An amazing harbour and excellent beaches await you in Sydney. Visit "The World's Most Livable City", Melbourne, Australia.


They’re both beautiful! Despite an historic rivalry, Sydney and Melbourne both stand tall as world class hubs of culture and lifestyle. On this 11 day trip, you’ll discover why – and you might not want to leave!

A thriving international hub, Sydney finds the perfect balance between an outdoor and indoor lifestyle. Take a cruise on the harbour past the Sydney Opera House or climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge for a view that will be imprinted on your memory forever. A walking tour of the Rocks reveals Sydney’s roguish and fascinating past, while a visit to the Botanical Gardens or Bondi Beach offers a glimpse of modern Sydney at play.

Australia’s undisputed capital of fashion, sport and culture, Melbourne takes you in its arms – or cozy laneways – and doesn’t let go. Whether it’s gallery hopping, catching an Australian Rules Football game, browsing boutiques or ogling street art while sipping the perfect flat white (Australia’s favourite coffee), this southern city is sure to charm you.
