Retreat to Australia’s tropical islands

When it’s time to get away from everything and exchange the quotidian for some quality time, Australia’s tropical islands fit the bill. These retreats by the Great Barrier Reef are a string of islands and coral atolls just off Australia’s shoreline. Yet they are a world away from the tourist trails and backpacker bars of the Gold Coast. These are quite simply paradise – whether you are celebrating a honeymoon or want to leave the world behind. Here, you can relax in total privacy in five-star resorts and enjoy activities like snorkelling, scuba diving, sunbathing or marine life viewing from a glass-bottomed boat.

Each island has different qualities, but all offer an excellent experience whether you choose to head to Lizard, Hamilton Orpheus or Heron. While here you might like to observe some turtle hatching, bird rookeries or spend time whale watching or dolphin spotting. There are boat cruises around the islands which make for a very pleasant day’s outing. There are forests to explore, some of Australia’s best beaches to enjoy and fine dining to indulge in.

This area exudes luxury, indulgence and maximum relaxation. That’s reason enough to head here.
