Detailed Description

It is always a challenge to choose a vacation destination as nearly everything is possible. You can opt for culture, city, cuisine, the island getaway or the iconic country that seems so far away from everything else, but this handcrafted luxury tour is a combination of two very different vacations to offer it all.  After days packed with adventures around Australia’s iconic sights, you will then experience the tranquility of doing nothing on a tropical Pacific island. A mesmerizing menu of experiences fills the first part of the tour, from famous landscapes like Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef to the unmissable cities and authentic encounters with Aboriginal culture. You can do and see a lot as you hop between the four destinations on this giant island of the Pacific. When you are done exploring, fly across the ocean blue to a tiny volcanic island, where the best thing to do is lie back and soak up the serenity.

Touch down first in Sydney, climbing the Harbour Bridge an excellent introduction to the cityscape. Check out Sydney Opera House, take a cruise on the Parramatta River, spend a day amongst the strange scenery of the Blue Mountains, and then fly north to Cairns. This is your gateway to the Great Barrier Reef as you combine snorkeling and a helicopter flight to experience the natural wonder from complementary angles. Spend a day following ancestral Aboriginal practices, and then fly to the sacred rock of Uluru, a monolith as spiritual as it is beautiful. Nearby, the pinnacles of Kata Tjuta reveal that Uluru is not just one giant red rock in the desert. A couple of nights in Melbourne will bring your Australian leg to a close, as wild koalas and kangaroos are amongst those that enchant in Australia’s south.

It will then be a full day of travel to Tahiti with a change of planes in Auckland before soaring out into the heart of the Pacific Ocean. The next morning, a short flight will bring you to the even more remote island of Bora Bora.  Bora Bora is an island of pleasure, where what could be done today can be put off until tomorrow. Tropical colors swirl with the turquoises and sapphires and the shimmering whiteness of the sand. Your suite stands over a lagoon, accessed only by a bamboo walkway and for the best part of a week, you can indulge in simple pleasures as you soak up the equanimity and enchantment of one of the world’s great island escapes. Various activities are included in your package, but you do not have to do anything.  When you can forget about time, these days will provide a balance to the exploration that has gone before.  Looking for the best Bora Bora travel ideas?
