For those who are travelling solo, there are cosmopolitan cities waiting to delight your senses, with new wonders around every corner.

Starting with Sydney your exploration begins with some of Australia’s most famous icons, the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, before giving way to the wine region of the Hunter Valley and the World Heritage Listed wilderness of the Blue Mountains.
