Itinerary

5 Nights – Sydney
7 Nights – Gold Coast
2 Nights – Brisbane


UK – Sydney (5 nights): Being met at the airport in Sydney and transferred to your hotel will get your trip off to a relaxing start. From there you will have five nights to explore this incredible city. There’s plenty to do, from wandering the harbour area, taking in the views of the Sydney Opera House and even scaling the famous bridge, to seeking out some fresh seafood caught just offshore. It’s also worth heading to Darling Harbour on the outskirts of the central business district and walking up an appetite in its pedestrian precinct.

Sydney – Gold Coast (7 nights): Since Australia is so vast, you will fly from Sydney to Brisbane to start the stretch of your holiday on the Gold Coast. The first destination in this coastal city that you’ll want to explore is Surfers Paradise, a three-kilometre long beach which has a reputation that precedes it. With the perfect conditions to learn to swim, accompanied by a white sand beach, it can be hard to tear yourself away from the place that definitely deserves its name. There is plenty more to explore and families are bound to want to enjoy the theme parks that are found in this part of Australia. With SeaWorld, Wet ‘n’ Wild and the Australia Zoo to choose from, those seven nights can easily get used up. Also don’t leave before heading inland a little and seeing all that the Lamington National Park has to offer. Hiking trails will allow you to discover the ridges and valleys, rainforest and incredible wildlife on your own two feet.

Gold Coast – Brisbane (2 nights): Round off your Australian adventure in the capital of Queensland, Brisbane. This lively city offers plenty to entertain visitors, so expect to have a busy couple of days. Head to the Brisbane City Hall and climb its clock tower for wonderful views over the surrounding area. The unique copper dome of the Customs House, which is located right by the river, is bound to catch your attention. This heritage building houses a restaurant where you can enjoy some classic Australian cuisine in opulent surroundings. The highlight for many people visiting Brisbane is a trip to the Lone Pine Koala Park, where you can come face-to-face with Australia’s cuddliest inhabitant. Families love this attraction, with parents getting just as excited as the kids.

Brisbane – UK: On your final day you will be transferred to Brisbane Airport for your return flight to the UK.
