This fa­mous spot in the Great Aus­tralian Bight, south­west of Ade­laide, has plenty to of­fer de­spite its small size. Visit SEAL BAY and get to know the tame (and cheeky) lo­cals, with pen­guins, koalas, sea li­ons and, of course, kan­ga­roos all call­ing the is­land home. Take a dip in the CRYS­TAL WA­TERS be­fore head­ing to a gourmet lunch at one of the many cel­lar doors. Make sure to try lo­cal pro­duce, in­clud­ing the purest Lig­urian honey in the world. Dec 11–15; de­parts Mel­bourne; from $654pp/2 per­son room;­ga­roo-is­land.


Food­ies, this , you’ll one’s get for pre­sen­ta­tions you. On­board on the all things gas­tro­nomic, along with work­shops by food and wine per­son­al­i­ties. Choose be­tween cock­tail classes, WINE TAST­INGS and cheese cour­ses – or just go for it and at­tend all three. Be­tween ses­sions, have an af­ter­noon by the pool, take ad­van­tage of the adults-only Oa­sis area and en­joy the di­verse pro­gram of EVENING EN­TER­TAIN­MENT, with live mu­sic and a com­edy club on­board. Dec 8–11; de­parts Mel­bourne; from $515pp/2 per­son


Fa­mous for its out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, this is­land off the coast of Queens­land is great for ad­ven­ture lovers. For an ex­tra-spe­cial ex­pe­ri­ence once you ven­ture off the ship, get up close and per­sonal with the lo­cal sea life by tak­ing part in the WILD DOL­PHIN-FEED­ING pro­gram. Go snorkelling among the SHIP­WRECKS that dot the is­land’s shores, en­joy a bird’s-eye view as you para­sail over the sandy beaches, hire a quad bike or to­bog­gan down the sand dunes. Oct 4–8; de­parts Syd­ney; from $977pp/2 per­son room;­ton-is­land.
