The Best of the Red Centre & Eastern Australia tour starts in Melbourne and ends in Sydney and NSW. The Best of the Red Centre & Eastern Australia is an explorer tour that takes 25 days taking you from Melbourne to Sydney and NSW and through other destinations in Australia.

Australia is over 7 million sq km (4.35 sq mi) of sand, reef, rock, koala, wine, sailing, ocean, city, culture, Dreamtime, and so much more than we could possibly list here. It would take several lifetimes to explore it all. This sprawling 25-day adventure comes pretty close, though. Kick things off in cosmopolitan Melbourne by discovering the city's hidden laneways. Then head up the Great Ocean Road to a couple of national parks before journeying deep into the fabled Outback for a rendezvous with the iconic Uluru. Next, meet the Great Barrier Reef from Cape Tribulation, cruise the glorious Whitsundays, visit a G Adventures-supported cultural centre, learn to surf, and explore Sydney. Exhausted yet? Just wait’ll you’re actually there!

“This trip was absolutely incredible. You got a real taste of all the different cultures, cuisines and how life in each country would be. The places we visited were both iconic and hidden treasures. There were both fast paced, hectic and slow paced, relaxed days. The experience overall was great, the food, the accommodation, the group and the price met or exceeded expectations”
