Think of the must-see sights in Australia and this independent tour captures them all. It begins with the opportunity to experience the youthful, energetic ambiance of Sydney on a full city tour. The magnificent outdoors of this vast land is then yours to explore; the luscious Blue Mountains and the tropical natural wonders of North Queensland are truly enchanting. Your self-drive begins en route to the boutique beach village of Palm Cove, gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Contrast this with the fertile rainforest of the Daintree before flying into the remote Red Centre outback to experience the colossal monolith of Uluru, renowned for its kaleidescope of colours.
