Today has also been left free to spend as we please. For those looking to explore the region surrounding Melbourne, there’s the opportunity of an optional tour along what consistently features in the Top 10 of the world’s greatest scenic coastal drives, the Great Ocean Road. Departing from Torquay, home to the world-famous Bells Beach, our tour will take us through laid-back beach resorts along Victoria’s dramatic coastline to our end destination, the iconic stone monoliths known as the Twelve Apostles. If you’re remaining in the city, today is a great opportunity to explore Melbourne’s quirky laneways, whose street art provides fabulous photo opportunities.
Or why not take a trip to Phillip Island, home to the world’s largest colony of Little Penguins, to view the Penguin Parade. The Little Penguins spend most of their day swimming and foraging at sea, then at dusk they waddle back to their nests on land. It’s a sight not to be missed. Alternatively, take a morning excursion to ride on the Puﬃng Billy steam train through the Blue Dandenong Ranges, with an Aussie-style elevenses of Bush Billy Tea with lamingtons, Vegemite and crackers served beforehand.
Included meals: Breakfast
Following breakfast this morning, we board our flight to Alice Springs, in Australia’s Red Centre, whose red earth and blue skies so typify Outback Australia. On arrival, we enjoy a sightseeing tour, visiting the Old Telegraph Station, the Royal Flying Doctor Service, which has been saving lives in rural and isolated parts of Australia for more than 90 years, and the School of the Air, which provides an education remotely to children living in the most far-flung areas of the Outback. Later, we check in to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, home for the next two nights.
This evening, there’s the opportunity to enjoy an authentic Outback bush BBQ. Huddle around a cosy campfire under the desert skies at the traditional cattle camp, whilst tucking into a superb barbecued steak. Enjoy a cold beer or chilled wine from the bar while a bush balladeer sings timeless Australian songs. Finally, the camp lights are switched off and a knowledgeable star guide will decode the night skies as we bathe in the velvety darkness of an Outback night.
Included meals: Breakfast
Our day is free to relax or explore as we wish. Choose to join a popular excursion to the Western MacDonnell Ranges; a great opportunity to get a true taste of life in the outback. The full-day tour takes us through the stunning scenery of Simpson’s Gap, home to various plants and wildlife, including the black-footed rock-wallaby. The excursion also visits Standley Chasm, one of the ‘must see’ spectacular geological and cultural icons of Central Australia.
Included meals: Breakfast
After breakfast we board our coach for the drive along the Stuart and Lasseter Highways to Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock. Upon arrival we visit Kata Tjuṯa, also known as the Olgas, a group of large, domed sandstone rock formations. The domes of Kata Tjuta are sacred to the local Anangu Aboriginal people, and are believed to be over 500 million years old. We then make our way to the Desert Gardens Hotel, our overnight accommodation.
After freshening up at the hotel we will be taken to a viewing area to witness the sun setting behind Uluru. Sparkling wine and nibbles will be served whilst you and your travelling companions watch the remarkable changing colours of Uluru as the sun sinks below the horizon.
Included meals: Breakfast
Early risers have the option of viewing Uluru at sunrise, for a different perspective on this ancient and sacred monolith. After breakfast, we depart for a tour of the base of Uluru, getting as close as is allowed to the Rock. Learn more about its historical and cultural importance to the indigenous people of this area of Northern Territory. We will then leave the Red Centre behind as we take an afternoon flight to Cairns, in Tropical Far North Queensland. We’ll head straight to our hotel, the Hilton Cairns, on arrival. Situated in a prime spot right on Cairns’ Esplanade, this superior hotel is our home for the next six nights, and the scene of the Christmas festivities to come.
Included meals: Breakfast
Our first day in tropical Far North Queensland has been left free for you to do as much, or as little as you like. For the chance to explore one of the world’s most ancient tropical rainforests, dating as far back as 180 million years, come with us on our optional tour to the Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation. During the excursion, we’ll see dramatic jungle-clad gorges, wild rivers, and tumbling waterfalls while taking a walk with an Aboriginal guide as well as a cruise to spot saltwater crocodiles. At Cape Tribulation, an isolated headland, stroll on the beach where the rainforest meets the reef.
If you prefer to stay in Cairns today, there’s so much to see and do, including numerous shops and art galleries, as well as Cairns’ famous Night Markets. Featuring over seventy different shops and stalls selling authentic local crafts and souvenirs, as well as a food court offering street food from around the world, the Night Markets are the perfect place to enjoy dinner and hunt for some souvenirs.
Included meals: Breakfast
Merry Christmas! Begin the day with a hearty breakfast to set you up for the celebrations ahead. Our day is free to spend as we please, perhaps with a stroll along the Esplanade followed by a picnic on the grass in the sunshine or even a swim in Cairns’ lagoon pool. This evening we gather in the hotel to enjoy a celebratory Christmas buffet dinner and drinks with our new-found friends.
Included meals: Breakfast and dinner, including selected alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
After our day of festivities, today is another of our Freedom Days to spend however we wish in Cairns. A very popular optional excursion is our tour to Kuranda, the village in the rainforest. Our tour begins as we travel to Kuranda village via the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, soaring above the treetops with astounding views over the rainforest. There is plenty of time to browse the craft markets, visit the butterfly sanctuary, or enjoy one of Kuranda’s many laid-back coffee shops. We begin our afternoon with a visit to meet the Pamagirri Aboriginal people at Rainforest Station. Enjoying nothing more than sharing their culture and traditions, we join a Yarning Circle, where we can listen to stories and ask questions. After a traditional dance performance and trying our luck at boomerang throwing, we return to Cairns on the unique Kuranda Scenic Railway. Passing over 40 bridges and through 15 tunnels, the railway is a feat of engineering and a railway journey to remember.
Included meals: Breakfast
No holiday to Australia can be complete without a visit to the Great Barrier Reef. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s most enduring natural wonders, the Reef’s stunningly beautiful coral and colourful marine life is a place like no other. Our exciting excursion to the Great Barrier Reef begins with a journey aboard a high speed catamaran as we zip across the Coral Sea to the Outer Reef.
We spend several hours at the Outer Reef for you to enjoy as you wish. The more active among us can snorkel in the sheltered coral lagoon or, for an additional cost, join the marine biologist on a guided snorkel safari. There is also the opportunity to have a go at scuba diving (introductory or certified), join a Seawalker Helmet dive, or see the reef from above on a scenic helicopter flight. Those who would rather not get wet can still experience the underwater world of the reef with a ride in a glass-bottomed boat, or semi-submersible reef viewer. A buffet lunch is served on board the platform.
We return by catamaran to Cairns later in the afternoon, bringing our thrilling Great Barrier Reef day to a close
Included meals: Breakfast and lunch
Our final day in Cairns has been left free for you to choose how to spend your day. A last opportunity for some shopping, or maybe just a day relaxing by the hotel pool. For those interested in further activities, we highly recommend a half-day visit to Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures, one of the best places to see crocodiles and local wildlife. There are miles of timber boardwalks and paths winding through woodlands and rainforest where you can see an array of wildlife, including beautiful tropical birds, reptiles, insects and other native fauna. We also enjoy a boat cruise on Hartley’s Lagoon to see crocodiles and other wildlife on their unique wetland, whilst learning about wildlife conservation in the region.
This evening, an excellent way to finish your time in Far North Queensland is a sunset dinner on board a sailing catamaran.
Included meals: Breakfast

This morning we will view the most essential sights of Sydney with a comprehensive sightseeing tour and lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour. We begin by travelling through some of the city’s coolest inner-city suburbs to the iconic Bondi Beach, with time to enjoy a stroll on its famous golden sands, before passing the beautiful Double Bay and Rushcutters Bay on our way back to the city centre. Our tour will then bring us to Hyde Park, Australia’s oldest park, whose 40 acres contain the ANZAC Memorial; Parliament House and Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. This unique ‘chair’ is a Sydney landmark made of exposed sandstone rock, cut into a bench shape by convicts in 1810 as a gift to Governor Macquarie’s wife. This location is also the perfect spot for a group photo, with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge behind. The sightseeing tour will then lead us to Circular Quay, where we board the MV Sydney 2000 for our fabulous lunch cruise around stunning Sydney Harbour. The delicious two-course lunch is the perfect accompaniment to the unrivalled views as we cruise past the Opera House; the perfect way to end our first morning in Sydney. After disembarking, our afternoon is free to spend soaking up the atmosphere around the harbour.
