We planned this Australia Beaches and Sydney Vacation for a couple celebrating their 10th anniversary. They were returning to Australia for the third time and wanted to do something different, so we sent them to some of the country’s best uncrowded beaches and planned unique experiences in Sydney.
They began their Australia Beaches and Sydney Vacation in Noosa, a fabulous resort town on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. They self-drove to a luxurious resort with prime beach access, and spent their first day relaxing on the beach and exploring the fine dining and shopping on offer. The next day, they took an overnight 4WD tour of the area’s spectacular, secluded beaches, with plenty of time to stay longer at their favorite stops.
After 3 nights in the Noosa area, they drove to Spicers Peak Lodge, a luxury lodge in the Scenic Rim that offers the ultimate outdoor escape. Here, they went hiking in the forests and mountainous landscapes of the property with expert guides and enjoyed delicious meals each night made with fresh ingredients from the farm. They also decided to drive out to some of the wonderful wineries located in the Scenic Rim.
Next on their Australia Beaches and Sydney Vacation, they drove to the sumptuous Halcyon House. They spent 3 nights at this beachside hotel on the east coast, exploring Cabarina Beach by bicycle and driving out to some of Australia’s best uncrowded beaches for world-class diving.
The last stop on their Australia Beaches and Sydney Vacation was Australia’s capital: cosmopolitan Sydney. Here, they stayed at QT Sydney, which offers quirky interiors and a perfect downtown location. Having been to Sydney before, they wanted plenty of leisure time to delve into city life. However, we also planned some unique experiences for them: a magnificent lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour and a small bar walking tour that gave them a taste of the city’s best small bars, plus a local take on Sydney history and culture.
At last, their Australia Beaches and Sydney Vacation came to an end. They took a private transfer to the airport to begin their trip home.
