Featured Art Tour

Join a privileged small group on an adventure by private jet into the remote reaches of Western Australia and Northern Territory.

Travelling with you are two experts in their field – a Top End resident and proud ambassador of indigenous Australia and a Melbourne specialist on Aboriginal art whose connections allow special access to invitation only indigenous art centres.

You’ll visit isolated Aboriginal communities, marvel at ancient rock art, see one of the country’s biggest open cut iron ore mines, experience the natural wonders of Ningaloo Reef and explore the Kimberley wilderness around Berkeley River and the spiritual and remote areas of Arnhem Land.

Accommodation has been hand-picked for its location and experiences and all meals and drinks are included. There are no added extras.

Travelling by private jet there’s room to spread out with luxurious Business Class seats, First Class food and beverage in flight and generous luggage allowance. To access Berkeley River and Arnhem Land, we use smaller private aircraft.

This tour is led by Bill Zammit, principle Aboriginal Art Connections, and Aboriginal Art specialist Vivien Anderson

For more information contact Bill Zammit on 0408 741 795.
