Detailed Description

Luxury and intimacy go hand-in-hand during your 12-day romantic couple’s tour of Australia. Whether newlyweds or renewing vows, celebrating an anniversary or just in the mood to enjoy each other’s company, you will discover the pleasures of white sand beaches and harbor cruises, nature walks and fine dining set in the diverse scenery of tropical Queensland, the Red Desert, and coastline of New South Wales. Your journey will begin with your arrival in Cairns, and then you will continue by scenic flight off of Australia’s northeastern coast to Lizard Island. A representative from the resort will meet you at the airstrip and help you to settle into your luxurious accommodations on the secluded island, located inside a spectacular national park.

The remainder of the day will allow you both to explore the resort and take in your beautiful surroundings. Wake the next morning to board a catamaran to sail around the collection of islands. In the evening, you can dine underneath the stars at a private table situated on the shoreline for a memorable, romantic, candlelit meal. The next day, you will board a yacht to travel along the Great Barrier Reef to visit a number of dive sites located on both the Inner and Outer Reef. Snorkel or scuba dive to explore the delicate ecosystem beneath the sea, and then relax with a day at your leisure the next day to take advantage of the island excursions and activities at your preferred pace. Sunbathe on the beach or partake in a couple’s massage with masseurs specializing in an Aboriginal technique known as Kodo.

The next day, you will travel back to Cairns and then continue onward to the Red Center at Ayers Rock. A private transfer will meet you at the airstrip and escort you to a remarkable resort in view of the inspiring monolith of Uluru. Bask in the pristine night sky with a private dinner for two on a secluded dune, and then follow your guide through history and scenery the next day with a visit to The Olgas and a sunset base walk around Uluru. Continue to explore the Red Desert and Kata-Tjuta National Park at your leisure, perhaps with a camel ride across the sand or a visit to the Mutitjulu Waterhole.

You could also linger by the pool to enjoy the resort’s amenities as the next day, you will fly from Ayers Rock to Sydney. Your private transfer will greet you at baggage claim and escort you to the heart of the city to your attractive hotel with a view of the Opera House. The remainder of the day is yours to discover the city as you desire. The next morning, you will have a morning tour of Sydney followed by a private visit to the Sydney Opera House to learn about the history and artistic aesthetic of the iconic structure.

Wander along the streets and beaches for the remaining day to embrace the culture of the seaside city. First, you will sail the harbor on a private tour for a day of views around the city, followed by an exhilarating Bridge Climb along the Harbor Bridge. Wake the next morning for a private tour of Blue Mountains National Park to traverse the trails and see the stunning landscape carved from sandstone and draped with eucalyptus forests. To conclude, your private transfer will meet you at your hotel to bring you to the airport for your flight home.
