A swag of WILD gift ideas!

Nov 28, 2016

The magic of Christmas lies in sharing experiences. Sharing food, raising glasses, taking pictures that become more precious over time. If you're thinking of giving the best gift of all, the gift of experience, the team at Wild Bush Luxury have got it all wrapped up in Australia's wild outback. And you can 'have your cake and eat it too' as they will send a beautiful bottle of vintage Joseph Sparkling Red from the McLaren Vale wine country, down the road from Arkaba, on any of these experiences given as Christmas gifts.

Wild Tastes of the Top End

Hunting and gathering for the Christmas table can't be compared to foraging for this Wild Bush masterpiece feast in the Top End with James Viles in May 2017. James is the owner and chef of two hatted Biota Dining - voted one of Gourmet Traveller's Top 100 restaurants in Australia this year. James will share his knowledge and passion for local ingredients, textures and flavours that exist alongside each other in nature at Bamurru Plains. He'll show you how food is the ultimate connection with the environment that sustains us. How cooking changes to art and how nature nourishes us in the most simple yet sophisticated ways.

Top End Wilderness Photo Safari

It's tough to get the family together for some holiday snaps. It might be easier with some lessons up your sleeve (or in your Christmas swag) after spending five days on safari with Richard I'Anson, founder of Lonely Planet Images. Richard will share his craft with you and just a handful of others on our Top End Wilderness Photo Safari at Bamurru Plains in April 2017. Under Richard's guidance, sought the world over, we promise an experience forever immortalised in your stunning images: private wetland wilderness brimming with wildlife; faces of the people; the world's oldest rock art galleries in faraway Arnhem Land and images of you living this incredible Wild Bush Luxury experience.

Walk, Wilderness & Wine

Grab your nearest and dearest and wander through our private wilderness in the Flinders Ranges on the Arkaba Walk. Join us on any available walk with departures every week March - October 2017. Slow down over four glorious days and sleep in a swag under a star studded sky. Soak up the ancient mountain ranges, spot loads of wildlife and enjoy fine South Australian food and wine. And we now take care of your transfers from Adelaide to Arkaba - one way by air and the other by road, via the Clare Valley wine country. This is a Great Walk of Australia. This is outback walking in style.

Vintage Joseph Sparkling Red

What's so good about this South Australian drop you ask? Well, we love it for its uniquely Australian wine style, it's regarded by many as the perfect Christmas turkey wine match, it will cellar for a fair while and the label even looks Christmassy. Good enough to gift! And thanks to Daily Drop, it's delivered free to your door with any Wild Bush Luxury gift voucher arranged by 4pm Wednesday 21 December. One bottle per booking representing a value of $90.

For further information or to make your purchase, please phone 1300 790 561 (Australia) or +61 2 9571 6399 (International).
