There’s no better place to begin your holiday than the incredible Great Barrier Reef. Flying to the  coastal city of Cairns, the gateway to this marine marvel, you’ll spend one night in a hotel here, giving you the chance to take a boat ride into the adjacent blue waters which are teeming with everything from turtles to stingrays. Cairns itself is also full of life, with plenty of seafront bars and restaurants to while away an hour or two.

You’ll then transfer to the Green Island Resort on the fringe of the Great Barrier Reef. Set on a tiny island, this remarkable eco-friendly accommodation has plenty to keep you entertained during a magical two-night stay. Take a glass-bottom ride or snorkel amongst the vivid coral reefs, enjoy a soothing massage with local products or visit Marineland Melanesia, a family-run complex that is part-museum and part-aquarium. It’s even home to Australia’s largest crocodile in captivity, the enormous Cassius.

Transferring back to Cairns, you’ll then embark the luxurious Silver Shadow for your voyage to Melbourne. Packed with things to do and boasting lavish surroundings, Silver Shadow provides a sailing to remember as you feast on an array of fine-dining and take in a wide spectrum of entertainment at the Show Lounge.

You’ll first stop at Airlie Beach, gateway to the Whitsunday Islands and where you’ll find plenty of boutiques, cafes and markets to explore. At Brisbane, state capital of Queensland, you could stroll along the Brisbane River where you’ll find some of its major attractions, from the Brisbane Wheel to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

You’ll then sail to the city Newcastle at the mouth of the Hunter River before crossing the Tasman Sea to Hobart where you’ll enjoy an overnight stay. Tasmania’s capital is awash with Victorian and Georgian architecture, while nearby Mount Wellington is a popular place to visit for the views. Head to Salamanca Place for its markets and diverse food scene.  A little further along the coast lies Port Arthur, your next destination and best known for its former convict settlement, now a fascinating open-air museum. You’ll then head back across the Tasman Sea, stopping at Philip Island, a wonderful place to catch an abundance of marine life, including penguins, whales and dolphins

Before reaching Melbourne, where you’ll disembark, you’ll also visit Geelong. This fast-growing city is most famous for its Eastern Beach, an Art Deco throwback that transports you to the 1930s. Take an evening stroll along the atmospheric Baywalk to admire the wooden sculptures dotted along the path.

While here you’ll be able to choose from a wealth of exciting activities such as a city highlights tour, a hike to nearby Mount Wellington or a visit to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.

Just south of Hobart on the tip of a peninsula jutting out into the Tasman Sea lies the tiny town of Port Arthur.
