DAY 2 SYDNEY CITY TOUR- Full Day
Sydney is full of incredibly beautiful ‘must see’ sights and landmarks that are scattered across this immense harbour city. On this tour you will see them all. Nestled below the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the area known as ‘The Rocks’ is the birthplace of European settlement in Australia. We visit the stunning Royal Botanic gardens with the superb views of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, pass by the Naval base of Wooloomooloo and the party area of Kings Cross before delving into further into the exclusive Eastern Suburbs (home to the cities rich and famous) & reaching the South Head at Watson's Bay.
Onto Bondi, without a doubt Sydney’s and Australia’s most famous beach. Bondi is a lively neighbourhood centred around the famous beach. Enjoy some free time to grab a coffee or take a quick swim (sea water temperature raises up to 26 degrees Celsius in February & March) or walk along the shore feeling the sand between your toes as the water rushes over your feet. Stopping for a walk & a photo at Darling harbour, we cross to the North side of the Harbour and go to see the beauty of Middle Harbour & the Northern Beaches. Elegant homes perched on hillsides over-look yachts moored out front. A little slice of paradise, home to picturesque lagoons and many of Sydney’s most beautiful & popular beaches, the area deserves a whole day unto itself to truly see it all. We will see Narrabeen, Collaroy, Dee Why & Freshwater (birthplace of Australian surfing), the ever popular Manly and enjoy a restaurant lunch. From the North Head at Manly we take in the remarkable view of the Harbour. See the cliffs of the South Head and the entrance from the Pacific Ocean known as the ‘Gap’ with the city skyline off in the distance. Tonight, dinner is at your leisure, maybe at one of the great places you've discovered today.

DAY 9 FLY MELBOURNE via GREAT OCEAN ROAD - COONAWARRA - KANGAROO ISLAND

Be witness to the magical 12 Apostles, towering, magnificent rock stacks that rise up out of the Southern Ocean. Flying via the majestic Grampians, we land at our private winery for wine tasting and a gourmet lunch. Then it's on to Kangaroo Island for our dinner & stay the night.
DAY 10 KANGAROO ISLAND TOUR- Full Day
We take a full day tour of Kangaroo Island to enjoy this most incredible & spectacular display of nature. The 18 kilometres of ocean that separates Kangaroo Island from the mainland has protected it against introduced species like foxes and rabbits that have decimated native animal and plant populations across Australia. The island is therefore a time capsule of Australia as it once was, with native animals and plants in abundance and delicate ecosystems unchanged for thousands of years. You will be utterly enthralled by KI as locals call it.

This morning we fly to amazing Adelaide, the home of Australia's best food and wine, which of course, we indulge in!

After lunch we take a city tour taking in all the highlights of this beautiful laid back city. Tonight we dine in one of Adelaide's most celebrated restaurants featuring all local produce.
