A trip Down Under is a bucket list item for many and enjoying the country can depend on how you explore it when you get there. The Telegraph has put together some of the most amazing trips to Oz available, starting with the Great Australian Adventure.
“It's tempting to be over-ambitious, but by joining a well-organized escorted tour, hours spent in domestic departure airports and transfer coaches can be kept to a minimum,” says Telegraph destination expert Sophie Butler.
The Great Australian Adventure, offered by Wendy Wu Tours travels far and wide.
“Tick off the classic sights on this 21-day itinerary which starts with a voyage around Sydney’s harbour for views of the city’s iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge,” writes Butler.
Tastes of South Australia offered by Scenic a great way to experience the country’s vineyards.
“Wine, wildlife and spectacular landscapes are the focus of this 17-day tour which starts in Adelaide, the country’s wine capital, for excursions to the vineyards of the Barossa and the Clare Valley,” says Butler.
Best of the coast: Western Australia from Trailfinders explores the other side of the country.
“Known for its seafood, surfing and sandy beaches, the west coast is wilder and less developed than the east,” notes Butler.
Seeing the Great Barrier Reef is often one of the driving factors behind visitors’ desires to visit Down Under and Cox & Kings offers a 13-day journey that heads there.
“After crossing the Tropic of Capricorn, there's a visit to Fraser Island, Lake McKenzie and Brisbane before the tour winds up at Cape Byron Lighthouse, Australia’s most easterly point,” says Butler.
