OVERNIGHT: Mercure Brisbane King George Square
If you’ve never been to the magical Whitsundays, Hamilton Island offers a snapshot of everything the picture-perfect paradise has on offer, all in a compact 5 square kilometres of pristine white sands, sparkling waters and untouched wilderness. Make your own way to the island (flights can be arranged on request) and get ready for an experiential shift as you explore this unique and unforgettable island.
OVERNIGHT: 3 nights Hamilton Island Reef Hotel
Leave the world behind as you dive into the astonishingly clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef. This whole-day adventure begins when you depart Hamilton Island on a sleek high-speed vessel, taking you to the outer Great Barrier Reef and cruising past spectacular islands. When you reach the reef pontoon the underwater world awaits, with semi-submarine, an underwater viewing chamber, and a sun deck just a few of the options to choose from. With snorkelling gear on board, expect to work up an appetite for the all-you-can eat buffet lunch. (L)
Spend the day barefoot on the beach, get pampered by the pool, hike into the surrounding wilderness, or dive into a day of fun — whatever your choice, today is yours to discover a magnificent island you’d be happy to be cast away on.
Your tropical adventure concludes.
The Blue Mountains track is currently closed due to a landslide, resulting in a diversion to Sydney and regrettably no Blue Mountains excursion until March 2 for east-bound Indian Pacific guests.
