28 Day Long Stay Vacation - Australia Winter Escape - Sydney & Southern Queensland
4 Weeks, 2 Cities in New South Wales and Queensland
Come and say g’day! Chase the sun Downunder this winter. We love Canada, but do we really love the long winters? Sometimes we all need a reprieve from the cold winter and put a bit of spring back in our step after a few months the chill. Australia is a great getaway in winter as the seasons are the opposite to Canada and it is summer downunder!
This extended stay package is an excellent month away with a little time in Sydney first to see the iconic Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Blue Mountains National Park. Second stop for an extended stay is southeast Queensland, where the weather is beautiful one day and perfect the next! The endless miles of stunning golden sand will be a great destination for your early morning walks which will help justify your afternoon cocktail and BBQ dinner. You have two choices, either stay in the bustling Gold Coast Surfers Paradise, or for a quieter few weeks choose Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast.
The region has so many adventures you can add or extend your time in Australia to see the Gold Coast’s rainforest hinterland, the Shipwreck Coast, Brisbane, Lady Elliot Island to snorkel off the beach on the world’s largest living organism or perhaps pristine K’Gari (Fraser Island). Your options are endless. Why do another long hard winter?
