This three-week extravaganza incorporates all the absolute must-do bits of Australia into one legendary-yet stress-free-adventure. From the bustling cities dotting the coast to Australia's burgeoning wine country, from the outback and iconic Uluru (Ayers Rock) to the beach, the Great Barrier Reef and even the legendary dreamtime itself, you'll leave no stone unturned on this trip.
