About this trip

While many of the world's greatest cities get shrouded in snow on New Year's Eve, Sydney dials up the heat & delivers a balmy night of non-stop festivities. Watch fireworks burst off the Harbour Bridge, roam the countless lively bars and clubs & watch the sunrise on Bondi Beach. You can afford to sleep all day given we have a total of 4-days to explore the city.

DAY 2 - Sydney- New Year's Eve

Sydney

Today Sydney is yours, so make the most of her. We’ve got a sightseeing tour sorted for this morning taking in some of the city’s best sights, including one of the finest stretches of sand in the world –Bondi beach. Want to burn some energy before party time tonight? Join the lycra clad Sydney siders on the Bondi to Coogee coastal trail, stopping on route for mandatory ice cream breaks. 

Tonight, you’ve got the best seats in the house, or should we say the harbour. Watch the clock strike twelve and the sky come alive with fireworks on our Sydney Harbour cruise, complete with canapes, dinner, and drinks galore. Throw in our on board DJ, and this might just be the best new years of your life.

DAY 3 - Sydney- New Year's Day

Sydney

Morning sunshine! Sore head? A classic Sydney brunch will sort that out – we love Bills in Darlinghurst. Today is the beginning of a new year, so start it as you mean to go on. Hit up the surf on Bondi or Manly, hang out in Hyde Park or explore some of the city’s trendier areas like New Town or Surry Hills. Your Trip Manager will have the low down on all the hottest spots, so don’t be shy – ask away.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions group

Are flights included in my trip?

International flights to/from the destination your trip starts and ends in are not included in the cost of the trip, and must be purchased separately. You can book these independently if you want to shop around for the best quote, or through your travel agent.

Any flights you take during your Contiki are included in the cost of your trip. On certain Australian trips we use planes to get you from A to B as quickly as possible, and all of this is included.

What documents do I need to travel?

Depending on your nationality, you may require visas to enter Australia & New Zealand. You are fully responsible for obtaining all necessary visas prior to the departure of your trip. Contiki is not legally permitted to knowingly allow anybody who does not have a valid visa (if required) to join a trip. Visa & other entry & exit conditions such as currency, arrival/ departure taxes, customs & quarantine regulations change regularly, so make sure you stay up-to-date before you travel. See here for more info: https://www.australia.gov.au/information-and-services/immigration-and-visas
https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas/options/visit
It is also essential that you have any necessary vaccinations & comply with all laws of the countries visited.

What are the luggage restrictions?

On our Australia & New Zealand trips, you can bring one bag or suitcase of 73cm x 50cm x 25cm (29” x 20” x 10”), with a max weight of 20kg (44lbs) plus one piece of hand luggage suitable as a carry-on for flights.

What do the Contiki team do?

People are at the heart of everything we do, and our team is what makes our trips the best. Our worldwide On-Road Team, locally based staff & network of Local Guides are all extensively trained & widely travelled, & are the best in the business. But we know it’s not just about training, it’s about passion & our team have it in their blood. 
Your Trip Manager is like your walking, talking guidebook – just for you. They plan your itinerary every day, organise your food and accomodation and book your Free Time Add ons, and because they know everything about where you’re going, you will too. Your Drivers are the experts on getting you from A to B efficiently and safely in Australia & New Zealand. They know their way around like the back of their hands & they’ll drop you at your door & unload your bags for you. Local Guides provide specialist knowledge when you need it, like when you’re journeying into the bush, and will always help you avoid the tourist traps.
