The Journey – Discover Brisbane, Noumea, Lifou and Port Vila
Brisbane: Take some time to explore your departure city of sunny Brisbane with its beautiful Botanic Gardens, man-made Streets Beach, vibrant riverside restaurants and bars and abundance of shops and boutiques.
Noumea: Once on the Coral Sea your first stop is Noumea, the capital of New Caledonia packed full of French influences from its luxury boutique hotels to its Parisian shopping, beautiful spas and fine restaurants. The island is also a natural paradise with the hilltop Parc Forestier, rainforests home to exotic flora and fauna, and beautiful beaches.
Lifou: Next, onto Lifou, New Caledonia, the largest island in the archipelago of coral atolls known as the Loyalty Islands. Long stretches of white sand beach, small coves, limestone caves, grottos and imposing cliffs give the island one of the most dramatic landscapes in the pacific.
Port Vila: Your final stop in Vanuatu is Port Vila, which has seen more history and change than many towns ten or even a hundred times its size. When it comes to culture, tradition and history, this is a city with an incredible depth of each.
Take the whole family on an epic adventure around the Pacific, seeing some of the most beautiful islands in the world.
