Sunny, sexy and sophisticated, Sydney is the shining star of the southern hemisphere. The white-sailed Sydney Opera House over the waters of Sydney Cove, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge are the pride and joy, but there's far more on offer. Discover the harbour, the city's historic enclaves, restaurants and cafes, beaches, museums and art galleries. For the ultimate Sydney experience, take in the views from the Four Seasons Sydney with its perfect location. One thing’s for certain - you’ll run out of time before you run out of things to see and do in Sydney. Fly to Cairns, the center of the tropical north and connect to a 1 hour charter from Cairns to Lizard Island.

Outstanding in every respect, the unique pleasures of Lizard Island have created an idyllic retreat second to none. Australia's northernmost resort, Lizard is located right on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, fringed with colorful coral reefs and 24 powdery white beaches. It is little wonder that this tranquil escape has won a host of prestigious national and international awards for excellence. Lizard truly is one of a kind.

Enjoy your final night at the superbly positioned, Shangri-La Cairns, within the cosmopolitan Pier shopping complex, overlooking the Marlin Marina and the Coral Sea; adjacent to Trinity Bay Esplanade.
