ITINERARY INSPIRATION

CLASSIC EAST COAST AUSTRALIA

One of the advantages of being on the other side of the world is that when it’s grey and grisly in England, Australia is beaming with summer sunshine. Combine that with the lively attractions of the East Coast and you have the perfect setting for a family adventure.

DAY 1-5

SYDNEY

Fly to Sydney, regarded as one of Australasia’s premier destinations. Small wonder; this scintillating city offers you wide-ranging cultural opportunities, sizzling restaurants and bars, outstanding architecture and an endless supply of experiences. Like strolling past the Opera House and around Circular Bay, taking photographs at every other step. You can take a half day introductory city tour, then catch a ferry to Manly and Darling Harbour – the trip takes you beneath Sydney Harbour Bridge – or wend your way to world-renowned Bondi Beach for swimming and surfing lessons.

LAMINGTON NATIONAL PARK

‘I’m a Celebrity’ was actually filmed here, in the Southern Queensland rainforest. But instead of celebrities, you’ll meet wildlife including pademelons, frogs, possums and a vivid array of birds. Lamington is a World Heritage National Park and the perfect venue for nature walks, scenic lookouts, 4×4 trips, treetop walks above the rainforest and night expeditions to find glow worms and nocturnal creatures.

NOOSA
DAY 11-12

NOOSA

Noosa’s beach is flawless. Squeaky, fine white sand stretching for miles (actually over 30 miles) along the edge of the warm Pacific Ocean. The town isn’t bad either, and you’ll be staying just a couple of minutes from Hastings Street with its great shops, specialist surfing outlets, relaxed cafés, busy bars and fine restaurants. Beyond both beach and town are the interesting bush walk trails of nearby Noosa National Park, with Australia Zoo a short drive away.

Stay: Two nights in a two-bedroom apartment at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas in a Two bedroom apartment- bed & breakfast

At over 120km, this is the world’s largest sand island with a landscape dominated by white beaches, coloured sandstone cliffs, freshwater pools and ancient rainforest. Around 98% of the island is protected within the Great Sandy National Park.

During your stay you’ll enjoy a 4WD ranger-guided tour, a chance to learn more about the island’s natural and cultural history as well as go swimming in the crystal clear waters of Lake McKenzie. You’ll drive along the beautiful Seventy-Five Mile Beach, visit the wreck of Maheno and be dazzled by the coloured sands of the Pinnacles.
