$1299 – Australia: 6 Nights in Sydney w/Flights, Save $1000
New South Wales has it all -- from Sydney to beaches to the Outback to wine country.
Yes, it is possible to have a full Australia experience in a week. The trick is to spend all 7 days in the state of New South Wales, home to must-see wildlife, beaches, cuisine, culture and landscapes.
Make Sydney your home base and take easy day trips from there with this $1299 per-person package that includes:
- Nonstop, roundtrip flights from Los Angeles to Sydney on Virgin Australia
- 6 nights in a 4-star hotel located walking distance to the bay, shops and restaurants
- Roundtrip airport transfers in Sydney
- All taxes and fees
Depart: Mondays-Thursdays, April 2 - July 12; +$55 for transpacific flights departing Fridays-Sundays. These dates include Vivid Sydney (May 25 - June 16), the world's largest festival of light installations, music and ideas.
This package is based on double occupancy and priced with departures from Los Angeles. Departures from 13 other cities are available for $190-$485 more per person. See the Down Under Answers site for the full list of departure gateways.
Travelzoo Tips: With 7 days in Sydney, we recommend exploring Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House on the first day; it's an easy way to get the city layout. On the days following, keep busy with a number of activities, such as hanging with kangaroos and koalas at Taronga Zoo, surfing at Bondi Beach or climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
You may want to take a day trip or two to regional New South Wales. While there, taste wines in the Hunter Valley, ride a camel through Australia's largest sand dunes, see Aboriginal art in the stunning Blue Mountains or trek through the rain forest to the top of Mount Tomaree. Everything is an easy two- to three-hour drive from Sydney, but you can also book a guided day tour with transportation included.
