Overview

A perfect Australia honeymoon, this three-centre city and beach trip would also suit any first-time visitors to Australia. With a paradise stay in the heart of the Whitsundays on Hamilton Island at the centre of your trip, we’ve also included city breaks in two of Australia’s most vibrant cities – Sydney and Melbourne.

Beginning with four days in Sydney, your holiday will get off to a flying start in one of the world’s most exciting and vibrant cities. Take a seaplane over the harbour, relax on Bondi Beach and enjoy a day out wine tasting in Hunter Valley to make the most of your time here before heading to your next stop, Hamilton Island.

Located in the heart of the Whitsundays, Hamilton Island makes the perfect base to explore the Great Barrier Reef. From here you can enjoy snorkelling, visit the stunning white sands of Whitehaven Beach, visit a wildlife park or relax on the island and soak up some rays.

Finally head to Melbourne; home to great café culture, cool restaurants and trendy bars. Visit St Kilda beach for the day and don’t miss a visit to one of the many patisseries on Acland Street; or perhaps hire a car and head south to the Mornington Peninsula for countryside, vineyards and incredible views.
