Itinerary

Days 1-2
Fly from UK to
Days 3-4
Alice Springs

It’s also set among some impressive Outback scenery: think red sands, wind-smoothed sandstone rocks and plenty of breath-taking views. In town, you can choose to browse the markets – a great place to pick up traditional Indigenous dot paintings – or take a look around the Alice Springs Desert Park.

4.5* Mercure Alice Springs

Days 5-7
Uluru

Take in its sheer size by walking around its base, or simply admire it from afar. Later, you’ll enjoy canapés and sip sparkling wine as you observe the rock turn various shades of purple, pink and orange as the sun sets then, as dark descends, watch over 50,000 lights come to life as you enjoy a three-course dinner overlooking the Field of Light art installation.

4.5* Desert Gardens Hotel

Night at the Field of Light

Days 8-10
Port Douglas

Hop on board a catamaran and set sail for the outer corals, dive down beneath the waves and explore this colourful world, either by diving or snorkelling or, if you prefer to stay dry, by semi-submersible. Moored at Agincourt Reef, you’ll also have the chance to watch the fish, which include butterfly fish, parrot fish and angel fish, from a unique underwater viewing platform and underwater observatory.

4.5* Mantra Aqueous on Port

Quicksilver Outer Barrier Reef Cruise

Days 11-12
Daintree Rainforest

Look for birds, possums, lizards and bats on a night walk among the trees, some of which are thought to be around 120 million years old. Spend some time exploring – perhaps on foot on one of the many boardwalks, by boat or by kayak, or even on a zip lining adventure.

4* Daintree Ecolodge

Days 13-14
Depart Daintree Rainforest and return to the UK
