Imagine, during an outback walkabout on the world’s oldest continent, coming across a cave painting that pre-dates recorded history by thousands of years. And following it up by witnessing the traditional “Dreamtime” dance as performed by the ancient Aboriginal artist’s descendants. Imagine being in the midst of a tropical rainforest, surrounded by wildlife found nowhere else on earth. And picture yourself at the foot of Ayers Rock at sunset, the most sacred site of the Aborigines and perhaps Australia’s greatest mystery of all. Now, imagine two people on a tiny coral island, surrounded by nothing
but clear blue water and sky, savouring another perfect Aussie afternoon. You are one of the two. The other...well, we’ll leave that up to you.
Mystery, intrigue and romance - sides of the Aussie character we rarely boast. But ones that, after two weeks, are sure to capture more than just your imagination: They’ll capture your heart.
