Unforgettable experiences

  • Experience once-in-a-lifetime Scenic Enrich highlights which offer you a rare, inspiring and often exclusive insight into Australasia’s past and present. These include a helicopter ride over the Great Barrier Reef, the Field of Light experience at Uluru, a visit to the Tamaki Village for a traditional Maori evening and, lastly, a guided tour of the award-winning Hamilton Gardens, as you enjoy lunch in one of the private themed gardens.

Included dining

  • A total of 40 meals will be included, with breakfast every morning.

  • Enjoy a Freechoice Dining experience in Melbourne as you dine on board a restored tramcar as it tours the city and, in Brisbane, spend the evening indulging in Japanese cuisine in the hotel’s Kabuki Teppanyaki restaurant as you taste the TSUBAKI set menu. Dine in the outback at a unique Field of Light dinner where, as the sun sets, lights twinkle and you’ll enjoy canapés, complimentary drinks and authentic Australian cuisine.

The choices and quality of the excursions on offer was exceptional. Scenic gave us the freedom to pick from a selection of experiences, so we never missed out on things we wanted to see.

The Grand Australia tour proved the ultimate Australian experience. It left us with lasting memories but also a real desire of wanting to return one day.

I love that the hot air balloon and seaplane trips were included in the price! I recommend Scenic to everybody – it’s been excellent!

Our Grand Australia tour was absolutely perfect! We never imagined we would see and do so many exciting things in one trip. To fly on a seaplane over Sydney, visit a Kangaroo sanctuary and see the penguin parade on Phillip Island were things we would never have organised ourselves. Everything was so well organised all we had to do was sit back and enjoy ourselves.
