Australia's Exotic Vacation Islands   by Ken MacKenzie

It doesn't matter how many documentaries you've seen or how much you've heard about Australia or spoken to others about it, once you've taken your first look at Australia you'll be forever hooked and want to come back for what can only be described as an exotic vacation.

Eventually, the urge will be there, irresistibly, to see it all. There's no doubt about it. You've not experienced the world until you've seen the wonders of Australia. Have you ever imagined what it would be like to swim in crystal clear water, sit under a palm tree while sipping on some exotic drink or laze about beside a pool on a balmy night ? If you have, then Australia's exotic islands are for you. They're just irresistible !

However, it's a big country consisting of some 8,000 islands, including the island State of Tasmania Australia's island resorts and exotic island getaways offer a richly rewarding experience and are great romantic places for that exotic vacation.

Some of the best honeymoon places in the world can be found on Australia's islands with resorts situated on islands ranging from small coral ones, where you can walk on the beach to the Great Barrier Reef, to an island made of pure sand - the World Heritage listed Fraser Island.

The Great Barrier Reef, off Australia's east coast, is one of the wonders of the natural world. It is World Heritage listed and is one of Australia's, and the world's, premier holiday destinations. The combination of glorious weather, pristine rainforest, white sandy beaches, and an ocean varying in hue from blue to turquoise to green, ensures it's where the world wants to go to lie on the beach, swim, surf, snorkel, sail, bushwalk and bird watch.

When it comes to exotic vacation spots, Queensland boasts an inviting array of easily accessible islands, where you'll find unspoilt beaches, rainforest and superb resorts. Queensland's islands offer a unique holiday experience and with resorts in the Tropical North, Whitsundays and Southern Queensland, the hardest decision is to choose your perfect exotic vacation spot.

If you're travelling to Sydney, why not get on another plane ? It's well worth the effort, as you'll have the opportunity of experiencing the wonders of Lord Howe or Norfolk Islands. Being sub-tropical getaways they're quite different and, are among the world's most natural heritage destinations.

Located 450Kms off mainland Australia, Lord Howe Island is the lone survivor of an extinct volcano chain. Its incredible, natural environment, with rainforest clad hills, green lagoons and unique wildlife, is perfect for cycling around. Norfolk Island is about 1,700Kms east-north-east of Sydney, or a two and a half hour flight. Much of the island is covered by national parks and reserves where birds are prolific. The sub-tropical climate makes it ideal for fishing, bushwalking, scuba diving and snorkelling. Whether you're looking for a casual getaway or an indulgent escape, Australia's beautiful islands cater for all ages, tastes and budgets.

Immerse yourself in the ultimate exotic vacation at some of the world's most romantic places.
