There’s just something about mountains that draw us to them regardless of where we are in the world, and the Blue Mountains is no different.

While not actually blue in colour, the majestic Blue Mountains and its surroundings may appear blue due to the haze that blankets it. This “blue haze” is caused by the droplets of Eucalyptus oil in the air combined with dust particles.

While you’re here, you can be sure to enjoy the cool, fresh air and learn about the legends behind the famous Three Sisters rock formation.

 

DAY 2: Sightsee your way through this iconic harbour city by…

Visiting Mrs. Macquerie’s Chair

In case you didn’t know, Mrs. Macquerie (a.k.a. Elizabeth or Lady Macquerie) was the wife of Governor Lachlan Macquerie from over 150 years ago. Mrs. Macquerie was known to frequent this very spot to enjoy the majestic, panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and the mountains in the distance.

In view of this, the historic chair which was carved out of a rock ledge was then named after her and visitors can now visit Mrs. Macquerie’s Chair anytime and enjoy the same view.

 

Dropping by the Opera House

After you’ve gotten a good view of the Opera House (from afar), it’s time to get up close and personal with it! Get right on the steps of the Opera House and take amazing photos amidst its iconic fin-shaped architecture.

 

Then take a Ferry to Watsons Bay

Arguably one of the most famous beaches in Sydney, you can expect an amazing time here. If you’re up for a walk, be sure to give the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk a try. We promise you’ll enjoy the view!

Beyond the beachfront strip, Campbell Parade, also lies a village of cafes, restaurants, and designer shops. This is where many locals often dedicate their entire weekend to the “Bondi Bubble”. Take photos of the well-known Bondi Icebergs pool while you’re at it.

 

DAY 3: Enjoy a free and easy day where you can create your own adventure

In case it hasn’t hit you yet, Sydney truly is a bustling city full of possibilities! The great thing about this Contiki itinerary is that it caters to young travellers and therefore offers plenty of free time as well for you to explore Sydney yourself.

Not sure where to start your adventure? Well, what are you on the lookout for? Are you a budding wine connoisseur? Think wine tastings. Prefer a relaxing day chilling and taking in the sights? Think sunset cruise on the harbour. An adrenaline junkie looking for non-stop action? Think jetboat rides. An active go-getter even on holidays? Think biking through the city for a different perspective of Sydney!

In fact, you can even pick one, or two, or all of the above activities from Contiki’s affordable add-ons!

 

BYRON BAY

 

DAY 4: Take a flight from Sydney to Byron Bay and dive right into an included surfing lesson

Can’t get enough of the beach? Then Byron Bay is where you need to be. A coastal town on the far north coast of New South Wales, Byron Bay sits in a region known for its spectacular beaches, unique shopping and dining experiences, as well as its vibrant community.

With its pristine northern climate and reliable surf breaks, Byron is definitely a haven for locals, surfing legends and even first-time surfers! With professional instructors around, you’ll also be a pro yourself in no time.

 

DAY 5: Continue with the surf vibes, explore Byron like a local, or take part in a yoga session

Experience a peaceful and rejuvenating yoga session on the beach of Byron Bay! Imagine busting some Yoga moves on the soft white sand while you listen to waves crashing in the distance. So peaceful!

Or opt to join the Sunrise Lighthouse Tour where you will roll out of bed before the sun rises and make it in time to catch nature’s spectacular show as the sun makes its appearance sweeping over the land and sea.

For beer lovers, a beer tasting at Byron Bay’s homegrown brewery is a must where you get to taste Ozzy handcrafted beers.
