Discover the allure of Australia's East Coast and get an authentic taste of its most exciting experience on this 12-day tour from Sydney to the Whitsunday Islands. Along the way, get the chance to surf, go on a 4-wheel drive adventure, learn about Aboriginal culture, and sail past idyllic islands.

Begin your journey by crossing the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and driving out of the city to the surfing haven of Crescent Head. Stay in the area until the next day, enjoying wine tasting a surfing lesson, before heading to Byron Bay. The cosy, down-to-earth town is yours to explore for a couple days, and then it's off to the Gold Coast. From the Gold Coast, leave the shore behind and travel for an overnight stay on Fraser Island, where you can take a 4-wheel drive adventure along its sandy terrain.

Back on the East Coast, head to Myella Farm for a taste of authentic farm life, including the chance to milk cows and ride horses. The next day, on your way to the Whitsunday Islands, stop at Emu Park to learn about Aboriginal culture and traditions. When you arrive at the Whitsunday Islands, board a yacht and spend the next few days cruising past brilliant white beaches on pristine waters. Spend some time at Daydream Island, taking advantage of the sunny paradise by swimming, sailing, and just relaxing. Your 12-day adventure comes to an end as you arrive finally at idyllic Airlie Beach, where you bid your group farewell.
