Blue Mountains

Soak up the scenic delights of the dramatic Blue Mountains, so-called due to the indigo-hued mist that emanates from the eucalyptus forests. Here, majestic rock formations such as the triple-peaked Three Sisters and the cliffs of Mount Solitary attract plenty of visitors, and one of the best ways to see them is on foot. Don’t leave the area before looking around the Jenolan Caves, a collection of ten enormous caverns filled with intriguing limestone formations.

Includes full board at the resort, including selected premium beverages during meals

Three Sisters - Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia
Days 8-10
Hunter Valley

Spend lazy days gazing out over golden vineyards and tasting top-quality wines in the Hunter Valley, an area of gently rolling hills, quaint towns and villages, and some fantastic locally-produced delicacies. Complement your wine-tasting with various cheeses, olives and artisan chocolates, or try a craft beer or two. But the true highlight of your stay in the Hunter Valley will be a peaceful hot air balloon ride over the vines, followed by a decadent champagne celebration.

At just 11 kilometres by two kilometres, Lord Howe is a small island, but big on natural wonders among its rare birdlife and tropical plant-filled forests. Boasting crystal clear waters and a stunning coral reef, Lord Howe Island is a great place to discover more than 500 fish species that inhabit the undersea world, whether that’s by glass bottomed boat, snorkel, diving or kayak.
