Sydney is Australia’s largest and most populous city. Sydney is famous for its long, dazzling beaches and metropolitan charm. Though the city features many examples of classic Victorian architecture, its skyline is shaped by modern towers and marvels like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Australia’s warm climate is perfect for enjoying the scenic shoreline or embarking on adventures across the Australian outback, where visitors will find an array of exotic animals unique to the continent like koalas, kangaroos, and platypus. Sydney offers the best of the beach life in the heart of a modern metropolis, and it’s always open to visitors.

Hop aboard this 14-day trip down Australia’s east coast and make the most of the time you do have. Offering a solid mix of must-do experiences and uncommon adventures, you’ll enjoy a Pick-to-Plate lunch on an organic farm in Byron Bay, sail the Whitsundays, and trek through Mossman Gorge in the Daintree Rainforest.
