    "Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain." - Jack Kerouac

    DAY 1: SUNSHINE COAST

    Who doesn’t love a road trip? One of the many great things about the Sunshine Coast is its proximity to Brisbane. Fly in to Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast and pick up your mini-van or large SUV. Hit the road on your journey to the Sunshine Coast.

    After checking into your luxury coastal resort, the rest of the day is yours to enjoy at leisure. Refer to your Lonely Planet guide for things to do as a couple or group.

    DAY 2: SUNSHINE COAST

    Today is your first full day on the Sunshine Coast, spend it how you want! You can do this trip even if you’re not a golfer but if you are, head off for a round at Pelican Waters Golf Club. The club features an impressive driving range, practice putting and chipping greens, and a well-equipped golf shop.

    18 Holes of Golf (or 3-course Dinner):

    Experience the spectacular 18-hole, championship, Greg Norman-designed golf course at Pelican Waters which fittingly boasts one of the finest clubhouses and practice facilities in Australia. The first round is included. If you're not golf-mad you can swap the gold for a 3-course sumptuous dinner at a great restaurant.

    Eumundi Markets (self-guided):

    The largest on the Sunshine Coast and one of the largest in Queensland, the famous Eumundi Markets are a must-visit for anyone looking to snag a bargain or come away with a keepsake of your time spent on the Sunshine Coast. Popular but never crowded, the Eumundi markets are home to over 300 stalls displaying a multitude of arts, crafts and produce. You'll find clothes, pottery, paintings, bowls, hats, bush furniture and more. The markets operate twice a week - Wednesdays and Saturdays.

    DAY 3: NOOSA & FRASER ISLAND

    Fraser Island Day Tour:

    Take a journey of discovery today as you explore Fraser Island onboard a purpose built 4x4 'Warrior' vehicle. In the morning, head to beautiful Noosa where you’ll meet your guide and start your tour with a trip to Inskip Point. There you'll take a short ferry trip over to Fraser Island where you’ll be thrilled with a drive along the magnificent "beach highway" before travelling into the centre of the island to experience one of the clearest lakes you'll ever see, Lake McKenzie.

    Don't forget your swimmers and towel to enjoy a dip in these stunning blue waters. After lunch, be amazed by the sights and smells of the ancient rainforest with a wander through Central Station to Pile Valley before making our way back towards the mainland.

    After your tour, spend some time exploring Noosa. Home to superb day spas, world-class golf courses, stylish shopping and delicious cuisine, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

    DAY 4: SUNSHINE COAST

    Today is yours to enjoy at leisure. Relax seaside and soak up the sun, play some more golf with your partner or friends, or head inland on a tour of the Sunshine Coast’s hinterland.

    Rainforest, Views and Montville Day Tour with Lunch (included in Gold-star package):

    The Sunshine Coast's hinterland and its quaint mountain village of Montville provides a great atmosphere combining rainforest with Australia's version of an English village which was established way back in 1887.

    Take the opportunity to browse through the variety of galleries, art studios and craft shops on display, then take a guided walk through the hinterland proper for an indication of the amazing range of native fauna in the rainforests of the area.

    DAY 5: MOOLOOLABA

    Mooloolaba is one of many resort towns along the Sunshine Coast, the kind of place where the beaches cafes and and restaurants along the waterfront get packed during summer. Today you’ll head there to enjoy a lunch cruise. 

    Mooloolaba Seafood Lunch:

    Glide through the Mooloolaba river waterways, cruise past the Mooloolaba Wharf and Yacht Club and marvel at the luxurious waterfront homes on Minyama island. Dine on fresh seafood (including the famous, locally caught Mooloolaba prawns) while taking in the views.

    After your cruise, stay in Mooloolaba a bit longer to browse the shops, sit at a cafe or experience one of our gorgeous sunsets from the beach, then return to your accommodation or dine out.

    "Just to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had in Canada/Alaska thanks to Ben. He did a great job with our Travel Itinerary everything went to plan I would recommend Australian Escapes and this holiday to my friends and family we are definitely going to do this holiday again. I did give Ben a ring and thanked him and told him what a great job he did. We are looking forward to our next holiday with Australian Escapes." Rosanna M.

    "I was one of the ladies who went with Cherrie to Norfolk. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and thought you did a marvellous job organising it all for us. The accommodation in both Sydney and Norfolk was outstanding - I had never been to either places before and could have stayed much longer in Sydney, as the view from our hotel windows was wonderful. Everyone on Norfolk was so friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. Thank you so much for making our holiday so enjoyable." Jan W.

    "Hi, have finally returned. Wonderful, wonderful trip. We think we loved Paris and its age/artworks but all was full of laughter fun and learning. Paris apartment was beautiful, & quiet when windows were closed, which wasn't bad anyway. The street is full of lots of restaurants and cafe's. (we also loved Shakespeare & co bookshop.) Fruit and chocolates in most rooms and champagne which I think we only drank in Brussels. we were ready for bed everywhere else though we almost had it for morning tea at Amsterdam on check in. Magnificent. Cheers." Val C.

    "Have just returned from our wonderful trip to the UK. Just wanted to say a huge thanks for your organisation, we had the best holiday ever, an absolutely marvellous time, the tour was magnificent. We would recommend the Trafalgar Britain and Ireland Winter delights tour to anyone who wants to do adventurous travel, learning about other countries, and making friends. The coach was actually over half full of Aussies! Thanks so much for organising such a memorable holiday for us." Lee D.

    "Deb and I are very grateful for the work you have put into our holiday. 10 days in and we are blown away by the quality and location of the motels and apartments. Many thanks." Jen W.

    "My husband and I have recently returned from a holiday to Canada and Alaska booked through Australian Escapes. The itinerary was planned to take in all aspects of the holiday we required. The travel transfers worked seamlessly and the accommodation was at a standard that met our expectations of comfort and location. We absolutely loved the cruise and surprise upgrade to our stateroom. From our experience with this recent trip I would recommend Australian Escapes." Margaret & Bill T.

    "We've arrived back safely after a thoroughly enjoyable trip where all the arrangements ran like clockwork, for which we want to thank you and your team, especially Sonya and Skye. We'd have no hesitation in recommending you and Volga Dream cruises to anyone who asks. Kind regards and thanks again." Irene and Blake S.

    "I want to thank you for all the accommodation you arranged for us during our holiday in North Queensland in August. It was all excellent. The transfers went very smoothly too and we couldn’t have been more pleased with our holiday. Thank you for making everything so easy." Gloria K.

    "My life has been like a whirlwind since I got back. I am now on holidays and catching up with people that I have not had time to contact since coming back. Thank you so much for organising my trip to The States and Canada for me. I had a great time and everything went really well. All flights went well. The hotel you booked me into in Champaign was a really old home with beautiful gardens, all done up and run by two gay guys. It was really quaint and I loved it. I had a great time, everything went without a hitch, I loved all the accommodation that you organized for me and I would like to wish you a happy Christmas and all the best." Marlene S.

    "A message of thanks to you and your staff. The holiday went off without any problems and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and and had a wonderful time. Again many thanks." Dianne D.

    "We are back and rested after a hectic few weeks (away), but everything worked out extremely well. Thanks so much for all your organisation – once you get used to the trains and buses, life becomes easy. Once again, thanks to you and the team for all the organisation from both Lorraine and I – we really enjoyed the holiday. All the best." Bob C.

    "We just wanted to let you know that the arrangements you put in place for us in WA worked beautifully. You said the Margaret River accommodation was exceptional and it certainly was both in terms of location and facilites. Thanks again." Betty and Clancy S.
