Days 3-5


Your first stop is the cosmopolitan city of Brisbane – this modern city boasts a vibrant city centre, sub-tropical climate and unsurpassed natural beauty. Your hotel is centrally located on George Street, so once you’ve settled in you can step outside and explore all this fabulous city has to offer. Cruise along the Brisbane River onboard a paddle steamer, take a bike ride through the City Botanic Gardens or stroll around Brisbane’s art galleries. As night falls, Brisbane offers a superb selection of restaurants – tuck into fine Queensland cuisine while overlooking the twinkling lights of Story Bridge. Your Journey also includes a Tangalooma Wild Dolphin Adventure Tour on nearby Moreton Island – a tropical island escape just 75 minutes from the city. Moreton Island boasts long stretches of untouched beach, pristine waters and untouched national parks. You’ll enjoy a 4x4 tour of the island before feeling the thrill of sand tobogganing down the island’s huge sand dunes (optional). At dusk the ultimate experience awaits, when you’ll be able to hand-feed wild dolphins straight from the beach.
