9-Day, 7-Night Tour of Sydney and Cairns:
This extended trip includes everything from the eight-day tour, and it adds three nights in the tropical city of Cairns at the Pacific International Hotel. Located on Australia’s northern coast, Cairns draws visitors looking to snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef and explore the nearby national parks. Become acquainted with the area during a Kuranda Scenic Railway train ride, which snakes through the Macalister Range’s rainforest en route to the tropical gardens at the Kuranda rail station.
Later, you’ll set out on a Skyrail Rainforest Cableway for an overhead view of North Queensland’s forests. The 7.5-kilometer ride looks down upon pristine rainforest, allowing visitors to spot native flora and a sea of monkey bald spots. This trip includes an open day, on which you can scuba dive along the Great Barrier Reef (not included in the package) or visit North Queensland’s beaches.
12-Day, 10-Night Tour of Sydney, Cairns, and Melbourne:
This extended trip includes everything from the nine-day tour, plus a three-night stay at The Crossley Hotel in multicultural Melbourne, Australia’s second-largest city. A city tour may investigate neighborhoods such as Fitzroy, Carlton, and St. Kilda, where international artists, musicians, and designers typically meet in the fashionable boutiques and welcoming cafés. Walk through the charming 18th-century Cooks’ Cottage, home of Captain James Cook's parents, or sample the fresh guavas, nectarines, and pomegranates at the historical Queen Victoria Market.
