Detailed Description

In Australia, you do not need to look for a quiet, private place. There is space all around, and the escapism is endless, even if no two landscapes are the same. Walking hand in hand beneath the outback stars is very different from a lobster barbecue on a tropical beach. There is the city, the bush, and the outback, each bringing you new spaces that are made just for two. When you do encounter other life, it is usually of the marsupial kind such as kangaroos and koalas. In some countries, you will find thousands of visitors crowding around a handful of attractions. In Australia, however, you will find thousands of private places, all with the same iconic allure.

This two-week romantic vacation is tailored to include Australia’s most beautiful places of escapism, mixing the city with the tropics and evocative red center. Three days in Sydney eases you into the country, with a vintage 1964 Holden as your vessel for a day tour in the city. On day three you cruise along the Parramatta before a night at the Sydney Opera House, where you will watch a performance rather than merely touring the famous building. Next, fly directly to Uluru where you will spend two nights at a desert retreat, perched on a red dune in the middle of nowhere. Sunrise and sunset tours show both Uluru and Kata Tjuta, along with other outback icons. Then, the nighttime sky provides a backdrop for dance and luxuriating that is thousands of miles from any town or city.

Swap the desert for the beach as you fly to Cairns then Lizard Island, which is a place of privacy and powdery sands in the Great Barrier Reef. You have three nights here. Snorkel, dive, barbecue, and find your special place on an island so vast and quiet that it seems completely private. Next, travel to the rainforest for an Australian bush experience in Mossman, complete with wildlife and mangroves. Spot kangaroos and koalas just outside the city before spending the next day in the Yarra Valley wine region. Here, both days are private tours that can be adjusted to your specific interests. Two weeks will rush by, but the diversity of the destinations means the memories will always live on. Make sure your perfect Australian vacation is an unforgettable one by seeing additional Australia travel ideas.
