After arriving in Sydney, explore the city’s historic landmarks, vibrant dining scene, bustling designer retail shops, theatre scene and cultural venues at your leisure.

Aboard our exclusive luxury cruiser, have a front row seat to see the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and Luna Park. Enroute enjoy a delicious 2-course meal with seasonal, locally sourced food and wine.

You’ll have two full days to discover Sydney at your leisure and the freedom to tailor your itinerary to suit your interests and pace. Included is the Sydney Opera House Tour & Dine option where you can step inside and hear the extraordinary stories of this internationally renowned landmark, then relax by the harbor for lunch. Please chat with our Destination Specialists to customize your itinerary.

From Sydney you’ll fly to Uluru / Ayers Rock, in the heart of the Northern Territory’s arid ‘Red Centre’.  Uluru itself is a massive sandstone monolith and World Heritage listed site in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.  See the spectacular rock and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), a sacred Aboriginal site where unique flora and fauna thrive.

Walk between Walpa Gorge’s mighty conglomerate domes, hear about their evolution and why this unique location captivates all who visit. You have several options for your evening.  A ‘must-do’ is the exclusive ‘Sounds of Silence’ dinner under the outback sky with the once-in-a-lifetime award-winning Field of Light art installation.

Watch the sun rise over Uluru/Ayers Rock from your private dune top viewing area. Enjoy a traditional bushman’s breakfast. Learn about the region’s natural history as daylight reveals a myriad of animal tracks in the sand and insight into what activity took place through the night.

Next stop - Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre to learn about the local Anangu Aboriginal people. Take a short walk into Mutitjulu waterhole to appreciate its cathedral-like proportions and its spiritual significance for visitors and the Anangu people alike before returning to the resort to relax.

From Ayers Rock, you’ll fly to Cairns in tropical North Queensland for your 4-night stay at luxurious Crystalbrook Flynn.

Enjoy a full day out on the Great Barrier Reef visiting two reef locations. Enjoy a guided snorkeling tour with snorkel equipment and flotation devices included, and full use of the indoor and outdoor facilities on board.

Make the most of your free days to relax, explore or indulge.

Learn more about Aboriginal art and culture.  Join an art class with an Aboriginal artist. Paint your own canvas to take home. Be part of a welcome to country smoking ceremony and enjoy a sumptuous lunch. Explore the Daintree rainforest or Mossman Gorge and Cultural Centre.  You can choose the standard tour which includes an interpretive walk through the ancient rainforest with our Aboriginal guide, or upgrade to the Ngadiku Dreamtime Walk from Mossman Gorge Centre.

From Cairns you’ll board your return international flight to Brisbane and then on to Los Angeles.
