While you’re here, you’ll climb the famous arch of Sydney Harbour Bridge. At the top, you’ll be a hair-raising 134 metres above the water, giving you far-reaching views across Sydney Harbour and the Opera House too. Once you’ve soaked up the city’s attractions, don’t miss a trip down to the world-famous Bondi Beach, where you can watch the surfers splashing about in the waves or, if you’re feeling brave, join them.

4* Parkroyal Darling Harbour

Days 6-12

Your exact itinerary will depend upon the weather and time of year, but highlights include cheese making, kayaking in Bathurst Harbour, hiking in Freycinet National Park and Wineglass Bay, looking for wallabies, kangaroos and wombats in Maria Island National Park, admiring the sea stacks in Tasman National Park (where you might also spot dolphins and albatross) and touring the World Heritage Site and former penal colony at Port Arthur.

7 nights on board the Coral Discoverer

Days 13-14

A very cool place, Melbourne is often voted as one of the most liveable cities in the world, and it’s easy to see why. Home to a number of museums and galleries, with a lively bar and restaurant scene, there’s plenty to see and do – and if you’re into sports, then Melbourne is the ideal spot to catch an Aussie rules football game.
