Ever dreamt of getting away from it all, just the two of you? Imagine taking off in a seaplane, flying low over one of the world’s most spectacular harbors, a mosaic of colorful sailboats. Enjoying the romantic intimacy of a deserted beach, a picnic basket full of gourmet foods and an Australian Chardonnay, the only reminders of the world left behind. It’s time to stop dreaming, and just treating yourselves to the ultimate vacation!
Leaving the US, fly to the continent 'Downunder' of cosmopolitan charm and outback wilderness. Sydney’s spectacular harbor is the center of the city, with the landmark Opera House reflecting the maritime tradition in its sail shaped domes. Your accommodations are at a luxurious hotel in the city center of Sydney. From here you can explore this charming city – with a proud heritage, yet modern and dynamic, absorbing influences from all over the world. Experience Sydney’s wide range of cultural events, international dining and of course the vibrant nightlife. Fly over the speckled waterways in a seaplane to a secluded spot for a picnic lunch, and take the time to let it all sink in while the waves of the Pacific Ocean roll in around you.
While Sydney is exciting, the natural beauty of the Australian countryside is something to be experienced! Fly to Cairns in north Queensland, where your luxurious resort faces the ocean on one side and is surrounded by a lush rainforest on the other, secluding you from the rest of the world. Just beyond the horizon, accessed by a boat excursion on a high-speed catamaran, lies the legendary Great Barrier Reef. Play in one of the wonders of the world as you swim, snorkel or dive together in this under water symphony of teeming fish and brilliant, colorful coral.
You’ll return home from your Australian getaway with a lifetime of wonderful memories!

Local guides will explain the religious and cultural significance of the Rock to the Aboriginals [The visit to Ayers Rock would be between your stays in Sydney and Cairns]
