Golden Coast of Pacific Ocean

From 2600 eur

Country, island or continent? Australia is all of these and has on offer a wide range of attractions: heavenly beaches, cosmopolitan cities, kangaroos, deserts, coral reefs, the famous Sydney Opera House and a whole lot more. 

The route from Sydney to Brisbane tells the story of Australia in a nutshell. In the diverse and modern city of Sydney, situated in a picturesque natural harbour, you'll find three icons of Australia: the Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and Bondi Beach. Driving along the coast, you'll be able to take your pick of all kinds of beaches – urban chic or exotic wildlife, the choice is yours! After that, Brisbane is your gateway to the coral reefs, the Bush and Koala bears. In a word, the essence of the subtropical part of the continent. Moreover, in the homeland of the Aborigines, you'll get a chance to have a go at surfing, diving in the coral reefs or soaking in delightful sunsets on the beach.

Travel plan




Departure from Europe to the Land of the Kangaroos.


Getting to know Sydney

From the airport you straightaway pick up a rental car, giving you complete independence as it allows you to easily access the most beautiful beaches that buses don't reach. You'll also come across plenty of kangaroos on the way too.

You start your trip by exploring Sydney. If the idea of urban chic, stunning landscapes, scenic beaches and sun-kissed bodies all brought together in one place is your idea of heaven, you won't want to leave! You can start your day surfing in the city centre, followed by fresh seafood on the beach at lunchtime and spend the afternoons wandering around world-class museums and shopping centres. Before going out for drinks in the cosmopolitan city centre, it's a good idea to relax while enjoying the suburban beaches’ stunning sunsets. 


Transfer to Port Macquarie

On the drive along the Southern Pacific coast up to Port Macquarie, you'll spot not only amazing beaches, but also several National Parks and Aboriginal Reserves. On arrival at Port Macquarie, there's a lot more waiting for you than just the heavenly beaches where the Bush meets the ocean. We highly recommend visiting the Koala Hospital or trekking with a local Aborigine guide who will show you every part of the virgin jungle. 


Coffs Harbour

After driving another 160 km up the picturesque Australian coast, you'll find yourself in Coffs Harbour. This is the hub of leisure activities in this part of the country. The landscape of the Pacific Ocean is inspiring for both travellers and locals and it's possible to do all kinds of water sports: canoeing on the river in the city centre, diving in the Solitary Islands Marine Park or simply renting a kayak. We recommend Coffs Harbour especially to fans of sailing. In the evening, it's best to relax in the hotel swimming pool with a view of the sunset or on the beach with a barbecue.


The cult Byron Bay

Two hours drive along the ocean will take you to the cult town of Byron Bay, a symbol of the Australia's alternative lifestyle. The unique vibe of the place, cheerfulness and charisma of the locals can easily turn your 3-day stay into a week or even month long one. Add glorious beaches, incredibly good places for surfing and delicious food and we will be happy to rebook your flights for a week later...


Exploring Brisbane

Brisbane is the capital of subtropical Australia. Among impressive skyscrapers and historic buildings, Brisbanites go kayaking, rock climbing, jogging, surfing or they just relax on the palm tree-wreathed beaches. Feel free to join them and taste the spirit and pleasure of the urban-beach lifestyle!
