“I have been traveling to Australia for more than a decade now, and it keeps drawing me back again and again because I discover more to enjoy single every time. The country is vast and has so many facets, so many nooks and crannies as yet unexplored by travelers that the opportunities to find something unique, something off the beaten track are almost endless. This journey fits in well with our other adventures in this country in terms of Big Five being fully sustainable in Australia.”

“There are so many choices across so many spectrums to see Australia and New Zealand. In 2003, our CEO and founder, Mahen, asked me to launch Australia and New Zealand. My first visit to the region left me, well, disappointing, and feeling that the journey was contrived. What I saw in the luxury realm was simply the same bus tour routes adapted with luxury hotels. Like you, I crave authenticity, and that sense of personal discovery. Over the next 13 years, my team and I worked to develop a sustainable product for the region. It was really a lot of fun doing the research and the countless visits led to epiphany after epiphany. We redefined the idea of luxury travel in Australia and New Zealand. What resulted is an authentic journey that fits our model of sustainability as well as provides you with an exceptional experience.” Ashish Sanghrajka

“When I first visited Australia years ago, I admit I came away disappointed. What I saw was the same problem I had seen elsewhere – there was no separation between private tours and rings of buses all headed to exactly the same places. There was no distinctiveness. Australia is currently enjoying one of the biggest tourism booms in its history but its tourism industry has focused all their marketing efforts on the same handful of places. Indeed 95% of the travelers are still being funneled into the same molds, whether they were private clients or mass market. I have never been one to follow others. I want to find a way to make a difference, even in a first world country. This is ingrained our entire Big Five team, so we serve the five percent of travelers who share our vision. And we look deeper and farther afield to give our guests something more and at the same time give back to the people who live there.” Ashish Sanghrajka
