2 Day Australian High Country Tour

from $339




What a capital tour! This is simply the best way to travel between elegant Melbourne and vibrant Sydney (or in reverse), because you see so many iconic sights on the way.

The Victorian Alps, the Great Dividing Range, vast forests and mighty rivers. Learn about some great Australian legends: Ned
Kelly and the infamous bushrangers (outlaws) and the frenetic Australian gold rush of the 1850s around Beechworth. Ned Kelly stood trial for murder here, but the town is now equally famous for its abundant local produce.
Stay overnight on a genuine working farm, talking with the family, learning about farm life, meeting the wildlife and farm animals. Then it’s on to the nation’s stately capital of Canberra, with its history, imposing Parliament House, museums, art galleries and memorials. Your tour ends in Sydney, then you can independently explore this fabulous city with its Opera House beside the sea.
