We transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.


  • We tailor make each journey, taking into account our guest’s passions and interests. The more you tell us, the more we are able to do this.
  • Our journeys include authentic and local experiences; encounters with local experts and colourful Australian characters.
  • We truly do design our journeys to enrich, surprise, delight and captivate the travellers.
  • We know the intricacies of each region and how best to reveal what makes them special.
  • Our entire team travels to various parts of the country – we are always out & about discovering more.
  • We draw on a big pool of relationships to create unique experiences.
  • We have developed a range of unique ‘Alquemie Exclusive’ touring experiences – only available through Alquemie
  • Our network of contacts around the country is second to none and means we are uniquely well-informed to design an experience of Australia that goes to the heart of the country.
  • Most importantly – our creativity! High-end experiential travel borders on event management. Ask us about the more creative things we have arranged for clients.

Our goal is to leave every guest spellbound after their journey in Australia. With this in mind, we prefer to craft the entire Australian experience from the moment you step onto our beautiful continent. This allows us to reveal the magic of Australia through a carefully constructed itinerary that will enchant, educate and surprise. Our mantra: ‘anybody can book accommodation, where we add value is by layering in the magic’.

With expertise, we will weave together any or all of the following:

Bespoke experiences • Private Tours  • Special interest guides  • Accommodation  • Yacht charter  • Dining  • Air safari • Light aircraft • Jet • Heli • Rail • Transfers • Self-drive

In March 2020 Alquemie hosted PURE Pursuits Australia in conjunction with Tourism Australia – a five-night wilderness journey for leaders of experiential tourism companies from around the world.

Alquemie specialises in creating magical high-end experiential travel and tailor-made itineraries around Australia. Initially aimed at supporting high-end nature based safari experiences across Australia, our portfolio originally included a range of stations, homesteads, bush camps, island and private guides that were off the mainstream tourism radar and were the result of extensive travel and research. This knowledge of and passion for the wilder parts of Australia still runs strongly through the business and has been encapsulated in the experiences we offer.

The business was expanded to offer a broader range of experiences (urban, outback and coastal) across the country to provide a complete tailor-made service across Australia for high-end clients looking for an altogether more immersive experience of Australia. The ethos of the company is in creating experiences around the country that transform the ‘ordinary into the extraordinary’, above and beyond the traditional luxury properties/services that are overtly marketed for Australia.



Our passionate team of specialists bring together leading experts, experiences, and products to tailor an itinerary specific to the interests and profile of each traveller. Each trip has its own unique character and influence.
