Three Capitals Classic

Duration
7 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,240

Take the opportunity to experience three of Australia’s capital cities. See the sights of Sydney before heading to Canberra, the national capital, then visit the highlights of Melbourne.


This 7 day tour takes you to three of Australia’s most culturally rich and fascinating cities, including a day trip to the nation’s capital, Canberra.

Sydney welcomes you with its sparkling harbour, iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. A guided walking tour of the historic Rocks area gives you an insight into Sydney’s convict past. In the afternoon, enjoy the cosmopolitan city it has since become, with a tour covering the Opera House, the Royal Botanic Gardens, and famous urban beaches, including Bondi.

Specifically founded to be Australia’s capital city, Canberra is home to the War Museum, High Court and Parliament House. Get a breathtaking overview at Mount Ainslie Lookout. You’ll then return to Sydney for a harbour cruise, which allows you to hop on and off at leisure to explore the shoreline. Included is entry to Taronga Zoo, where you can meet koalas, kangaroos and other natives, along with a variety of international guests.

Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital with endless café, restaurant, shopping and entertainment options. You’ll have a full day at leisure to enjoy this unapologetically European city. Ride a tram, visit the National Gallery of Victoria, or perhaps book a table at the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant, for a uniquely Melbourne experience. The following day, enjoy a sight-seeing tour, ending with a twilight excursion to see the renowned ‘Little Penguin Parade’ on Phillip Island.
