From the cosmopolitan city of Sydney to the stark desert surrounds of the Red Centre and on to the kaleidoscopic wonders of the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland – this two-week trip is ideal for first-time visitors and takes in Australia’s biggest and most iconic sights.
Glorious Sydney – 4 Days
Where better to start your big adventure? Explore with ease from your central base not far from the historic Rocks District where you can enjoy stunning views across the harbour to the iconic landmarks of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge – don’t miss taking a scenic harbour cruise to see the iconic landmarks from a different perspective. While in Sydney, sample its famous beaches – perhaps head to Bondi Beach for the peoplewatching or soak up the laid-back atmosphere of Manly. You’ll have plenty of time to explore the surrounding region – from a day trip to the breathtaking Blue Mountains World Heritage site to visiting the Hunter Valley wine region for a day of fantastic wine and local cuisine. Chat to our Consultants for more ideas if you want them, we’ve got plenty!
Magical Outback – 3 Days
After your pre-arranged no-hassle flight from Sydney to Uluru you’ll find yourself in the spiritual and isolated Outback. The sacred indigenous site of Uluru is one of Australia’s icons and upon arrival you’ll be left truly breathless. Spend time enjoying the magic of this huge monolith – walk around the base of Uluru with an indigenous guide and learn about their traditions and culture or take a sunset camel ride. After a day exploring, it’s time for dinner under the Outback sky. A feast for the senses, the Sounds of Silence dinner serves delectable cuisine accompanied by Australian wine, all underneath a blanket of stars with Uluru standing in the distance – truly magical.
Port Douglas – 5 Days
With flights and transfers already organised for you by your Flight Centre Consultant it’s on to Cairns – the gateway to two of Australia’s World Heritage sites: the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. Stay in the small seaside town of Port Douglas and relax into life in the tropics – soak up the sun on the sparkling Four Mile Beach and tuck into fresh seafood. Exploring the Great Barrier Reef is a must, we can arrange a tour to get up close to an incredible array of underwater life. Whether it’s snorkelling, diving or seeing the reef from a glass-bottomed boat – experience it all on an incredible day out. With five days to enjoy Australia’s Tropical North, you’ll also have plenty of time to discover the treasures of the Daintree Rainforest. From spectacular gorges and waterfalls to great walking trails – explore the world’s oldest rainforest before heading back to blighty with memories and a holiday album to cherish forever.

They’ll inspire, plan and book your travels, ultimately crafting the perfect itinerary for you – taking the stress away. They are reallife, flesh and bones, people – not chat bots.
