Take to the Skies by Private Jet

Wing your way to new heights and discover some of Australia’s most remote locations from above, writes Gary Walsh. 

Your private jet is soaring, painting elegant and expansive figure-eights in the sky. The wings dip gently, and the view from the window – it might be of the Outback or the Red Centre, the remote Kimberley or the Great Barrier Reef – is simply spectacular. Welcome to the world of APT’s new Private Jet Air Tours

Private air travel with APT is a revelation. It gets you to your destination quicker, there are stunning sights to be seen on the way thanks to uniquely designed flight paths, and you have more time to explore on the ground when you get there.

Our 8 Day Kimberley and West Coast Horizons by Private Jet tour takes you from tropical Darwin to the gourmet delights of Margaret River. You’ll land in Katherine, Kununurra, Broome, Exmouth, Kalgoorlie and Busselton, with extensive touring included – cruising on Nitmiluk Gorge and Chamberlain Gorge; a dive into Broome’s unique culture and architecture; a cruise over Ningaloo Reef as you look for whale sharks; and exploring wineries and chocolate-makers in Margaret River. Along the way, you’ll enjoy bird’s-eye views of the Bungle Bungle Range in Purnululu National Park, glorious Cape Leveque and more.

The 9 Day Queensland Outback and Tropics by Private Jet tour begins in Sydney or Brisbane and flies to Longreach and, appropriately for a trip by private jet, explores the Qantas Founders Museum. Mount Isa follows, and then the tropics beckon, with a flight to Horn Island in the Torres Strait and a boat transfer to Thursday Island. 
You’ll discover the meaning of ‘TI time’ in this relaxed and relaxing place as you tour Thursday Island and visit Cape York. The flight from Horn Island to Cairns takes a scenic path along the coast and over the Great Barrier Reef, which you then visit from Port Douglas during a two-night stay. A night on Hamilton Island caps off the itinerary
No route is as varied as that of the 7 Day Southern Ocean to Top End by Private Jet trip. From Melbourne, your private jet tracks along the Victorian coastline and the Great Ocean Road to Kangaroo Island. You’ll meet the sea lions at Seal Bay and visit Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery. Fly to Port Augusta and travel by coach to Wilpena Pound in the heart of Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park.
Your flight to Uluru offers views of Wilpena Pound, the mysterious Marree Man, Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre, and then the iconic sights of Kata Tjuta and Uluru itself. Mornings are spent watching the sunrise over Uluru and viewing the luminous Field of Light installation. A short flight to Alice Springs offers views of Kings Canyon, and in ‘The Alice’ there are visits to the Royal Flying Doctor Service and Simpson Gap. The last stop before Darwin is Katherine for a cruise on Nitmiluk Gorge.

The 5 Day Wonders of Tasmania by Private Jet offers departures from Brisbane and Sydney for a five-day bite of the Apple Isle and King Island, all by private jet. This lush dot in Bass Strait punches above its weight in terms of world-class produce. The famous King Island Dairy is an essential stop. Then it’s on to Tasmania proper, and the majestic scenery of Cradle Mountain, with a walk around Dove Lake as an option.
In Hobart, the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is the chief attraction. This provocative museum challenges, intrigues and amazes in equal measure. A visit to historic and genteel Richmond, famed for its convict-built stone bridge, offers an experience of an altogether different kind. Your trip ends with Salamanca Market, where you can indulge in delicious Tasmanian fare.
On every journey, stay at places where you will have the opportunity to enjoy stunning outlooks and luxurious rooms, such as Oaks Cable Beach in Broome, Pullman Bunker Bay Resort in Margaret River, the Reef View Hotel on Hamilton Island, Oaks Port Douglas, Sails in the Desert at Uluru and the Cradle Mountain Hotel.

Dining will feature memorable events including an Outback-themed welcome dinner in Longreach, lunch and a tasting at a landmark Margaret River winery, lunch on board your Ningaloo Reef cruise, a bush barbecue in Alice Springs, and a seafood dinner at Mures Upper Deck in Hobart with views overlooking Victoria Dock. Wherever you go and whatever you do, Private Jet Air Tours will provide an unforgettable means of travel, where getting there is half the fun.
