Itinerary

1 April 2018 - 31 March 2019 ?
Day 1
Sydney – Port Macquarie

As this Guided Holiday departs early morning, accommodation will need to be pre-booked for the previous night.

Leave Sydney bound for the Hunter Valley. One of Australia’s major wine regions, its viticultural history dates to the early 1800s. It’s known for its varietals such as Semillon and Shiraz, and is home to numerous wineries including world-renowned brands and family-run boutique operations. Visit a vineyard to enjoy an exclusive wine-tasting and get to know your fellow travellers over lunch. Continue north to the seaside town of Port Macquarie. Best-known for its beaches and waterways, it is also emerging as a vibrant cultural hub with many galleries. It is also rich in convict history.

Hotel: Waters Edge, Port Macquarie

Included Meals: Lunch and dinner with wine

Day 2
Port Macquarie – Gold Coast

Journey to Cape Byron Lighthouse and enjoy superb views from Australia’s eastern-most point over the Pacific Ocean. At the right time of year, you may be lucky enough to spot migrating whales frolicking off the coast. For lunch, we recommend fresh fish and chips on the beach at Byron Bay, there’s nothing more Australian! Continue to the famous holiday destination, the Gold Coast, where you’ll stay for the next two nights.

Hotel: Novotel Surfers Paradise, 2 nights

Included Meals: Breakfast

Day 3
Gold Coast Included Choice

Included ChoiceToday you can choose one from a selection of Included Choice sightseeing experiences. Take a half day 4WD tour inland to Tamborine Mountain. You’ll explore the rainforest on a guided walk to a tropical waterfall and wander through Mt. Tamborine’s Gallery Walk, the Hinterlands arts and craft centre. If the water beckons, take a boat trip to learn about crab fishing or ‘pumping yabbies’, a truly unique and local experience. Or perhaps you prefer to be 270 metres in the air, on the SkyPoint Climb. It is Australia's highest external building climb and provides unparalleled 360° views of the Gold Coast and beyond.

Hotel: Novotel Surfers Paradise
