Dear Olie,

Thank you so much for organising such a memorable and enjoyable trip. We had a fantastic time in Australia, it was a really special holiday.

I would just like to emphasize how exceptional the accommodation and service was at Orpheus Island, El Questro and Bamurru Plains. The apartments in Port Douglas and Darwin were perfectly clean and comfortable and worked well. I think we would have also liked to have been a bit more active but that is something we would know to specify another time.

In summary, Orpheus Island was super relaxing, very beautiful, had wonderful food and great service plus there were lots of activities available. The day in Port Douglas was very full, I think we tried to fit too much; we were constantly racing to keep up with ourselves, however we did see a lot, the driver/guide was good and the walk with the local aboriginal person a particular highlight. The accommodation at El Questro was exceptional especially our little lodge on the edge of the Chamberlain Gorge. We had good excursions but they were not very strenuous. The guides there were also amazing and really wanted to share their knowledge with us, a highlight was the bird watching. Bamurru Plains was our last stop and here the experience of going out onto the flood plains in the air boats was truly unforgettable. The food was also excellent and a relaxing place to end our trip.

Best wishes
