The cosmopolitan capital of Brisbane is a hub of activity with gardens, vineyards, man made beaches, fantastic dining and animal adventures. If cuddling a koala is on your bucket list, visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. In Lifou, put your toes in the snowy-white sand and experience Chateaubriand – not the culinary dish, but the beach and bay. Caledonia vanilla is a must-have souvenir (you can tour the plantations, too). Your first touchpoint in French Polynesia is Bora Bora, the most romantic island in the world. With two days and an overnight, you’ll have lots of time to enjoy its sugar-sanded shores. Whatever you do, get in the water and explore its turquoise lagoon – and shop for Tahitian pearls.
