The impressive Bridge Climb is a 3 ½ hour shared journey to the top of the Sydney Harbor Bridge at twilight. It takes you along the outer arch of the Bridge on catwalks and ladders all the way to the summit, 440 feet above Sydney Harbor. Twilight is BridgeClimb's most popular period, as you experience the best of both worlds with the transition from day into twilight or twilight into night as you move through the Climb. The experience is made all the more special by its exclusivity. Twilight can be enjoyed by only 1 in 8 Climbers, as just 96 places are available each day to climb during this special limited period. You’ll be led by one of BridgeClimb’s professional Climb Leader on an adventure of the world’s most recognizable Bridge. The steady incline to the summit leaves you free to focus your attention on your Sydney experience, with opportunities to witness 360 degree views of Sydney, including east to the Sydney Opera House, west to the Blue Mountains and the Harbor city surrounds. When you reach the top you will have a sense of achievement that you will remember forever - you've conquered an Australian icon recognized the world over! The Bridge Climb is the ultimate Sydney experience. The professional Climb Leader will take pictures of you on the Climb and at the end you will receive a commemorative Climber Certificate, Climber Cap and a complimentary group photograph, with all Climbers in the group receiving an identical photo. For safety reasons Climbers cannot take up personal items onto the Bridge (including cameras). On the climb enclosed rubber-soled shoes such as running, sport or hiking shoes need to be worn. Every climber will need to pass an alcohol breath test not exceeding the 0.05 limit. Climbing is possible for pregnant women if under 24 weeks pregnant with a medical practitioner’s certificate of fitness. The tour operates daily (except 25, 30 & 31 Dec, 1 Jan) in all weather conditions with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 14 passengers.

Day 6: Gold Coast

After picking you up from your accommodation, your knowledgeable guide heads west and discusses Brisbane’s convict history, the region’s European settlement, Aboriginal history and the 24 million years of volcanic history. Enjoy the drive through a combination of dry, golden cattle country and fertile farming lands with rolling hills. Approaching the Great Diving Range see various mountain peaks up to 1375 meters (4500 feet) high. You are one of those lucky and privileged few to enjoy this variety of Aussie landscapes. The first brief stop is Boonah Lookout with impressive views of this thriving country town. Then, head to a special location that only the locals seem to know about, but described by Steve Irwin (a man extremely well-travelled!) as “Australia’s most beautiful road”, providing near 360 degree views of the surrounding Scenic Rim. Enjoy a short walk on Mount French to Frog Buttress – sometimes green, sometimes gold – always spectacular! Alternatively, you may wander through the thriving, country town of Boonah, or if you’re getting thirsty, stop by a local café or ‘The Dugie’ – ‘Australia’s friendliest country pub’. Visit Bunjurgen Estate, a delightful boutique winery, where you are greeted by the ever-friendly wine producer; a genuine Aussie gentleman with hundreds of amazing stories about the region. Before lunch, enjoy a platter of cheeses, nuts and chocolate, which seem to match so perfectly with the winery’s impressive sample of whites, reds, sangria and port from The Rim’s volcanic soils. Depending on the day, lunch is either at a superb vineyard restaurant with gourmet Aussie cuisine – or a private ‘lunch on the lawn’ including a sumptuous Aussie steak, salads, desert etc – all from the shade of a jacaranda tree. Driving around beautiful Lake Moogerah and over the hills, you’ll get impressive views of the ‘Scenic Rim’, a dramatic arc of volcanic mountains. Stopping at a quiet picnic spot, look across the water to Mout Greville (aka ‘Elephant Rock’) and keep an eye out for a variety of native water birds such as Australia’s black swan.

  • Leonard C — November 07, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Can't think of a trip where everything went so well. Every transfer, every tour, both hotels, exceeded expectations. Warm, friendly, knowledgeable people from Renee through all we met on the ground in Cairns, Port Douglas and Mossman.

  • Juliet G — November 07, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Colin Rowe was fabulous. He showed real concern for our comfort and was always there to answer our questions. He is very knowledgeable and a real asset to your organization. We would ask for him by name if we travel again. The meals were delightful, and the tour guides were not only well versed in the culture and surroundings, but offered delightful personal stories during the ride that enhanced our trip. Our accommodations were excellent - both the Four Points Sheraton in Perth and the Radisson Blu in Sydney were first class. Clean and very comfortable. Overall, a wonderful trip!

    It was all we hoped for and more, fantastic experience.

  • Kathleen H — September 08, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Our Kensington destination expert, Kate Perrier, did an extraordinary job of putting together a custom itinerary for my family. My family and I travelled nearly 11,000 miles to get to Australia and got to see everything we were most interested in thanks to Kate's expert planning!

  • Kathleen H. — September 26, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    Our Kensington destination expert, Kate Perrier, did an extraordinary job of putting together a custom itinerary for my family. We wanted a wildlife (koalas, kangaroos, wallabies) focus and Kate suggested a multi day stay on Kangaroo Island. I hadn't even heard of Kangaroo Island but researched it on the internet after her suggestion and realized it was the perfect Australian destination for us. Our stay there was amazing - she arranged two full day tours that were superb. My family and I traveled nearly 11,000 miles to get to Australia and got to see everything we were most interested in thanks to Kate's expert planning!

    Everything went like clockwork! Our family absolutely loved our trip which was made possible by the Kensington travel team.

  • Pam Gerus — May 23, 2017 — Australia & Pacific

    We've never done tours before and planning for Australia seemed overwhelming until I looked at tour options. Kensington was highly rated. I really liked the basics of the tour we picked and Jessica customized it and changed things around to better fit what we were interested in and the timing we preferred. I liked the multiple, smaller tours as opposed to being with the same group for a week. The tours selected were with great companies, small groups, very informative and fun. Also, I was pretty scrambled after the long flight. Having Lyn Redfern meet us at the airport, talk us through the plans, answer our questions, get us situated at the hotel was really comforting and welcoming. The selected hotels were great. Overall a good experience and I'd definitely consider having Kensington set up future trips.
