Independent Tours

This independent tour takes you from Perth and Cairns to Sydney and Melbourne via the aboriginal heartland of Alice Springs and Uluru. It’s an opportunity to experience dramatic coastal scenery and expansive desertscapes as well as tropical rainforests and soaring sandstone ridges. As you’ll be staying in each location for at least three nights, you’ll get to learn more about the local culture and enjoy city sightseeing tours in the company of local guides. Domestic flights are also included. This allows for more time on the ground as you travel between Western Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria with the minimum of fuss. From catamaran cruises across the Great Barrier Reef and day trips into Blue Mountains National Park to gourmet tours around the wine estates of the Yarra Valley – if you’re looking to encompass Australia in 18 days, this one’s got your name on it.
