This morning we head to the airport for our first internal flight to Melbourne, the second-largest city in Australia. It’s also one of the most historic, as seen in the stunning and extremely well-preserved Victorian architecture of its public buildings and grand houses. Once we arrive, you’ll get to witness the gorgeous architecture and much more with a sightseeing tour of the city. Among the places we will visit are the Victoria Markets, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Captain Cook’s Cottage (which you can also enter at your own expense), the Rod Laver Arena and Federation Square. After soaking up these sights, we also head out of the city centre to see two lovely waterside suburbs: Port Melbourne and St Kilda. For the next three nights, you’ll be staying at the four-star Clarion Suites Hotel, if departing prior to September 2020, or the Stamford Plaza if your departure date is from September 2020 onwards.
A Freedom Day in Melbourne, where we have the opportunity to take a trip to Phillip Island, home to the world’s largest colony of little penguins, to view the ‘Penguin Parade’. Alternatively, take the Puﬃng Billy steam train through the Blue Dandenong Ranges or you can also join us for a tour along one of the most spectacular coastal drives in the world, the Great Ocean Road. Departing from Torquay, home to the world-famous Bells Beach, our tour will take us along Victoria’s dramatic coastline to our end destination, the iconic Twelve Apostles.
Following breakfast this morning, we board our flight to Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia’s Red Centre. Before landing, we may have the opportunity to view the world’s largest monolith from our aircraft. Rising from the flat surrounding scrubland, Uluru is a site of deep cultural significance to the Aboriginal communities of the Northern Territory. Upon arrival we make our way to the four-star Desert Gardens Hotel. Later, we depart for a rock base tour enabling us to discover more about its historical and cultural importance. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine with your travelling companions whilst witnessing the changing colours of Uluru as the sun begins to set. It’s truly a photographer’s delight.
This morning, we have the option of viewing Uluru at sunrise. After breakfast, we leave for a tour of the impressive series of rounded sandstone domes known as the Olgas. Your afternoon is at leisure to enjoy one of the many activities on offer. On your second evening in Ayers Rock Resort, watching the sunset at the Sounds of Silence dinner is highly recommended.
After a leisurely morning, we travel along the Lasseter and Stuart Highways to Alice Springs. Upon arrival we make our way to the Crowne Plaza Lasseters Hotel (for departures from Sept 2020) or, for earlier departures, the DoubleTree by Hilton.
Uluru to Alice Springs: 5hrs 30min
Our day is free to relax or explore the outback. You may wish to take a trip to the Western MacDonnell Ranges; an excellent opportunity to get a real picture of life in the outback. The full-day excursion takes us through the wondrous and picturesque scenery of Simpson’s Gap and the towering granite walls of Standley Chasm.
Nestled within the MacDonnell Ranges, Alice Springs is an iconic town made famous by its rich pioneering history and ancient indigenous culture. This morning you may wish to take an adventure in slow motion on an optional hot air balloon trip over the outback landscapes. Later, we board our coach and enjoy a sightseeing tour. Visits include the Royal Flying Doctor Service, the School of the Air, and the Old Telegraph Station, now a museum and the site of the old springs from which Alice gets its name.
Later in the afternoon, it’s time to make our way to Alice Springs Rail Terminal ready for our magniﬁcent overland rail journey to Darwin, on Australia’s northern coastline. Known for being one of the world’s iconic rail journeys, The Ghan was named after the Afghan cameleers who once traversed this route. Our twin accommodation is in Gold Service cabins, air-conditioned, private sleepers, all with upper and lower bunk beds, en-suite shower, wash basin and toilet. Single travellers will be accommodated in Gold Service single cabins, which are conﬁgured as a lounge chair by day, converting into a bed at night, with shared bathroom facilities at the end of each carriage. Whilst onboard, all our meals are included, as are a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Following dinner in the Queen Adelaide Restaurant, enjoy drinks with your travelling companions in the Outback Explorer Lounge.
Breakfast and dinner PLUS selected onboard drinks included
After a leisurely on-board breakfast, The Ghan arrives into Katherine, where we have the opportunity to visit the awe-inspiring Katherine Gorge and the surrounding Nitmiluk National Park. Katherine Gorge is one of a series of thirteen sandstone gorges the Katherine River has carved into the landscape over time, and during your visit, you’ll learn all about how the gorge was named, as well as the local flora and fauna. After our stop, we once again board The Ghan for lunch and the final leg of the train journey to Darwin. Here we’ll be staying at a quality hotel on Darwin’s esplanade: the Mantra Esplanade.
Breakfast and lunch included
Darwin is the capital of Australia’s Northern Territory and is known for its laid-back fusion of frontier outpost and modern city. Your day has been left totally free to spend in your own particular way. Perhaps visit the Defence of Darwin Experience, an immersive, interactive multimedia experience telling the story of Darwin’s role in World War II – a very important time in Northern Territory history. Alternatively visit the thundering waterfalls, rainforest pockets and sacred sites of Litchﬁeld National Park. For those wishing to venture further aﬁeld, a full day overland or ﬂightseeing excursion to Kakadu National Park can be arranged.
We rise early to make our way to the airport for our one-stop flight to Cairns. Once we arrive in this coastal city, we will be transferred to our home for the next four nights, either the Hilton Cairns (for departures from September 2020) or the DoubleTree by Hilton, for departures prior to this date – ready for our adventures to the Great Barrier Reef and beyond.
No holiday to Australia is complete without a visit to the Great Barrier Reef, a World Heritage Site and one of the world’s most famous natural wonders. It’s a truly once in a lifetime experience, with its stunningly beautiful coral and colourful marine life making this a place like no other. Our full-day excursion to the Great Barrier Reef begins with a journey aboard a high-speed catamaran to the Marine World platform on the Outer Reef. We have five hours here at the Outer Reef for you to enjoy as you wish, and you don’t even need to get wet to see the wonders of the Reef with a glass-bottomed boat, underwater observatory and semi-submersible reef viewer all offering the chance to see the array of life and colour beneath the water. For the more active, you can snorkel in the sheltered coral lagoon, or, for an additional cost, join the marine biologist on a snorkel safari or perhaps have a go at scuba diving. There is also the option to see the reef from above on a scenic helicopter flight.
Breakfast and lunch included
Today is another of our Freedom Days to spend how you wish in Cairns, although we are also offering an optional excursion to the rainforest village of Kuranda. Our visit begins with a performance by the local Tjapukai people of dance, music and storytelling, before we take the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway to Kuranda village, ascending above the treetops with far-reaching views over the rainforest. Once in Kuranda, there are several pleasant ways to spend the next few hours, including perusing the markets, visiting the butterfly sanctuary or exploring the Koala Gardens. We will then make our way back to Cairns on the unique Kuranda Scenic Railway. Passing over 40 bridges and through 15 tunnels, along one narrow part the track even has to cling to the rock face: a railway journey to remember.
This is the second of our Freedom Days during your stay in tropical northern Queensland. If you prefer to stay in Cairns today, there’s much to see and do, including numerous museums and art galleries, as well as over 200 walking tracks, each leading somewhere different. Today you can also come with us the nearby Daintree Rainforest, the world’s oldest rainforest. It’s also home to the World Heritage Site Cape Tribulation, an isolated headland where the rainforest meets the reef. During our rainforest tour, you’ll see the rainforest’s dazzling variety of flora and fauna, taking a walk with an Aboriginal guide as well as embarking on a cruise to spot saltwater crocodiles.
This morning we leave Cairns, heading to the airport ready for our flight to Sydney. Our transfer will then take us to our new home for the next four nights, the View Hotel Sydney, offering incredible views over Sydney Harbour Bridge. The sparkling harbour is of course also home to the world-famous Sydney Opera House. Sydney has plenty to discover outside of the harbour however; for instance, its suburbs promise a real change of scenery with their pristine sandy beaches and native bushland. The heart of the city itself is also bursting with excellent shopping opportunities, world-class eateries and a lively arts culture.
This morning we will see Sydney in all its glory with an extensive sightseeing tour and luncheon cruise. We start by travelling through some of the city’s trendiest inner-city areas to the iconic Bondi Beach, before passing the beautiful Rushcutters Bay and Double Bay on our way back to the city centre. Our tour will then bring us to Hyde Park, Parliament House and Mrs Macquarie’s Chair. This unique ‘chair’ and landmark is in fact an exposed sandstone rock, cut into a bench shape in 1810 by convicts as a gift to Governor Macquarie’s wife. It’s not only a fascinating landmark but also the perfect spot for a photo of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. The sightseeing tour will then lead us on to a relaxing luncheon cruise around the stunning Sydney Harbour – the perfect way to end our first morning in Sydney.
Breakfast and lunch included
Today is the first of our Freedom Days in Sydney, though you are also welcome to join us on our optional trip to the Blue Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This National Park is home to an expansive area of Australia’s iconic bushland carpeted with gum trees, with deep gorges and towering peaks making this a simply spectacular place not to be missed. During our excursion, we will visit a series of lookouts where you can take in some of the best views of the Blue Mountains, including Echo Point, the prime viewing point for the striking Three Sisters rock formation. We will also take in the beautiful Wentworth Falls and the village of Leura, which showcases many of the region’s local artists and hosts several garden festivals.
Explore Sydney at your own pace with this second Freedom Day. Today there’s the opportunity to take an optional behind the scenes tour of Sydney Opera House, otherwise, the choice is completely yours. Our Tour Manager will be happy to help and lend their recommendations – you could do anything from visiting the Kuringai National Park to climbing the Harbour Bridge! Sydney is home to some amazing experiences and our Tour Manager will do their best to suggest the best for you.
Our last day in Sydney is yours to enjoy as you like until we depart for the airport: the end of an amazing adventure in Australia. Flights to our chosen UK airport all stop in Dubai for a change of aircraft before the second leg back to the UK.
