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.
What to expect
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- Circular Quay to get a fantastic view of Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and soaking up some history at The Rocks. Sydney’s highlights, Katoomba (home to the Blue Mountains) and the famous Great Barrier Reef makes most of the family trip. You can also add The Cairns Wildlife Dome and Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park. At the GBR, we give you the option of choosing a private helicopter ride, personal yacht or a bigger boat with glass bottoms. 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. In fact, the whole trip is delightful, especially if you are doing it with the family!
