Private Australia tours are perfect for those who prefer the flexibility and freedom of travelling without a group. Choose from the suggested itineraries below, built by Cox & Kings experts, or use these as inspiration to create your own journey.
Visit the highlights of Australia while sleeping in style, take a cruise through the beautiful Kimberley region, travel along the world famous Ghan from one tip of the country to the other, or choose to travel on your own steam – taking a self-drive adventure from Sydney to Melbourne.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
