Tour Highlights

The Great Ocean Road: This road is a 151 mile stretch of outrageously beautiful path that is said  to be one of the best road trips in the world.

Queen Victoria Market: This market provides the best and most atmospheric shopping experience in Melbourne. It has been a main point of interest the city’s culture for more than a century!

Shrine of Remembrance: A beautiful memorial that is well worth the visit. From the top of its steps you can catch a spectacular view of Melbourne and learn all there is about this fantastic place.

Sydney Opera House: This world famous building is spectacular from all angles. See some amazing shows during an unforgettable experience.

Blue Mountains: The Blue Mountains make for one of the best and most popular day trips from Sydney. We will see the Three Sisters rock formation from Echo Point lookout.

Kings Cross: One of the best nights out you will have in your life! This place is home to some of the best bars in the city. It can get a little wild, so keep your wits about you.

Learn to surf at Bondi Beach: Why wouldn’t you?! Surfing is as much a part of Aussie culture as beers and BBQs. There isn’t a better place to learn than on the country’s most famous beach.
