Detailed Description

Bonds are made through sharing new experiences, and there are few experiences comparable with what is possible in Australia. There will be something new every day on this 13-day mother and daughter vacation. The two of you will go glamping in the outback on a four-wheel driving adventure and eat around a campfire with shooting stars illuminating the sky. Cycle through the old and the new of Sydney, with so many iconic sights all around you. Connect with Aboriginal culture, and connect with nature in Kakadu National Park, where the landscapes always take your breath away, and then snorkel around the Great Barrier Reef and sunbathe in the solitude of northern Queensland.

Each experience will softly extend your comfort zone while you are in the hands of expert local guides who love to show off their local area. So while many of the experiences seem highly adventurous, you will not be roughing it in the middle of nowhere. These are soft adventures in superlative destinations. Take Kakadu as an example, where your guide will take you on a four-wheel drive tour along bumpy, ochre-hued roads to hidden waterfalls and grand canyons, where there is nothing but nature around. You will spend the night out in nature, sleeping in stunning wooden huts that keep you away from snakes and spiders while still offering the best of the Australian wilderness with a campfire, the night’s sky, and plenty of space and time to come together as mother and daughter.

You will begin with three nights in Sydney. Check into your hotel and take some time to relax with a stroll around the city to feast your eyes on all of its charms. Wake the next day to cycle around central Sydney on a guided tour for an easy introduction to the new experiences. The next day could bring you a surfing lesson on Bondi Beach, or a climb along the arches of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Fly direct to Uluru the next day to watch the famous sunset, as the world’s grandest monolith turns orange, and then to a silhouette if the moon is glowing. Around Uluru, you will spend two days glamping in the outback with surreal landscapes setting the scene for a classically Australian adventure.

After your experience in Alice Springs, you will then fly to Darwin, where Aboriginal culture remains alive. Learn more about it before setting off on a three-day, two-night adventure in Litchfield and Kakadu National Parks. This is remote Australia, and the landscapes you find are otherworldly. You will end your adventure together with time on the coast. Fly to Cairns, take a walk down the promenade, and find a little beach to relax on. The final full day is dedicated to the Great Barrier Reef with a cruise and snorkeling experience in perhaps the world’s greatest work of nature. Cairns is a relaxed little town on the coast and a good place to kick back after your outback adventure.
