet experience to sip and savour the island’s renowned produce straight from the source. There’s oozing cheese, freshly shucked oysters, fudge and golden honey, washed down with wine, beer or cider. Then, a short stroll to balance things out. Alternatively, cruise alongside some of Australia's highest sea cliffs and beneath towering crags while looking for seals, whales, dolphins and birds.

Enjoy a free morning in the city, or a historic walking tour, followed by a gourmet lunch. The afternoon also offers a choice, including a visit to MONA (Museum of Old and New Art). The creator designed his ultramodern art museum to be approached by water, and the ‘Posh Pit’ experience on the dedicated ferry is the only way to go. Alternatively, we may choose to visit the Nolan Gallery, which features works from Tasmanian artists, and Mawson’s Huts, faithful, full-sized replicas of the huts at Cape Denison used by Australia’s most famous Antarctic explorer and his expeditioners.

We have the chance this morning to visit the bustling Salamanca Market before re-joining our private jet. After take-off, we watch the lush green of Tasmania disappear from view. It won’t be long before we make our descent to King Island. We head straight to the southern hemisphere’s tallest lighthouse at Cape Wickham, followed by lunch at Cape Wickham Golf Course. After lunch, we set forth on our hunt for the island’s famous cheese and beef, and then later check in to our accommodation, Boomerang by the Sea.

From one splendid island to the next. It’s back aboard our private jet for the short flight to Kangaroo Island. While the west coast of the island was devastated by the bushfires of January 2020, the east remains untouched – our visit will help a local community and a tourism industry much in need of support. We head straight to Dudley Winery for a tasting and a cheeseboard for lunch, followed by a walk around Cape Willoughby Lighthouse. We then check in to Aurora Ozone Hotel for a relaxed evening.

We spend the morning exploring the natural charms located within Flinders Chase National Park, including the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. Continue to Seal Bay, where visitors are able to get close to a wild colony of around 1,000 rare Australian sea lions. We reconvene at our hotel’s restaurant tonight for our last dinner as a group, an authentic local meal celebrating our time on the island.

There’s time for one more stop before our journey’s end. Our private plane lands in Mildura and we travel to Trentham Estate winery aboard a charming paddle steamer. Watch the bush scenery of the Murray River unravel before lunch, wine tastings and a few final reflections with our new-found friends. It’s then back aboard our private jet for the flight to Sydney. We say goodbye, feeling refreshed and looking forward to the next adventure.
