APT has announced it is expanding its Cape York and Outback Wilderness Adventures program for 2015. The program, which offers small group touring aboard APT’s custom built 4WD vehicles for a maximum of 20 people, takes guests to some of the most breathtaking destinations in outback Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. 

Due to guest and agent demand, APT is reinstating its Cairns to Darwin itinerary, now named the 14-day Gulf Track to Kakadu. Highlights include a sunset cruise in Karumba, a heli-flight over the Lost City at Cape Crawford and a Guluyambi Cruise along the East Alligator River, as well as the chance to explore Kakadu and see Hawk Dreaming and Cannon Hill. unnamed (8)

Also back by popular demand is the three day extension to APT’s 12-day South Australia tour, which now includes travelling through some of Australia’s most arid terrain along the famous Birdsville Track, along with Coober Pedy and Lake Eyre.

Another new addition for 2015 is the opportunity for guests to extend APT’s lead in 11-day Cooktown and Cape Yorkitinerary with a three night Great Barrier Reef Cruise aboard the Coral Princess II. 

For the most popular tour, the Cooktown and Cape York journey, new for 2015 is a two night stay at Punsand Bay overlooking the tip of Cape York, along with Bramwell Station, a property that APT first supported back in 1975.

As well as the new tour and extensions, in 2015 APT is including all meals on Queensland, South Australia and coastal Western Australia itineraries as well as enabling guests to tailor their holiday to suit their individual preferences through the introduction of APT’s Freedom of Choice touring concept, which has been rolled out across all tours of 11-days or longer.

Guests who travel with APT will enjoy exclusive stays in some of Australia’s leading properties including the Sheraton Mirage Port Douglas; Thala Beach Nature Reserve, Port Douglas; and The Sebel Playford, Adelaide.

Other accommodation exclusive to APT guests in 2015 includes its own network of Wilderness Lodges at Mitchell Falls, Bell Gorge and Bungle Bungle; and the Novotel Barossa Valley.

Great Australian rail journeys featured in the program include the Spirit of the Outback from Brisbane to Longreach; and the Gulflander train journey between Normanton and Croydon.

Rob Tandy, General Manager for APT’s Outback Wilderness Adventures portfolio, says the modified program is in response to guest and agent feedback, “APT is an outback specialist. We have the best team working across our product range and that is reflected in the exceptional quality of our tours. For 2015, we’ve listened to feedback from guests and our travel agency partners, refined our program and in doing so we believe our brochure represents the most exciting collection of premium outback tours available.”
