There is no better place to start your adventure than Sydney, Australia’s Harbour City. Exciting, yet easygoing, this glossy waterside cosmopolis has so much to offer. Enjoy the food markets, skyline bars and art galleries. View the iconic Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge from the water, and explore Sydney’s surf beaches and tranquil bays.

Say goodbye to Sydney and set off for Port Stephens where you’ll be greeted by pristine waters and stunning sand dunes.

After experiencing a taste of Port Stephens' laid back lifestyle, your next stop will be the majestic Dorrigo National Park, the largest strip of subtropical rainforest on earth.

A visit to Bryon Bay followed by the Gold Coast, Australia's playground, will certainly fill up the next few days of your adventure.

Brisbane, the sun-soaked capital of Queensland, is next on your TripMapper itinerary. Wine and dine at Howard Smith Wharves, indulge at Eat Street Markets, and brighten your style in the city's boutiques.
