Duration
13 Days
Prices From:
US$ 5,580

FIRST-CLASS | TAILOR-MADE: Experience Australia’s diverse landscape and world-class landmarks on this journey across the nation. Explore the famous cities of Sydney and Melbourne, delve into ancient culture and see Uluru/Ayers Rock, cruise the Great Barrier Reef, and discover the Daintree Rainforest.


This 13-day Australian vacation showcases some of the country’s greatest highlights, including Sydney, Uluru, the Great Barrier Reef, and Melbourne. It features first-class accommodations and small group tours.

Your journey across Australia begins in Sydney, the nation’s largest city and home to one of the most beautiful harbours in the world. A panoramic city sights tour will introduce you to some of the city’s most famous landmarks, including the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Bondi Beach, and Mrs. Macquarie’s Point. Afterwards, board a luxury yacht for a cruise of the beautiful harbour. Feast on a three-course BBQ lunch as you enjoy views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge from the water. While based in Syndey, you’ll take a day to explore the Blue Mountains, exploring the landscape of sandstone mountains, deep ravines, and thick eucalypt forests and seeing landmarks such as the Tree Sisters and Calmsley Hill.

Fly to Australia’s Red Centre, where you’ll discover the mystical sandstone configurations of Uluru/Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta/The Olgas. Start with a tour of Walpa Gorge and exploration of the 36 sandstone domes of Kata Tjuta. A Sounds of Silence dinner that evening transforms the desert into a magical landscape. Sip on sparkling wine as the sun sets over the desert and allow the sound of didgeridoo to transform the landscape. Then feast on a delicious meal with the changing colours of Uluru as your backdrop. Spend the rest of your time in the Red Centre exploring the Pitjantjatjara Lands and learning about Aboriginal culture and stories of the Dreamtime. You’ll also experience the desert before dawn and watch the light of dawn transform Kata Tjuta and Uluru into brilliant shades of red and orange.

Connect to Cairns in northern Queensland and onwards to Port Douglas, where you’ll explore the waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest living structure. Cruise through the Low Isles and snorkel through protected coral gardens. You’ll also have the chance to ride in a glass bottom boat for intimate views of the undersea life and plenty of time to swim off white-sand beaches. Back on the mainland, explore the Daintree Rainforest from Mossman to Cape Tribulation. Spot Estuarine Crocodiles during a Daintree River cruise, admire views of the Coral Sea from Alexandra Range, search for cassowaries along the jungle boardwalk, and go for a rainforest swim in Emmagen Creek before reaching famous Cape Tribulation beach.

The final stop on your journey through Australia is Melbourne, one of the most livable cities on the planet. A private tour showcases the iconic laneways and arcades of the downtown. Outside the city, explore the Australian bush and meet wild koalas and kangaroos in the company of an expert guide and researcher. Drive the Great Ocean Road, one of the world’s most remarkable coastal drives, and spot the iconic rock monuments, the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge. Hike through Otway National Park and Port Campbell National Park to spot echidnas and lizards, before closing out your time in Victoria by exploring the grasslands of the Western Plains.

At the end of your vacation, you’ll connect back to Melbourne for onward travels.
