Sydney

Australia 's largest city is, of course, home to the world-famous Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge - but it has much more to offer. Why not enjoy a harbour cruise, climb the magnificent Harbour Bridge , visit the Taronga Zoo ( Australia 's leading zoolgoical garden), take a walk through The Royal Botanical Gardens or just relax on the beach suburbs of Bondi, Coogee and Manly. With its vibrant nightlife at Oxford Street and Kings Cross, its harbour islands, its shopping, arts and music, Sydney will satisfy any visitor.


Blue Mountains National Park

The Blue Mountains National Park is just a couple of hours' drive west of Sydney. Here, you will discover the breathtaking scenery unchanged since dinosaurs walked the earth. Walk in dense forests, swim in crystal clear pools, and don’t forget your camera for the amazing cliff-top views! It’s ideal for walkers and those who appreciate nature in all its rugged glory. For either a day trip or a longer stay, this really is the Australian countryside at its best.


Byron Bay

Australia ’s most easterly point is an area of great beaches and rainforest hinterland to satisfy the explorer in every visitor. Cape Byron ’s rugged cliffs and lighthouse make a great day-trip, and from here you can access the panoramic coastal tracks of Arakwal National Park . Nature reserves abound in this region, with the hinterland offering forest and rolling farmland which produces much of Australia ’s fruit and nuts.


Broken Hill

Known as ‘The Silver City’, Broken Hill is a working mining town, and is extremely popular with artists, film-makers and of course tourists! During your stay you will get an insight into authentic Outback life, with its colonial mansions, pubs and even a Flying Doctor station. Surrounding the town are some fascinating Outback national parks, such as Mootwingee National Park where you can see ancient rock art, or Kinchega National Park with its dunes and rich bird life.
