Perth

After touching down in Perth, you’ll be met by your A&K chauffeur and whisked away to your hotel. Enjoy a well-deserved rest, or freshen up and head out to explore this lively metropolis on Australia’s west coast.

Perth

This morning, make your way to Perth’s Victorian Gothic-style Town Hall to begin your shared Morning Tea Walking Tour. During your two-hour jaunt around Western Australia’s capital, learn about Perth’s rich history from your knowledgeable guide. Visit secret gardens, repurposed heritage buildings and art galleries, stopping off to sup a tea or coffee at a trendy café along the way. After your tour, explore The State Buildings at the heart of Cathedral Square.

Perth

Today is all yours. Why not walk down to Bather’s Beach and paddle in the warm blue Indian Ocean. Or catch a ferry ride to Rottnest Island and spot adorable quokka in one of the few places they call home. Wander the tree-lined pathways in Kings Park, which includes an 18-hectare botanic garden. They’re all within easy reach of your hotel.

Perth – Adelaide

After a flight from Perth Airport to Adelaide, you’re driven to the five-star Mayfair Hotel, your home for the next two nights. Freshen up, then head out to explore the city independently. Capital of Australia’s south, Adelaide is a thriving metropolis famed for its wine and food. Flit between the galleries, bars and leafy gardens of this eclectic destination, nicknamed “The City of Churches” for its steeple-laden skyline.

Adelaide

Saddle up and pedal out to the beautiful Barossa Valley for a half-day cycling tour. Home to high-altitude vineyards and sprawling conservation parks, the sun-washed valley draws visitors from far and wide. Pause to enjoy the view across the Barossa Ranges before gently descending to the valley floor to sample Adelaidean wine and cheese. Cool off back at your hotel, then venture out on your own to see everything else Adelaide has to offer.

Adelaide - Hobart

After flying to Hobart, Tasmania’s capital is yours to explore. Sample local beer at one of the city’s lively bars, chow down on fresh fish and chips harbourside, or saunter around trendy galleries including the eclectic Museum of Old and New Art (MONA for short) on the edge of the Berriedale peninsula.

Hobart

Discover Hobart by foot on a three-hour shared walk around this compact city. As you amble past Hobart’s heritage-listed buildings, hear the fascinating history of this waterfront capital from your experienced guide. Wander by the sandstone properties of Salamanca Place and wind through the famous suburb of Battery Point.

Hobart - Melbourne

Fly from Hobart Airport into cosmopolitan Melbourne. The city is Australia’s second largest, and always offers a warm welcome to visitors. After checking in to your hotel for a quick freshen up, hit the streets to experience this vibrant cultural hub yourself. Sample Aussie as well as international cuisine in the popular food precincts, and laze in the lush parklands dotted between Melbourne’s impressive skyscrapers.

Melbourne

Discover an insider’s view of Melbourne on your private Arcades & Alleyways walking tour. This two-hour expedition leads you through the city’s labyrinth of atmospheric arcades and alleyways. Discover lanes filled with trendy cafés and boutiques as well as unusual street art. Pause to admire Melbourne’s iconic Victorian buildings – a contrast to the sleek skyscrapers they share the skyline with. There’s also a chance to hop on one of the much-loved trams to ride like a local. Afterwards, put your feet up at your hotel or head out to explore more of this dynamic city.

Melbourne – Mornington Peninsula - Melbourne

One hour from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is one of Australia’s only maritime wine regions. Spend a full day discovering the food and wine of this unique locale surrounded by the ocean. Stop first in Yabby Lake Vineyard to sip the fresh vino that typifies this region, before sampling from the cellars of Stonier Wines. Midway, fill up on a two-course lunch expertly paired with a glass or two of the best Mornington has to offer. Then it’s off to visit two more cellar doors before returning to your hotel for the night.

Melbourne - Sydney

Swapping one world-renowned city with another, fly in to sunny Sydney, where you’ll spend the remainder of your holiday. Offload at your hotel, then head out to explore “The Harbour City” solo. Dubbed “the town” by Sydneysiders, the Central Business District is a cultural hot spot and the financial hub of the city, and warrants a visit. Or why not wet your feet strolling along Bondi beach, popular with surfers and sunbathers alike. Night or day, there’s always something to do in the buzzing capital of New South Wales.

Sydney

Leaning on the knowledge of an expert guide, see a different side of Sydney during a Culture Scouts tour of the city’s hidden gems. While you explore some of the lesser-travelled suburbs, squeeze into cosy bars and niche galleries and enjoy local food and fresh coffee. The work of Sydney’s most prolific street artists is showcased along the way, adorning building facades and alleyways. Afterwards, unwind with local brews, cocktails, wine, cheese and nibbles loved by the locals.

Sydney - UK

Check out of your hotel with luggage in hand and unforgettable memories in mind, before flying out of Sydney Airport on your journey home.
