AUSTRALIA

The great Outback is a rugged land ripe for exploration enhanced by vibrant cityscapes primed for cosmopolitan indulgence. On your bespoke holiday to Australia, wander off the beaten path by glamping on the dunes of Western Australia's Cape Range National Park and delve into local history with a visit to Aboriginal tribes.


Or, sign up for quintessential Australian experiences by embarking on a road trip along one of the most iconic routes in the world, the Great Ocean Road, or around the beautiful island of Tasmania.


Got wildlife on your radar? Frolic with native animals at Kangaroo Island. While in the South, contribute to the Tasmanian devil conservation effort and journey to see the Southern Lights, one of the most mesmerising phenomena known to the human eye. The UNESCO World Heritage-inscribed Great Barrier Reef, the planet's largest living structure, is a must-visit while in Queensland; opt for a specially arranged private snorkelling tour or diving trip to fully appreciate its majestic beauty from up close.


For gourmet indulgence on your bespoke holiday to Australia, the Margaret River region will surely tick the right boxes with all the best local produce the country has to offer, as will Mornington Peninsula and the up-and-coming Orange and Mudgee. Drink your fill of award-winning wines at the likes of Barossa Valley, Hunter Valley and Yarra Valley, or relax at boutique wine producers at more local regions such as Adelaide Hills and Shoalhaven.


Explore the iconic cities on your own terms – take luxury up one notch in celebrated experiences with intimate or behind-the-scenes indulgences. From climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge to going on a street art tour in Melbourne to exploring fossil sites and geological formations to immersing in Aboriginal culture, your bespoke holiday to Australia can truly be stirring and exhilarating.


UPDATE: Vaccinated Travel Lane – Singapore Australia Travel Bubble

Quarantine-free travel is possible for the fully vaccinated under the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) initiative.


Among the VTL conditions, travellers must have been vaccinated for at least two weeks, travel on a designated VTL flight to enter Singapore, have remained in a VTL destination or Singapore for 14 consecutive days, and undertake COVID-19 testing (PCR or professionally-administered ART within 48 hours of departing for Singapore and an unsupervised self-administered ART within 24 hours of arrival in Singapore, with results reported via https://www.sync.gov.sg).


Currently, vaccinated travellers from Singapore can enter Australia with proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR (within 3 days of departure) or ART (within 24 hours of departure). A Digital Passenger Declaration must be submitted within 72 hours of departing for Australia. Travellers are to undertake a self-administered rapid test within 12-24 hours of arrival (depending on the state); a state check-in mobile app may also be required for entry into indoor premises, attractions and events.


Generally, children aged under 5 years are exempt from the pre-departure testing. Those aged under 12 years count as fully vaccinated.


For further information, please refer to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority's VTL guide, the Australian Government website on entering Australia and the State and Territory Information webpage.
