This is your chance to experience the best of northeast Australia, where luxury hotel stays and a raft of activities will see you among some of the state's most iconic attractions. It all begins in Brisbane where you'll contrast the city's attractions with a naturalist-led cruise to Moreton Island's Tangalooma Resort to watch pods of dolphins playing in the sea at sunset. You'll then swap city for outback as you head into the Queensland Hinterland for a stay at a luxury hideaway and the chance to experience everything from nature walks to whiskey tasting, before ending amid the pristine sands and azure seas of idyllic Hamilton Island.

You’ll also be able to sample Australia’s foodie renaissance with local markets and a thriving restaurant scene showcasing the best in farm-to-table produce. Wrap up your Brisbane experience with a full-day cruise, joining an expert local guide for a trip out to Moreton Island and its Tangalooma Resort.
