With one week to spend savoring Australia's luxuries, it's best to split your time between two standout destinations. First-time travelers seeking a well-rounded trip will find Sydney and Melbourne to be the perfect bases, while those curious about the outback can swap in time at Uluru. If you have your sights set on the Great Barrier Reef, Port Douglas and Hamilton Island are great options, or consider heading to southern Australia for a hidden-gems adventure filled with wildlife encounters.
