For a hassle-free holiday, rich in culture, wildlife and spectacular scenery, an East Coast Australia escorted tour will not disappoint.

Led by an experienced driver and expert tour director, you’ll experience both the highlights and best kept secrets of this incredible region, enjoying the company of others as you travel and relax each evening.

Highlights of Australia’s East Coast

Whilst you could stop every half hour along the 2,420 kilometres between Sydney and Cairns, to explore a new beach or rainforest trail, here’s a few unmissable destinations:

  • Sydney – one of the most iconic cities in the world, with a skyline that boasts both the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge
  • Bryon Bay – Australia’s most easterly point, famous for its gorgeous beaches and laid back atmosphere. Take a stroll to the iconic Cape Byron lighthouse
  • Fraser Island – stretching over 70 miles along Queensland’d coast, home to uninterrupted white beaches, majestic rainforests and crystal-clear lakes
  • Whitsundays – 74 breathtaking islands in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Marvel at the aqua swirls of Hill Inlet and heavenly sands of Whitehaven Beach
  • Great Barrier Reef – a haven of marine life and colourful coral. Most tours include a cruise from which you can snorkel or ride in a glass bottom boat
  • Atherton Tablelands – an area of immense beauty, full of shimmering waterfalls and emerald foliage, which you can witness from the Kuranda Scenic Railway
  • Cairns – gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the ancient Daintree Rainforest and Queensland’s undisturbed tropical north
