Learn to surf in Byron Bay with a local expert, sail the Sydney harbour in a racing yacht, relax on a full-day Whitsunday Islands cruise, learn firsthand about Aboriginal culture and history in the Daintree Rainforest
This comfort-minded journey up Australia’s eastern shore delivers the wonders of the region to you in fine style. Using a diverse range of transport—trains, yachts, surfboards—and resort-style lodgings, you’ll sample world-class wines, wander through rainforests and even learn how to catch a few waves (and a few fish). Plus, we keep your group size intentionally small so it feels less like travelling with a herd and more like exploring with great new friends.
