Inspiring Journeys has released its Australia & New Zealand 2015-2016 brochure featuring 11 boutique small group journeys. It is the first standalone brochure for the luxury brand since its launch in 2011.
“The Inspiring Journeys product is pretty special and so we’re thrilled to see it showcased in a standalone brochure, the first since the inaugural brochure four years ago. The product has benefited so much by being under the umbrella brand of AAT Kings – a brand that people know and trust. As a result we have seen sales grow steadily and we now feel the time is right for it to once again be featured in a dedicated brochure,” says AAT Kings managing director Anthony Hayes.
“Travel trade support has been essential to the success of Inspiring Journeys; our renewed focus on trade relationships has meant that our travel agent partners receive excellent commission. The brochure has been designed to reflect the luxury experience guests will have with Inspiring Journeys so I urge agents to use it as a selling tool when speaking to potential guests,” said Hayes.
Each Inspiring Journeys experience has been carefully considered with personalisation of experience at the very fore so agents can feel confident selling to their most discerning clients. Guests travel in small groups of up to 20 like-minded travellers, with no children under 12 years of age. They’ll stay in boutique retreats that are the absolute best available accommodation in each location, indulge in gourmet cuisine, travel in luxury coaches or 4WD vehicles and have truly immersive experiences such as dining ‘Under a Desert Moon’ in Kings Canyon, meeting a member of the Archer family who have owned and operated Tasmania’s Quamby Estate for seven generations or staying in eco-friendly accommodation in a New Zealand forest.
The brochure features a new 7-day Tasmanian Harvest journey travelling from Hobart to Launceston. Guests stay at the Henry Jones Art Hotel in Hobart, iconic country manor Quamby Estate and Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge. They will have a three course degustation dinner at The Source at Mona – the only tour group to do so, a walking tour of Hobart with a focus on the early colonial days and the role alcohol consumption played complete with tastings at a whiskey distillery, boutique cider house and wine cellar and enjoy freshly shucked pacific oysters on Bruny Island. At Quamby Estate, guests can explore the grounds on foot or bike and find a scenic spot to take their gourmet picnic basket. After visiting produce and farm-gate sellers in the Meander Valley they will have a full day to explore Cradle Mountain.
