Photo Tours Australia Down Under - Sydney

This photo tour through the south east of Australia will bring you closer to the charm and the casual lifestyle of "Down Under". Let yourself be swept away by the magic of Sydney and Melbourne, walk in the footsteps of the politicians in Canberra and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Australia on the Great Ocean Road and on a cruise on the longest river of Australia, the Murray River.

 

The Route for the Reuthers Photo Tour Australia Down Under

 

The Route:

arrow down Day 1: Melbourne

Australia Welcome to Melbourne

Welcome to Melbourne - the Sunshine City. Be our guest at the traditional Welcome-Dinner. Let's get to know each other. Your tour guide will be happy to answer any questions regarding your upcoming Australian photo tour adventure.

arrow down Day 2: Melbourne > Port Campbell

Australia Twelve Apostels

Right after breakfast and the day's briefing we head for Torquay, the gateway to the Great Ocean Road. This legendary coast road was built by home-coming soldiers in memory of their companions. More highlights on the road this first day are Bells Beach, the red and white lighthouse, Airey's Inlet and of course the Twelve Apostles.

arrow down Day 3: Port Campbell > Portland

Australia Great Ocean Road

The whole day is devoted to the Great Ocean Road. First stop will be Warnabool, and at Logan Beach, depending on the season, whale watching.

arrow down Day 4: Portland > Ballarat

Australia Sovereign Hill, Ballarat

Leaving the coast road, we go inland and pass through an endless variety of landscapes. Early afternoon we reach Ballarat and spend the rest of the day at Sovereign Hill, a suburb where time stands still. The old gold mining town invites you to prospect for gold and in different houses you will learn more about life in "the good old days" in the Australian "Wild West".

Australia Road Trip

Beautiful landscapes, endless avenues and the breadth of the country show just how big a continent Australia is. Our goal today is Echuca and for a special reason.

arrow down Day 6: Echuca > Albury

Australia Emmylou Murry River Echuca

We board the paddle steamer Emmylou for an unforgettable boat tour on the Murray, Australia's longest river and continue our trip on the Murray Valley Highway with a photo stop at Lake Mulwala and visit the famous Routherglen wine region. For dinner we spend the evening at the Commercial Club with a "Gambling Licence".

Australia Government House Canberra

Although everybody knows about Sydney and Melbourne, the capital of Australia is actually Canberra. Today's highlight is a visit to the Australian parliament buildings and the new government house.

Australia Captain Cook Sydney

We are leaving the interior country by freeway and head for the Pacific, to Sydney. In the evening we undertake a harbour cruise with dinner on board the Captain Cook.

arrow down Day 9: Sydney

Australia Opera House Sydney

A free day for everyone. Of course we will be happy to assist you in selecting and booking your Sydney highlights. Our tip: the Opera House Tour in the morning. Here you will get a good look behind the scenes of the Sydney Opera House, one of the three best opera houses in the world.

arrow down Day 10: Sydney > Bateman's Bay

Australia  Bewong Road House

From Sydney we head south, alternating coast roads and the Princess Highway 1.
A must in the loneliness of the Benandarah State Forest is the Bewong Road House, a popular truck stop.

arrow down Day 11: Bateman's Bay > Lakes Entrance

Australia Tathra Wharf

Passing the yacht harbour in Bateman's Bay, our coastal road leads us to the Muruya River and Princess Highway 1 to Tathra. At the Wharf Restaurant we learn more about seafood specialities.

arrow down Day 12: Lakes Entrance > Melbourne

Colonial Tram Car Restaurant Melbourne Australia

Princess Highway 1 becomes more and more the Princess Freeway and so we have a fast run into Melbourne with its Crown World of Entertainment, including shopping centers, casinos and a lot more attractions. The highlight of the evening will be our traditional Farewell Dinner and a Melbourne sightseeing tour on the Colonial Tram Car. Finally we all reminisce on our tour together. Let's meet again on one of our next photo tour adventures in New Zealand, USA, South Africa or Europe.

You learn more about the look for graphic accents and different perspectives as well as the use of different focal lengths. Finally, it is subtleties that lead to an individual photograph. For early risers we have the sunrise in the program - for night owls the sunset. And, of course, we will discuss the photo shoots of the participants in the tour group and award the best photo at the end of a Reuthers Photo Tour <<<
