vacation in Australia:

  • G´day! Experience the best of Sydney and Melbourne.
  • Fly to the Antipodes and visit Australian cities of Melbourne and Sydney.
  • Take a trip along the Great Ocean Road to the famous 12 Apostles. In fact, they are neither twelve nor apostles but well worth the long journey. En route you will get to see koalas in their natural habitat and with a bit of luck even a kangaroo or wallaby. Will you know the difference?
  • Or better do not rely on luck and visit an island, where you can feed kangaroos.
  • Dive into the streets of Melbourne. Small cafes and bistros seduce with tasty breakfast or afternoon coffee. How many sublime churches will you count while strolling through the city?
  • Get on kayaks and paddle down the river without leaving Melbourne city center.
  • Watch the sunset and little penguins returning from the ocean to their nests.
  • Have you heard of Ned Kelly, the most famous Australian bushranger executed in Melbourne? Would you dare to join a night tour in the bowels of a death row?
  • Take a look at the city from above, through the "eye of Melbourne" and from a glass cube that slides out of the wall at the 88th floor of Melbourne's tallest building.
  • If the weather is nice, go to the beach and try the very popular stand-up paddle boarding.
  • Discover what makes Sydney one of the best cities to live in, whether it is e.g. the perfect public transportation system, eye-pleasing architecture or those wonderful beaches.
  • Climb to the very top of Harbour Bridge and treat yourself to a breathtaking view of the Sydney Opera House. Concert, ballet, opera? Do not satisfy yourself by taking a look from outside only and enjoy one of the many world class shows.
  • On Bondi Beach watch the overachieving surfers taming the swell or let the big waves make a funny pretzel of you.
  • Explore the local sand beaches, go surfing or kayaking.
  • Enjoy short or long walks above tall cliffs and rough sea waters. You will stumble upon captivating places.
  • Listen to the legend of three sisters when taking a trip to Blue Mountains which appeal to hikers of any level with waterfalls being just around the corner.
  • If you extend your standard stay according to our itinerary by at least one extra night, you can also visit Uluru, the sandstone monolith that changes color with the changing of the light and is a sacred place for the Aboriginal people, the indigenous Australians.
  • Replenish your energy in local restaurants of different flavours or your wardrobe and electronic equipment. And when leaving Australia, file a claim for a refund of the goods and services tax.

what the itinerary can offer:

  • By default the length of your stay in both Australian cities is set to 12 days, spending 5 nights in Melbourne and 6 nights in Sydney. You can decide to prolong or shorten your stay. If you would like to see Uluru, you must extend your stay by at least one additional night.
  • Preferably visit both Sydney and Melbourne but if you like, you can also stay in one of them only.
  • Practical tips related to accommodation, transportation from/to accommodation, within cities and their surroundings, restaurants and shops, health and safety, local language and weather.
  • Detailed and very exact recommendation of places to stay, while in each city you will be able to choose from a variety of accommodation in a strategically determined location.
