Tasting your way through Sydney

Day 9

A "Foodie Tour" sampling some of Sydney's coolest eats

A knowledgeable local guide leads the way on a "Taste of Sydney" foodie tour that celebrates the multicultural heritage of the city and its gastronomic legacy – including seafood at a fish market; meat pie tasting (try their house specialty, Tiger Pie) at Harry’s famous pie cart; a craft beer tasting at a 100-year-old pub; a sweet sampling of gelato and more.

Ride the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Day 4

Soaring over Queensland's treetops

Embark on a journey of discovery over and deep into the world’s oldest surviving tropical rainforest aboard the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway near Cairns. The Skyrail experience provides a truly unique perspective of Australia’s World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest - immersing you in the sights, sounds, and tranquility of one of the most botanically fascinating areas on Earth. The Skyrail’s purpose-built gondolas offer a birds-eye view of this living natural wonder… whose prehistoric ancestry is some 60 million years older than the Amazon!

Itinerary is well thought out & covers many of the tourist highlights of Australia. City tours of Melbourne & Sydney were excellent.

Tauck Traveler Review

Cruise to the Outer Great Barrier Reef

Day 5

Aquatic fun at the Agincourt Reef

A high-tech catamaran whisks you out to the Outer Great Barrier Reef – to the Agincourt Reef, at the very edge of Australia's Continental Shelf, to be exact – where you'll explore and enjoy this remarkable natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. Swim or snorkel over vast coral gardens, seeing (and swimming with, if you choose to) thousands of colorful fish.
