We begin our Aussie adventure in Sydney, a bustling metropolis and cultural capital of Australia. From our phenomenal lodging in the “Rocks” district of Sydney, we are welcomed to Australia by Sydney’s sights and stunning views! We begin the Australia's Best trip with a walking tour of the Sydney Harbor. Together, we explore the landmarks and sites of Sydney including the iconic Sydney Opera House and Harbor Bridge. Next, we visit the iconic Australia Zoo, home to the best animals in Australia. On our last day in Sydney take the famous Manly Ferry under the Harbour Bridge and to the iconic Manly Beach where we spend the day surfing and enjoy a beach barbecue! We then take the train north to Byron Bay!
Arriving at Byron Bay, Bold Earth has reached the surf capital of Australia! Byron Bay’s warm, candy blue water, white-sand beaches and perfect waves allow Bold Earth campers to master their surf skills. Using local, professional guides, we hang ten and look for the dolphins that are common along the beach. Entering Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, Bold Earth campers experience the surf culture and natural beauty that is Brisbane. From Brisbane, Australia’s Best teen trip visits Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island and a UNESCO Heritage Site. Two nights are spent camping on the beach, while exploring the beaches, rain forests and lakes by ATV. The perfect beaches and the perfect climate - Fraser Island is a highlight! Before traveling further north, Bold Earth spends a night at a rustic cattle station, experiencing the beauty of the outback and the hospitality of Australians!
Sailing on the Whitsunday Islands is incredible and one of Bold Earth’s most highly rated activities! We embark on a 3-day yacht sailing adventure from Mackay to Airlie Beach. Sailing through the pristine Whitsunday Islands, we snorkel in coral reefs, swim with sea turtles and enjoy the beauty of our 84ft boat. Bold Earth then travels by train to Cairns, spending a day snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef and rafting on the Tully River. This is an action-packed way to end Bold Earth's Australia's Best trip!
Time between trips is fully supervised and included at no additional cost.

Australia's Best was an amazing experience. I met friends from all over the world and had adventures I could have only imagined before. I would like to thank Bold Earth and my Trip Leaders for this incredible summer!
PARENTS, Joe-Anne & Norman: We were extremely happy with the entire Bold EArth process. Australia's Best was easy and low-stress as far as the paperwork, bookings and trip preparation. The notifications and updates were helpful prior to the trip. (Trip Leader) Henry's telephone communications were really appreciated. Taylor expressed to us how motivating and enthusiastic Henry was during the entire trip. Australia’s Best was a fantastic experience for Taylor and will continue to have a positive impact on her life.
