11-Nights Melbourne Rock and Reef

With Melbourne's combination of world-class dining, art galleries, homegrown fashion and a packed sports calendar, it's no surprise Victoria's capital is regarded the world’s most livable city.

Uluru, or Ayers Rock, is a massive sandstone monolith in the heart of the Northern Territory’s arid "Red Centre". The nearest large town is Alice Springs, 450km away. Uluru is sacred to indigenous Australians and is thought to have started forming around 550 million years ago.

Cairns, considered the gateway to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, is a city in tropical Far North Queensland. Cairns Esplanade, lined in bars and restaurants, has a swimming lagoon.
