The Destination
A cosmopolitan metropolis with a casual attitude, Sydney's coastal setting allows for sophisticated glamour and laid-back ruggedness to combine in ways that constantly surprise all who visit. The icon of this New South Wales city is unquestionably the Sydney Opera House—poised on the banks of the harbor and meant to evoke the billowing sails floating offshore, its graphic architecture has become a visual shorthand for the city and the rest of Australia. Surf the waves of Bondi Beach, shop the high-end boutiques on Oxford Street, and sip late-night drinks in Darling Harbour—the city's attitude may be relaxed, but its energy is sky-high.

After your time in Sydney, continue to discover Down Under by embracing the cultures of Adelaide and Melbourne like a local—through your taste buds. Have a drink in Adelaide, where more than half of Australia's wine is produced. From there, it's a short hop to Kangaroo Island, a sanctuary of native Australian wildlife. For your main course, it's off to Melbourne to sample its unique international cuisine—nearly a third of the city's residents were born abroad and the diverse population has made for exotic menus in the city's many bohemian cafes.

The Itinerary
day 1: Board your flight from the US to Sydney.

day 2: You will lose this calendar day crossing the International Date Line, but get it back on your return trip.

days 3, 4, 5, and 6: Touch down in Sydney, where you'll have four days to explore the city at your leisure. Once you've seen the Opera House, head to the Sydney Harbour Bridge to take a quintessential Sydney pic. You could explore the wild side of the city with a trip to Botany Bay National Park and the Sydney Aquarium. When it's dinnertime, you'll find that Sydney has much to offer foodies, whether you want to sample meals from celebrity chefs or just want to duck into a harbor-view cafe for fresh seafood.

Four nights at the Travelodge Sydney. Daily breakfast provided.

day 7: Fly to Adelaide and check into your hotel before heading out to discover the city as you please.

Three nights at Chifley on South Terrace. Daily breakfast provided.

day 8: Board your Sea Link coach and ferry to Kangaroo Island, where you'll go on the included Sea Link tour of this animal-lover's paradise. Seals and dolphins roam the waters, while land exploration could yield a sighting of koalas, wallabies, and of course, the island's namesake.

day 9: Back in Adelaide, explore the arts scene of this multicultural city at your own pace. Taste the numerous varietals of local wine before finding unique snacks at Adelaide's 250-stall Central Market. Get rowdy with a beer at Exeter or live music at the Gracie—or have a quiet day in the Art Gallery of South Australia, which offers free guided tours.

days 10, 11, 12, and 13: Fly to Melbourne, where the four days in this unique city are yours to spend as you choose. Perhaps you could visit the Melbourne Cricket Ground—known as "The G" to locals—and buy a tour to see the largest stadium in the country and one of the world's most renowned cricket venues. Relax under 100-year-old trees in Flagstaff Gardens, or enjoy a lively meal in Queen Victoria Market, where visitors can find everything from fresh produce to fast food.

Four nights at the Travelodge Southbank. Daily breakfast provided.

day 14: Return to the Melbourne airport to board your flight back to the US.
