Australia and Olivia Newton-John. They go hand-in-hand, even more than Olivia and John Travolta. According to her song lyrics, “...there's no place that I'd rather be. Yes, it's always Australia for me.” We’re sure you’ll feel the same way as Olivia after you experience this 15-day Australia vacation. Monograms has handled all the details, so you can just enjoy yourself (and maybe brush up on your Olivia song lyrics). In this package, we've arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast (plus one lunch), sightseeing, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports. Plus, we've arranged for you to have a Local Host®—someone who is there for you to answer questions, offer suggestions, help you personalize your trip, and make sure your vacation runs smoothly—in Cairns, Melbourne, and Sydney.

In Melbourne and Sydney, we've arranged for you to enjoy guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who will share insider stories and tell you what it's like to live in these cities. In Melbourne, we’ll take you to Albert Park Lake, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Queen Victoria Market, and more. In Sydney, your guided sightseeing tour includes the Opera House and Bondi Beach, the most famous beach in Sydney.

In each city, we've also arranged for you to have a free day to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). In Cairns, perhaps take an excursion to the Daintree Rainforest or visit one of the many night markets popular with locals and visitors alike. In Adelaide, perhaps take an excursion to Barossa Valley for wine tasting or visit Rundle Street East for a meal at one of the many cafés and restaurants. Melbourne offers many exciting activities, including the world-famous Penguin Parade. In Sydney, perhaps take a cruise on Sydney Harbour, wander around the cobblestone streets of the Rocks, or climb to the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge.

It's not just the cities you'll experience on this vacation; we’ll also take you to some of Australia's most amazing natural sights. From Cairns, we've arranged a cruise to Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Here, you can choose to snorkel, take a semi-submersible watercraft tour, or join in a presentation by a marine biologist. Photos cannot capture the beauty and vibrancy of the Great Barrier Reef. You must experience it yourself! But that's not all…we’ll also take you to Uluru (Ayers Rock), where you’ll visit the impressive Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre. Additionally, you'll enjoy drinks and canapés while you witness the sunset at Kata Tjuta (the Olgas)—a spectacular sight indeed!

Not to be missed is Kangaroo Island, a pristine wilderness offering protection to many of Australia's native animals. From Adelaide, we've arranged for you to travel to the island and visit Seal Bay with a national park ranger to see a colony of rare Australian sea lions.

With the sightseeing and hotels we’ve arranged, you save time and stress of trying to plan this trip of a lifetime for yourself! Let Monograms handle the details, so all you have to do is pack your bags and enjoy.
