We asked: Where do the travel experts go on holidays?

EVER wondered where the travel experts go on holidays? 

We have! 

Which is why we asked five AAT Kings travel directors just where their favourite destinations were for a short, or long break. 

Here's what hey said:

Favourite holiday destination: Tasmania. Tasmania is a world unto itself. Its pristine wilderness remains largely untouched and that alongside its abundant wildlife, fresh produce and gourmet wines make it truly exceptional. Tasmania has some of the most amazing walks in the world. You can marvel at the beauty of Cradle Mountain while you breathe what feels like the cleanest air on earth. 

Favourite thing to do there: Mt Field National Park is absolutely stunning as well as being Tassie's first national park. Russell Falls is particularly beautiful and a must-see.The tree-tiered waterfall is a stunning sight. One of the best things about being a travel director is bringing a smile to our guests' faces as they fall in love with Australia.

Favourite holiday destination: The Kimberley. I have been bringing guests to the Kimberley area for over 14 years and I'm passionate about introducing guests to the indigenous people and stories of this land. The landscape is both rugged and remote, yet achingly beautiful. 

Favourite thing to do there: One of my favourite experiences and a classic Kimberley photo opportunity is of an ancient Boab Tree known as "The Old Man of the Forest" at sunset with the El Questro Ranges as the backdrop. Don't miss majestic Geike Gorge or stunning Cable Beach.

Favourite Holiday Destination: Western Australia. I'm immensely proud of my home state, Western Australia, and love showing guests the incredible diversity of this region. Don't miss the mystical Pinnacles, indulging in Margaret River food and wine and 'surfing' famous Wave Rock.

Favourite thing to do there: With more than 12,000 species, the wildflower season in WA is one of the most stunning times to visit. Witnessing the blooming fields of vibrant colour s is a truly stunning sight of which WA is famous for.

Favourite Holiday Destination: South Australia. It's a food lover's paradise. It's impossible not to indulge in its delicious produce or linger in its spectacular wine regions, plus it's an easy reach from Adelaide. 

Favourite thing to do there: The villages surrounding Adelaide are always an experience to remember, especially Hahndorf. It's the area's oldest German settlement and remains a charming and fun place to explore. Cool down with a refreshing German beer or you can even a try a bratwurst. Sit back and relax on a guided holiday of this fantastic region and I'll ensure everything is taken care of.

Favourite Holiday Destination: Kakadu, NT. Kakadu and the Top End should be on everyone's bucket list. Gorge after gorgeous gorge, stunning waterfalls and billabongs teeming with wildlife - it feels like you're in a nature documentary!   

Favourite thing to do there: Kakadu is an amazingly diverse landscape full of mangrove fringed coasts, flood plains, woodlands and lush wetlands. You also must see the ancient Aboriginal rock art of Nourlangie, thought to be over 10,000 years old.
