Your Australia travel itinerary:

Days 1 - 2: Sydney

Fly from the UK to Sydney

Days 3 - 6: Sydney

Sydney is where your big adventure begins. Your accommodation is conveniently located in central Sydney, making it the perfect base to explore the city. You won’t be far from the historic Rocks District where you can enjoy stunning views across the harbour to the iconic landmarks of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge – don’t miss taking a scenic harbour cruise to see the iconic landmarks from a different perspective. While in Sydney, sample its famous beaches. There are plenty to choose from and each has its own vibe – head to Bondi Beach for the people-watching or soak up the laid-back atmosphere of Manly. Four days in Sydney gives you ample time to explore the surrounding region – take a day trip to the breathtaking Blue Mountains World Heritage site or visit the Hunter Valley wine region for a day of fantastic wine and local cuisine. For more information on day experiences, speak to our travel experts.

Days 7 - 9: Uluru

Today, catch your flight from Sydney to Uluru. The isolated and sacred Aboriginal site of Uluru is one of Australia’s icons and upon arrival you’ll be left truly breathless. Spend time enjoying the magic of this huge monolith – you could walk around the base of Uluru with an Aboriginal guide and learn about their traditions and culture or take a sunset camel ride. Watch as the rock seemingly changes colour, from dusky pink to fiery red and mauve – an unforgettable experience. After a day exploring Uluru, it’s time for dinner under the outback sky. A feast for the senses, the Sounds of Silence dinner serves delectable cuisine accompanied by Australian wine, all underneath a blanket of stars with Uluru standing in the distance – magical.

Days 10 - 14: Port Douglas

Today, you’ll say goodbye to the outback and fly on to Cairns – the gateway to two of Australia’s World Heritage sites: the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. You’ll be staying in the small seaside town of Port Douglas – approximately an hour’s transfer from Cairns. Relax into life in the tropics – from soaking up the sun on the sparkling Four Mile Beach to tucking into fresh seafood; enjoy the relaxed vibe of Port Douglas. Exploring the Great Barrier Reef is a must and your included Quicksilver Outer Barrier Reef Tour offers you the chance to get up close to an incredible array of underwater life. Whether it’s snorkelling, diving or seeing the reef from a glass-bottomed boat – you can experience it all on this incredible day out. With five days to enjoy Australia’s tropical north, you’ll also have plenty of time to discover the treasures of the Daintree Rainforest. From spectacular gorges and waterfalls to great walking trails – explore the world’s oldest rainforest.
