Your Destinations

With a plethora of tropical islands, the Great Barrier Reef, and the iconic Sydney Opera House, it should come as no surprise that Australia is filled with unforgettable adventures. From the world’s largest surf festival in Queensland to unique Aborigine ceremonies across the country, this diverse nation is brimming with cultural experiences.

There is no other destination on the planet that combines beautiful beaches with hip cities, indigenous tales, expansive rainforests, kangaroos, and boomerang throwing. Australia is an ideal place to visit for anyone who is keen to get outside and explore its rugged landscape. Families with young children will never be short of things to do, while hiking enthusiasts may like to venture away from the tourist tracks for a challenging trek with jaw-dropping scenery.

Sydney

With a world-famous bay, dreamy beaches, designer shops, hipster cafes, gourmet restaurants, and notable party venues, Sydney is one of Australia's premier cities.

This daring city is particularly popular with surfers who flock to its incredible beaches. Sydney is also home to the magnificent Opera House where visitors can take a guided tour to learn more about the productions that are performed here.

Referred to as the "coathanger", the Sydney Bay Bridge is a must-see landmark that is best explored by bike.

On the third day of your getaway, you will take a transfer to the airport where you will board a flight to Cairns.

Hamilton Island

Located in the territory of Queensland, amongst the idyllic Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island is covered in luscious bushland and boasts the most spectacular and paradisiacal beaches, all whilst being just a stone's throw from the Great Barrier Reef. Discover the coasts fringed with coral reefs, have sightings of koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and kookaburras, and climb up the peaks of the island to marvel over sensational views of the islands!

Cairns

Along with its UNESCO World Heritage rainforest, visitors flock to the city of Cairns each year to admire the remarkable Great Barrier Reef. Take a trip to the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Kuranda Scenic Railway, and Kuranda Village and awaken your taste buds with tropical fruit and fresh seafood.

At Tjapukai Tree Culture Park you will learn about the Aborigine people, one of the oldest cultures in the world that have lasted for more than 40,000 years.

Jump on a ferry ride to the picturesque Fitzroy Island in just 45 minutes. There, you can take part in a range of activities including rainforest trails, snorkelling at Welcome Bay, and kayaking in the Great Barrier Reef.

Brisbane

Brisbane is an energetic city with a vibrant nightlife, a reputable foodie scene, elegant parks, and historic architecture. Renting a bicycle is a great way to uncover this city and soak up its neighbourhood charm.

The Story Bridge is an iconic structure that connects the South of the city with the North. The bridge offers panoramic views of Brisbane, and on a clear day, it is possible to see the Glasshouse Mountains and the Gold Coast Hinterland. For an adrenaline-fuelled experience, it is possible for visitors to climb the bridge with a local tour company.

When you are ready to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, head for the Brisbane coast and its idyllic islands. Moreton Island is just a 70-minute ferry ride and is the third largest sand island in the world. It offers a large national park, wonderful snorkelling opportunities, a blue lagoon, and dolphin and whale watching experiences.
