Sydney, Australia »   8 pm
The billowing profile of the Opera House greets us on her return to Sydney's glorious, world-class harbor. Ahead lies the arch of the Harbour Bridge. These twin symbols, more than any other, identify one of the Southern Hemisphere's premier cities.

Sydney is an energetic and exciting metropolis whose nightlife, shopping and fine restaurants compare favorably with the finest the world has to offer. Despite its modern advances, Sydney has lovingly cherished its heritage, for this was the birthplace of the Australian nation.

Combine Sydney's boundless attractions with its superb harborside location, and you have that certain magic that few other cities can rival.

Cruising the Great Barrier Reef, Australia  »
The Great Barrier Reef is 1,250 miles long and covers 80,000 square miles-the largest structure on earth built by living organisms. Ever since Captain Cook ran aground on the reef back in 1770, people have been enjoying its mind-boggling beauty. Over 600 pristine islands stud the reef, each with its brilliant corals and spectacular sea creatures.
Feb 14, Tuesday
Hamilton Island, Australia » 7 am 6 pm
Their location is perfect: the Whitsunday Islands, among them Hamilton Island, sit right off the white sandy coast of Queensland, just 90 minutes from the Outer Great Barrier Reef and amid some dazzling dive sites of their own. Of these 74 islands, most are uninhabited. The islands that do welcome guests offer countless opportunities for snorkeling, diving, sailing, hiking and fishing.

Perhaps the island with the most to see and do is Hamilton Island. The vacation village has been polished to a high sheen and equipped with top-notch amenities. Wander the marina where you can stop for a bite to eat at one of the cafés or do some shopping. For a quintessentially Aussie experience, hike the trails that wind through the island's 1,853-acre virgin bush land. Also visit the wildlife sanctuary for a chance to pet a baby crocodile or hold a cuddly Koala.

Darwin, Australia » 10 am 7 pm
Darwin, Australia's northernmost city, lies between the sun-bleached Outback and the Arafura Sea on Australia's "Top End," as tropical northern Australia is familiarly called. Cosmopolitan, yet casual, the capital of the Northern Territory has grown from its roguish beginnings into a modern, mellow mini-metropolis. Establishing and maintaining a European frontier outpost on Australia's remote northern shores has never been easy. The early colonists' aim in settling this far-flung area was to pre-empt foreign occupation and create a trading post for the British Empire. However, aside from a short-lived gold rush during the latter-half of the 19th Century, Darwin seems to have had a long string of bad luck. Since its early days, the city has weathered three destructive cyclones, the worst being Cyclone Tracy in 1974, as well as Japanese air raids during World War II. Despite its struggles, Darwin boasts a comfortable tropical climate and some of Australia's most intact cultural and natural highlights. Nearby Litchfield National Park provides an abundance of wildlife, numerous waterfalls and a remarkable backdrop for your afternoon explorations of The Territory. For those seeking the source of the Aussie lifestyle made famous by "Crocodile Dundee," the beauty of the Adelaide River and its famed jumping crocodiles will be of particular appeal. Darwin is a fascinating blend of culture, history and nature and beckons for your exploration.
