What To Expect:
Australia Travel Tour Highlights
Southern Australia has much to offer the adventurous traveler, with sophisticated cities, magnificent countryside and wilderness landscapes, and rugged coastline. Begin in Melbourne, whose cosmopolitan vibe offers plenty of amusement in the way of restaurants, shops and historic sites. Outside the city, spend a day on the famous Great Ocean Road, arguably Australia‟s most scenic drive. From there, fly to Tasmania, where you will pick up the rental car that has been arranged and make your way past Cataract Gorge and several small villages en route to Cradle Mountain. Spend two nights at Cradle Mountain before continuing on to explore beautiful Freycinet for two nights. Overlooking Great Oyster Bay, the Freycinet Lodge lies next to the white sand of Hazard Beach and the start of the popular Wineglass Bay walk. Next, fly to Adelaide, where you will sip some vintages in the Barossa Valley wine region and see the city‟s lovely wineries. From Adelaide, fly to Kangaroo Island for three nights at the ultra-luxurious Southern Ocean Lodge. A personalized experience of this “zoo without fences” awaits guests of the lodge: an itinerary of guided excursions is designed daily and often includes exclusive access to otherwise off-limits areas. The adventure concludes in Sydney with three nights at the elegant Four Seasons Hotel; take a morning yacht cruise on the sparkling harbor followed by an afternoon at leisure enjoying this magnificently beautiful port city. During your stay, you will also enjoy a privately guided tour of the city’s most interesting cultural highlights.
