Detailed Description

Australia is a remarkable country that can be characterized in many ways, but it is also a destination that can never be placed in a box of one-word descriptions. This is because the country is so vast and diverse in what it offers visitors, and each region of Australia possesses something mystical, unique, and unmatched when compared to the rest of the world. Even the people who inhabit this intriguing nation are unlike any other nationality. Friendly, gregarious, easy-going, and welcoming to all, Australians, like Australia itself, will welcome you with open arms to experience all that is great and wonderful about this land down under.

As you embark on this luxurious, 7-day adventure, you will be provided with the features that only the most elite excursions and spectacular scenery possess. Your adventure will begin with your arrival in Sydney, which is a remarkable city that will serve as your base for your exciting Australian adventure. Here, you will spend your first evening enjoying a relaxing dinner cruise around Sydney Harbour. There is no better way to witness this seaside city than beneath the glow of a pastel sky that has just been lit ablaze with the descending sun. While you enjoy a gourmet feast and glide peacefully over the harbor’s peaceful waters, you will sense the stress from your everyday as it fades away and is replaced with nothing but relaxation.

Your first full day will find you exploring the city’s highlights on a private tour, where you will witness what a diverse and delightful city Sydney is. After marveling at the spectacular sights on the ground, an exhilarating helicopter ride will offer you a bird’s eye view of Sydney, providing you with an entirely new perspective of the gorgeous city.

The capital of Canberra will beckon you to come and explore its plethora of delights on a full day’s tour. After returning to Sydney, you will venture to the outskirts of town, leaving the cosmopolitan world and crowds behind as you are led into the wilds of Australia. Here, you will make friends with some special locals, which will be the nation’s famous wild kangaroos.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience of witnessing a live performance at the Sydney Opera House will provide you with the culture and elite experience that will perfectly balance your vacation.
