Dear Adventurer

am very pleased to report that 2023 has kicked off on an extremely positive note with enquiries and bookings all well above expectation.  Many of you have already been on your winter get-aways, and I've had some heartwarming trip logs, telling me of your memorable experiences and holidays of a life time. This Arctic blast seems to be lingering so if you've not yet been in touch to discuss your escape from winter, don't delay.

Sail a 7- night  circular voyage from Kolkata or try one of the  new 3 and 4-night short cruises between Kolkata and Murshidabad with a one-way first-class train ticket  included.

Australia’s Canning Stock Route  
Journey down the longest and most remote stock route in the world, from Billiluna to Wiluna (or vice-versa). Passing through remote and isolated landscapes, the Canning Stock Route was built in 1910 to break the West Kimberley beef monopoly.

Beginning in Halls Creek and extending all the way to Wiluna in the mid-west, a distance of over 1,800kms, the Canning Stock Route will take you from rugged terrain and sheer isolation to freshwater springs creating oases in the middle of nowhere.
On these small group 4WD expeditions you’ll encounter narrow gorges, sheer cliffs, ancient Aboriginal art sites and engravings of explorers and drovers. The Canning Stock Route is an expedition for the adventurous and an opportunity not to be missed!
