The phrase ‘city breaks’ often conjures up images of New York, Paris or Rome, all culturally rich cities with plenty to see and do, why then do Australian city breaks often get overlooked? The distance and flight-time can of course be a factor, but holiday makers would be well advised to consider some of Australia’s cosmopolitan, vibrant cities. Sydney is a prime example, and although world-renowned for its famous Opera House building, it has plenty more to offer besides. A hot spot for food, shopping, arts and events with the Harbour Bridge as a stunning backdrop, Sydney has the clout to compete with traditional favourites when it comes to city breaks.
Those wishing to explore this city and all its hidden gems can now take advantage of great offers from Austravel, three nights in Sydney followed by three nights exploring the Great Barrier Reef can be enjoyed from just £899 per person departing on 12th November 2012. The price includes flights with Etihad, a three night stay at the three-star Cambridge Sydney hotel and three nights at the three star Cairns Colonial Club, both luxurious bed & breakfast venues that will make your stay comfortable and relaxing.
Cairns is a fantastic base for those looking to get in touch with Australia’s natural wonders, from here the great barrier reef, one of the world’s most spectacular under-water sights, can be explored by diving or snorkelling around the reef. If extending a stay beyond 3 days, It is also possible to sail to the Whitsundays, a cluster of beautiful, unspoilt islands boasting white beaches and lush, verdant inland areas. The Sydney & Reef package really does allow holidaymakers to experience the best of an Australian city break, combined with a tour of some of the country’s best wildlife and natural features.
