DAY 1 & 2 HIGHLIGHT
Arrive in Australia
Any epic voyage begins with a travel day or two. The flight to Australia is a long one, but completely worth it.
DAY 4 HIGHLIGHT
There’s nothing quite like a morning walk along one of the world’s most spectacular urban coastlines. Sydney’s iconic eastern beachside communities are nestled between dramatic sandstone cliffs and stunning golden beaches. In the afternoon, you’ll hit Bondi Beach for a surf lesson and some beach time.
DAY 6 HIGHLIGHT
Northbound to Cairns
A morning flight will carry you to Cairns, the gateway to Queensland's tropical north. Cairns is a laid-back city best enjoyed al fresco. You’ll take an afternoon tour of downtown before a fun evening dinner.
DAY 8 & 9 HIGHLIGHT
Choose your adventure
It may be your free day, but there’s no shortage of ways to fill it. Relax by the resort pool, or if you’re craving more adventure, skydive, bungie jump, or hike your choice of rainforest. The group’s farewell dinner tonight will be hosted by a local indigenous community, where you’ll be treated to authentic cuisine and a dance performance. After that, you’ll hit the town for one last night of fun.
