Silversea Luxury Cruises À SYDNEY

SYDNEY
SYDNEY

Sydney belongs to the exclusive club of cities that generate excitement. At the end of a marathon flight there's renewed vitality in the cabin as the plane circles the city, where thousands of yachts are suspended on the dark water and the sails of the Opera House glisten in the distance. Blessed with dazzling beaches and a sunny climate, Sydney is among the most beautiful cities on the planet.With 4.6 million people, Sydney is the biggest and most cosmopolitan city in Australia.

A wave of immigration from the 1950s has seen the Anglo-Irish immigrants who made up the city's original population joined by Italians, Greeks, Turks, Lebanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thais, and Indonesians. This intermingling has created a cultural vibrancy and energy—and a culinary repertoire—that was missing only a generation ago.Sydneysiders embrace their harbor with a passion. Indented with numerous bays and beaches, Sydney Harbour is the presiding icon for the city, and urban Australia. Captain Arthur Phillip, commander of the 11-ship First Fleet, wrote in his diary when he first set eyes on the harbor on January 26, 1788: "We had the satisfaction of finding the finest harbor in the world."Although a visit to Sydney is an essential part of an Australian experience, the city is no more representative of Australia than Los Angeles is of the United States. Sydney has joined the ranks of the great cities whose characters are essentially international. What Sydney offers is style, sophistication, and great looks—an exhilarating prelude to the continent at its back door.

Afterward, take an Aboriginal bush tucker tour. Discover the fascinating Indigenous culture, lifestyle, tools and diet, with many species of native bush tucker plants growing on-site.


Lunch, Great Ocean Road, Kennett River, Koala-Viewing

Following your bush tucker tour, proceed for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, re-board your coach and travel along the Great Ocean Road en route to the small hamlet of Kennett River, one of the best places in Australia to observe koalas in the wild. Upon arrival, take a short, guided walk to observe koalas in the gum trees. Although resting during most of the day, by late-afternoon the koalas become more active, eating leaves, grooming or seeking new food trees. If you are lucky, you may spot some at lower levels and see mothers with their babies in the springtime.


Anglesea Golf Course, Grey Kangaroo-Viewing, Sofitel Melbourne Hotel

Next, proceed to the Anglesea Golf Course to get up-close and personal with some eastern grey kangaroos. Kangaroos are highly-habituated to humans here, and your visit offers a rare opportunity to observe and study kangaroos up-close. There are currently 210-270 kangaroos living on the course; one of the highest densities ever recorded for this species. During your visit, take a ride in a golf cart around the course to spot kangaroos. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and head to your hotel in Melbourne City. After check-in, the remainder of the afternoon is at your leisure.


A three-course dinner is at the hotel's restaurant.
