Your route



Days 1-2

Fly from UK to Brisbane

Days 3-4


Arrive in Brisbane, Queensland’s vibrant capital, set along the sunny banks of the Brisbane River. Here, take the time to explore the chic cafes and quirky bars, browse the galleries and museums or perhaps try the hike up Mount Coot-tha, a 287m mound home to the Botanical Gardens and the Planetarium as well as 360° views of the city. While you’re in town, pay a visit to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for a chance to get up close to koalas and kangaroos.

Days 5-7


Drive on to Noosa, a fashionable and glamorous town with some lovely sandy beaches and plenty of coffee shops to while away an afternoon or two. There are some excellent walks on offer in Noosa National Park, and it’s worth exploring the rainforest at nearby Tewantin National Park too, but really the main event for your Noosa stay will be your trip to Fraser Island, an island made of sand. Here you can explore the beautiful rock formations, dunes and lakes, including the impressively green Lake Wabby.

Experience this stunning location on a glass bottom boat tour or snorkel the reef where you will come face to face with a large variety of coral, brilliantly coloured fish, and perhaps turtles, dolphins and manta rays. In the evening, explore the quintessential Aussie town of Hervey Bay and choose to dine at one the restaurants located along the harbour.

Here, the soft white sands and bright blue seas will invite you to spend lazy days on the beach, or perhaps to grab your snorkel and explore the underwater world.
