Details

You will start your amazing vacation in Sydney and enjoy a one hour tour of the Sydney Opera House followed by a tasting plate for 2 at Opera Bar. Enjoy the climb of your life above the Sydney Harbour Bridge offering spectacular views of the Sydney Opera House! The balance of your time in Sydney is at your leisure to explore. Consider dining on the magnificent harbor, sailing, self-guided walking tours of the Historic Rocks, even shopping at the local markets, or exploring further from the city with day trips out to the Blue Mountains or to the Hunter Valley wine regions.

Ayers Rock will give you an appreciation of the real Outback. Your Australia travel tours will have you learning about the flora and fauna including an insight into Aboriginal culture. From dining under the stars and watching the sunrise at "Uluru" there is something that is quite simply magical about the outback and the ancient culture that still calls it home today.

Your final destination is Cairns, in the heart of the tropical north. Included is a day trip out to the Great Barrier Reef, where you can swim, snorkel, dive, or take a glass bottom boat to see the reef. You have two days to spend entirely at your leisure and can choose between visiting the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest, hot air ballooning, white water rafting, Kuranda Markets or taking a day trip to the Atherton Tablelands. Perhaps simply doing nothing at all appeals!
