Botanica Blooms with New Destinations In 2018/2019

Australia's Botanica World Discoveries Tours celebrate the release of its new 2018/19 brochure, which showcases more than 40 garden-themed cruises and tours across six continents, with a host of special airfare deals and savings.

A range of discounted business class airfares, flight credits, and companion fly free offers are available to guests who book selected tours or cruises early. There are also some incredible savings to be made by combining two or more Botanica tours.

New for 2018/19, Botanica will delve deep into the tropical gardens of Sri Lanka, as well as returning to the botanical paradises of South America and South Africa. An extended program in Europe will include a grand train journey on the Golden Eagle Danube Express from Budapest to Venice, and an exclusively chartered river cruise along the Rhine and Moselle rivers will explore castle gardens in this fairy-tale landscape.

As always, the world's most famous flower and garden shows play a starring role in Botanica, with trips designed around visits to London's RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, BBC Gardener's World Live in Birmingham and Dublin in Bloom. Closer to home, Botanica guests can visit the Singapore Garden Festival, the Melbourne Flower & Garden Show, Queensland Garden Expo, Floriade in Canberra, the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers and in New Zealand, the Taranaki Garden Spectacular.

Botanica's boutique cruises and tours are designed to interest gardeners and non-gardeners alike. Travelling with a small-sized group of like-minded people, Botanica holidays are enriched with handpicked cultural experiences that incorporate themes such as history, art and music, as well as general sightseeing.

Accompanied by a knowledgeable Botanical Guide, guests will visit some of the world's most celebrated gardens such as Sissinghurst in England, the Butchart Gardens in Canada, Villandry in France, as well as exclusive private gardens.

Well-known international gardener and TV presenter, Monty Don, is a regular guest-lecturer, as is Rosemary Alexander, the founder of the English Gardening School and regular judge at the Chelsea Flower Show.  The team of Botanical Guides includes well-respected gardening historian, Dr Toby Musgrave, and popular Australian celebrity gardener, Simon Rickard.

It's no wonder that more than 70 per cent of Botanic guests are repeat travellers and proud members of the Botanica Club. Once you travel with Botanica you automatically become a member of the club (which also has reciprocal rights with APT and Travelmarvel clubs), and will receive benefits, discounts and offers on your next Botanica adventure.
