You will transcend cityscapes to connect with surreal landscapes during your 13-day Australia adventure tour of the untamed Outback. As the full moon shines over the northern sea, you will witness the natural phenomenon of the Staircase to the Moon and explore the dramatic scenery with local Aboriginal guides. Wander through waterways on a billabong cruise, ride a camel along Cable Beach, and experience the remote treasures of Australia.
Sydney – Arrive in Australia
Arrive in Sydney early in the morning with the sunlight glistening on the ocean. Sydney is known for its moderate climate making it a perfect destination no matter the time of year. Take advantage of an early check-in at your hotel and explore the stunning city of Sydney.
Stroll through Darling Harbour, a lovely walkable area on the waterfront boasting museums, gardens, restaurants, and a carousel. It is also the departure point for all harbor cruises. Hop on a cruise that will take you around Sydney Harbour and its surroundings. The ocean air blows over the bow of the ship as the carousel’s music fades in the distance. The sails of the Sydney Opera House point into the sky and mix with the sailboats floating around the esplanade. The bare frame of the Harbour Bridge holds fast above the sea. Homes pepper the shoreline through the trees as fishing trawlers make their way to the docks.
Watch the daylight fade behind Sydney’s skyline as you make your way to Doyles Beach to enjoy fresh, delicious seafood. The water taxi will ferry you to the beautiful seaside restaurant where you are promised a view of Sydney’s remaining sunset.

Experience the spectacular phenomena of Australia’s Outback on this 13-day tour starting in Australia’s northwest city of Broome (after a stay in Sydney). Located next to pristine beaches and rocky hills, the city offers the history of a seaside-mining town with surroundings that make the city almost unattainable to outsiders. Flying over the Kimberly Region gives you the rich green of the trees and the rush of watching Kimberly’s incredible scenery unfold beneath you. With sweeping mountains, whitewater rapids, and a massive gorge, northwestern Australia gives you the serene beauty that few people ever experience.
Traveling to northern Australia takes you to Darwin, Australia’s most northern city comprising the culture of its surroundings in its architecture, museums, and history. Darwin gives you access to Australia’s north in and out of the city. Depart from Darwin and fly deep into the stunning remote area of Arnhemland; the wild terrain of Australia comes alive, along with the cultural connection of Aborigines to the land. With local fishing traditions, this area of Australia gives you the heart of the region’s history, on cave walls and in your guide’s oratory.
This tour of Australia is rich in Australian culture; it is a basket full of panoramas, lively wildlife, colorful locals, and unique topography. Whether the wet or dry season, the hum of didgeridoos fills the moonlit air, the moon sparkles along the dark water, and the rainbow serpent painting pops out of the cave wall. This trip offers the heart of an Australia everyone wished they could see, but few ever will.
