You can travel to Australia's east coast all year round. However, the climate varies greatly depending on the region, which is why we recommend a trip from Sydney to Cairns between September and November. We will be happy to advise you on the best season for your individual itinerary.

Welcome to the fifth continent. You will land at Sydney International Airport and receive a warm welcome from the driver of your collective transfer.

After reaching your hotel, you have time to freshen up before plunging into the lively hustle and bustle of Sydney. Circular Quay is the ideal place to start exploring.

You can't miss the world-famous Opera House. Remember to bring your camera! Take great photos of the city's landmark and watch the sun sink behind the famous Harbour Bridge.

Pro tip: the Bridge Climb is a highlight of any Sydney trip. Secured with a belly belt, you climb the 134-meter-high Harbour Bridge and enjoy a fantastic view of the modern port city.

From here, you can easily reach the city's historic harbor district, The Rocks. You will stroll past small brick houses, trendy bars and cozy restaurants - a popular quarter that invites you to linger. Relax here in one of Australia's oldest pubs with a cool drink and take in the hustle and bustle.

Time spent traveling from the airport to your hotel in Sydney: 8 km / approx. 20 minutes

3 nights at Travelodge Wynyard**** in a Guest Room, Sydney, Australia

PREMIUM option: 3 nights at Harbour Rocks Hotel Sydney****+ in a Heritage Room, Sydney, Australia

It’s a good morning indeed in the Harbor City. Start the day right with a tour of Sydney. A small bus will take you to Sydney's most popular sights, such as the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the historic The Rocks district.

Continue along trendy Oxford Street, past the elegant Paddington district, to the famous Bondi Beach. On the way back, you will take part in a lunch cruise at King Street Wharf. You will board a boat and enjoy Sydney's fascinating skyline, accompanied by a light lunch. You will arrive at King Street Wharf around 1:45 p.m. or at Circular Quay at approx. 2:20 p.m. From here, you will return to your hotel on your own.

Spend the rest of the day as you wish: whether you feel like shopping, eating and/or relaxing, Sydney has everything one could possibly want. Organize the day according to your interests and experience this fascinating city for yourself.

Stroll through Australia's largest shopping centers in the Central Business District (CBD) or along the Coastal Walk at Bondi Beach. Cool off in the Pacific Ocean or soak up the sun on one of the gorgeous stretches of beach.

Alternatively, adventure seekers will get their money's worth with a visit to Sydney Tower Eye. Adrenaline is guaranteed in the Skywalk: 268 meters above the city center, you will walk across the glass floor of the observation deck and enjoy the best view of the metropolis and its sights.

After three relaxing days in Sydney, pick up your rental car today in Downtown Sydney and drive west along the Great Western Highway to Katoomba in the Greater Blue Mountains Area.

Before arriving at your destination, we recommend a stop at the Echo Point Lookout. Pull out your camera and take great photos of the Three Sisters rock formation, which are also the most famous landmark of New South Wales.

But what exactly is the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area? Home to nature reserves and national parks, the area boasts a great variety of eucalyptus trees, magnificent plateaus, fascinating gorges and spectacular waterfalls. It is one of the most important sights of Australia. The Blue Mountains owe their name to the essential oil of the eucalyptus forests, which evaporates and rises high above the treetops. Rays of sunlight then cause the blue glow.

A cable car, panoramic train or a hike through the rainforest (for a fee) will show you and allow you to fully experience the beauty of the Blue Mountains from an entirely new perspective - simply great!
