Hi, we’re Ben & Kim Mead, owners of Holidays of Australia & the World, a proudly SA owned and operated travel company located in the CBD. We have a deep love for travel and have recently returned from a family trip to the Cook Islands. Our mission is to share this passion and deliver a memorable holiday experience for our clients through our expert knowledge and personalised customer service.

Let our team bring your travel dreams to life.

Cruise and rail journeys

Both travel modes offer a relaxed and unhurried approach to holidaying, ensuring a stress-free experience. From the moment you step on board the cruise liner or train, you’ll be taken care of by friendly and capable staff. You’ll enjoy delicious food and wine, expertly curated tours, and comfortable accommodation. With seamless transitions between exciting cruises and iconic rail journeys, you can efficiently explore Australia’s breathtaking natural wonders and must-see landmarks.

Cruising is a no-brainer when it comes to leisurely travel. Unpack once as you embark on a holiday cruising the rugged and unspoiled Australian coastline or the majestic fjords of New Zealand, all the while still offering those local sightseeing highlights and cultural experiences. Your time on board can be as slow paced as you like with most of the bigger cruise liners offering included dining options at your leisure, state-of-the art spas and rejuvenating treatments and world-class entertainment, not to mention there’s nothing like a healthy dose of fresh sea air for a natural boost.

Rail travel offers the ideal opportunity to savour a slower pace while journeying through the remote interior regions of the country. Experience one of the iconic locomotive adventures on The Ghan, Indian Pacific, or Great Southern, where you’ll step aboard a luxuriously appointed carriage and be transported through the nation’s rich history and breathtaking scenery. The Off Train Experiences provided are truly extraordinary, offering one-of-a-kind Australian adventures that will leave a lasting impression. Indulge in first-class cuisine, perfectly paired wines, and genuine hospitality, all included to ensure an unforgettable journey.

Holidays of Australia & the World specialise in crafting exclusive cruise and rail packages. Their expert team ensures you have a seamless and extraordinary experience, giving you the chance to cherish the best of this great country.
