Bec Hewitt discovers the beauty of the spectacular Four Mile Beach, cruises to the incredible Great Barrier Reef and dines at award-winning seafood restaurant, 2 Fish. And Matt Wilson discovers the majestic Na Muang Waterfalls and visits Chaweng Beach in Koh Samui.

Here’s what you can expect for the season finale:

London_Social

Denis Walter has a magical surprise in store for Potterheads: a Harry Potter walking tour of London, following in the footsteps of the world’s most famous wizard.

It begins at a laneway near where author J.K. Rowling worked, which is the inspiration for Nocturn Alley, before reaching the Millennium Bridge “destroyed” by Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

After dropping his bags at a 19th century building which is now the luxurious Radisson Blu Edwardian Vanderbilt hotel, Denis is off to the West End to catch a show.

Port Douglas_Social

Bec Hewitt continues her trip through Far North Queensland, taking a stroll along spectacular Four Mile Beach at Port Douglas before checking out the five-star Pullman Port Douglas Sea Temple Resort & Spa.

After tucking into delicious barramundi at the award-winning 2 Fish she heads offshore with Quicksilver Cruises to try snorkelling at stunning Agincourt Reef, a part of the Great Barrier Reef.

Koh Samui_Teaser2

Matt Wilson goes chasing waterfalls in the jungle of Koh Samui in Thailand, starting at the majestic cascades of Na Muang, which translates to “purple waterfalls” because of the rock faces.

After a dip in the plunge pool he takes a stroll along the popular Chaweng beach, in an area renowned for its beaches, and ends by the pool at the Novotel Samui.

Fiji_Teaser

Meanwhile Stevie Jacobs is still in Fiji, exploring the Coral Coast, an 80-kilometre stretch of inviting beaches on Viti Levu. He checks into the Shangri La Fijian Resort and Spa on the private Yanuca Island, which includes a nine-hole golf course and offers family fun activities like tie-dying.

Stevie then does some souvenir shopping before immersing himself in Fijian culture with a traditional kava ceremony.
