Classic Sydney & Great Barrier Reef

Perfect for a pre or post-cruise adventure – This package can only be booked in conjunction with a confirmed Travel Team Downunder cruise booking!


Visit two of the most popular parts of Australia, particularly for first-time visitors. Cairns – gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and harbourside Sydney. See the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and more and swim in the Great Barrier Reef

This essential, 7-day introduction to Australia takes you to its most iconic city and its largest living wonder. It’s the perfect taster for future trips Downunder.

Begin in Sydney, where the familiar frame of the Sydney Harbour Bridge greets you overlooking the iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House.  Of course, the best way to experience Sydney is on the harbour itself. With a hop-on, hop-off cruise ticket in hand, you can do just that, with two days to explore Luna Park, Watsons Bay, Manly, Fort Denison, Shark Island, Darling Harbour, and the famous Taronga Zoo. You’ll have a full day at leisure to pick up the sights you missed before flying to Cairns.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s great natural treasures that must be seen to be believed. Your Quicksilver cruise to the outer reef gives you the opportunity to snorkel, dive (extra cost), ride a semi-submersible sub, watch fish feeding, or even take a helicopter ride over the reef (extra cost). Suffice to say, it’s an unforgettable day, but it’s not the only thing to see or do from Cairns.

Spend one more day at leisure in Cairns before you depart.
