Your Australia travel itinerary:

Days 1 - 2: Sydney

Fly from the UK to Sydney

Days 3 - 6: Sydney

Discover the best of sensational Sydney, from the deep blue waters of the twinkling harbour, to the gleaming white sails of the iconic Opera House. This relaxed city is blessed with 300 days of sunshine per year, so venture out to the surrounding beaches, hit the harbour on a cruise, or take a stroll in the botanical gardens and look for flying foxes. For spectacular harbour and Opera House views, don your jumpsuit and harness and climb the inner arch of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, an exhilarating experience.

Days 7 - 10: Surfers Paradise

Board your flight to the fashionable beaches of the Gold Coast and top up your tan at hedonistic Surfers Paradise. Relax on the beach by day and hit the buzzing bars and cool clubs by night in this energetic town. Head to the foreshore for Surfers’ buzzing café and restaurant scene, where there’s also late-night shopping every day of the week. For a quirkier souvenir, take a look around the beachfront markets with their craft and jewellery stalls. Your Journey includes a fantastic day trip to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, a zoological garden filled with tropical birds, kangaroos, dingoes and a giant saltwater crocodile.

Days 11 - 15: Palm Cove

Fly on to Cairns, where a private transfer will take you to upmarket Palm Cove for a touch of beachside sophistication. This town’s relaxing promenade is lined with melaleuca trees, the perfect place for a quiet stroll. Come here to relax in the spas, play a round of golf or two, kayak in the waves, or simply just chill out on the soft powdery beach. While you’re in town you’ll board a catamaran and sail to the outer reaches of the Great Barrier Reef at Agincourt Reef. Here you can choose to dive, snorkel or take a semi-sub to explore the colourful corals and kaleidoscopic fish, or, if you are feeling really extravagant, how about flying over this World Heritage site in a helicopter?

Days 16 - 17:

Drive to Cairns and return to the UK
