It's hard not to fall in love with confident, cosmopolitan Sydney; it's Australia's oldest and largest city, and its most familiar. You'll have three days here to explore the sights of the famous harbour, home to the iconic Harbour Bridge, botanic gardens and the shimmering sails of the Opera House. But don't stop there. Scratch beneath the surface and you'll discover a city brimming with superb restaurants, quirky beachside suburbs, bustling markets, fashionable nightspots and stylish boutiques. Relax on golden sand beaches or head beyond the city limits to the rugged landscapes of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains and the world-class vineyards of the Hunter Valley.

Fly to Australia's Red Centre, a region of scorched red desert and rich Aboriginal heritage. You can watch the sunrise over the Outback and explore the rounded rock domes of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), before driving deep into the desert in the company of an Aboriginal guide. Or, head into the wilderness to learn about the fascinating myths surrounding this sacred region. A sunset touring experience is included, where you can gaze in wonder at the changing colours as night falls over iconic Uluru. The optional Sounds of Silence dinner features a gourmet barbecue accompanied by tales of Aboriginal folklore under the stars. Alternatively, opt for a Tali Wuru dinner, an intimate, fine dining experience hosted on an isolated dune overlooking Uluru itself.

You'll have a choice between our three accommodation options below, or take the chance to splash out on a stay at the stunning Longitude 131º.

Spend your days relaxing on palm-fringed white sands, discovering the hidden wildlife of the Daintree Rainforest on secret jungle trails, or snorkelling among UNESCO-listed wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. An included Low Isles cruise takes in the region's incredible underwater world, where alien ecosystems of brightly coloured coral host an incredible diversity of marine life. There’s everything from unique tropical fish to pods of whales and dolphins. You'll have a choice of standard and superior hotels here, or why not splash out with an upgrade to the excellent Coconut Grove. Just a two-minute stroll from the beach, it features stylish apartments, sweeping views and a secluded lap pool.
