Days 1-2

Fly from the UK to Brisbane.

Days 3-4

Brisbane

Explore the vibrant city of Brisbane, a thriving and cosmopolitan metropolis known for its subtropical climate. Wander through world-class galleries, sip on luscious cocktails in the bars and enjoy al-fresco meals in the sunshine by the lazy Brisbane River. While you’re here, you can get up close to Australia’s most popular native animals at the world’s largest koala park, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where koala cuddling and kangaroo feeding are the top activities.

Lamington National Park

Lamington National Park is one of the most biodiverse places in the world. Stretching across nearly 50,000 acres, here you can discover over 160 bird species, a plethora of forest types – from sub-tropical to dry eucalyptus – and abundant waterfalls. Beauty abounds here. Part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, this UNESCO-listed gem is great for getting in touch with nature, best experienced via the 99+ miles of hiking trails, or from your balcony overlooking rainforest and mountains.

Accommodation at 4* O'Reillys Rainforest Retreat

Days 7-8

Gold Coast

Swimsuits at the ready – the Gold Coast is all about that glistening silica and turquoise water. You’ll be staying in Broadbeach, a stone’s throw from the iconic Surfers Paradise and the heritage-listed Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. When you’re not riding a wave or lazing on the sand, perhaps stock up your suitcase at the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, explore the Broadbeach Art and Craft Market, or set up a picnic and barbecue with your friends and family at the riverside Cascade Gardens.

After your sun soaked time at the Goldie, drive back up to Brisbane airport where you'll fly up to the beautiful Airlie Beach. When there, you will take to the skies above the Great Barrier Reef and see the Whitsunday Islands by seaplane. You’ll fly over the beautiful Whitehaven Beach, Hardy Lagoon and the iconic Heart Reef. Back at sea level, head for the Airlie Beach Lagoon – a man-made swimming area that’s perfect for families.

Once reserved for romantic honeymooners and laid-back yacht enthusiasts, Hamilton now offers quad biking, go-karting, fishing and world-class golfing, along with more than 12 miles of walking trails. But perhaps best of all is the top-shelf snorkelling in its pristine waters. While you’re here, board your boat for a scenic cruise to Whitehaven Beach, a mesmerising swirl of white sand and bright azure seas, for show-stopping views and a spot of sunbathing.

Take a stroll along the dappled streets, browse the boutique shops and admire the historical architecture, soaking in the relaxed, small-town atmosphere.
