Itinerary

The below itinerary can change due to cultural reasons, seasonal changes, operational logistics and accessibility.

Day 1

Pick Up Sydney Accommodation

Crescent Head

Set the tone for this fair dinkum (i.e. authentic) Aussie adventure by crossing Sydney's iconic Harbour Bridge as we venture toward the surfing haven of Crescent Head. Before testing the waters, dip your toes into an oak barrel (literally) in the Hunter Valley.

Day 2

+

Byron Bay

Try a barrel of a different kind with an early morning private surf lesson on one of the best beaches in the world. Here's your chance to become a bona fide surf master. Our road trip continues with a traditional BBQ lunch and a cruise past the Big Banana icon before pulling into Byron Bay - where you can burn incense, sip chai and become a yoga teacher all in one day.

Day 3

+

Byron Bay

Anti-McDonald's and anti-anything mass produced (but pro juice bars, beer gardens and beards), Byron is glitzy on the outside but small town-hearted underneath. Hit the shops, test out those newly acquired surfing skills, paddle a sea kayak, or watch whales breach from the Lighthouse in winter. This is the town where peace and tranquillity go to relax. You should too. Or jump out of a plane. Byron doesn't care as long as you're happy.

Day 4

+

Gold Coast

Leave the blissful buzz of Byron behind you as we head to Springbrook National Park and its major landmark, Natural Bridge. Next, swap the national park for a theme park as we make our way to party central, aka Surfers Paradise.

Day 5

+

Fraser Island

Next stop: BrisVegas (aka Brisbane). Don't let its namesake fool you - there are no late-night wedding chapels in the sunshine state capital. Get your bearings on a walking tour of the city centre, before burning up the highway to catch a ferry bound for Fraser - the island with the longest beach in Queensland. (75 Miles - 120kms).

Day 6

+

Fraser Island

Fraser is literally one huge pile of sand - as if someone dropped the Sahara Desert into the Pacific Ocean and scattered it with dingoes and rainforests. Four-wheel-drive along the beach highway to mingle with the Pinnacles Coloured Sands (considered a place of good luck for the Indigenous Butchulla women), Eli Creek and the Maheno Shipwreck before testing out your stand up paddling skills on the crystal clear waters of Lake McKenzie.

Day 7

+

Myella Farm

This afternoon enjoy an authentic outback experience at a 2,500-acre cattle station. Embrace your inner cowboy and prepare yourself for an adventure-packed afternoon of horse riding, motor biking and cow milking. Or go walkabout on a real Aussie farm to find that right spot for the perfect outback sunset. Enjoy a hearty home cooked farm style dinner before you take to whip cracking and lassoing.

Day 8

+

Emu Park

Trade the bush for the beach via Rockhampton, the beef capital of Australia. Take a selfie as you pass by the Tropic of Capricorn. Take to the life of a cowboy like a horse to oats with an adventure-packed morning of horse riding and motor biking. Or get your boots dirty, milk your first cow, or go walkabout on a real Aussie farm. Then leave the campfire to follow in the footsteps of Captain Cook as we head back to the coast for Emu Park. Enjoy the Aboriginal experience where you get to learn about totems and artefacts, see some traditional dancing, try your hand at boomerang throwing and make some artwork to take home.

Day 9

+

The Whitsundays

Feeling like you need more air in your hair? Leave the bus and board your own private yacht for our overnight sailing trip in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands. Normally a toy for the rich and famous, today it's all yours to learn the ropes while sailing in paradise. More of a land-lover? Take the diva option and let the crew do the work whilst you feast, swim and snorkel.

Day 10

+

Daydream Island

Did someone say buffet breakfast? (Over) indulge, recharge and relax with water sports, beach volleyball and fish feeding right off the jetty. Appropriately named, Daydream Island has walking tracks, palm trees and secluded beaches. In keeping with tradition, a looong list of activities has been provided ranging from watersports to mini golf and tennis. Grab a cocktail from the swim up pool bar then make a date with a hammock and get in your happy place overlooking the pools.

Day 11

+

Daydream Island

Another chance for a fun filled day at your own leisure, here at Daydream Island.

Day 12

+

Cairns

Today we pull into Cairns - gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. You'll soon forget you're not on a yacht anymore. The night is yours, so take a stroll along the esplanade, join a free zumba class, or jump straight into the hedonistic delights of Cairns' backpacker bars.

Day 13

+

Cairns

Just like a double-shot macchiato in the morning, two days in Cairns will get your heart started. Find yourself paddling the rapids of the Tully River, zip lining over a crocodile or getting an aerial view of the tropics by plummeting towards it. Save time for a snorkeling or scuba trip to the Great Barrier Reef and take home that elusive selfie with a photobombing fish.

Day 14

+

Cairns

Want another day to explore the only place in the world nestled between two World Heritage areas? Go on then. Ramp up the adventure metre with hot air ballooning, horse riding, bungee jumping and all those things you didn't do yesterday. Or just kick back with a coconut. (B)

Day 15

+

Alice Springs

Make your own way (by plane) and take to the skies heading South West to meet up with your NT crew in Alice Springs.

Day 16

+

Uluru

We're hitting the red ground running as we pull into Yulara. It's off to the breathtaking Uluru in the afternoon for a guided tour, and a glass of bubbles as the glow of sunset morphs through 50 shades of red, providing a rockin' live show. Tonight hone your Aussie BBQ skills and cook your own steak (or vege burger). Welcome to the outback, mate.

Day 17

+

Uluru

Start your day with a big bowl of 'oh my god' thanks to a breathtaking sunrise back at Uluru. Follow in the footsteps of the traditional owners of this sacred World Heritage site with a full base walk, where you can escape the crowds and check out hidden waterholes. Keep watch for wedge-tailed eagles, spinifex hopping mice and thorny devils. Or splurge on a Harley ride or scenic flight and see the original Top of the Rock. Later, join a meditative dot painting class in the Aboriginal Art Markets and give yourself a free astrology lesson, stargazing at the endless Southern night sky.

Day 18

+

Kings Canyon

Get ready for some soul searching as we venture into the heart of sacred Kata-Tjuta (The Olgas) and walk amongst the 36 red sandstone giants through the Valley of the Winds. After a Dreamtime archeology lesson, and a drive into Watarrka National Park, live the life of a jolly swagman as we sleep under the stars in custom swags. Cue campfire stories and marshmallows tonight.

Day 19

+

Alice Springs

If you would walk 500 miles (steps), then you'll make it through the toughest part of the Rim Walk - Heart Attack Hill. The Kings Canyon Rim Walk is the real deal and the most famous canyon in Oz. Think age-old cycads, eroded dome shapes, a visit to The Lost City - and that's not even the best part. The sheltered valley and waterhole of the Garden of Eden makes today bloody bonza (translation: awesome).

Day 20

+

Coober Pedy

Check out the world's longest Dingo Fence (good thing there's a gate) and truck on past some very remote roadhouses before crossing the border into South Australia. It's time to cross the gemstone littered and soft grounds of the Moon Plain up the middle of Australia. Then we roll into the next gem on our list to check out where 75% of the world's opals come from and a chance to meet the orphans of the kangaroo world.

Day 21

+

Quorn

After a #saltlakeselfie stop and a meet-and-greet with the sheep farming township of Glendambo (with a population of 30) we're riding south into the Flinders Ranges. You'll want to keep your camera charged for this one. Round off the day with a pub meal - tomorrow's going to be epic.

Day 22

+

Parachilna

Flinders Ranges National Park is a spoiled brat, it has everything. From mountains to gorges and creeks to rivers, you're lucky you get to play in it today. Take a hike to Wilpena Pound - a natural amphitheatre about three times the size of Uluru. Then to rock art site Arkaroo Rock, and the Kanyaka Ruins a lesson in hard yakka at Kanyaka Station - an abandoned sheep and cattle farm.

Day 23

+

Adelaide

We start our way towards the outback today with some dramatic scencery changes - we are heading for the City! A visit to the Barossa Reservoir Whispering Wall - there's a time and a place for confessions. This isn't it. Tonight take in some of Adelaides finest locacl food and entertainment.

Day 24

+

Adelaide

"You've made it to one of the world's coolest cities (according to Lonely Planet). Today's a free day for the adventurous to head out to spot seals, kangaroos and penguins on Australia's answer to the Galapagos: Kangaroo Island. Learn about some of the 46 endemic species. Spend the day slurping noodles in the Adelaide Central Market, or take a tram to the seaside village of Glenelg.

Day 25

+

Mount Gambier

Stroll through the Valley Lake conservation area and learn about the pre-human flora and fauna existence. Snap madly away on the camera as you spot a Skippy - hot tip: don’t go to hug one. Before kicking on to Adelaide, check out the Blue Lake (depending on what time of the year you visit, you may have your own dilemma of “the dress” kind on your hands - the lake changes colour) and the Umpherston Sinkhole - Australia’s own version of the Sacred Valley of the Inca Trail. Because no South Australian voyage is complete without wine, we get to concoct our own potion as we stop at Wynn’s Coonawarra vineyard. Chin chin!

Day 26

+

Halls Gap

By the end of today you'll have nailed a trifecta of the highest, largest and longest landforms across two states. Next up: McKenzie Falls, the largest waterfall in Victoria. It's no Niagara, but flowing water is guaranteed year-round - a rare promise in a country that's 40% desert. Then, the Northern Grampians for one last panorama shot where #natureporn trends with views to Mt Williams, the highest peak in the park and third-highest mountain in Victoria. To complete the trilogy: Tomorrow we cross the Murray River - a bronze medallist to the Nile and Amazon, stretching 2520 kilometres and spanning three states. How's that for a form guide?

Day 27

+

Port Campbell

Meet the traditional land owners, whose ancestors were scratching and dabbing their Dreamtime stories onto rock long before the Pyramids of Egypt were conceived, then paint your own story onto a boomerang. This afternoon is all about the Twelve Apostles, aka the Stonehenge of Australia and a sunset to write home about.

Day 28

+

Melbourne

If you've ever seen a car commercial, chances are you've seen the Great Ocean Road. With mere metres between road and water, hairpin bends and epic views out every window - today you'll join the list of five million people to do this road-of-passage each year. Before putting any rubber on the Great Ocean Road, we'll tick off the spiritual home of surfing, spot koalas in the wild and lunch in a seaside village. This afternoon we roll into Melbourne to meet the best coffee in the southern hemisphere. You might want to stick around.
