Project Description

Australia

Sydney is Australia’s largest and most populous city. Sydney is famous for its long, dazzling beaches and metropolitan charm. Though the city features many examples of classic Victorian architecture, its skyline is shaped by modern towers and marvels like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Australia’s warm climate is perfect for enjoying the scenic shoreline or embarking on adventures across the Australian outback, where visitors will find an array of exotic animals unique to the continent like koalas, kangaroos, and platypus. Sydney offers the best of the beach life in the heart of a modern metropolis, and it’s always open to visitors.

BEST OF THE RED CENTRE & EASTERN AUSTRALIA

25 days, Melbourne to Sydney
Australia is over 7 million sq km (4.35 sq mi) of sand, reef, rock, koala, wine, sailing, ocean, city, culture, Dreamtime, and so much more than we could possibly list here. It would take several lifetimes to explore it all. This sprawling 25-day adventure comes pretty close, though. Kick things off in cosmopolitan Melbourne by discovering the city’s hidden laneways. Then head up the Great Ocean Road to a couple of national parks before journeying deep into the fabled Outback for a rendezvous with the iconic Uluru. Next, meet the Great Barrier Reef from Cape Tribulation, cruise the glorious Whitsundays, visit a G Adventures-supported cultural centre, learn to surf, and explore Sydney. Exhausted yet? Just wait’ll you’re actually there!

Hop aboard this 14-day trip down Australia’s east coast and make the most of the time you do have. Offering a solid mix of must-do experiences and uncommon adventures, you’ll learn to surf at Byron Bay, sail the Whitsundays, and trek through Mossman Gorge in the Daintree Rainforest.
