Take your time (set aside at least three days for this trip), make plenty of stops in small seaside villages, chill at the beaches and enjoy the local food and drinks.
Get to know the heart of Australia
If you really want to get to know the Land Down Under, you must take a road trip to the Aussie outback. Menacing gorges, sandy dunes and hospitable valleys will lead you to famous destinations like Uluru, Kings Canyon and Alice Springs. Spend the nights at cozy wilderness lodges or even pitch the tent for a more authentic adventure. The Red Center Way will provide you with a truly spiritual experience that will teach you what real freedom and untamed power of nature mean.
Have a spa day on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is a real hedonist paradise that will provide you with all the pampering experiences you can imagine from Moroccan hammams to exclusive caviar facials! Rent a car in Brisbane for a comfortable road trip to Gold Coast and book a stay at one of the lux hotels. Just be sure to have a number of a mobile mechanic in Gold Coast just in case you run into any car problems that could ruin your perfect weekend!
Rent a yacht
One of the best ways to get familiar with Australia’s biggest city, Sydney, is to sail its world-famous harbour. So, rent a yacht or a sailboat and sail past the Opera House and Harbour Bridge while sampling the best Aussie wines and dishes.
Enjoy the beach life
You simply can’t leave Australia without enjoying their famous beach lifestyle. For that reason, you should consider visiting Bondi, Manly and Coogee and watch people rush by, drink a few cocktails and even try your hand at surfing. However, if you’re looking for something more private and lux, book an exclusive beach resort stay and have a super relaxing beach experience.
Grab a bike
Another great way to explore Sydney and visit all the well-hidden gems of the city is to book a private bicycle tour. You will ride next to the Opera House, Sydney and Darling Harbour, Botanic Gardens, many parks, galleries, memorials and historical buildings. You could also make a stop at bars and restaurants for some refreshment and tasty meals.
Visit Byron Bay
If the hectic city life becomes arduous, escape to Byron Bay for some peace, quiet and relaxation. Byron Bay has always been a well-known getaway for the rich and famous, so join the Aussie elite and have a stylish vacation away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney. At Byron Bay, you can book private surf classes, go on scuba diving expeditions, ride horses in the water and reach Zen through yoga, meditation and spa sessions. Basically, there’s something for everyone! Even hot air balloons aren’t strangers in Byron Bay.
Hit the slopes
For those who don’t do as well in high climates, in Australia there are much more options, you can travel to Victorian Alps and hit the slopes in one of the most private and exclusive mountain regions— Mt. Hotham. It’s a perfect retreat for all adrenaline lovers who are looking for an adventure on skis or snowboards mixed with the pure comfort of mountain resorts. If you’re not much of a skier, you can still enjoy the mountain atmosphere by hiking, exploring local towns and taking in gorgeous vistas. Just remember to bring some warm clothes and comfy walking boots, so you can really get to know the wilderness first-hand.
Australia has so many different things to offer that you might as well stay a year and still have something new to see and do. What is more, even if you’re used to luxury and comfort, embarking on a shorter exploratory trip to some of these destinations will satisfy all your Aussie needs and leave you with amazing memories and impressions.
