Day 2: Sydney

Step into the quiet solitude of the Chinese Garden of Friendship as we enjoy a guided tour with Ken Lamb, an expert in oriental gardens. Celebrating nature, the garden features towering willow trees, cool lagoons with lotus plants and large colourful fish making this an idyllic oasis in the city.

After lunch, we return to the hotel for an afternoon of leisure. This evening we transfer to the Sydney Opera House for a night of mystery and romance with The Phantom of the Opera, Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production performed by a cast and orchestra of 65. Be awed by the stunning new staging, splendid costumes and incredible special effects including the underground lake and a marvellous new realisation of the show’s famous chandelier. The Phantom haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera House. He’s man and mystery, a deformed genius. And in Christine Daae, he’s found his angel of music – the young woman he would make a star. Be mesmerised as they create the music of the night!

About Sojourns

Our Sojourn programmes are short break journeys put together in conjunction with themes, events or experiences. These programmes range from exploring Australia’s Top End to world-class events and unique experiences throughout Australia and New Zealand.

In this way, you can enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow travellers during the day, along with the safety and security of travelling with an escorted group, but still retire to your own personal room in the evening.  Note: The single supplement free offer cannot be taken in conjunction with any other offer.
