Day 1. Welcome to Sydney

At Sydney Airport you will be met by a driver who will take you to your city hotel. You will be able to check in to your room, where you can rest after the long flights.

The hotel is centrally located within easy walking distance of many landmarks, like the famous Sydney Opera House.

Day 2. Sydney life

If you like walking, I recommend the beautiful waterfront walk from Woolloomooloo to Anzac Bridge. This 11 km route passes through several landmarks, including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Darling Harbour.

Stop for lunch at one of the many Barangaroo restaurants or visit the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. 

Other attractions in Sydney include Chinatown, the Botanical Gardens, the Taronga Zoo or the historical Rocks area.

Or perhaps visit the Sydney Tower, which offers stunning views?

Day 3. Blue mountains

After breakfast, you will meet your driver and start your day trip to the Blue Mountains.

The tour includes private transport to the mountains, visit at wildlife park and return back to Sydney.

We will send you more information about the Blue Mountains and lunch recommendations closer to your trip.

We recommend a visit to the famous beaches of Bondi or Manly.
Both are easily reached from the city centre.

Alternative Sydney attractions include the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, Chinatown, Botanical Gardens, Taronga Zoo or the historical Rocks area.

You will continue your journey by transfer to the airport for your 1.5 hour flight to Brisbane.

Day 6 & 7 Sandy beaches and sun

Spend a relaxing day at the Brisbane Lagoon or take a train to the Gold Coast.

Other attractions in Brisbane include the bohemian Fortitude Valley area, a day trip to Moreton Island where you can feed wild dolphins, or the museums and galleries of Southbank.

Transfer to the airport and fly to the North Queensland. Upon arrival in Cairns, meet your driver and transfer to your city hotel.

In the afternoon, return by historic train, where you can see the rainforest scenery from the train.

Transportation to the Gondola, train and gondola are included in the package. Explore the shops of downtown Cairns by foot one your way back to your hotel. 

Day 11. Beach life

Spend your last day relaxing at the Lagoon or by the pool at your hotel.

I recommend an evening walk on the Esplanade at sunset and a visit to the popular Cairns Night Market.
