Sydney

Arrive into the iconic city of Sydney. Here you’ll find a melting pot of cultures, a seductive outdoor lifestyle, spectacular architecture and beautiful beaches. Stroll around the city and take in the impressive sights – marvel at the sheer size of the harbour bridge and walk along the water’s edge to gaze up at the curved edges of the Opera House. Glide along the harbour on your evening dinner cruise, get lost in the cobblestone cul-de-sacs of The Rocks and be sure to take time to try some of the varied restaurants and world-class cuisine.

Hunter Valley

Your gourmet trail follows the road to New South Wales’s gorgeous Hunter Valley. Treat yourself to boutique wine and gourmet food shops, and visit a handful of wineries and vineyards to sample the fine wines, particularly the fresh and fruity Semillon and rich and ripe Shiraz. Tuck into delectable cuisine at the cellar doors, soak up the sun-drenched scenery of rolling hills and sweeping vines on your Picnic Amongst the Vines experience, and watch the vivid greens turn to gold as the sun sets over the fields.

Fly to Melbourne to continue your viticulture adventure in the breathtaking Yarra Valley. Sample gourmet produce, creamy cheeses and rich chocolates, and sip on top-class wines – the pinot noir is highly recommended. Back in town, uncover Melbourne’s hidden secrets with a Lanes and Arcades Tour, exploring the city’s less touristy charms. In the evening, dine aboard one of the historical tramcars as you ride around the city – what better way to discover Melbourne’s leafy streets?

For the more adventurous, perhaps take a canoe and paddle the Margaret River, hire a bike and explore the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, ride a horse, or strap on your harness and abseil down vertigo-inducing cave chambers.
