Iconic Australia

Sydney, Rock & Reef - Hero2

Independent Tours

In a country as vast and varied as Australia, with all its many natural and man-made attractions, it’s sometimes hard for the first-time visitor to know where to begin. This independent tour has become something of a classic crowd pleaser, combining the urban buzz of Sydney, the spectacular monolith of Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock) and the Great Barrier Reef. But that’s not all; with no fewer than seven included sightseeing excursions, you’ll experience everything from meeting kangaroos in the Blue Mountains, floating over a rainforest canopy and a magical evening dining under the stars.
