Three-City Siteseeing Vacation of Australia with Luxury Accommodations and Guided Sightseeing Trips

Because it’s so big, Australia experiences a wide variety of climates that range from tropical in the north to temperate in the south. As a result, its lands are covered with a cornucopia of diverse terrain including white-sand beaches, rolling vineyards, and arid deserts. On this 15-day, 12-night Australian vacation, you’ll explore three cities with distinct landscapes and attractions, all situated along the coast. The trip includes airfare to Brisbane, Adelaide, and Sydney as well as luxury hotel accommodations, breakfasts, transfers and sightseeing tours in each city.

Days 1–6: Gold Coast

On the first leg of the tour, you’ll fly overnight into Brisbane and then head to Surfers Paradise, a seaside suburb in Gold Coast. This area of eastern Australia is a popular tourism destination as a result of its white-sand beaches and a sunny, subtropical climate. Prime surfing spots, high-end boutiques, and glitzy nightclubs are all within walking distance of your hotel.

Your stay in Surfers Paradise also includes a tour of the Australia Zoo, an award-winning wildlife-conservation facility owned by the Irwin family, as well as a full-day sightseeing tour of Byron Bay. The coastal town has some of the country’s most unspoiled beaches and is a great place to spot humpback whales, which migrate through the area from the end of June through October.

Days 7–10: Adelaide

Next up is Adelaide, a colonial city on Australia’s southern coast. The city is known for its historic stone architecture, spacious parks, and gourmet restaurants that buy local produce, meats, and seafood from the Adelaide Central Market; you can take a tour of the market to learn more about its history and growers. Adelaide is also just an hour south of the Barossa Valley, a famous winemaking region in southern Australia.

While in Adelaide, you’ll take a half-day sightseeing tour of the city and a full-day tour of Kangaroo Island, a sparsely populated island off the coast of South Australia that’s rife with nature preserves. On the tour, you might see kangaroos, koalas, and southern right whales.

Days 11–15: Sydney

Your trip concludes in Sydney, a modern metropolis that borders Sydney Harbor on the southeastern coast of Australia. Here, you’ll find the Sydney Opera House and a number of world-class museums, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Australian National Maritime Museum. The latter is an indoor and outdoor gallery with interactive exhibits and a large fleet of historical watercraft.

Get to know some of Sydney’s most famous attractions on a full-day sightseeing tour of the city. The visit also includes a harbor cruise with stunning views of the skyline.

The best part was the Open Road tour. We enjoyed the shuttles TO the hotels but not finding our own ways back to the airports. This did not really mention you'd need to find your own way around places. Wish there had been more included tours of the areas we were in. Can't wait to go back again in the future!

Amazing. I never thought about buying a Groupon for a trip since I have been scammed by cheap trip deals elsewhere, but a reputable company directed me to this trip. It was so easy and the travel company I had to call to activate it was phenomenal. They did all the booking, made sure we had all the Visa information filled out, trip insurance and anything we didn't know we would need! The Cambridge Hotel in Surry Hills they booked us into for the 4 nights was phenomenal. The location was AWESOME. One block away was Oxford street with buses and pharmacies and coffee shops (Sydney has incredible coffee - they excel at Mochas and they have alternative milks). A half block away was an Irish Pub and buses directly to Circular Quay (pronounced Key) with the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge (I didn't get to the Bridge Walk).Could walk to major places like Hyde Park, Australian Museum and the Westfield Eye/Sydney Eye Tower. Once at Circular Quay, there are subway trains and ferries to places like the indoor wildlife park to get close to Koala Bears and Kangaroo! Virgin Australia was the airline with nonstop to Sydney from LAX. I couldn't believe we got such an amazing airline for this price. Yes, it was economy seating, but it was a premium airline with personal free entertainment with movies, and music at your fingertips from the headrest tvs. Food was great and at good intervals with snacks. Airline hosts were amazing. Shuttle from airport to hotel was clean and efficient. Makes me sad I have never used Groupon for travel before. I have not only recommended and told about this to friends, but almost everyone I meet. Amazing adventure at affordable price.
