Sydney with a twist – Sign up for a surf lesson with Layne Beachley, former world surf champion or flex the credit card with a private shopping trip to buy pearls with a member of the legendary Paspaley pearling family.

Taste South Australia – Take a heli tour to Penfolds Block 42 in the Barossa to meet with a Master of Wine for a private tasting and lunch. In fact, Exsus has confidently dubbed South Australia as the world's food and wine capital and has created an impressive and informative site to explain why this is no idle boast. Read more here.

Tuck into Tasmania – Enjoy the ‘Paddock to Plate' culinary experience at The Agrarian Kitchen with Rodney Dunn, formerly the Food Editor at Australian Gourmet Traveller and Australia's equivalent to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Or opt for a totally Tasmanian bush tucker experience, cooked by a true “Bush Chef”, Craig Williams. Try Craig's wallaby steaks with pepper-berry sauce, lemon myrtle spiced local trout or fresh lobster complimented by a glass or two of fine Tasmanian wine.

Dial A for Adventure –Take a Motorbike Safari to Cape York with legend and ‘loveable larrikin', Nigel Coleman as your guide or a Helicopter Safari into Arnhem Land with local legend Sab Lord who is renowned for his special relationship with local Aboriginal communities.

Go on a gourmet odyssey – Take a culinary heli-adventure with The Food Source, unearthing some of New Zealand's freshest produce and finest locations, including a personal tour of Marlborough Wine Country with the winemakers. Source fresh seafood direct from the ocean from a remote beach on Marlborough Sounds where a Michelin trained chef prepares your catch.

Meet the locals – Join the Ngati Pikiao Tribe for a Hangi feast cooked underground in an Umu or earth oven. Afterwards take off for a white water rafting river journey, passing through spectacular native bush amidst pristine beauty.

Plunge the depths – Head out on a private fishing and diving excursion in Dusky Sound. The diving here is unlike anywhere else in the world as the fresh water layer stops light reaching normal depths resulting in easy access to deep water species such as black coral.

Get spiritual – take a scenic flight over spectacular Northland to Cape Reinga, the northernmost point of New Zealand where the crashing turmoil of the Tasman Sea and mighty Pacific collide. The splendid isolation and location of the Spirit Tree creates an extremely spiritual place. Track wild horses and journey through Aupouri Forest to 90 Mile Beach on a quad biking adventure.

For Exsus, crafting the perfect bespoke itinerary for each client is paramount, which is where their unparalleled destination knowledge comes into play, allowing them to cherry pick the best guides in their respective fields and to select the best experiences.
