Spare a thought for poor old James Bond. He’s been begging M for a summer mission downunder for years. But no, he has to shiver away in a London winter quantum of solace yet again. Maybe it’s time Australia had it’s own super spy anyway. Think you’re up for it? Here are some secret agent adventures for your eyes only…
Learn how to climb to a villain’s lair on a 2-day Rock Climbing adventure near Perth. Once you’ve scared the living daylights out of yourself, rest up at the Rendezvous Observation City Hotel in the tropical lagoon style heated pool and Vanilla spa.
Play Goldeneye as you thunder along the bumpy ground of Cape Schanck, Victoria in a 55 ton battle tank under the very capable control of an expert driver. With your body still rumbling, tumble into bed at Peppers Moonah Links Resort, or putter along and have some golf a la Goldfinger at one of Australia’s finest golf resorts.
Being a double-O agent is not all about thrills and spills. You have your legendary reputation for romance to think about too. A perfect setting is watching a full moon rise from the sea during the Staircase to the Moon festival in Broome from March to October. Then really turn on that Bondesque charm at the Moonlight Bay Suites, enjoying stunning views over Roebuck Bay.
Get shaken with a stirring experience onboard a Cocktail cruise of Sydney Harbour. Ninety minutes of canapé fuelled fun accompanies a beautiful Sydney skyline sunset. Continue your martini moves back at The Menzies Sydney piano bar before dinner at the sumptuous Parkside restaurant.
Rendesvous with your favourite femme fatale at Cairns to soak up the mystery and exotic nature of two favourite Bond pastimes—train travel and sky gondola rides. The Kuranda Scenic Rail tour includes a picturesque rail journey to Kuranda. Give the bad guys the slip wandering through the rainforest village, before taking a sky gondola ride to the Tjapukai Abriginal Cultural Park – just watch out for a big guy with braces trying to gnaw through the cables ok? Back in town, the beautiful Novotel Oasis Resort Cairns is the ideal location for Bond boys and girls to watch the credits roll on their day of adventure.
