Situated in beautiful country Victoria, flanked by mountains and the magnificent Gippsland lakes, Curtis Australia has a heritage of five generations of craftsmanship and jewellery.
Bespoke jewellery and watchmakers Curtis Australia are now offering unprecedented access to their Gippsland studio to a select few special clients.
Experience how liquid gold is transformed into gorgeous pieces as you are guided around by founder and master jeweller Glenn Curtis. Walk through the creation process from hand drawings to final hand polish. Return home with a limited release gift only available through these tours.
Access is via Bairnsdale airport which has a 1400m runway where you will be collected and chauffeur driven in a beautifully restored classic car to the Curtis studio 15 minutes away.
These intimate group tours include a gourmet lunch as well as the opportunity to explore this amazing region.
Choose from two unique tour options - both taking no longer than a round of golf. Each option includes the exclusive Curtis Australia studio tour, and then you have the choice of either:
A) Travelling leisurely along the river to picturesque Paynesville at the heart of the Gippsland Lakes.
