Taking your top performers on an incentive trip creates once-in-a-lifetime memories that motivate your participants to work hard every year. While most Australians love to travel outside of the country, there are years where an overseas destination isn’t the right fit for your organisation. Not to worry – here are a few bucket-list gems that are just as impressive as international locations.

Stunning sunrises and sunsets create the perfect backdrop for adventure. If your group won’t mind a little dust on their boots, they’ll find a variety of activities that are low-, medium- and high-impact. Accommodations at the Sails in the Desert Hotel, and conference space for 10 to 420 people at Uluru Meeting Place.

Most surprising: the high quality of the food and beverage options across venues.

Over the top: helicopter ride around Uluru on the way to Tali Wiru for a sunset, open-air dining experience that combines indigenous culture and the finest gastronomic fare.

Breathe in the world’s cleanest air while sipping on some of Australia’s premium wines. Both wilderness and sophistication are available to delight your group. Accommodations at The Henry Jones Art Hotel, with conference space at the same venue for 10 to 300 people.

Most surprising: there are 2,910 accommodation rooms and counting.

Over the top: Cruise through the waterways of the River Derwent on the luxurious Peppermint Bay II catamaran, complete with local wine and elegant canapes made of ingredients sourced locally from Bruny Island.

For a truly relaxed get-away, the isolated beauty of this west coast destination can’t be topped. Much of the area has yet to be developed to accommodate average tourists, so your group may find that there isn’t quite enough night life. If they’re happy with a stunning amount of day-time activities, they’ll enjoy this venue. Accommodations at Cable Beach Club, with conference space at the same venue for 10 to 200.

Most surprising: the geological treasures at 350 million-year-old Bungle Bungle Range.

Over the top: Board a seaplane at Talbot Bay to see one of the top wonders of the world – Horizontal Falls; then enjoy a fresh barramundi BBQ lunch.
