AAT Kings Announces Australia & New Zealand 2022-2023 Tour Season with new, incredible experiences


Feb. 7, 2022 – With recent news that Australia is re-opening to international travelers this month, and New Zealand to follow suit, Australia and New Zealand tour specialist, AAT Kings, had announced its 2022-2023 Guided Holiday tour season with an industry-first interactive brochure, along with new tour experiences aimed at celebrating a new era of travel.


Alongside the launch of its 2022-23 season, the group is also thrilled to unveil its new brand campaign ‘Wild Awaits’, which is centered on awakening the senses of travelers and sparking an enriched enjoyment of Australia and New Zealand.


AAT Kings’ 100+ year history is an adventure story, filled with pioneering characters, passionate storytellers, cultural connection and pushing boundaries to create remarkable experiences. ‘Wild Awaits’ focuses on the places, stories and tastes of Australia and New Zealand. From the landscapes on the journey, to food and drink that immerses guests into the destination, stories from local people and the unexpected experiences on offer, AAT Kings invites guests to embark on a new adventure.


AAT Kings’ new season offerings include experiences such as getting close to nature on Kangaroo Island and touring a privately owned conservancy that is rehabilitating native plants and wildlife that were devastated by the 2020 bushfires. Another standout element to the new season tours includes a host of fresh and one-off Be My Guest experiences – think a walking tour in Sydney’s trendy Newtown neighborhood followed by a masterclass at Batch Brewer or lunch on Bondi Beach, and a cruise of Stewart Island in New Zealand.


To bring these experiences to life for guests when planning their next holiday, AAT Kings’ new digital brochures are packed with interactive elements, including embedded videos, pop up animations and immersive timelines. Designed with the user in mind to make the research, planning and booking phase as seamless and enjoyable as possible.


To celebrate the launch of AAT Kings 2022-23 season, the group is also offering major deals on its recently launched itineraries.

About AAT Kings:

A century ago, the Australian outback was but a twinkle in most travelers’ eyes. But thanks to visionaries like the Pyke family and Bill King, the way we explore the Land Down Under was about to change in unimaginable ways. Over the coming decades, maps were unfolded, desert cruisers and coaches were customized, and guides were trained. From humble beginnings, the company now known as AAT Kings was going places few had gone before, pioneering new paths across Australia and New Zealand and taking intrepid travelers on a wild and wonderful ride.


We’ve come a long way and clocked a few kilometers in the process. But some things will never change. Like our spirit for adventure. Our oh-so-knowledgeable Travel Directors. The local characters we meet (and will never forget) along the way. The epic, goosebump-inducing stories we’re told by First Nations guides. The life-changing experiences on offer – the kind that only 100 years of exploring affords. We’ve never been more passionate about our next discovery. Join us, and fall in love with Australia and New Zealand all over again.
