Australia is one of the most remote countries in the world. Flights to get there are long. Because of this, you might find it ironic that this distant land is one the most popular places to visit for backpackers, outdoor enthusiasts, and chic travelers.

Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. With an area of 7,617,930 square kilometres, Australia is the largest country by area in Oceania and the world’s sixth-largest country. Australia is the oldest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent with the least fertile soils. It is a megadiverse country, and its size gives it a wide variety of landscapes and climates, with deserts in the center, tropical rainforests in the north-east, and mountain ranges in the south-east.

Beach Lifestyle in Sydney

Sydney’s beaches are world famous, and thanks to the mild climate, you can enjoy them year-round.

Dining In Sydney

Sydney’s enviable reputation as a world-class dining destination is built on talented chefs using the freshest local produce and seafood caught daily in the Pacific Ocean.

Each year The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide reviews restaurants and awards one, two or three chef’s hats to the best – it’s similar to Michelin stars. Three hats is the top award.

Adelaide, Australia – The City

In 1836, Colonel William Light designated the Adelaide Plains as the capital of the new British colony. This area, already home to the Kaurna Aboriginal people for thousands of years, was known as Tarndanyangga, or the place of the red kangaroo. This historical site quickly evolved into Adelaide, celebrated today as one of the most culturally diverse cities globally.

Named after the wife of King George IV of the United Kingdom, Adelaide expanded towards the seashore, now adorned with tranquil beach suburbs. The city’s culinary and beverage reputation benefits from successive waves of immigrants—from Germans and Italians to Lebanese and Japanese. German immigrants, in particular, brought wine-making skills that have positioned Adelaide as a leading wine-producing center in Australia.

Adelaide’s 19th-century city center, near the Torrens River, remains well-preserved, giving visitors a sense of the colony’s early days. This area features a network of wide, elegant streets surrounded by parks, enhancing the city’s open and green atmosphere. Adelaide’s appeal is further magnified by South Australia’s clear blue skies and mild climate, making it one of the most beautiful cities in Australia.

Day 1 – Fly Into Syndey

Surprisingly, Sydney is a small city and it will be easy to get your bearings even if you’re feeling a little jet-lagged. After a private transfer from the airport to the hotel, enjoy the day strolling through the city.

Take a walk to postcard sights like the Sydney Opera House, Circular Quays, through The Rocks to the waterfront restaurants at Darling Harbour. Enjoy dinner at Quay. Not only is it the most awarded restaurant in Sydney, it has the best harbor views. Then, travel back by public ferry, passing under Sydney Harbour Bridge at night.

Day 2

The Sydney Harbour Bridge calls adventure seekers from around the world. This morning, you can join them. Celebrate the bridge’s 90th birthday, by climbing the iconic arches.

In the afternoon, head east to visit Australia’s most famous surf destination, Bondi Beach. You’ll find an entire village full of cafés, restaurants, and shops. Be sure to take a plunge in the Bondi Icebergs Pool. This historical pool is open to the public. It features both lap and kiddie pools filled with sea water. Please note: The pools are closed on Thursdays for cleaning.

Day 3

Drive two hours outside of Sydney, and you’ll be in the bush. Rugged mountain peaks climb above eucalyptus-lined valleys. These are the UNESCO World Heritage Blue Mountains. Nestled in the wilderness lie charming mountain towns and ancient Aboriginal artwork.

Visit Scenic World and ride on the iconic skyway. Descend into Jamison Valley on the world’s steepest train. Glide on the Cableway past Three Sisters Rock. Stroll beneath an ancient rainforest.

On your way back to the hotel, stop at a local restaurant and enjoy talking with the locals.

Day 4

Check out of your hotel and fly to Kangaroo Island. When you land on the island, check in to your hotel and begin koala and wallaby hunting. It feels like a treasure hunt. Scan the eucalyptus trees for the koalas. Clinging to the branches with sleepy eyes, koalas move only a few branches each day.

Day 5

A full day safari is on today’s schedule. Riding around on a four-wheel drive, you will go to Finder’s Chase National Park and Seal Bay National Park. Have your camera at the ready because you will likely see kangaroo, wallaby, platypus and seal.

Day 6

The morning is at your leisure to continue spotting wildlife. Around noon, head to Adelaide. It is a relaxed city on the coast, famous for its beaches and laid-back atmosphere. Spend the afternoon on the sand, dipping your toes into the cool ocean water. In the evening, enjoy a stroll and eat at a local restaurant.

Day 7

You’re up early today to catch a flight to Port Douglas and arrive midday. Spend the remainder of the day exploring the town.

As evening approaches, hike the Flagstaff Hill Trail. On a clear day, you will be able to see all the way to the Low Isles. It is the perfect place to take in a sunset.

Day 8

Before Port Douglas was a town, it was home to the Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal People. Take a full day to discover their culture and heritage. Participate in a smoking ceremony, where the smoke from a fire welcomes you to the country. Explore the Daintree Forest where the aboriginal peo ple found their food and medicine. Have a go at a boomerang or spear throwing. You can even enjoy bush tucker, their food.

In the evening, catch a luxury catamaran for a sunset sail and watch as the sun fades behind the mountains and Daintree Forest.

Day 9

Cruise to the Great Barrier Reef’s outside reef. Here the coral and sea life are better protected from storms and human impact. It will be a day filled with wonder.

Your boat will anchor above the reef and will be your “home base” for the day. Spending the day snorkeling and scuba diving, you may see grouper, reef sharks, and a myriad of colorful fish. If you don’t want to get wet, enjoy a ride in a submersible craft and roam the Great Barrier Reef in style.

For dinner, eat at Melaleuca, the best restaurant in town. Be sure to order the signature dessert platter which can be shared by your entire group.

Day 10

Arrange for a late check out and head to the beach. A swim will help you expend energy before boarding a plane to head home. Drive to Cairns late in the day for your evening departure.
