Ultimate Retreats: Great Barrier Reef, Sydney & Kangaroo Island

Duration
12 Days
Prices From:
US$ 6,193

DELUXE | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Head on a relaxing Aussie adventure that combines the best of natural encounters and luxury accommodations. Visiting Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, and Kangaroo Island, you’ll stay in pampering deluxe hotels and lodges and experience a blend of Australia’s natural and cultural highlights.


This 12-day Australia vacation combines the excitement of Sydney with two of Australia’s most spectacular islands, Hamilton Island and Kangaroo Island, offering the perfect mix of tranquility, culture, and nature. It features deluxe accommodations and private tours.

Your trip to Australia begins on Hamilton Island, your idyllic oasis in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef. Stay at secluded qualia, one of the most celebrated resorts in Australia, where you’ll have the best of the island’s water sports, reef tours, and fishing at your disposal. You’ll have three full days at leisure to follow your fancy. Consider a scenic helicopter flight or enjoy a rejuvenating warm stone treatment or customized aromatherapy massage at qualia spa.

From Hamilton Island, connect south to Sydney, which greets you with its iconic Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Enjoy the pampering comforts of the Park Hyatt Hotel and see popular favourites and lesser-known highlights on a Luxury Diamond City Tour, which takes you from the historical The Rocks neighbourhood to the picturesque Northern Suburbs. Another day, enjoy a luxury sailing cruise along the harbour to see the landmarks from the water and enjoy a lunch and drink as you sail. Use your full day at leisure to tour the Sydney Opera House, see critters at the Taronga Zoo, or escape the city like a local with a day trip to Blue Mountains National Park or the Hunter Valley wine region.

The final stop of your Australian ultimate retreat is Kangaroo Island, a biodiverse wonderland off the shore of South Australia, where Sea Dragon Lodge awaits you. Relax in one of three private suites along the island’s northeastern shoreline and spend two full days at leisure on the island. Head to natural landmarks such as the Remarkable Rocks and Admiral’s Arch and spot the abundant wildlife on the island, including koalas, sea lions, echidnas, and, yes, kangaroos. Each evening, retire to the lodge for fine home cooking, which includes a fresh bounty of local seafood.

At the end of your Australia tour, connect to the airport for onward travels.
