Your Destinations

With a plethora of tropical islands, the Great Barrier Reef, Ayers Rock and the iconic Sydney Opera House, it should come as no surprise that Australia is filled with unforgettable adventures. From the world’s largest surf festival in Queensland to unique Aborigine ceremonies across the country, this diverse nation is brimming with cultural experiences. 

There is no other destination on the planet that combines beautiful beaches with hip cities, indigenous tales, expansive rainforests, kangaroos, and boomerang throwing. Australia is an ideal place to visit for anyone who is keen to get outside and explore its rugged landscape. Families with young children will never be short of things to do, while hiking enthusiasts may like to venture away from the tourist tracks for a challenging trek with jaw-dropping scenery.

Sydney

With a world-famous bay, dreamy beaches, designer shops, hipster cafes, gourmet restaurants, and notable party venues, Sydney is one of Australia's premier cities. Sydney is Australia's most populous city with an urban area of more than 4.2 million people. It is the capital of the State of New South Wales and is located on the south-eastern coast of the country.

This daring city is particularly popular with surfers who flock to its incredible beaches. Sydney is also home to the magnificent Opera House where visitors can take a guided tour to learn more about the productions that are performed here.

Referred to as the "coathanger", the Sydney Bay Bridge is a must-see landmark that is best explored by bike.

Alice Springs

Alice Springs was founded in 1872 when a telegraph line was installed to connect Darwin to Adelaide. It is an iconic Outback town in Australia's Northern Territory, surrounded by vast deserts.

Several hours by plane from the major Australian capitals, Alice Springs seems to appear from nowhere. Surrounded by the grandiose vastness of an ochre bush, the city is a modern, lively and picturesque oasis. Todd Mall, the pedestrian street, is a succession of galleries, souvenir shops, pubs and restaurants lined with terraces where it is pleasant to stroll. In the showcases, local Aboriginal paintings evoke an original culture, full of creativity, myths and legends.

In the heart of Australia, this small town of 30,000 inhabitants is the ideal starting point to visit the Red Centre, a region that takes its name from the omnipresent red sand, made famous by the McDonnell rock formations or by pioneers such as John Flynn, creator of the Royal flying doctors, the Flying Doctors.

Watarrka National Park

Watarrka National Park is a picturesque wilderness area located in the north of the country about 330 km southwest of the nearest town, Alice Springs. The park's main asset is Kings Canyon, with its old sandstone walls rising 100 metres from a plateau of rocky domes. The canyon's imposing vertical walls, gorges and pockets of vegetation provide a refuge for a wealth of plant and animal life, making the park an important conservation area and a major tourist attraction.

The park has many hiking trails of varying degrees of difficulty, many of which are adorned with panels highlighting interesting features and telling the story of centuries of Aboriginal culture. The park also has pretty water holes such as Kathleen Springs where visitors can enjoy a refreshing swim and the well-named Garden of Eden with its lush green garden forming a paradise for local fauna and flora. Whether you choose to visit this wilderness by helicopter, camel, quad or on foot, you will be impressed by the region's exceptional natural beauty and unique wildlife.

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

Owned by the Aboriginal people of Anangu and jointly administered by Parks Australia, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in the Northern Australian Territory has profound cultural significance for its traditional custodians. It is home to Uluru, a 348-metre-high burning sandstone monolith inscribed on the World Heritage List by ancestral indigenous peoples.

Visit the Cultural Centre to hear the stories, see the art, and chat with the Anangu guides who will escort you around the Uluru base, take you to Kantju Gorge (where you will see Anangu rock art) and to the Mutitjulu water point.

Palm Cove

Palm Cove is a charming seaside town on the Queensland coast, located about ten kilometres north of Cairns. Restaurants, cafés and hotels are scattered along the Esplanade, while palm trees line the beach and paths. There is a lot to do in this city - key attractions include Skyrail, water skiing, karting, snorkelling, scuba diving, cruises and more.

Take a trip to see the Daintree and Cape Tribulation rainforest, or on the Great Barrier Reef for an unforgettable underwater experience. You can swim there all year round.

Our Offer

Discover Australia: Sydney, Alice Springs & Palm Cove for 10 nights in Standard or Superior category hotels.

This trip offers the best of Australia in 10 nights / 11 days. Starting with Sydney, whose Opera House is set at the entrance to one of the most beautiful bays in the world, you are welcomed to the cosmopolitan yet laid back atmosphere of this spectacular city. Then fly to Alice Springs and enjoy a "road-trip" through the arid landscapes of the outback and discover the unique 'Red Centre' of Australia. Uncover this natural and authentic area, populated by unique fauna and the bucket-list sight of Uluru! Finally, head to the coast for some beach time in Palm Cove.

Your informative and knowledgeable guide will collect you from your Sydney hotel as we start our small group deluxe tour into the heart of the unique Blue Mountains World Heritage Region. The Blue Mountains National Park is one of seven national parks that make up the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. This wonderland of sandstone outcrops, deep ravines and hazy blue eucalypt forests boasts luxury retreats and the world's steepest railway. Today your guide will take you off the beaten track to visit remote lookout locations and discuss the history, flora and fauna of this magnificent region.

Our first stop of the day is at Calmsley Hill a working farm also home to Kangaroos, Emus, Wombats and Koalas. Enjoy morning tea and time to wander at leisure. Departing Calmsley, we commence our drive to the Blue Mountains via the highway. We will visit one of a range of stunning outlooks of the Jamison Valley seeing beautiful vistas. Where possible this will be away from the crowds of tours that visit the mountains each day, thus our guests will enjoy a stress and hurry free environment taking in the views and information imparted by their guide.

Continuing on we arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout point away from the crowds for views of the famous 3 Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains features so much more than this natural attraction you can’t help but admire the unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation. The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colours. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this famous rock formation and time available for you to take some great photos.

Travelling around the mountains, we arrive at Hydro Majestic for lunch – Here you can purchase and pay direct off the menu to the Café or Purchase lunch at the Pavillion.

The afternoon is spent visiting a selection of lookouts. Once you clap your eyes on the view from Govetts Leap you’ll know why it’s one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff. If you’re not mesmerised by the dancing waves of water spray, you’ll be transfixed by the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose Wilderness. The last stop is at the delightful Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens where we stop briefly to enjoy the sweeping views across to Sydney before travelling down the Bells Line of Road to arrive back at your hotel approximately 4.30 – 5.00pm.

The program may be subject to change depending on weather conditions, road conditions or for operational safety reasons. The order of the itinerary may change depending on the season (summer / winter).
