Explore this underwater world that is a dazzling kaleidoscope of color and brilliance. Choose to snorkel, take a semi-submersible watercraft tour, or attend a presentation by a marine biologist. Late this afternoon, arrive back in Port Douglas. (B,L)|
|Day 4||Port Douglas||A full day at leisure. You might enjoy a trip into the Daintree Rainforest, the world's oldest living rainforest, and to beautiful Cape Tribulation. Other possibilities: hiking, or exploring nearby Mossman Gorge to learn more about the region's Aboriginal people. (B)|
|Day 5||Sydney||Transfer to Cairns for your flight to Sydney. The remainder of the day is at leisure to start exploring this exciting city. (B)|
|Day 6||Sydney||This morning, enjoy a guided sightseeing tour that includes a photo stop at the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and a visit to stunning Bondi Beach, one of Sydney's most beautiful beaches. The remainder of the day is yours to explore this vibrant city. Your Local Host will have suggestions for additional sightseeing, dining, and shopping. (B)|
|Day 7||Sydney||Today, you can explore on your own or choose from a selection of optional activities. You may wish to climb to the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge for unrivaled views; spend the day in Hunter Valley, sampling some of Australia's best wines; or join a guided backstage tour of the Sydney Opera House. (B)|
|Day 8||Sydney||Another day to do as you wish in this beautiful city. You may want to enjoy a cruise on Sydney Harbour and admire stunning views of the city from the water; visit Taronga Zoo to see some of Australia's native animals, such as koalas, kangaroos, and platypuses; shop for souvenirs; or relax on nearby Manly Beach. (B)|
|Day 9||NINGALOO REEF (EXMOUTH)||Today, fly from Sydney (via Perth) to Learmonth Airport in Western Australia. From here, be transferred to your hotel located at the Ningaloo Reef (Exmouth) for a 3-night stay. (B)|
|Day 10||THE NINGALOO REEF (EXMOUTH)||Today enjoy a once-in-a-life time opportunity to glide alongside whale sharks (April-June) or Humpback whales (July-September). Swimming with one of these beautiful creatures is one of life's most breathtaking experiences. Also be on the lookout for other playful creations like manta rays, turtles, dolphins, dugongs, and tropical fish. Whale watchers are welcome onboard as well (those not wanting to snorkel). Return to Exmouth where the remainder of the day is at leisure. (B,L) NOTE:Both whale sharks and Humpback whales are wild creatures. Everything will be done to maximize the likelihood you will swim with a whale, but we cannot guarantee it. Since the whales will continually move, swimming is required to do the interaction. You will need to be a confident swimmer and be able to snorkel and swim freestyle. The whales are found in the open ocean so you may be swimming in currents and swells. If you do not wish to get in the water, you may remain on the boat and watch these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.|
|Day 11||THE NINGALOO REEF (EXMOUTH)||Enjoy a full day at leisure. Take a stroll on the beach or relax at your resort. You may wish to canoe, kayak, or snorkel more of the beautiful Ningaloo Reef on your own. You can also opt to take a guided gorge walk or cast a fishing rod in the nearby waters. Make sure to visit the town's shops for a favorite souvenir and get your photo next to the town's giant prawn statue. A must do! (B)|
|Day 12||Perth||Today, transfer to Learmonth Airport and fly to Perth, Western Australia's capital city. A transfer is provided to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure. (B)|
|Day 13||Perth||Your tour ends with breakfast this morning. (B)|
