Your Australia travel itinerary:

Days 1 - 2: Sydney

Fly from the UK to Sydney

Days 3 - 6: Sydney

Dynamic Sydney is a world-beater; an effervescent, multicultural and vibrant city filled with sights to see and things to do. Marvel at such iconic landmarks as Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House and the Rocks, wander the picturesque waterfront areas of Circular Quay and Darling Harbour, and hop on the ferry to Manly for classic harbour views. Take a trip to the perennially popular Bondi Beach, where backpackers and sun-worshipers hang out with the rich and famous – not forgetting the many surfers and boogie-boarders who flock here to ride the waves.

Days 7 - 8: Jervis Bay

Watch the whales and dolphins splashing in the turquoise waters of Jervis Bay, a nature-lover’s paradise where surfing, fishing, snorkelling and walking are the order of the day. For exquisite ocean views, follow the White Sands Walk from Hyams Beach to nearby Greenfield Beach – Hyams Beach’s powder-soft sands have been declared the whitest in the world by the Guinness Book of Records, so leave your shoes behind, wander barefoot along the shore and feel the softness between your toes.

Days 9 - 10: Blue Mountains

Just an hour’s drive from Sydney but a whole world away, the dramatic Blue Mountains offer a tranquil escape from the hubbub of the city. Marvel at the spectacular forests and towering peaks of this World Heritage-listed site, named after the blue-hued haze emitted by the region’s dense carpet of eucalyptus trees. Walk the pathways to the majestic Three Sisters, hear the Aboriginal legend of their formation and let the peaks and valleys of this splendid region take your breath away.

Days 11 - 12: Hunter Valley

Visit some of Australia’s finest boutique vineyards in the stunning Hunter Valley. Sup on an assortment of wines, from dry whites to sparkling and even fortified varieties. You won’t go hungry either, with tasty cheeses, spiced olives and artisan chocolate all offered up for tasting. With plenty of activities to choose from, the Hunter Valley is not just for wine enthusiasts – enjoy your included sunrise hot-air balloon ride, and perhaps join in carriage rides, golf, horse riding and cooking classes, all just a couple of hours from Sydney.

Days 13 - 14: Port Stephens

Swim in peaceful coves and bask on wide sandy beaches in Port Stephens, an area dubbed the ‘Blue Water Paradise’ – and for good reason. Its gorgeous marine scenery, calm waters and sheltered bays spread across 19 miles of clean white sandy beaches, making it the perfect seaside haven. Activities range from swimming in peaceful coves and basking on wide sandy beaches, to fishing, water sports and whale watching (June to November). For something a little bit different, Stockton Beach, which in some places is nearly a mile wide, is backed by a rolling row of golden sand dunes, where sandboarding, quad biking and tobogganing are popular.

Days 15 - 16:

Return to Sydney and depart for the UK
