This morning, we fly from Brisbane to Sydney. Note: if you live outside of the Brisbane/Gold Coast/Sunshine Coast areas, we will book your flight from your nearest regional airport.
First up, we head to our accommodation to unpack before taking a tour of the historic Rocks area which still has some of its original colonial buildings. We'll then enjoy a sightseeing trip around Sydney to see the Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Botanical Gardens.
Our tour will take us to Circular Quay to see the famous Sydney Harbour from the water.
Be prepared to get wet as we take 360-degree turns on a thrilling jet boat ride. Afterwards we'll return to our hostel to dry off in time for dinner.

Today we’re off to Taronga Zoo, one of Sydney’s most popular attractions and home to over 4,000 animals. Established over 100 years ago, the zoo is a conservation and education hub where you can see and learn about animals and enjoy special exhibitions. Don’t forget to take a few moments to look across the water at one of the best views in Sydney.
In the evening we visit Chinatown – a vibrant and colourful precinct with many restaurants to choose from.

Get ready for an exciting day that includes the experience of a lifetime – seeing Sydney Harbour from the summit of its world famous bridge! During the Bridge Climb, you’ll climb four ladders to reach the upper arch where you’ll be rewarded with an unparalleled 360-degree panorama of Sydney and a bird’s-eye view of the busy traffic below.
We’ll celebrate at the summit and you’ll receive a group photograph, Bridge Climb cap and a certificate of achievement. We will visit Darling Harbour, known as the city’s ‘playground for all ages’. Here, you have the option to explore the waterfalls, lakes, exotic plants, pavilions and hidden pathways of the Chinese Gardens of Friendship (at own expense).
Meals included: Breakfast and dinner
This morning we’ll explore Sydney’s famous coast starting at Bronte Beach followed by a walk to Bondi Beach, home to the reality TV lifesavers who patrol Australia’s busiest beach. There will be time to wander the esplanade before heading to Watsons Bay for a walk up to The Gap and its clifftop views across to Manly and out toward the Tasman Sea.
In the early afternoon it’s time to say farewell to this beautiful and fun city as you are transported to the airport by shuttle bus to catch your flight home to Brisbane.
