Enjoy free time to explore this dynamic city on your own during your three-night stay, before flying to spectacular Uluru (Ayers Rock). Watch the sunset fall across this mystical formation, take in the magnificent Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) and enjoy an authentic Outback barbecue. Depart for Cairns, the “Gateway to the Barrier Reef,” and take an excursion to explore the reef by snorkel or glass-bottom boat.
Enjoy a full day to explore Cairns on your own, with a number of ways to enjoy this tropical paradise. Take in the view overlooking Trinity Inlet, or cool off with a swim in the saltwater Esplanade Lagoon. Visit Koala Gardens before returning to Sydney to board your 14-night Holland America cruise. . .
