Travel Inspiration: Captain Cook’s Rediscovered Australia
No matter how much Australia might resemble the last European country you’ve visited, this giant of an island-continent is worlds apart from anywhere else you’ve been. Here the seasons are reversed, trees shed their bark rather than their leaves, and strange beasts—not just kangaroos, but bandicoots, wombats, and Tasmanian devils—roam the mysterious terrain.
But toss out all preconceptions, for this is also the home of the world’s most recognizable opera house (celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023!), quaint Victorian neighborhoods, and sophisticated, international haute cuisine. That’s Australia for you— wonderfully enigmatic, to say the least.
Australia may be the smallest, oldest continent, but her landscapes are absolutely unique, and her culture is equally so. In fact, there is so much ground to cover in Australia, R. Crusoe & Son suggests you survey the possibilities, then allow us to put together a journey for you that minimizes your travel time and maximizes your exposure to what interests you. And we haven’t even mentioned the exceptional hotels and resorts around Australia.
