“Australian Geographic Travel will explore and enlighten while respecting and preserving the diversity and beauty of local wildlife, landscapes, culture and people. Our travellers want an experience with purpose and to develop a deep connection with a destination by supporting and respecting its environment. We are committed to sustainable travel and our travellers will play an active role in contributing to conservation projects around the country.”

Jo Runciman, Managing Director of Australian Geographic said: “Australian Geographic Travel will allow us to foster an even deeper relationship with our audience by connecting them with the natural experiences they crave. This is a unique opportunity to not just read about the awes of the great Australian landscape, wildlife and wilderness, but to actually live it.”
