Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

In the southern half of Australia the seasons are the opposite of those in the northern hemisphere: spring comes in September, summer is from December to February, autumn runs from March to May, and winter begins in June.

Sydney is great to visit year round but if you want warm sun and dry weather it is best to try between November and April. Their winter months of May - October usually have mild weather so you can still enjoy all the sights.  April through November is the best time to visit the Great Barrier Reef, although southeast trade winds can sometimes make it a tad choppy at sea. December through March can be uncomfortably hot and humid, particularly as far north. In the winter months (June-Aug), the water can be a touch chilly (Aussies think so, anyway), but it rarely drops below 22°C.

Itinerary

Explore Australia’s extraordinary scenery with this itinerary that takes you on a journey to some awe-inspiring must-visit locations. From the cosmopolitan city of Sydney to the dramatic desert landscape of the red center and the azure-blue water of the Great Barrier Reef – this itinerary showcases the very best of Australia’s classic hotspots.

  1. Days 1-4: Sydney

    Begin your journey in Sydney, Australia’s most cosmopolitan city. Offering a wealth of experiences and accommodation options to suit every budget, Sydney showcases the very best of Australia’s diversity. Adrenalin junkies will revel in the chance to climb the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge or if you prefer to be on solid ground why not stroll in the beautiful Botanic Gardens. Spend your time in Sydney exploring the harbor on a luxury gourmet cruise or take to the beaches of Bondi and enjoy an iconic surfing lesson. During your time in Sydney we have included a private half day tour. Head out with your local guide and learn about the history of the Rocks District, discover empty bays and beaches, and visit the world-famous Sydney Opera House.

    Accommodation: Park Hyatt Sydney (3 nights)

  2. Days 4-6: Uluru

    Next, venture in the expansive desert plains of the outback.  Walk in the footsteps of the first pioneers as you travel to Uluru – the monolithic rock also known as Ayers Rock. Here, learn about Aboriginal history and join a guided Aboriginal walking trek around the base of Uluru or opt to soar high above this magnificent geological formation on a scenic flight.

    During your time at Uluru you will enjoy a remarkable al-fresco dinner which is included in the cost of your accommodation. Under the cover of darkness with a blanket of stars above you, enjoy a three course al-fresco feast as you are serenaded by traditional didgeridoo – a truly unique experience and one that will humble all that partake.

    Accommodation: Longitude 131 (2 nights)

  3. Days 6-9: Daintree National Park

    From the ochre earth and enormous skies of the Red Center travel to Queensland, home to two of Australia’s greatest natural wonders – the Great Barrier Reef and the oldest rainforest in the world, the Daintree.

    Explore this ancient rainforest as part of your included privately guided tour where you can marvel at the huge array of wildlife and partake in an Aboriginal led river cruise along the Daintree River. You may also opt to travel through the Tropical North Queensland rainforest on the Kuranda scenic railway from Cairns or simply relax in your luxury Daintree based accommodation.

    With natural spa pools, a huge array of endemic wildlife and a vast Aboriginal history, the Daintree offers a relaxing respite from the sandy desert of the red center.

    Accommodation: Thala Beach Nature Reserve (3 nights)

  4. Days 9-13: Whitsunday Islands

    The final element to your spectacular adventure will be a stay amidst the emerald islands and jewel colored reefs of the Great Barrier Reef at Hamilton Island. Spend your days swimming in the crystal-clear reef or heading out on snorkeling adventures to outer islands. Visit Whitehaven Beach and enjoy learning how to sail or take a boat out for the weekend. Hamilton Island defines the true Australian island experience.
