Detailed Description

Untamed and wild are two words that are often associated with the mesmerizing nation of Australia, and indeed, they are excellent adjectives to describe the vast outback and all of the amazing out-of-the-box adventures that await visitors who arrive at its doorstep. There is also a refined and metropolitan side to Australia, especially in its most famous city of Sydney, which is where this luxurious, 10-day adventure will lead you. In addition to exploring Sydney, you will indulge in visits to its surrounding areas that are equally epic.

This handcrafted tour has been customized with your specific desire in mind, so it includes only the most prestigious excursions and elite adventures that promise to thrill, pamper, and please you to no end. The cosmopolitan melting pot of Sydney will be your base for this blissful vacation, and you will spend your days embarking on the most outstanding and incredible day trips that you can imagine. By the end, you will see that Australia more than lives up to its reputation of existing beyond comparison.

Your first day will find you arriving in Sydney before being whisked away to your luxury accommodation, where you will have a bit of time to settle in before your evening’s excursion. Tonight, you will partake in a sunset cruise around Sydney Harbour on a private yacht. After witnessing one of the most beautiful sunsets, you will wake to a morning adventure that will send your heart soaring. Specifically, you will board a hot air balloon and fly high over Sydney Harbour, which will provide you with the exclusive chance to witness the beauty of this vast body of water from an entirely new view. After landing, a private tour of Sydney’s best sights will be waiting for you before you culminate the evening with a private cooking class that will be taught by a master chef.

The following day, you will escape to the idyllic Blue Mountains, where you will witness the famed landmarks like the Three Sisters and Echo Point. On your return to Sydney, you will also be able to stop and explore the mesmerizing underground world of the Jenolan Caves. The following day will find you returning to the gorgeous area as you venture to Empress Canyon, where you will canyon to your heart’s content on an outdoor excursion of canyoning in the great outdoors.

A 4WD safari is how you will spend the following day. During your safari, you will be introduced to native wildlife in their natural habitats in off-the-beaten-path locales that others may never be able to witness. Upon your return to the city this evening, you will indulge in a live performance at the iconic Sydney Opera House. Afterward, a road trip will lead you along the stunning South Coast of New South Wales, where you can relax and soak in the gorgeous scenery en route to some of the area’s most famed sights. A world of wine and amazing wineries will fill your day seven, and after arriving in the iconic Hunter Valley via helicopter, your day will only get more delicious and unforgettable.

The next day will have you being whisked away to Australia’s capital of Canberra, where you will be introduced to its most famed sights on a comprehensive tour of the city. Your final full day in Australia will be spent on an exciting boat excursion that will lead you to the Cowan Creek.
