Welcome to the beautiful city of Sydney, where the sun seems to shine eternally and the blue waters of the iconic harbour glitter along the waterfront. Take a walk along the cobbled laneways of The Rocks and explore the cool markets and cosy pubs. Peek inside the famed Sydney Opera House with its towering white sails and soak up the sweeping harbour views over a sumptuous tasting platter. Later, soak up the sights of Sydney by night on your harbour dinner cruise.

Drive on to the cool air and wild forests of the Hinterland. This elevated area is cooler than the rest of the sizzling Sunshine Coast and offers pretty villages and historic buildings among the dense rainforests and plunging waterfalls. Check out the local arts and crafts as you browse the galleries, boutiques and craft markets. Explore the area by mountain bike or take a hike through the rainforest, or perhaps treat yourself to a picnic. For something a bit different, take a Thai cooking class at your Spicers hotel or sit back and relax in the rainforest spa.

A bit swanky in style, Noosa has lovely beaches to chill out on, right by the rainforest. For something more active head to Noosa national park for coastal walks – just follow the boardwalk from town. If you’re lucky you might even spot a dolphin or two. While you’re here you’ll cross over to World Heritage Listed Fraser Island, covered in giant sand dunes and freshwater streams, with lakes of vivid blue and green as well as prolific birdlife. Keep your eyes peeled for dingoes whales, sharks and dugongs.
