A U S T R A L I A
Australia, not a country but a continent itself: Australia is the 6th largest country in the world, occupying a territory of 7 692 024 sq. km, which is more than the size of ALL European Union countries. Yet it has one of the lowest population densities in the world of only 3.1 people/km. Australia is on a lot of people’s shortlist of places to go but it is huge and can be hard to know where to begin.
You aren’t going to see everything in a single trip to Australia, but you can see a lot of the highlights.
This 1500+ km road journey from Sydney to Melbourne (including Great Ocean Road) will blow your mind with its pristine beaches and unique coastline.

Day 1: Sydney
Sydney is the first stop on many Australian itineraries, and for good reason. It’s an inviting blend of the exhilarating and easygoing. You can find excitement in the city, but drive just a few kilometres and you’ll hit the golden sand of famous beaches like Bondi and Manly. Plus, with endless nature at its doorstep, Sydney is the starting point for day trips serving up the fresh air, unique flavours and locals who know a thing or two about living life to the fullest.
The construction of Sydney Tower is an interesting tale of engineering and quality construction. Pre-made individual barrel units formed the shaft of the tower and the four levels of the turret structure were constructed at the base of the shaft and raised to the top as work progressed.
The shaft supporting the turret is made up of 46 barrels units, each weighing 27 tonnes. These were brought on to the site in seven pieces and welded together. Once the first three sections were in place, a gantry crane was erected to hoist the remaining 43 barrel units.Each barrel unit was completed with lift rails, stairwells and hydraulic risers before hoisting. The shaft contains two sets of fire stairs, fire, electrical and plumbing ducts in one half and the lift shafts in the remainder. This is one of the most important monuments in Sydney.
Day 2: Hyams Beach
Hyams Beach is a seaside village in the City of Shoalhaven, New South Wales, Australia, on the shores of Jervis Bay. At the 2016 census, it had a population of 112.
Day 3 & 4: Mount Kosciuszko
Day 5: Mount Oberon
Day 6: Phillip Island
Phillip Island, a popular day trip from Melbourne, lies just off Australia’s southern coast. At Summerland Beach, spectators gather daily at sunset to watch the Penguin Parade, when Little penguins come ashore in groups. The Nobbies outcrop is the viewing site for Seal Rocks, home to a large colony of Australian fur seals. The Phillip Island Circuit is a well-known track for motorcycle and car racing.
Day 7,8 & 9: Great Ocean Road
Victoria’s dramatic south-west coastline covers an incredible range of scenery. See the world-famous waves at Bells Beach or laze on the sand at Anglesea. Visit the charming old fishing village of Port Fairy and get among the buzzing arts community in Lorne. Of course, you can’t miss the 12 Apostles. These craggy limestone stacks rising majestically from the Southern Ocean are a must-see. Join a scenic flight with 12 Apostles Helicopters to see the Bay of Islands, London Bridge or the entire Shipwreck Coast all the way to Australia’s oldest lighthouse at Cape Otway.
We will be exploring each and every beach on this wonderful road for 3 days.
Day 10 & 11: Melbourne
Melbourne is the coastal capital of the southeastern Australian state of Victoria. At the city’s centre is the modern Federation Square development, with plazas, bars, and restaurants by the Yarra River. In the Southbank area, the Melbourne Arts Precinct is the site of Arts Centre Melbourne – a performing arts complex – and the National Gallery of Victoria, with Australian and indigenous art.
We will end our road trip to Melbourne and explore this beautiful city and have some leisure time for ourselves.
