Australia

Ideally you’d get hooked to Australia enough to stay there for months, but a week will do to get a flavour and see some of the best sights of the country. Expect the unexpected here. Australia is a place where the world’s oldest cultures share exist in the vast faded plains, stylish cities and unimaginably blue waters. You only have to travel a short distance from the major cities before you’ve landed somewhere truly out of this world. Dive to see the Great Barrier Reef, witness the action at the incredible wildlife parks or roam the hip streets of Sydney. Foodies must know that the Australian cuisine is on to the radar of the world’s best chefs. Try kangaroo steak complemented by indigenous greens at high-end restaurants, or take a bush tucker tour for local flavours. No trip to Australia would be complete without freshly shucked oysters, wine or some Emu delicacies.

Day 1

Arrive in Sydney (hopefully in a manner that you get the whole day), so you can pack in some of the most accessible sites on the first day. Head to Circular Quay to get a fantastic view of Sydney Harbour Bridge before strolling to the Sydney Opera House and soaking up some history at The Rocks. If you have time, take the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly beach.

 

Day 2

Soak in Sydney on this day. We have plenty of options you can choose from, keeping it leisurely or packed. Start with a ride to the top of the Sydney Tower to experience Sydney’s highest open-air attraction, Skywalk, 853 ft. above the city. For an introduction to Australia’s wildlife, head to Taronga Zoo or the Sydney Aquarium. Another great choice is Featherdale Wildlife Park, only an hour and a half from the city. If you enjoy museums, put the Australian Museum, the Australian National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour, and the interactive Powerhouse Museum on your list. Finish off your day with a twilight BridgeClimb up the Sydney Harbour Bridge for incredible views of the city.

 

Day 3

Take the train or private transfer to Katoomba for a day, exploring the beauty of the Blue Mountains. Don’t miss the spectacular Three Sister rock formations, best viewed from Echo Point Road at Katoomba and spend some time at Scenic World , where you can ride the world’s steepest railway into a valley full of ancient rainforest, and come back up on a cable car—among other adventures that kids especially will enjoy.

Day 4

Take an early flight from Sydney to Cairns. Some of the major attractions apart from the Great Barrier Reef can be plugged in this day. The Cairns Wildlife Dome, Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park are great options. The latter offers a peek into the traditional ceremonies. Warp up with dinner and a fire-and-water outdoor show.

 

Day 5

This is a big day out and reserved for the GBR with multiple options to see it – a private helicopter ride, personal yacht or bigger boats with glass bottoms. Spend the day with experts who can tell you more about it and take you snorkelling as well. Close the day the Esplanade and eat at one of the bustling cafes and restaurants where tourists and locals throng for typical Aussie food.

 

Day 6

Take a trip to the mountain village of Kuranda aboard the steam train past waterfalls and gorges. In Kuranda, explore the markets, the nature parks or take a Riverboat Tour. You can return on the Skyrail cableway, which carries you over the rainforest. The views are sensational.

 

Day 7

Head back from Cairns to Sydney for your flight back.
