Your Australia travel itinerary:

Days 1 - 2: Sydney

Fly from the UK to Sydney.

Day 3: Sydney

Welcome to Sydney, one of the most photogenic cities in the world. Take a stroll around Circular Quay and soak up the views of Sydney Harbour including the shining white sails of the Opera House and the huge steel arch of the Harbour Bridge. If you’re feeling brave, perhaps sign up for a Bridge Climb, where you’ll walk above the roaring traffic to the top of the bridge (with a harness of course) for fabulous harbour and opera house views, as well as a unique perspective on the rest of the city.

Days 4 - 5: Hunter Valley

Leave Sydney behind and enter the sun-drenched countryside of the lush Hunter Valley, where you’ll call in at a vineyard or two and taste the local wines. The Hunter Valley is known for its Semillon and Shiraz, but try a few different grape varieties and vintages and find your favourite tipple. It’s not just wine that’s on offer – you can also gorge your way through craft beers, decadent chocolates, cheeses, olives and olive oils.

Day 6: Blue Mountains

Admire the rugged landscapes of the Blue Mountains, watch the indigo-hued mist emanate from the eucalyptus forests and discover what gave these dramatic peaks their name. Park yourself in one of the various lookout points for fabulous views – try Echo Point in Katoomba where you’ll be able to see the Three Sisters and all the way down the Jamison Valley. If you’re feeling more energetic, take a hike along the various walking trails or hire a mountain bike. And don’t forget to try out the tea and cakes in one of the quaint local cafes.

Days 7 - 9: Sydney

It’s time for the highlight of your trip - board your seaplane and fly over Sydney, gaining a whole new perspective on the glittering blue harbour below, before touching down on a secluded beach for a romantic picnic. With three more nights in the city, you’ll have plenty of time to tick off the sights you missed at the beginning of your Journey – perhaps dine out in Darling Harbour, ascend the Sydney Tower or take a stroll around the Royal Botanic Gardens and look out for flying foxes. Or just take it easy with a day at the popular Bondi Beach where you can try your hand at surfing.

Days 10 - 11:

Depart Sydney and return to the UK
