Best of Australia

19 days

Australia promises exemplary cityscapes, iconic road trips and a stellar wildlife. Beautiful is, but, a mere understatement for this land of colourful palettes that ranges from the red of the outback sands, golden of the deserts and the vividity of the coral reefs. To add to the pleasures of natural beauty, the city thrives with sophisticated cities while still hosting some wonderful indigenous communities. 

Best of Australia takes you through the popular destinations in Australia.

Cities in Australia are picturesque beauty. Sydney is a paragon with the widely famous Opera House, Harbour Bridge and wide stretched surf beaches and street cafes. Melbourne is all about art, alleyways, food and coffee. Brisbane is a subtropical town, Adelaide boasts a festive charm and Canberra is a cultural treasure box.

Food and wine is another area Australia excels at. With finely made local wines Australia has people flocking in to cater to their thirsty needs. Again, the multicultural environment in Australia plates a variety of food options from all over the world – if you are a food enthusiast, you just have to be present with your taste buds. 

Drive through the famous Great Ocean Road in Melbourne, cross the Harbour Bridge at Sydney, enjoy the festive and pubby poise of Adelaide, and walk on wide open spaces, and tree-lined avenues in Canberra. With the Best of Australia package, you will enjoy the best Australia has to offer and that in a reasonable price and a cool itinerary designed to align with all your interests in mind.
