From Sydney a 3-hour flight will bring you to Cairns, a gateway city to one of the world’s true natural wonders: the Great Barrier Reef. While the marine life of the world’s largest living organism draw snorkelers and divers, the reef also has some 900 islands along its 1,400-mile length. Atop one of these islands at the very northern end of the reef is a wonder of hospitality, the Lizard Island resort, where luxury equals exclusivity with only 40 rooms nestled between the island’s 24 white sand beaches. Warren’s itinerary provides three days there—sufficient time to take advantage of some of the resort’s many activities from self-guided nature walks to diving, including night dives, and also relax by the sea or pool.
A full itinerary for Warren’s trip as well as other trips to Australia can be found at AFAR Journeys.
