Australia is home to one of the greatest reef dive sites in the world – The iconic Great Barrier Reef. To explore it, head to tropical Cairns for day trips and diving courses that showcase this pristine area. Or, for some serious sun, head to Airlie Beach, the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands where we can arrange memorable overnight sailing adventures, luxe island resort stays + more. For some more sun + surf, head to the East Coast hotspots of laid-back Byron Bay, Noosa and Surfers Paradise.
For the ultimate Aussie city break we’re recommending stylish Sydney. This city chic gem offers some of the hottest weekend getaways – think 1950’s Harpoon Harrys Hotel or the trending Primus Hotel for a luxe place to rest. During the day, visit the perfectly tanned locals and stunning coastline at the iconic Bondi Beach, where we rate the QT Hotel for people watching. Once you’ve soaked in the sun, flit over to arty Melbourne to check out plush pads like St Kilda’s The Royce or Hotel Cosmopolitan to sip on some perfectly roasted lattes. Once you’ve had your fill of the bright lights, hit the open road. With car hire available from all major locations, you could be exploring the Great Ocean Road or the rolling vineyards in South and Western Australia in no time.
For extreme landscapes, a Darwin and Kimberly 4×4 safari can’t be missed. For the ultimate Australian Outback experience, indulge in dinner under the stars at the Red Centre’s crowning jewel; Uluru. Or, for something a little greener, head to Tasmania’s famed East Coast where you’re greeted with a serious organic food scene and coastal highways that scream road trip.
