You’re in good hands with a crew experienced in private charter itinerary planning for private air charter to some of the most majestic and off-the-beaten-track locations you can imagine:
1. Broome’s Camel Train in Cable Beach, Western Australia
A laid back, quaint town once the centre of a vibrant pearl industry, Broome is renowned for its unusually stunning blend of turquoise sea shades, white sands and bright orange stones. Its oasis of colour is shaped by a multicultural mix of Japanese, Filipino and Malay culture, thanks to history of eclectic settlers who arrived in droves to seek their fortunes cultivating pearls.
Splash out on a pearl (or two) in Chinatown - as the ultimate memento of your trip - or stroll along its fine art galleries, shops and cafes.
Broome's charm is justifiably world-famous and it’s the coveted place to watch a western sunset on a balmy, tropical night. The most popular vantage point for doing so is on camel-back at Cable Beach, a 22 kilometres long stretch of white sand and warm, crystal waters.
The gateway to the Western Kimberley, Broome is a direct two and a half hour flight from Perth but a whole world away.
2. Kangaroo Island, South Australia
Pummelled by the waves of the Southern Ocean, ‘KI’ (as locals affectionately call it) is a sanctuary for wildlife and natural, rugged beauty.
A mix of small townships, rural land and wilderness, Australia’s third largest island is the ideal location to come face to face with Australian fauna in the wild - from the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoo to goannas, possums, echidnas, Fairy Penguins and Tammar Wallabies (now almost extinct on the mainland) as well as such endemic species as the shy Sooty Dunnart. Larger mammals include Western Grey Kangaroos, seals, sea-lions, dolphins and at times Southern Right Whales that calve in the sheltered bays.
Since Aboriginal occupation 10,000 years ago, and a French claim to it in 1804, the island has developed a variety of ‘boutique’ agricultural industries, including eucalyptus oil production, dairy products, bee keeping and viticulture. You will be able to kayak along the pristine Harriet River’s wetlands or hike through KI’s dense forest and towering sand dunes.
When the day comes to a close, share stories from a swag, under a blanket of stars, or in one of the various luxury resorts in the island. KI has it all.
3. The Whitsunday Islands, Queensland
Whether you’re seeking romance or the relaxation only island adventure can offer, the 74 islands of the luscious and tropical Whitsundays will provide it. Nine hundred kilometres north of Brisbane, the commercial centre and only airstrip is located on Hamilton Island. Besides being one of the most popular yachting, snorkelling and diving destinations in the Southern Hemisphere, the Whitsundays offers activities for all ages and budgets - from golf courses set against ocean views, to go-karts, wildlife and reef exploration, fishing, sailing, para-sailing and more.
But the best part of it all? With only eight of these idyllic islands being inhabited, you have the opportunity to make them your personal paradise and enjoy lush national parks, gorgeous beaches and coral-laden ocean waters leisurely and hassle-free. Or if you prefer the solitude of the sea, you can charter a yacht to skipper yourself or take a cruise and sail the pristine waters of the Pacific.
For those who prefer to get close to nature, the Ngaro Sea Trail Great Walk is a mix of seaways and short walks crossing South Molle, Hook and Whitsunday islands. Follow the footsteps of the archipelago's traditional owners walking, by kayak, or sailing or and camp overnight at any of the eight camping areas available on the three islands.
4. Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia
Declared as a World Heritage Area on 24 June 2011, Ningaloo Reef and Cape Range National Park comprise an immense upward fold of limestone originally formed below the sea. Its massive system of sinkholes and caves are home to an extraordinary collection of cave-dwelling and aquatic animals found nowhere else in the world.
Ningaloo Reef is the longest western fringing coral reef and one of the last healthy major coral reef systems in the world. The uniqueness of this 300km long, virtually untouched barrier lies in the fact that visitors are able to walk from the beach straight on to a coral reef to come up close and personal with its profound biodiversity, including more than 500 species of tropical fish, 220 species of coral and 600 types of mollusk.
At certain times of the year Ningaloo is home to Whale Sharks, the world's largest fish and Humpback whales migrate through the area twice annually. Endangered marine creatures including loggerhead, dugongs, manta rays, green and hawksbill turtles, which each depend on the Ningaloo reef and coastal ecosystems for food, refuge, breeding and nesting, making it a must-see for divers, snorkelers and nature-lovers.
Above ground, Cape Range National Park covers 50,831 hectares comprising tranquil beaches, rugged ranges and magnificent canyons and plenty of unique Australian fauna like rock wallabies, red kangaroo, emus, eighty species of reptiles, and over one hundred species of birds live on the cape.
5. The Kimberley Coast, Western Australia
When it comes to remoteness, nothing compares to Western Australia’s Kimberly Coast for vastness, rugged land and archipelagos
Three times the size of England, the Kimberley region is one of the earliest settled regions in the country, with first arrivals recorded about 41,000 years ago. Stretching approximately 13,000km of coastline, there are more than 2,633 islands and an extensive system of reefs best visible from the comfort of a private aircraft. Australia’s largest inshore reef, world class sea grass meadows, extensive mangrove forests, Western Australia’s greatest diversity of corals, wild rivers and the world’s largest population of Humpback whales.
Hidden amongst this harshly beautiful coastline lay some remarkable stories of natural and human endeavor; of thousands of years of indigenous inhabitation; of Australia's pearling history, and a rich and diverse habitat almost untouched by the modern world. Visit Kuri Bay, home to Australia's first cultured pearl farm and immerse yourself in one of Australia's most beautiful environments as well as the stories entwined with it.
Only a select few people have the privilege of enjoying these unique holiday experiences. You can be one of them, thanks to Corporate Air.
