From Uluru to the Great Barrier Reef, and cool wineries to hot beaches
Australia is divided into six states and two territories, each one offering a different experience for the traveller. There is the drama of the remote ‘Outback’, the colourful spectacle of the Great Barrier Reef and its coral islands, the excitement of the big, efficient cities, the sun, and surf at some of the best beaches in the world, and the tropical rainforests of Western Australia.
Kayak the secret waterways of Sydney’s north shore, making your way to golden Manly Beach for a picnic and swim. Fly to Lizard Island, where 24 white-sand beaches flank an unspoiled, forested interior. Catch a speedboat to famous scuba diving sites on the Great Barrier Reef. Behold the rising sun against Uluru and take a guided walk through the monumental rocks of nearby Kata Tjuta; the highest boulder is taller than Uluru itself. These are just a few of the exciting and unique experiences you can have while staying in any of our specially selected luxury hotels and resorts in Australia.
