  • Day 1 Sydney to Hunter Valley. Welcome to Sydney! Or Warrane, in the language of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, who are the Traditional Owners of the land on which Sydney is now located. Your adventure starts with a welcome meeting at 9 am at the starting point hotel.?After, you'll head out for a walkabout around The Rocks with a local Aboriginal guide. Walk through Hicksons Reserve, Campbells Cove and Cumberland Walk as your guide teaches you about this area's history, land and water use, and spiritual connection with the First Nations peoples. You'll have amazing views of the harbour along the way, including Sydney Harbour Bridge and the CBD across the water. After your journey into the Dreaming, grab some lunch before heading north to the famous winery region - the beautiful Hunter Valley.?Tonight, you'll visit a local distillery for a gin and vodka tasting and then head to an optional welcome dinner in Cessnock in the heart of the valley to get to know your fellow travellers.
  • Day 2 Hunter Valley to Crowdy Bay National Park to Port Macquarie. Today, you'll continue your exploration of the Hunter Valley region with a visit to a winery for a guided tour and wine tasting. Time permitting, you'll head to another nearby winery where you might like to opt for another tasting. Then, drive to your accommodation just outside of Port Macquarie along the scenic coastal route, stopping at Crowdy Bay National Park along the way to stretch your legs on a short hike - keep your eyes peeled for whales off the coast as you wind your way by secluded coves, beaches and mountains.
  • Day 3 Port Macquarie to Dorrigo National Park to Coffs Harbour. This morning, you'll visit the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie, where you'll meet the volunteers who work there and and learn about how this organisation provides care and treatment for koalas needing rehabilitation. Then, drive to Bellingen, where you might like to grab lunch and enjoy some free time. Continue to Dorrigo National Park via the gorgeous Waterfall Way, known for its lush, sub-tropical rainforest - the last piece of the ancient subcontinent Gondwanaland. Few places on Earth contain so many plants and animals relatively unchanged from their ancestors. Pop into the Rainforest Centre in the park, take a stroll along the skywalk or explore the rainforest with your group.
  • Day 4 Coffs Harbour to Byron Bay. Next up is Byron Bay - a laid-back surf paradise with boundless coastline, sand and friendly locals. But first, you'll start your day with a walking tour of Red Rock with a local First Nations guide. Learn about the culture of the Gumbaynggirr people through stories, songs and the uses of native plants. Walk alongside The Solitary Island Marine Park Waterways and connect with Country as you learn more about the Dreaming and sample some local bush food. After, you'll stop in Yamba where you might like to grab some lunch, before visiting Byron Bay Lighthouse for a unique photo opportunity and the chance to spot some dolphins, whales and other marine life.
  • Day 5 Byron Bay. Get up early this morning if you want to catch the sunrise - they are pretty ace from Australia's most easterly point - but if you prefer, you can sleep in too! Later this morning hit the water with a guided sea kayaking tour of the Byron Bay Marine Park. See the beauty of the coastline while looking out for dolphins, turtles and whales and learning of the marine biology. The afternoon if free to do as you please so maybe hunt down the best cold-brew coffee from one of Byron's quirky cafes, learn how to ride the waves with a beginner's surf lesson, or just hang out on the beach. Tonight, why not grab a drink at one of the local pubs or bars?
  • Day 6 Byron Bay to Springbrook National Park to Gold Coast to Brisbane. This morning, head to The Farm - a collection of micro-businesses on a working farm focusing on growing, feeding and educating through community farming. Maybe grab some breakfast here and pick up a few things to have for lunch later on. Continue to Springbrook National Park and take a short walk to Natural Bridge rock arch which was formed by the force of the waterfall over the basalt cave. This afternoon, head to the famous Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast for some beach time before continuing onto Brisbane where you'll spend the night.
  • Day 7 Brisbane. After a group breakfast this morning, your trip comes to an end in Brisbane. If you'd like to stay longer, just speak to your booking agent.
