We have come up with what we think is the perfect Aussie holiday. Other travel companies will offer barmy prices for a 2 week holiday in Australia, when infact the itinerary includes flights and a few nights in each major city. What’s the point! Why would you fly 24 hours to see cities, of which many are not worth visiting at all. It is beyond the cities that make Australia so appealing. If you cut cost too much you will have a very dull trip. Far better to spend that little bit more and really get value and lifelong experiences from your Aussie holiday.
Here we go then for the BEST 15 DAY HOLIDAY IN AUSTRALIA for the first time visitor.
Day1 Arrive Sydney and stay 3 nights in a perfectly good and well located hotel. On your first afternoon take a stroll to the Opera House, have coffee at Circular Quay and watch the comings and goings of this fabulous small but perfect;y formed city.
Day2 Take an early morning cycle tour of Sydney itself, then get the ferry to Manly and enjoy the fabulous beach and have lunch on the promenade. Head back in the early evening and take a sunset cruise around Sydney Harbour.
Day 3 You’ve gotta climb that bridge, it just has to be done and is great fun.
Day 4 Pick up a car and head off to the Blue Mountains, a simply spectacular place to visit and only 3 hours from Sydney. Stay the night here.
Day 5-9 Continue your journey by car down the spectacular East Coast to Melbourne with overnight stops en-route. Stay in small B&Bs or boutique hotels and meet real Aussies. This is a stunning drive and very underrated.
Day 10-14 After a night in Melbourne continue by car along the spectacular Great Ocean Road, cutting in towards the Grampian Mountain Range and ending in Adelaide (after a visit to one, OK 2 or more of Australia’s fine wineries just before). Your last night in Adelaide which is lovely little city.
Day 15 OK we have gone over the fortnight by a day! If you have time in the morning go on a Dolphin Watch Cruise and swim. What a finish.
