Your Australia travel itinerary:

Days 1 - 2: Sydney

Fly from the UK to Sydney.

Days 3 - 7: Sydney

Explore the sights of Sydney, including the gleaming white sails of the Sydney Opera House and the buzzing restaurants and bars of Darling Harbour. Take a stroll around the peaceful Botanic Gardens, learn to surf on world-famous Bondi Beach or take the ferry to Manly for magnificent views of the Harbour Bridge. While you’re here, you’ll ascend the bridge’s inner arch, see its internal structure and take in fabulous views of the Sydney Opera House.

Days 8 - 9: Cairns

Fly north to sunny Cairns. Take a stroll along the pretty Esplanade and swim in the lagoon, or perhaps shop for aboriginal art in the bustling night markets. For a day trip with a difference, head out of town on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway to Kuranda, where you’ll find a pretty settlement surrounded by forest and filled with arts and crafts markets. Choose to visit the butterfly sanctuary, look for koalas or check out the gorges and waterfalls of Barron Gorge National Park.

Days 10 - 13: Port Douglas

Continue to Port Douglas and discover the underwater delights of the Outer Great Barrier Reef. You’ll spend the day on the warm azure seas, where you can choose to snorkel or dive among the colourful corals, keeping a look out for clown fish, groupers and parrotfish. Port Douglas is also a great base for trips to Daintree National Park and its 135 million-year-old rainforest, where you can hike, drive or even zipline through the trees.
