Sydney

Welcome to Sydney, one of the most photogenic cities in the world. Take a stroll around Circular Quay and soak up the views of Sydney Harbour including the shining white sails of the Opera House and the huge steel arch of the Harbour Bridge. If you’re feeling brave, perhaps sign up for a Bridge Climb, where you’ll walk above the roaring traffic to the top of the bridge (with a harness of course) for fabulous harbour and opera house views, as well as a unique perspective on the rest of the city.

Hunter Valley

Leave Sydney behind and enter the sun-drenched countryside of the lush Hunter Valley, where you’ll call in at a vineyard or two and taste the local wines. The Hunter Valley is known for its Semillon and Shiraz, but try a few different grape varieties and vintages and find your favourite tipple. It’s not just wine that’s on offer – you can also gorge your way through craft beers, decadent chocolates, cheeses, olives and olive oils.

Blue Mountains

Admire the rugged landscapes of the Blue Mountains, watch the indigo-hued mist emanate from the eucalyptus forests and discover what gave these dramatic peaks their name. Park yourself in one of the various lookout points for fabulous views – try Echo Point in Katoomba where you’ll be able to see the Three Sisters and all the way down the Jamison Valley. If you’re feeling more energetic, take a hike along the various walking trails or hire a mountain bike. And don’t forget to try out the tea and cakes in one of the quaint local cafes.
