In case you hadn’t noticed, Australia is an awfully big place. So big, in fact, that you’d need to come back a few times to get it all. Don’t have that kind of time? Hop aboard this 14-day trip down Australia’s East Coast and make the most of the time you do have. Offering a solid mix of must-do experiences and uncommon adventures, you’ll learn to surf at Byron Bay, sail the Whitsundays and trek through Mossman Gorge in the Daintree Rainforest. The best part: there’s still plenty more to come back for.
