Your Australia travel itinerary:
Days 1 - 2: Sydney
Fly from the UK to Sydney.
Days 3 - 6: Sydney
See the iconic sights of Sydney in style as you take to the skies for a helicopter tour of the city. Admire panoramic views of the harbour spread out below you, including the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach as well as one of Australia’s most scenic stretches of coastline. Back on terra firma, spend a day exploring the forests of the Blue Mountains, including the dramatic peaks of the Three Sisters.
Days 7 - 10: Port Douglas
Arrive in pretty Port Douglas, grab your snorkel and flippers and dive into the colourful underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. You’ll head out to sea onboard Aquarius, a luxury sail boat, and explore pristine beaches of the Low Isles. Here you’ll find world-class snorkelling (or, if that’s not your thing, glass-bottomed boating) and you’ll feast on a deliciously fresh seafood lunch. Back in Port Douglas, take some time to explore the ancient Daintree Rainforest..
Days 11 - 13: Uluru
Fly on to the giant sandstone monolith at Uluru, found among the swirling sands of the Red Centre. The rock is sacred to aboriginals, so learn all about its significance and then watch its colours change from oranges and reds to pinks and purples as the sun sets. You’ll also take a look around the domed peaks of Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas. Later, dine on a gourmet meal served outside in the desert under a blanket of stars.
Days 14 - 15:
Depart Uluru and return to the UK.
