From the capital to the Outback, and on to the Great Barrier Reef: your tour goes through the heart of Australia. Start in Sydney, where a walk through The Rocks perfectly compliments the sunbathers at Bondi Beach. The Uluru-Kata National Park is next—take a hike here to see one of the most epic sunsets in the world. A breezy cocktail on the beach in Port Douglas ends a trip that is bound to stay with you for a lifetime.

Travel Itinerary

Destination 1:  Sydney

Begin your Australian adventure with four days in the beating heart of Sydney. Start your day off at Darling Harbor, and feel the buzz as you walk through a port packed with excellent restaurants, retailers, and aquariums. Get some sun at Bondi Beach, where white sands and blue waves combine to create the perfect city-side respite. Top it all off with a cruise along The Rocks—the perfect place to go for a sunset vibe. 

Destination 2: Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Venture into the outback to hit your next stop: the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. What a better way to start exploring this magical wonder than climbing the Uluru mountain itself? Afterward, take a hike through the Kata Tjuta and experience the red sandstone formations which define the blazing landscapes of the Outback. And whatever you do, don’t forget to watch the sunset across the red plains, best enjoyed with your feet up and a glass of wine in hand. 

Destination 3: Port Douglas

After the hypnotic red landscapes of the Uluru, end your trip on the coast in one of Australia’s most breezy coastal towns. Start with a snorkel in The Great Barrier Reef—the Outer Reef is particularly exciting for first-timers—and swim in some of the bluest waters you’ll ever see. For something a bit more relaxing, take a day to hang out at Four Mile Beach, the in-the-know beach for locals and chill tourists alike. Enjoy the Australian sunset one last time as it stretches out across the ocean before heading back to the States.
