From white beaches to the translucent waters of the Great Barrier Reef, prepare to be astonished by the east coast of Australia on this magical tour. You’ll spend the first few days in Sydney, where the relaxed charm of Bondi Beach will make you want to come back time and again. Fraser Island and Hamilton Island are next: snorkel and swim through the Reef, and don’t forget to take a snapshot of these blue waters. End your trip in Port Douglas—cocktail in hand—as you look at the Australian sunset one last time.

Travel Itinerary

Destination 1: Sydney

Start your tour in Sydney, Australia’s most renowned and breezy city. Get a blast of sun at Bondi Beach, where surfers and sunbathers define what it is to be a Sydneysider. After getting your sea fix, head to the Royal Botanic Garden for a stroll, and see the Palms and Begonias native only to Australia. In the evening, as the sun sets, have a glass of wine and a couple of oysters near The Rocks—you’ve earned it. 

Destination 2: Fraser Island

After a couple of days in bustling Sydney, head to Fraser Island, one of the gems of the east coast. Start your day with a drive along the wavey shore of the Seventy-Five Mile Beach, taking in the receded coastline as you go—make sure to grab a shell as a keepsake. Afterward, go for a dip and sunbathe at Lake MacKenzie—made purely out of rainwater—and see why the local indigenous population called this magic island K'gari', or “paradise.”

Destination 3: Hamilton Island

Pure white silica sand, translucent waters, and incredible marine life: your next stop is the quintessential Great Barrier Reef stopover. Go for a swim with your surfboard in hand at Whitehaven Beach, one of the most remote beaches in the world. A sight of the Reef is next: hop on a helicopter tour and get that postcard-perfect shot, or go for a snorkel tour if you’re feeling more marine.

Destination 4: Port Douglas

End your trip in Port Douglas, another east coast delight. The blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef are also available for your swimming pleasure here, but a hike or a zipline through the Daintree Rainforest—one of the world’s oldest—is a must for anyone looking for something more exploratory.  End your trip with a cocktail on the golden sands of the Four Mile Beach, with a sunset that won’t easily disappear from memory.
