Australia Private Tour

Local Time

Why You Should Go

Australia is known for its Great Barrier Reef, a tropical ocean paradise, however, due to overfishing in this area, we much prefer the Agincourt Ribbon Reefs,with around 21 individual dives sites here in total, such as the fish-abundant Castle Rock coral walls; Nursery Bommie with its array of pelagic fish such as barracudas, rays, sharks, and eels; Harry’s Bommie providing the chance to see both sharks and manta rays; and the Three Sisters on the reef’s inner edge.

In addition to the fascinating sights below the sea, are the lush, tropical rainforests above it, including the Daintree Rainforest, a fragile ecosystem considered to be over 150 million years old and home to the Kuku Yalanji people.  We also love Kangaroo Island, a wildlife sanctuary home to kangaroos, koalas, whales and dolphins!

Though we have been big fans of the Four Seasons Sydney in the past, we freely admit the contemporary designed 155-room, 5-Star Park Hyatt is our new favorite luxury property in Sydney. Set on the edge of Sydney Harbor, the hotel offers striking views facing the Sydney Opera House. Although most of the property’s rooms include private balconies with Opera views, please note that “standard” rooms do not offer this perk. Among the amenities here are 24-hour butler service, a very nice full-service spa, and a fitness center. We particularly like the hotel’s picturesque rooftop heated pool/sundeck – among the most amazing views in Sydney! A big perk for staying here: Robin’s lofty Hyatt membership status!

Set on its own 2500 acre island (accessible only by private plane), there are several nice accommodations to choose from here.  When speaking to Lizard Island representatives last week, they mentioned that they have a total of 24 private beaches! The many high-touch amenities and activities here include a freshwater pool, tennis courts, gym, spa, a saltwater restaurant (mixed Asian and Mediterranean), snorkeling, and scuba on the island!

We feel a stay at this luxury 21-suite, environmentally-friendly lodge is reason alone to visit Kangaroo Island! Located between two national parks, the entire lodge offers striking ocean views in a dramatic setting—this is truly a very special place. The lodge features a contemporary design with limestone floors, glass-walled baths, and outdoor terraces. Guided excursions to the nearby flora and fauna are included in your stay here. Recent clients were especially impressed with the lodge’s locally procured Australian cuisine/wine selection and the small, very nice spa. Another very special place among your fun, luxurious, Australian stopovers. Enjoy!
