Days 2 - 3: Sydney (Warrane). You’ve got two days to enjoy the best of the city, including a walking tour of Sydney’s highlights from the Opera House to the Royal Botanic Gardens, and some time on Bondi Beach’s golden sands. You’ll have plenty of free time to explore at your own pace too.

Days 4 - 5: Byron Bay (Cavvanbah). Take a short flight over to surfing Mecca, Byron Bay. Learn how to ride the rollers with a surf lesson, chill on the beach, opt to visit the lighthouse or to take a guided kayak adventure, and enjoy the beach sunsets, live music, and artsy atmosphere.

Day 6: Byron Bay (Cavvanbah) to Noosa Everglades via Stokers Siding. Stop to meet some farm animals before we head to Noosa Everglades and feast on a lovely dinner with the group. We’ll be spending the night in an eco lodge tonight, chilling by the campfire.

Day 7: K'gari day trip. Wake up in our eco camp before heading to legendary K'gari. Explore epic sand dunes, float around Lake Mackenzie, take a dip in crystal waters, spot dingoes, and feast on a delicious lunch before heading back to our Noosa Everglades camp.

Day 8: Noosa to Airlie Beach. Fly to Airlie Beach, a lively beach town buzzing with backpackers, bars and shops. Immerse yourself in nature this afternoon with an optional canoe tour through the Everglades, before partying in Airlie’s pubs and clubs.

Days 9 - 10: Whitsunday Islands. Hop aboard our converted racing yacht for 2 unforgettable days sailing around the Whitsundays! Snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, visit the ‘world’s best beach’, sail an ex racing yacht, chill out on deck, and enjoy dinner under the stars.

Days 11 - 12: Magnetic Island (Yunbenun). Head back to dry land and take a scenic train ride to Townsville, before hopping on the ferry to Magnetic Island where you’ll enjoy a bottomless breakfast with the koalas at Selina Koala Village, take the Fort Walk, and spot rock wallabies at dusk.

Day 13: Magnetic Island (Yunbenun) to Cairns (Gimuy). Take the ferry to Townsville and the train to tropical Cairns. Prepare for a unique dinner tonight with a quality bush tucker dining experience.

Day 14: Daintree Rainforest day trip. Today will be full of unique experiences as we take a day trip to Daintree Rainforest. Then get to know local Kuku people as you take an optional art lesson with an Aboriginal artist.

Days 15 - 16: Cairns (Gimuy). You’ve got two free days in gorgeous Cairns. Explore the Great Barrier Reef by catamaran, take a once-in-a-lifetime scuba diving experience, hit the Skyrail, and push your limits with an adrenaline-pumping skydive. After dark, head out for drinks in Cairns’ buzzing bars.

Day 17: Cairns (Gimuy) to Uluru. A trip to the Outback would not be complete without visiting breathtaking Uluru! Take a flight over from Cairns and settle into our chilled lodge before an optional visit to the ‘Field of Lights’.

Days 18 - 20: Uluru. There’s no better way to round off your Aussie adventure than with three days at Uluru. You’ll watch a selfie-worthy sunrise over the ancient rock, trek into Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, visit Walpa Gorge and the Valley of the Winds, and take a day trip to Kings Canyon. Round off the trip watching the sun set over Uluru with a glass of bubbles in hand. Wow.

Return transfers aren’t included either, but a taxi is easy to organise (ask your travel advisor for more information). The journey time is around ten minutes, depending on traffic.
