THE SYDNEY SIGHTS
The first part of your Australian trilogy begins in Sydney, where you'll revel in the excitement and vitality of this action-packed city. Often travelers fly through Sydney in a mad dash and miss out on the sights, sounds, and tastes of the capital of New South Wales. Give it the attention it deserves with three days spent scaling the Sydney Harbour Bridge, sailing along the coast in a chartered yacht, and stopping by cultural delights like Australia's first church and the famous Opera House. Each night you'll relax in Sydney's historic Rocks district at the Langham. With just enough time shared with first-class guides and plenty left to explore on your own, you'll feel quite at home in the Harbour City.
Days 4, 5, 6, 7
THE BEACHES OF BYRON
ELEMENTS OF BYRON
Byron Bay is a famous Australian destination in its own right, and for good reason. This coastal beach town is known for epic surf breaks and beautiful scuba and dive spots. And while it's a hit with tourists, there is only one world-class beachfront resort—Elements of Byron. Spend the next four nights here at the ultimate beach-side base camp, filling your days with micro-adventures launched right from the front door. Ride horses along the beach, snorkel around Julian Rocks Marine Reserve, photograph 330-foot Minyon Falls, and of course, surf to your heart's content, no matter your level of experience.
