Day 1 to 5 - Sydney

Begin your Australian city adventure in Sydney. During your 4-night stay, take a unique behind the scenes glimpse into the city’s most famous icon – the Sydney Opera House. This 2-hour intimate small group tour will whisk you backstage to see the workings of this cultural wonder.

Of course, there is plenty more to explore, check out our recommended activities and excursions in Sydney.

Day 6 to 9 - Melbourne

Melbourne has long been hailed as the sport and food capital of Australia, building its reputation around fine boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants and world famous sporting events.

The city’s colourful Laneways are littered with boutique food and wine choices and a guided walking tour is the best way to ensure that you don’t miss some of these culinary hidden gems. Your local knowledgeable guide will provide a unique insight into the history and culture of the city and uncover some its finest boutique shops, bars and restaurants.

Further afield is the Great Ocean Road – one of the country’s best scenic drives, and the penguin inhabited island of Phillip Island, just an hour south of Melbourne. For more ideas see our choice of Melbourne experiences.
