Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to Perth.
Arrive in Perth, a laid-back city that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Wander the museums and galleries or take a walk around Kings Park, an enormous green space home to bushland, walking trails, historic memorials and native flora. While you’re in town, sail across to the beaches of delightful Rottnest Island, home to the adorable quokka, a unique marsupial known for its friendly disposition and cheeky grin.
5* Hyatt Regency Perth
Fly to Learmouth and spend three nights on board a boat in a cabin with private en-suite, exploring the corals and coves of the Ningaloo Reef. Experience some of the best snorkelling in the world, kayak the shallow reef lagoons and walk along sparkling white beaches looking out for dugongs and dolphins splashing in the waves. Try your hand at fishing and if visiting between June and October you may spot migrating humpback whales too.
Fly to Adelaide and discover this stylish city, filled with fabulous restaurants and bars. Adelaide’s friendly residents have a reputation for enjoying life, and that’s certainly evidenced in the city’s ‘Eat Streets’, entire avenues devoted to dining and jam-packed with cosy cafes, relaxed pubs and intimate eateries. Perhaps hop on the tram to the seaside suburb of Glenelg, or meet the kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and possums on Kangaroo Island, a wildlife haven with 891 species of plant and 46 endemic animals.
5* Mayfair Hotel
Drive to Cape Jervis and take the ferry to Kangaroo Island, where you’ll discover the kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and possums who live on this wild landmass, a wildlife haven with 891 species of plant and 46 endemic animals. It’s not just the animals though – don’t miss the bizarre rock formations of Flinders Chase National Park, where you can climb on and inside some of the boulders and pose for imaginative photographs.
5* Sea Dragon Lodge
Continue to Cairns for the night. Here you can take a walk along the sunny esplanade, take a dip in the lagoon, perfect for those hot summer evenings, or try out one of the many exciting restaurants and bars along the seafront. If you have time, perhaps pop in to Cairns’ Botanic Gardens, home to plenty of lush tropical plants, and filled with information about how indigenous species are used by the Aboriginal people.
4* Mantra Esplanade Cairns
Great Barrier Reef Cruise
Hop onboard a four night snorkelling trip cruising the islands and towns of the Great Barrier Reef.. Dive beneath the waves of the Great Barrier Reef and discover a world of giant clams, sea turtles, rays and fish among the colourful corals. You’ll have the chance to scuba dive and join a marine biologist for a glass-bottomed boat trip as well as discovering the giant clam gardens of Lizard Island and hiking to the top of Cook’s look viewpoint for impressive Great Barrier Reef vistas.
Spend your last two nights among the cafes, galleries and boutiques of laid-back Port Douglas, where you’ll find a glorious beach as well as some historical architecture and a delightful small-town atmosphere. Head down to the Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas to learn about the fascinating local flora and fauna, particularly the birds, which are free to wander through their specially recreated habitats in this open, interactive exhibition.
5* Peppers Beach Club & Spa
Return to Cairns and depart for the UK.
