If you’re arriving on day 1, hostel check in isn’t until 3pm, but you can store your baggage at the hostel.

The trip ends in Sydney on the morning of day 8. Return airport transfers aren’t included so you’ll need to arrange your own onward transport, but your tour guide can help with booking this.
