Walkabout…it’s when Australian Aborigines go on a long journey by foot far from cities and towns. Your “walkabout” won’t be on foot and far away from civilization, but it will give you a chance to learn about the Aborigines as well explore some of Australia’s most exciting cities. And no one brings you Australia like Monograms! In this 14-day vacation, we've arranged your choice of hotel accommodations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the airports for all your intra-vacation flights. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature: our Monograms Local Host®, who is there for you in the cities throughout your stays, ensuring everything runs smoothly and helping you get the most out of your trip. You’ll have a Local Host in Sydney, Port Douglas, and Melbourne.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Sydney, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Your Local Host will have a warm welcome for you as well as a packet of materials to help you get settled and start exploring immediately. In both Sydney and Melbourne, we've arranged for a guided sightseeing tour with a local expert. In Sydney, your tour includes stunning Bondi Beach and a photo stop at Harbour Bridge. In Melbourne, we’ll take you to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Albert Park Lake, and more—plus, we’ll entertain you in both cities with insider stories and little-known secrets. A free day in each city gives you the opportunity to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host). Perhaps watch the world-famous Penguin Parade on Phillip Island, visit the Old Melbourne Gaol to see where 130 hangings took place, browse the many shops in Sydney's Darling Harbour, or join celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Cameron Diaz, and Prince Harry in climbing to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

From the laid-back beach town of Port Douglas, we’ll take you on a cruise to Australia's Great Barrier Reef. You'll be able to snorkel, take a semi-submersible watercraft tour, or attend a presentation by a marine biologist. A definite trip highlight!

On this vacation, you’ll also learn about the native cultures. You'll enjoy a visit to the Uluru-Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre with its amazing collection of art and crafts from the Anangu people. Outside of Darwin, we've arranged for a full-day excursion to Kakadu National Park, where a guided walk will show you the ancient Aboriginal rock art, and a visit to the Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre will give you the opportunity to learn about the cultural significance of the park.

With these sights, as well as the other sightseeing we've included and the transportation we've arranged, and the time you save by letting us take care of the details for you, you've got yourself the vacation of a lifetime.
