Reasons you should explore the east coast of Australia with Intrepid Travel. “If you’ve only got a week of holidays up your sleeve, you should book a flight to Sydney and do Intrepid Travel’s Sydney to Brisbane Northbound tour.
Why? Because it’s an amazing trip, and Australia is an amazing country. Here are seven reasons to add it to your Down Under diary.
1. Explore the heart and soul of Australia
The start and end cities are the largest and third-largest cities in Australia; they both easily accessible to all parts of the world.
Sydney is very beautiful and feels inspiring. Just walking along the Darling Harbour and watching the seagulls sitting on their perch whilst the rush of mankind melts into the CBD is bliss.
Another great way to see the unseen side of Sydney is to take an Urban Adventure tour. I did the Eat, Drink and Walk Sydney tour and I was pleasantly surprised by the hidden treasures of Sydney’s CBD, in less than four or five blocks. I won’t spoil the surprise, but you should check it out; your evening would be well spent.
Brisbane, on the other hand, sits pretty on the Brisbane River. With its South Bank and culture, you know you’ve hit the perfect balance between the hustle and bustle of a big city and the laid-back Queensland charm. You can walk over to Queens Street for some lip-smacking grub and then take a long walk over the Story Bridge and along the river until you hit the Wheel of Brisbane, a 60-meter-high Ferris wheel.
