Islands, Beaches & Reefs

Unbelievable beaches are not just for calendars and screen savers. Let Down Under Endeavours take you to the far flung seascapes of your dreams on one of our exotic island vacations. Dive every day in the vibrant depths of the Great Barrier Reef.  Snorkel through the impossible blue waters of Fiji’s sea caves. Dip your head under the cascade of a lonely waterfall. Feel the world slide away as you’re left (for a day) on your own private island.  Let the waves lull you to sleep in your over water bungalow in Bora Bora.  Enjoy the largest sand island in the world in Australia or travel to Stewart Island in New Zealand for some unique diving experiences.  Take in some golf or cuddle a koala before your trip to Whitehaven Beach while staying on Hamilton Island.   Or for something completely different try the Tuamotu Islands or Marquesas in French Polynesia or the vary luxurious Brando resort.

Down Under Endeavours handcrafts luxury vacations designed around your wants, needs, timeframe and budget. To get a taste of what’s possible, check out these sample itineraries. Have a look, see what catches your eye, then chat to the Down Under team to custom-create one of our exotic island vacations. Occasionally, we offer traditional “package” vacations focused on a special event. But those are the exception, not the rule. The itinerary of your trip of your lifetime will be unique to you.
