DAY 1 - Arrive Sydney
Sydney
Welcome to Sydney. After meeting up with your brand new travel family, we’ll be hitting the road, country bound, for a day trip to one of Australia's finest the majestic Blue Mountains (which aren’t actually blue, but are still damn beautiful). Out here in the great Aussie outdoors we’ll be learning the legend behind the famous Three Sisters rocks formation and exploring the Jamison Ridge area, basically living out all our rustic dreams. Back in Sydney later, we'll eat ourselves silly with a hands-on cook your own BBQ dinner, contemplating how it's possible to do so much in just one day. Waterfalls and mini-hikes by day, sunset drinks and a BBQ by night that's just how we roll on day-1 of Contiki.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Day trip out to the stunning Blue Mountains
See the famous Three Sisters rock formation
Hike along the ridge overlooking Jamison Valley
Cook your own BBQ dinner
DAY 2 - Sydney
Sydney
This morning we'll hit the road and head on a day trip to one of Australia's finest: the majestic Blue Mountains (which aren't actually blue, but are still beautiful all the same). Out here in the great Aussie Outdoors we'll be learning about the legends behind the famous Three Sisters rock formation as well as exploring the Jamison Ridge area. We'll head back to Sydney and the evening is yours to make the most of. Why not visit some of the trendy rooftop bars and restaurants that make this city so vibrant? It'd be rude not to!
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Day trip out to the stunning Blue Mountains
DAY 3 - Sydney to Coffs Harbour via Port Macquarie
Sydney
With Sydney satisfaction levels on high, today we start our Aussie road trip and hit the road, East Coast bound.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the famous 'Big Banana'
Stop in the seaside resort town of Port Macquarie
Port Macquarie
We'll break up our journey to Coffs Harbour with a lunch stop in Port Macquarie. This pretty seaside town sits at the end of the Hastings River and gives us a taste of life on the New South Wales mid coast.
Coffs Harbour
Your surf bum dreams are all about to come true as we shack up for the night in our Coffs Harbour surf camp. Sitting right on the beach, a constant stream of swims and beach hangs are the norm, then come night fall it’s all about an open fire, great chats with new friends, and occasional star gazing. Perfection much?
DAY 4 - Coffs Harbour to Byron Bay
Coffs Harbour
Byron may be calling, but this morning is all about living the Aussie dream as we finish off our Coffs stay with a professional surf lesson. Could this be the secret talent you never knew you had?
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Learn to surf the waves at our beachside surf camp at Coffs Harbour
Visit Australia's most eastern point & Cape Byron lighthouse
Get into Byron's organic lifestyle & cool nightlife
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Byron Bay Kayaking 3hrs
A$65
Byron Bay
Dolphins and humpback whales sailing past the lighthouse of Australia's most easterly point. Organic cafes and bohemian bazaars. 30 kilometres of perfect sand. Oh yes - Byron Bay is every kind of beach paradise with a cherry on top, and our time here will be nothing short of magic.
DAY 5 - Byron Bay to Surfers Paradise
Byron Bay
Today is all yours to explore at your own pace. Early birds why not head towards the Byron Bay Lighthouse for a mesmerising (and romantic) sunrise experience. Then, maybe opt for a cheeky tanning session at one of the many golden beaches. When you're done wiggling your toes in the sand, it's time to satisfy your hunger at one of the many delicious cafes and restaurants. Venture through the streets and soak up the hippie vibes this town has to offer before we make our way to our next destination, Surfers Paradise, where 'beautiful one day, perfect the next' is how the lifestyle goes.
 
Surfers Paradise
DAY 6 - Surfers Paradise incl Currumbin
Surfers Paradise
This morning is all about chilling, hitting the beach, and getting a little R'n'R after the night before. We're nice like that. But remember, you're not in Surfer's forever, so do this thing right - don't stay in bed when there's a parachute with your name on it at the nearby skydiving centre. How's that for a rush of adrenaline? In the afternoon just make sure you're back (on earth) in time for some serious koala cuddling sessions at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. 
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Relax on some of Australia's most famous beaches on the Gold Coast
Visit Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary - and see native Australian animals including kangaroos, emus, crocodiles, dingoes & Tasmanian devils
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Tandem Skydiving
from A$355
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
All animal cuteness goals can easily be achieved in this neck of the woods. The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is undeniably a must-see destination if you've made it as far as Surfer's Paradise. Here's your chance to see how cute koalas really are, feed a kangaroo & see a crocodile up close (but not too close, obvs). Best of all, it's a non-for-profit set up, so our visit supports the sanctuary's animal hospital and gives back to Oz's furry friends. Soak up on all the cuteness this place has to offer before we head back to Surfer's for a relaxing night by the resort pool or choose to  live it up in one of the many nightclubs this city has to offer.
DAY 7 - Depart Surfers Paradise
Surfers Paradise
OK we get the hype, the love the world has for the Gold Coast is totally justified. Set your alarm early for one last beachside stroll, then it’s time to say goodbye. Swap social deets, squeeze in last minute hugs and start thinking about the destination for the much anticipated reunion trip...

We didn't know where to begin with planning a trip to Australia but we knew we wanted to see a bit of the coast. It was a dream! From exploring the Opera House, to learning to Surf, to Kayaking with dolphins and whales, this trip was great! I've always wanted to get up close to Koala's and Kangaroos so those have been checked off my bucket list. Climbing the Sydney Bridge was on my bucket list as well so not having to coordinate it was so convenient! Jill was absolutely the best trip manager imaginable. She was so helpful with maps and advice and so patient! She made our trip a blast! Fun music for the drive, great ice breakers, and all around a great leader. I'm still laughing at Dracula's and some of the other silly things we saw on the trip! Thank you Contiki for making it sooooooo easy to explore a new Country!
