Our first day in Perth starts with a sightseeing tour of the city and its surrounds, beginning at King’s Park, a sprawling landscape of grassed parkland, botanical gardens and natural bushland in the heart of Perth. At the nearby town of Fremantle, known as Freo to the locals, we visit the Shipwreck Galleries for a fascinating insight into the area’s maritime history. We return to Perth via a cruise on the Swan River passing some jaw-dropping cliffside mansions on the way.

Included meals: Breakfast

Coast of Rottnest Island, Australia, with varying green and blue water

Day 6: Perth – Rottnest Island

Today’s adventure is a visit to Rottnest Island, a paradise of white-sand beaches and secluded coves.

We enjoy a buffet lunch before taking a tour of the island, discovering pristine beaches, the unique flora and fauna, plus the Wadjemup Lighthouse, built in 1896.

After enjoying a picnic lunch, we spend the afternoon at Flinders Chase National Park, a vast area of wilderness featuring the iconic Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. Flinders Chase is a sanctuary for many native Australian species such as koalas, wallabies and echidnas, plus a colony of playful long-nosed fur seals. As our tour continues, we learn how the park is rapidly regenerating following the devastating bush fires of 2019. We return to our hotel after a truly wonderful day among Australia’s wildlife.

Day 9: Adelaide, 2 nights

We say goodbye to the wildlife of Kangaroo Island and take the ferry back to the South Australian mainland.

This heritage is reflected in its Fachwerkhäuser – traditional Germanic-style half-timbered buildings. Adelaide is a small city surrounded by rolling hills and the Mount Lofty Ranges, and on arrival we will take a sightseeing tour to explore its fine Victorian architecture and its expansive parks and gardens surrounding the River Torrens. Finally, we arrive at our home for the next two nights, the Crowne Plaza Hotel .

It’s unarguably the sporting capital of Australia, and our tour will take in the Rod Laver Arena, home to Australian Open tennis, and the MCG, or Melbourne Cricket Ground. Our accommodation for the next two nights is the Pullman on the Park.

Included meals: Breakfast

The coast of the Great Ocean Road with sandstone cliffs and islands

Day 12: Melbourne Freedom Day

A Freedom Day to spend as we please. There are numerous enjoyable activities available, such as a ride on the Puffing Billy, a steam train, through the Blue Dandenong Ranges, or a coastal drive along the spectacular Great Ocean Road. Or maybe take a trip to Phillip Island to view the ‘Penguin Parade’ where scores of Fairy Penguins make their way from the ocean to their burrows on the beach.

Included meals: Breakfast

Day 13: Uluru, 2 nights

We take a guided tour of the rock base, discovering more about its history and legends.

Tour Highlight

Tonight, we dine under the stars at the Sounds of Silence experience. Our evening begins with canapés and sparkling wine served on a viewing platform overlooking Uluru. As the sun sets and darkness falls, the sounds of a didgeridoo fill the air and candles glow as you sit down to enjoy a lavish three course meal with drinks in the most spectacular of settings.

Included meals: Breakfast, dinner and drinks

Day 14: Uluru

Before breakfast, there’s an opportunity to view sunrise at Uluru – well worth the early start! Later we take a tour of Kata Tjuta, or the Olgas, a series of soaring sandstone rock domes which are both a natural wonder and a cultural landmark. This evening, we highly recommend a visit to the Field of Light; a light installation of more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with glass spheres that bloom as darkness falls over Australia’s spiritual heartland.

Included meals: Breakfast

Day 15: Alice Springs, 2 nights

Included meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 16: Alice Springs

Alice Springs is a small town with a rich indigenous culture and pioneering history. This morning’s sightseeing tour includes visits to two institutions which provide an essential lifeline to people living in the remotest parts of the Outback; the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the School of the Air. We also visit the Old Telegraph Station, the site of the old springs from which Alice gets its name, and ANZAC Hill which has panoramic views over the surrounding MacDonnell Ranges.

Our afternoon is free to spend at leisure – maybe visit the Desert Park, an authentic recreation of the desert habitats and life as lived by the local indigenous people for thousands of years, or perhaps take a sunset camel ride?

Day 18: Darwin Freedom Day

Darwin is a laid-back tropical city in the Northern Territory, known locally as the Top End.

For those wishing to venture further afield, a full day overland or flightseeing excursion to Kakadu National Park can be arranged.

Included meals: Breakfast

CAerial view of Cairns harbour with boats out in the sea and hills in the background

Day 19: Cairns, 5 nights

The rest of the day is free to settle in and look forward to the adventures ahead.

Included meals: Breakfast

Day 20: Cairns Freedom Day

Today is a Freedom Day in Cairns, to enjoy as you wish. A lovely way to spend your day is with an optional excursion to Kuranda, the ‘village in the rainforest’. The journey to Kuranda is on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, gliding above the treetops with spectacular views over the rainforest. We spend a pleasant few hours exploring Kuranda’s attractions which include the Koala Gardens and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (entry at own expense). Artists and craftspeople gravitate to Kuranda, and showcase their wares in its markets. We return to Cairns on the heritage Kuranda Scenic Railway, crossing 40 bridges and through 15 tunnels on its uniquely breathtaking journey.

Included meals: Breakfast

One of the wonders of the underwater world, showing colourful marine life

Day 21: Great Barrier Reef

Tour Highlight

A full day visit to the Great Barrier Reef will be a highlight for many of our guests. Our high-speed catamaran will zip across the ocean to the Outer Reef, where we disembark onto a platform which will be our base for the day. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the natural world, and the world’s largest coral reef system. Whether you want to snorkel surrounded by marine life, swim in the warm waters or explore the depths in a semi-submersible vessel, there is plenty of time to enjoy these activities and more. There are other activities available at an additional cost for those looking for more adventure, such as scuba diving, a snorkel safari guided by a marine biologist or taking a scenic helicopter flight over the reef for spectacular views.

Included meals: Breakfast and lunch

Daintree Rainforest canopy overlooking the coast and hills in the distance

Day 22: Cairns Freedom Day

Another Freedom Day to enjoy in Far North Queensland. For an unforgettable experience, take a day trip to nearby Daintree Rainforest, the world’s oldest rainforest.

The excursion continues to Cape Tribulation, a remote headland, with glorious unspoilt beaches and walking tracks through the lush forests. If you prefer to stay in Cairns today, there’s lots to enjoy, whether you browse the many shops and galleries or take a cooling dip in the infinity pool at Cairns Lagoon.

Included meals: Breakfast

Aerial view of Port Douglas marina

Day 23: Cairns

We drive north this morning and visit Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures. As well as being the best place to see crocodiles in Queensland, there are miles of timber boardwalks winding through rainforest from where you can see an array of wildlife, including beautiful tropical birds, reptiles, insects and other native fauna. We later arrive at Port Douglas, a tropical beach resort with a laid-back atmosphere and lunch will be taken in a legendary local restaurant with a true blue Aussie atmosphere. Later, there’s free time to spend on the beach soaking up the tropical sun before we head back to Cairns via Rex Lookout – a viewpoint offering the most picture-perfect scenery.

Included meals: Breakfast and lunch

Day 24: Sydney, 4 nights

This morning we make the short journey to Cairns Airport for our flight to Sydney.

There’s a vibrant cultural scene, a plethora of excellent restaurants and bars and superb shopping opportunities.

Day 25: Sydney 

Tour Highlight

This morning we will be introduced to Sydney in all its glory with an extensive sightseeing tour, beginning with a drive through some of the city’s most fashionable inner-city areas en route to the golden sands of Bondi Beach. On our way back to the city centre we pass beautiful Rushcutters Bay and upmarket Double Bay before arriving at Hyde Park, home to Parliament House and Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. This unique ‘chair’ is actually an exposed sandstone rock, cut into a bench shape in 1810 by convicts as a gift to the wife of Governor Macquarie. It also happens to be a perfect spot for ‘the’ photo of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Our sightseeing tour culminates in the best possible way as we board our vessel for a lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour, accompanied by the most spectacular views – the perfect way to end our first morning in Sydney.

Included meals: Breakfast and lunch

We were taken to all the places we wanted to see, accommodated in first class hotels, flew from a town to another without a hitch, had a sight-seeing tour in every city and were always accompanied by James, our Australian guide who we couldn't praise enough.
Dr Tawfik, Wonders of Australia
The organisation and skill devoted to making this special was exceptional. From the tour managers down to the coach drivers and the choice of hotels there is really nothing I could fault. One big, perfect adventure from start to finish. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Waters, Wonders of Australia
Have just returned from Australia with this excellent company. When you phone the company you nearly always speak to the same knowledgeable person, nothing was too much trouble. The trip was well planned and all the hotels they used excellent.
