Bali has long been a favourite Aussie holiday destination, but there’s so much more to this enchanting island than what most visitors see. We designed our newest Bali trips to whisk you away from the well-trodden tourist hotspots and guide you through some of the island’s lesser-explored but equally mesmerising destinations.
Prepare to be inspired by breathtaking landscapes, immerse yourself in Bali’s rich culture, and indulge in unforgettable experiences that will leave you craving more.
So, whether you’re a seasoned Bali explorer or planning your first-ever trip to this tropical haven, get ready to fall in love with a side of Bali you never knew existed. Let the adventure begin!
Ubud: The Artistic and Cultural Heart of Bali
We start our journey in Ubud, nestled amidst lush green rice terraces and enchanting rainforests. This charming town is renowned for its vibrant arts scene, captivating traditional dance performances, and exquisite craftsmanship, making it an absolute must-visit for anyone seeking an authentic Balinese experience.
Wander through the bustling local markets, where you’ll find a treasure trove of unique handicrafts, intricate wood carvings, and colourful textiles. Visit the sacred Monkey Forest, home to over 700 cheeky long-tailed macaques, and explore the ancient temples that dot the area, each with its own story to tell.
All three of our itineraries include a half-day tour of Ubud and the surrounding area. There’s also plenty of free time to join a traditional cooking class or participate in a yoga workshop. And after a busy day exploring, you can unwind at one of Ubud’s many luxurious spas, where you can indulge in a soothing massage or rejuvenating treatment.
Nusa Dua: A Luxurious Oasis of Tranquility and Pristine Beaches
Our Essentials and Adventurer itineraries also include the idyllic peninsula of Nusa Dua, an exclusive haven for those seeking a serene escape amidst some of Bali’s most luxurious villas and resorts. With some of the best beaches in Bali, world-class accommodations, and unparalleled natural beauty, Nusa Dua offers the perfect sanctuary for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Nusa Penida: Unspoiled Beauty and Off-the-Beaten-Track Adventures
As our journey continues, we set sail for the captivating island of Nusa Penida, a hidden gem nestled just off the southeastern coast of Bali. With its dramatic limestone cliffs, azure waters, and untouched landscapes, Nusa Penida is a paradise for intrepid travellers.
Kelingking Beach is one of Nusa Penida’s many attractions, where you’ll be greeted by one of the most iconic views in Bali: a striking, T-Rex-shaped cliff jutting out into the shimmering ocean. The descent to the beach below may be challenging, but the reward of pristine sands and crystalline waters is well worth the effort.
Gili Islands: A Trio of Tropical Escapes
While not technically part of Bali, the enchanting Gili Islands are just a short boat trip away and offer an irresistible extension to your Balinese adventure. This captivating archipelago comprises three distinct islands, each boasting its own unique personality and charm – from laidback island life and fantastic dive sites to vibrant full moon parties.
Our Bali Explorer and Adventurer trips take you to the largest and most popular of the trio, Gili Trawangan, affectionately known as Gili T. Here, you’ll discover a captivating blend of natural beauty, exhilarating activities, and thriving nightlife, making it the perfect destination for those seeking both relaxation and excitement.
Day Trip Destinations: Explore Beyond Bali’s Beaten Path
One of the best things about our Bali trips is the ample free time we’ve built in, allowing you to venture off on your own and discover even more of the less touristy places in Bali. Here are a few day trip destinations worth considering during your downtime, each offering a unique and memorable experience.
● Escape to the tranquil highlands of Munduk, where lush greenery, cascading waterfalls, and refreshing mountain air create the perfect setting for a day of hiking and adventure.
● Overlooking the majestic Mount Batur and the serene Lake Batur, Kintamani offers every visitor a diverse range of attractions. Unwind in the mineral-rich hot springs, treat yourself to a freshly brewed cup of coffee at one of Kintamani’s charming coffee shops, or enjoy a delicious meal at a local warung with a backdrop of the imposing volcano.
● Venture to Bali’s lesser-known northeast coast, where the coastal town of Candi Dasa and its surrounding areas await your discovery. Unearth hidden beaches, indulge your sweet tooth with a visit to Charly’s Chocolate Factory and step back in time as you explore the enchanting Tirta Gangga Royal Water Palace, with its ornate fountains, lush gardens, and koi-filled ponds.
