Australian luxury travel specialist, The Tailor, is commemorating 25 years of pioneering Australian hand-crafted journeys in 2024 with the release of a new 4-week long itinerary that celebrates Australia’s unique heritage and iconic destinations, legends, and landmarks.
Founded in 1998 by Drew Kluska, The Tailor is recognised as the originator of five-star experiential luxury travel in Australia. Dedicated to off-the-beaten-path travel, with a distinctly luxurious edge, for a quarter of a century, The Tailor has curated journeys for discerning travellers that transcend the ordinary and deliver enriching, life-affirming experiences.
To recognise its 25th anniversary, The Tailor has crafted a bespoke journey that honours Australian culture, both ancient and modern, and the destinations and characters that make Australia one of the most sought-after experiential destinations in the world.
Available year-round, the Iconic Australia: Sea, City and Culture trip commences at the Capella Sydney and will include visits to Kangaroo Island, the Barossa Valley, Uluru, the outback, Brome, a week-long Kimberley cruise aboard AKIKO, the Daintree, Great Barrier Reef and Lizard Island.
Kluska, The Tailor’s Founder and Managing Director, said in an era where travel is synonymous with travellers seeking experiences that endure a lifetime, The Tailor has hand-crafted an itinerary that leverages the company’s extensive collective knowledge and expertise to deliver a truly transformative adventure.
“The best journeys are built on providing privileged access to special people, incredible destinations and once-in-lifetime experiences,” Kluska said.
“With a nod to the origin story of The Tailor, championing off-the-beaten-path travel, with the first families of Australian luxury at the forefront of this journey, travellers will be whisked across the country to some of the most memorable destinations in Australia – from the unspoiled natural beauty of Kangaroo Island to the rugged frontier of the Kimberely aboard a private yacht and an island stay on the Great Barrier Reef.
“It’s an itinerary that is built around legendary people and iconic Australian luxury brands like Paspaley Pearls, R.M.Williams and Baillie Lodges, to name a few, including stand-out new luxe experiences at properties such as Capella Sydney and Southern Ocean Lodge.
“Another highlight of this journey is the ability to visit four of the most significant rock art styles in Australia.”

“I want to also take this opportunity to thank our team here at The Tailor, in particular our CEO Kirsty Siekmann who has been with the business for more than 20 years, and our suppliers and travel partners for their continued support,” Kluska added.
“Their unwavering commitment, dedication, and shared passion for creating extraordinary journeys have driven us to consistently seek out and deliver the very best in experiential luxury travel. Together, we have significantly shaped the Australian luxe experiential industry, and we look forward to continuing this remarkable journey of excellence with their invaluable collaboration.”
