Dive into Australia

When we asked Betty Jo Currie of Currie & Co. to create an itinerary to Australia, she picked some of the most iconic destinations in the country: Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef. From the underwater attractions of the reef to the soaring heights of the Sydney Harbour Bridge—and beyond, with a flight over the harbor—Betty Jo’s itinerary covers some of Australia’s favorite destinations from every angle.
