Detailed Description

Australia is a country that is filled with friendly natives, amazing wildlife, natural scenery to explore, and nearly endless outdoor adventures to embark upon, making this country one of the most diverse in the world. Australia promises you a once-in-a-lifetime adventure with thrilling and adrenaline-pumping activities that will make for memories that will last forever.

Throughout this luxurious, 9-day excursion, you will be rooted in the cosmopolitan city of Sydney, which will act as the perfect respite from your outdoor excursions that will have you reconnecting with mother nature. Upon your arrival in Sydney, you will waste no time in flying into your first Australian adventure. As the first evening’s sun sets over Sydney, you will board a helicopter for a remarkable ride over the city skyline. While you hover over Sydney Harbour and watch the pastel colors of the sky fade behind the horizon, you will know for certain that the decision to make Sydney your vacation destination was the best choice.

On your first full day in Australia, you will wake up at dawn to a very exclusive experience as you climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Imagine the story that you will tell your friends at home as you watch the sunrise over Sydney at one of its most revered locations. You will then be immersed in the city on a private walking tour of many of its most iconic sights, including the eclectic boroughs that make it such a diverse and fascinating multi-cultural locale. You will end the day with an adrenaline-pumping skydive over Wollongong Beach that will really get your heart pumping. Do not worry if this frightens you because this is a completely optional opportunity.

The following day, you will journey into the Blue Mountains, where you will spend a day on a hike in Blue Mountain National Park. Your hike will also include stops at world-famous spots like the Three Sisters and Echo Point. The next day will be a day of discovery as you embark on a 4WD safari that will provide you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in Australia’s wildlife. After a short ride to Royal National Park, you will spend day five hiking to the Figure 8 Pools, which are a must-see for any adventurer who is traveling to Australia. A thrilling kayak adventure will follow, which will have you paddling amid the beauty of the majestic Berowra Valley.

The following day, you will enjoy a unique tour of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, where you will be able to admire many of its spectacular views. Port Stephens will beckon to you on your final full day, and here, you can explore on an exciting 4WD tour that will lead you off the beaten path.

Throughout this entire Australian getaway, you will stay in luxurious accommodations, and a private driver will deliver you to and from each destination. This trip is entirely customizable, so you can adjust anything and everything to better suit your mood and desires once you are in Sydney.
