The Worldwide Navigators Difference
You’ll land in Sydney today, the capital of Australia. Your guide will collect you from the airport and give you a glimpse into activities during the week ahead. You’ll have the afternoon in Sydney to explore at your leisure. You might consider heading down to the Sydney Harbor, which is regarded as one of the most picturesque harbors in the whole world. You’ll see the city’s iconic opera house in the port and the Sydney Harbor Bridge off in the distance. The area offers plenty of green spaces, cafes, restaurants and shops to explore.
Today you’ll spend a second day in Sydney. You’ll meet your guide back at the harbor for a walking tour of a neighborhood called The Rocks. You’ll navigate cobblestone streets and meander through the neighborhood visiting local shops, galleries and pubs. After an hour or two at The Rocks, the group will head to the famous Bondi Beach, one of the world’s premier surfing spots. You can relax on the sand and catch some rays, take a surfing lesson, or browse the area shops and boutiques. This evening, the group will return to the Sydney Opera House for an evening of entertainment.
Today the group will board a small plane for a short, three-hour flight from Sydney to Cairns on the country’s Gold Coast. Once you arrive, you’ll start with a scenic cable car ride on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway over Barron Gorge National Park. After a quick lunch, the group will head to Palm Cove, a small village and home to the best beaches in the area according to locals. You can spend your afternoon snorkeling, swimming, or kayaking along the coast. The group will spend the night in Cairns in preparation for tomorrow’s big adventure to the Great Barrier Reef.
Today you’ll visit one of the seven wonders of the natural world. The Great Barrier reef is a huge reef system, more than 1,800 miles in length. More than 2 million people trek to see the reef each year. The group will catch a boat in the morning and head out to the coral. The boat ride will take just under two hours.
Those who are scuba certified can dive the reef once the boat arrives. Those that are more comfortable with a snorkel can elect to see the reef that way. And those who are more comfortable aboard the boat will still be able to appreciate the giant reef from above. The group could encounter whales, sea turtles, birds, sea snakes, fish of all shapes and colors, vibrant corals, dolphins, sharks and so much more in this enchanting world under the sea.
The group will board another plane this morning for a three-hour flight to Melbourne. Once the group lands, you’ll board the City Circle Tram for a tour of some of the city’s most popular spots. After a quick lunch, the group will take a wine tour to the Yarra Valley where there are more than 70 vineyards and wineries. After an afternoon full of tasting and tours, you’ll return to Melbourne for the night.
The group will board a plane this morning to return to Sydney. After the hour and a half flight, you will spend the rest of the afternoon continuing your exploration of Sydney. Your guide will take you to the city’s Darling Harbor, where you’ll spend the rest of the day. You’ll visit the Australian Maritime Museum before having some free time to explore the area as you wish.
Your adventures to the land down under have come to an end. After a late breakfast in Sydney, your guide will get you to the airport in time for your flight home. Australia is a spectacular place to visit and entirely too large to see everything in one week. But once you get home, you can start planning your return to discover more of this unique corner of the world.
Continue your adventures in travel with a week in Australia. Traverse the country from the capital of Sydney to the Gold Coast jewel of Cairns, then back to the east for a stop in Melbourne. This trip has lots of adventure packed into seven days.
