There’s a collection of places, structures and natural phenomenon that find themselves on popular buckets lists. We’d suggest you start that list earlier rather than later – there’s a lot you may want to revisit!
A UNESCO World Heritage site described as ‘A great urban sculpture set in a remarkable waterscape, at the tip of a peninsula projecting into Sydney Harbour’. You can view it from the water, you can take a guided tour inside or you see a performance in one of the auditoriums. You will be in good company as 2,000 people take the tour annually and around 2million attend performances. You’ll find a cabaret, circus, classical, comedy, contemporary, family, dance, musical theatre, opera and even FREE shows!
Don’t put the Great Barrier Reef on your bucket list, it’s far to moreish to do only once. The Great Barrier Reef is actually a chain of around 3000 reefs and 900 islands, some flawless, Crusoe types, some wild Jungle Book varieties. Organised journeys can now make Australia easily ‘do-able’ as a regular 10 or 14-day holiday. What will scupper your trip, however, is an over-ambitious or badly planned plan – so let us do what we do best and help you with that!
A natural phenomenon, a mile deep and ten miles wide; you may be awestruck by its vastness or mystified by it natural spirituality.

There’s more to consider that first meets the eye when planning a visit to the Grandest of all Canyons.
