Boasting one of the world’s most iconic skylines, crowned by its striking Opera House, Sydney begs to be explored. Your journey will take you to all the hallmark attractions, including the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens, and famed Bondi Beach. However, you’ll also explore hidden streets and less-traveled neighborhoods for a real glimpse at how ‘SydneySiders’ live and where they hang out. You’ll also venture beyond the cosmopolitan streets to the breathtaking Blue Mountains and a rainforest adventure that explores the dense jungle by Skyway, on foot, and aboard the world’s steepest incline railway.

Visas are required to enter Australia. Visa must be obtained prior to arrival. Guests without a valid visa for Australia will not be permitted to travel and will be in 100% cancellation penalty. All Passport details should be confirmed at the time of booking. Sales of this program close 90 days prior: book early to avoid disappointment, as space is limited.

Highlights

Royal Botanic Gardens: Stroll this waterfront oasis of gardens that also offers spectacular views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair: This exposed sandstone rock overlooking the harbour was carved into a bench by convicts in 1811 and is a favorite local treasure.

Bondi Beach: Watch local surfers carve up the waves at this legendary beach lined with cafés and local shops.

Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs: Connect with local life exploring a number of different local hamlets, including Double Bay, Rose Bay and Neilson Park.

The Gap: Snap panoramic photos from this dramatic ocean cliff on Sydney’s South Head peninsula.

Sydney Sky Tower: Soak up panoramic views from the second-tallest observation tower in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Day 1
    Arrive in Sydney
    Read More +

    Arrive in Sydney and meet your driver at the airport. Check into your hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure. Set out to get your first taste of Sydney. Take a leisurely stroll along the harbour, or, make your way to ‘The Rocks’, a historic neighborhood and favorite local playground known for its street food, lively pubs and talented buskers. Regroup at the hotel and join your fellow travelers for a kick-off buffet dinner at Kitchen on Kent within the hotel (interactive experience) including 2 glasses of beer, wine or soft drink.

  • Day 2
    Explore Sydney
    Read More +

    Begin with a drive down Macquarie Street as your guide provides insight into Sydney’s history. Stop for a stroll at the Royal Botanic Gardens, where you’ll enjoy great photo opportunities of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Continue to Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair and learn the story behind this stone bench overlooking the harbour. Then, set off to discover the local charms of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Stop for tea and snacks, including a taste of Vegemite, before visiting The Gap, a majestic ocean cliff, and Bondi Beach, Sydney’s famed surfing hangout. Afterwards, return to the hotel or get dropped off along the waterfront to continue exploring on your own.

  • Day 3
    Blue Mountains
    Read More +

    Today, leave bustling Sydney behind and journey to the Blue Mountains. These forested peaks get their name from the blue haze created by a dense cover of eucalyptus trees. At Scenic World, you’ll explore the rainforest on an adventure that soars above the canopy by Skyway, hikes along a boardwalk, and rumbles through the foliage on the steepest incline railway in the world. Hold on and have fun! Leaving the Blue Mountains, visit Featherdale Wildlife Park, where you just might get to pet an adorable koala. Make a quick stop at Sydney Olympic Park, site of the 2000 games, where you’ll board the ferry bound for the city.

  • Day 4
    Begin Your Azamara® Voyage
    Read More +

    Following breakfast, continue your exploration beginning with the most panoramic views in the city. Zoom to the top of the Sydney Sky Tower and take in the views from 915 feet above the streets. Head back down to embrace the bohemian attitude of King’s Cross, once the city’s red light district and still enjoying somewhat of a free-spirited edge. Continue through Paddington and Sydney’s Chinatown on your way to Darling Harbour, the city’s lively entertainment district. Your last stop is The Rocks, a neighborhood of historic laneways tucked in the shadow of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Take it all in before heading to the port to begin your Azamara voyage.
