Exploring the Kimberley by Sea

January 10th, 2024|Australian Attractions|

Indigenous art, pearl farms, and top-notch sunsets on a Western Australia cruise. Our Travel Partner, Virtuoso's general manager Australia and New Zealand operations, Fiona Dalton, cruised through the continent’s Kimberley region, a rugged and mostly inaccessible stretch of Australia's northwest coast, proved a welcome chance to reconnect with her favorite school subject: geology. On a seven-night sailing from Kuri Bay to Broom aboard Ponant’s 32-passenger Le Ponant, she hiked, swam, and observed ancient dinosaur footprints in a landscape she’d always dreamed of seeing, with insight from the line’s expedition team and a sleek perch to return to each day.Here, Dalton shares what she learned on her Kimberley cruise.

Uluru and Kata Tjuta with Longitude 131 Luxury Lodge

March 30th, 2021|Australian Attractions|

On a recent trip to Uluru and Kata Tjuta, I went to “see the rock” but left with a newfound understanding, and spiritual respect for this iconic Australian location. It was an experience that I think every Australian should have! And if you want to really experience something special and really connect to the heartland the best place to stay is Longitude 131. You go to this area to visit Uluru, so nothing is better than staying in a luxury tented pavilion with the view of Uluru from your bed, your deck, and the restaurant lounge. Dotted amongst the sand-dunes the sixteen pavilions are luxury whilst being homely and welcoming. With views to Uluru from the bed, or the outdoor day bed on the deck, you could be forgiven for wanting to stay in your tent!!! And, returning from the lounge after dinner on a cool winter evening, to enjoy a nightcap on your private deck with a lit fireplace and blankets, to look up and see the starry sky was just [...]
