Luxury Holidays in Eastern Australia


Following on from my Australia blog series, here are some luxury holidays you can take in Eastern Australia. (I promise there are some Christmas posts coming!)

 Australia is the land of wilderness and sophisticated cities. Surrounded by the Indian and Pacific Oceans, it has long been a destination for many adventurous travellers around the world. The largest country in Oceania, the tropical weather it has in certain areas is one of the reasons millions of tourists and avid explorers visit the country every year.

Whether you are looking for a city break, a beach holiday or a hiking trip, Australia has it all. Avoid tourists by going in the months from June to August, when temperatures are mild and skies sunny. If you are looking for hotter days, travel there from December to February and enjoy the outdoor life the country has to offer.

THE GOLD COAST


The Gold Coast in Queensland is the sixth largest city in the country and the second largest in the state. It has become a leading tourist destination since the mid 90s and and its subtropical climate and beautiful beaches attract thousands of surfers every year. It’s known in the country as Australia’s Hollywood and the nightlife is exquisite. With elite holiday homes for rent provided for your gold coast holidays, you are sure to have the time of your life in this beautiful region.

SYDNEY


Sydney is the capital of New South Wales and one of the country’s largest cities. Sydney is renowned for its Opera House and its beautiful harbour bridge. With excellent waves, Bondi Beach will most likely leave you breathless and might make you want to give surfing a try. It’s a good beach for beginners. Experience the city’s Asian food offering and explore its relaxing and free outdoor markets.

BLUE MOUNTAINS


This rugged terrain west of Sydney hosts rainforests and tall mountain peaks. This World Heritage region is worth a visit due to its wild nature and hundreds of species that inhabit the area. A popular destination for climbers and hikers, mountain bikers also flock to the region to admire the stunning views all around. Visit the Katoomba Scenic Railway for spectacular sightseeing atop the steepest funicular railway in the world.

WHITSUNDAY ISLANDS


Seventy four islands, mostly inhabited, comprise the Whitsunday Island region. Rainforest and white sand beaches are commonplace in the islands that are situated off Australia’s eastern coast. With the Great Barrier Reef metres away, the spectacular landscape will awe you and the region’s beautiful sunset will take your breath away. Visit the Clipper Race Carnival and enjoy yacht-watching and seafood tasting.

DAINTREE FOREST


In the north east coast of Queensland, you will find the Unesco World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest, the largest continuous tropical rainforest in Australia. The Kuku Yalanji people live there, next to its now protected national park, and the relaxed villages that sit in this vast rainforest are gems to be marveled at. Visit the Daintree Discovery Centre for a stroll along the attraction’s aerial walkway. Do also travel to Myall Beach for some quality quiet time along the beautiful coast.
