Sydney Discovery

All the glam. Much sparkle. Sure Sydney has a lot to offer, but get out of the urban jungle & discover the other side to this glorious harbour city. Visit pockets of Sydney you wouldn’t otherwise reach, take in a natural wonder or two & get your clink on in the vineyards of the Hunter Valley. Then we’ll bring you back to the bright lights for one more glimpse of that famous bridge & opera house.

Day 1

Sydney to Port Stephens

You don’t need telling that Sydney has some pretty iconic sights to see. But we’ll take you to a spot in Kirribilli to get the very best views. After a short walking tour of the area, it’s up onto the Harbour Bridge, then beach time! We’ll check out the laidback lifestyle of Manly Beach before heading up the freeway to meet some local Aboriginal people. Think Rock Art & bush tucker tastings. After a jam-packed day we’ll relax in Port Stephens for a filling feast & maybe even a ‘coldie’ at the local bar.

Included today: Kirribilli, Manly Beach, Brisbane Water National Park & Aboriginal Welcome & Rock Art

Meals: Dinner

Day 2

Port Stephens

Port Stephens is practically horizontal, it’s so laid back. You could take it easy today on an optional dolphin cruise with a swim & boomnet ride. Feeling more energetic? You could hike to the top of Tomaree Head for sensational views, or for exploring further there are options for sand dune quad biking & sand boarding. Whatever you do you’ll work up an appetite. Thankfully this place is known for its seafood, so we’ll have a taste of the local catch.

Included today: Seafood tasting

Meals: Breakfast

Optional activities: Sand boarding, Dolphin cruise / swim, Quad biking

Day 3

Port Stephens to hunter Valley Hunter Valley is synonymous with wine. Visit a local vineyard, a brewery, & a chocolate tasting. You’ll get to hop in an oak barrel & have a go at grape stomping, then take a walk through the vines & into the Hunter Wine Theatre to learn about the grape’s journey from vine to bottle. Round off the day with a glass of something in hand as you overlook the rolling vine striped hills of the area.

Included today: Wine & chocolate tasting, Grape stomping & Wine school

Meals included: Breakfast

Day 4

Hunter Valley to Blue Mountains

Glenbrook might be small but it’s big on good coffee. We’ll stop off here before heading up to the Blue Mountains. Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin & head towards the magical Wentworth Falls, check out the huge drop waterfall of Govetts Leap, Narrow Neck lookout, & Katoomba Falls, before seeing the ‘3 Sisters’ at sunset.

Included today: Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains Lookouts & 3 Sisters Sunset

Day 5

Blue Mountains to Sydney

Sure the Blue Mountains are gorgeous to just gawp at, but there a whole load of activities on offer to try too. Optional abseiling take your fancy? Or if you’re more of a speed fiend you could opt for a local Harley Davidson ride. Slower-paced options include the Scenic World Cable Car & walk in the rainforest. In fact there are lots of walks close by that you can pick from. Say goodbye to the Blue Mountains mid-afternoon, we’ll be tracking back to Sydney.
