Days 1–2: En route to Melbourne

Melbourne has an artistic side to it—you'll see it in the city's museums and galleries, unique architectural features such as Federation Square, and in the public art displays. The Yarra River Gallery, a 10-minute walk from your hotel, has outdoor sculptures and other art installations.

You'll take a guided city tour; spend the rest of the time exploring Melbourne at your own pace.

Trip suggestions:

Days 7–10: Sydney

Flight time from Melbourne: 1.5 hours

Downtown Sydney sits right along Sydney Harbour. It's worth it to take a stroll along the harbor's bays and inlets; many of the city's top attractions sit right on the water, including the Sydney Opera House. You can walk here from your Potts Point hotel, through the Royal Botanic Gardens.

While in Sydney, you will visit Bondi Beach, which often ranks among the world's most beautiful. You'll enjoy a surfing lesson here, then it's up to you what you want to do with the rest of your stay.

Trip suggestions:

  • Take to the seas on a ferry or harbor cruise and you'll get nice views of the city skyline.
  • If you buy a two- or three-day Sydney Sightseeing Pass you can get free entrance to more than 40 attractions and unlimited rides on the city's trains, buses, ferries, and light rail.

Days 11–13: Gold Coast

Flight time from Sydney: 1.5 hours

Situated on the eastern shores of Australia, the Gold Coast is popular for its golden beaches and energetic nightlife. Your hotel in the Surfer's Paradise neighborhood puts you within easy walking distance of the beach, as well as nearby restaurants and bars.

One evening during your say, you'll have the opportunity to experience a Nocturnal 4WD Rainforest and Glow Worm Tour.

Trip suggestions:

Day 14: En route to Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York City
