DAY 1: SYDNEY - WELCOME
A warm welcome to Australia as you are met by your pilot on arrival. You’ll have time to relax before meeting for afternoon drinks and later dine on the stunning waters of Sydney Harbour with a dinner cruise to discuss your amazing adventure ahead.
DAY 2: HOBART
This morning we make our way to Hobart, capital of Australia’s island state, Tasmania. At its fashionable Salamanca Place, old sandstone warehouses host galleries, markets and cafes. Nearby is Battery Point, a historic district with narrow lanes and colonial-era cottages. The city’s backdrop is Mount Wellington, with sweeping views, plus hiking and cycling trails.
DAY 3-4: COLES BAY & FREYCINET
The sunsets are golden, there is a lot to do. Take an award winning eco-cruise of the world famous Wineglass Bay. Have a leisurely walk in Freycinet National Park. Go for a paddle with a guided sea kayaking tour around the Bay. Or if you want to chill out, relax and read a book.
DAY 5: STRAHAN
Today we make our way to Strahan, set on the edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Take a boat cruise to provide an unforgettable journey into the pristine temperate rainforests of the Gordon River. You can take a half-day journey into the wilderness or a full-day journey to Queenstown and back. Or you could ride a bike around Strahan and explore the artisan shops and eateries serving up delicious local produce.
DAY 6: KING ISLAND
With fresh produce front and centre, sampling the island’s famous cheese and dairy products, seafood, beef, honey, fruit and veggies at a farm gate or eatery is simply not to be missed. King Island is also home to two 18 hole world-class golf courses and sees golfers fly in from all over the world to play at either Ocean Dunes or Cape Wickham. If you enjoy surfing, you can hire a board and head to Martha Lavina beach and catch a break. Or if horses are more your thing, ride a horse on an empty, sandy beach and learn more about King Island on a trail ride.
DAY 7-8: MELBOURNE
With so much on offer, Melbourne’s intoxicating charm has something for everyone. Delve into the cosmopolitan sophistication and natural beauty of Victoria’s capital city. From vibrant lane-ways, arcades and shopping to award winning wineries, beautiful countryside and rugged coastlines.
DAY 9-11: ADELAIDE / KANGAROO ISLAND
Kangaroo Island is famous for its abundant wildlife species and natural beauty. Rich in history, culture and cuisine, see kangaroos and koalas, walk among sea lions on pristine white-sand beaches, dive historic wrecks. The passions of art communities, wine growers and artisan food producers help complete this extraordinary South Australian off-shore escape.
DAY 12-13: FLINDERS RANGES
Rugged mountain ranges, dramatic gorges and abundant wildlife are just the beginning of what awaits you at the Flinders Ranges. Watch the sun rise at Razorback Lookout Bunyeroo Valley, visit the gigantic natural amphitheater of Wilpena Pound and perch yourself on a cliff-top and feast your eyes on the sunset views.
