Spotlight on Australia

If you are looking for an Australia-only trip, this 11-day tour – featuring private charter flights throughout the country – is just for you! Begin with two nights in Melbourne at a top hotel in the heart of the Victorian city; guided sightseeing offers an insider's perspective on Melbourne life and landmark sights. Our Australia tours include a night at Uluru (Ayers Rock) in the desert Outback, and three nights at a beachfront resort in Queensland featuring a cruise to Agincourt Reef in the Great Barrier Reef, a rainforest gondola ride and a "crocodile" tour! On your final four nights in Sydney you'll tour the iconic Sydney Opera House, take a private Sydney Harbour luncheon cruise, go on a "Foodie Tour" of the city's culinary highlights and more.1
