Go backstage at the Sydney Opera House, where you’ll visit the orchestra pit and have breakfast in the Green Room. Soak in the 360-degree panorama from the summit of Sydney Harbour Bridge, enjoy a seafood lunch while exploring the Harbour aboard a private luxury cruiser, then join the zookeeper at the Taronga Zoo for a behind-the-scenes tour.


Beloved Melbourne chef and food journalist Allan Campion leads you on a progressive lunch through the city’s most fascinating migrant neighborhoods, including Chinatown, the back streets of the Vietnamese precinct and the Jewish areas of St Kilda.

Adelaide/South Australia

Become a winemaker—at least for a day—in the laboratory of Penfolds, one of Australia’s most famous wine producers. You’ll blend a wine to suit your taste from Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre grapes, then take it home in a personalized bottle.

Ayers Rock

Dine under a blanket of stars at the award-winning Sounds of Silence restaurant, where you’ll feast on Northern Territory delicacies while listening to the hum of a lone didgeridoo. Then the resident astronomer will take you on a stargazing tour of the incredibly clear southern night skies.
