Exclusive Australia hosted by Ian Swain

Ardmore, PA: Luxury travel provider, SWAIN announces an exclusive, escorted travel experience to Australia for 2012, hosted by company founders and owners, Ian and Linda Swain. In celebration of the company’s 25th Anniversary, Ian Swain has personally crafted a premier escorted tour to some of Australia’s most notable destinations, including stays at many of the country’s premier luxury lodges. Limited to just 24 passengers, SWAIN’s 16 day/15-night, 25th Anniversary Experience has a single tour departure of Nov. 2nd, 2012.

“Over these past 25 years, I have visited many exceptional properties and have enjoyed many incredible experiences,” comments Ian Swain. “I am proud of my homeland and love showing it off to North Americans so I wanted to create a very special trip which includes some of the best Australia has to offer. I have hand-picked each property and have selected fantastic excursions, which make up this over-the-top itinerary. This will truly be a very special experience for those who join me and Linda.”

The Australian journey begins in Hobart, Tasmania with a night’s stay at The Henry Jones Art Hotel. Featured here is a special behind-the-scenes experience at Bonorong Wildlife Refuge and a visit to MONA, the newly-opened Museum of Old and New Art. Three nights are spent at Tasmania’s premier property, Saffire Freycinet including a tour of Schouten Island and a prized Freycinet Oyster experience - one of Ian’s favorite Aussie experiences. Participants will then enjoy a three-night stay at the Langham Melbourne to explore the city’s chic culture, tour the Great Ocean Road by helicopter and visit an authentic working sheep station. The tour then heads to qualia, Great Barrier Reef for a three-night luxury island stay, before stepping out into the Bush for three nights at Emirates’ Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa. The grand finale takes place in Sydney at the Four Seasons with an afternoon Sydney Harbour Cruise, Bridge Climb, and a very special farewell dinner to complete this once-in-a-lifetime Australian experience.
