Your Itinerary

Day 1 to 2 - Sydney

Arrive into Sydney to spend three days exploring this exciting city. Wander through the historic Rocks area and soak up the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Enjoy Darling Harbour’s attractions and great restaurants, shop at Paddington’s unique markets and enjoy the famous beaches of Bondi and Manly.

Day 3 to 9 - Pacific Coast

Pick up your 2 berth motorhome and head south out of the city towards Melbourne. As you leave the city behind follow the scenic coastline and encounter spectacular mountain scenery and the awe-inspiring coast between Australia’s two largest cities. We suggest stopping at Canberra, Eden, Lakes Entrance and Phillip Island, before you reach the cosmopolitan hub of Melbourne.

Take time to wind along the coastal Ocean Road route to Adelaide. Drive along the rugged coastline passing the dramatic Shipwreck and Limestone Coasts, witness the stunning beaches and cliff edges, freshwater lakes and towering dunes before reaching Adelaide. Spend a night in Adelaide’s leafy city before dropping off your motorhome and flying to Australia’s Red Centre.
