Australia: The Land Down Under

Princeton Journeys is thrilled to offer our first-ever educational travel program to the 'land down under' March 13-25, 2020.

Few destinations inspire as much affectionate esteem as Australia. The world's oldest continent teems with natural wonders and cultural treasures. From architecturally breathtaking Sydney, with its huge harbor and dazzling Opera House, to Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, Australia is simply enchanting. Princeton Journeys is thrilled to offer our first-ever educational travel program to the 'land down under' March- 13-25, 2020.

The journey begins with three nights in Sydney, the country’s cosmopolitan capital. Here enjoy a privately guided tour of the World Heritage listed Opera House, walk along the cliffs of Sydney Coastal Park to the glamourous Bondi Beach, and embark on an evening harbor cruise as the sun sets on this picturesque waterway. Next, venture north to Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, and experience a marine biologist led snorkeling adventure through the largest living structure on the planet. Enjoy three nights in tropical Port Douglas before heading into Australia's 'red center' for a visit to the famous Uluru, 'Ayer's Rock'. The journey concludes in the sophisticated city of Melbourne, but not before a drive along the Great Ocean Road which follows a spectacular coastline of majestic cliffs and rugged, windswept beaches.

If Australia has always been on your "must see" list, there is no better time than now to make it happen.
