Day 1 - Arrive Sydney

On arrival at Sydney Airport, make your own way to your hotel (flights anytime). The rest of the day is at leisure.

Day 2 - City Sights

See the sights of the city. First stop will be at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair for magnificent views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Then travel to Bondi Beach for a mid morning break to take in the iconic surfing beach before returning to the city to explore one of the most recognisable buildings of the 20th Century with a guided tour of the Sydney Opera House.

This afternoon, board a lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour as we head east to La Perouse, a historical headland suburb with vires across the bay to Captain Cook’s landing place at Kurnell in 1770. See the historical buildings and learn how the Aboriginal people were impacted. Back on land, wander the cobbled laneways of the Rocks district on a walking tour and hear how this area has transformed from a British colony of convicts to a thriving entertainment precinct

Explore the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park. View the famous Three Sisters rock formation from a perfect vantage point before arriving at Scenic World, where you’ll witness the vastness of the Blue Mountains.
