About This Destination

Australia is a country of extremes and between the vast stretches of the outback and the world-famous beaches of the sunshine coast, you’re bound to find somewhere (or most likely lots of places!) you’ll love. The startling beauty of Australia’s outback is even more breath-taking when you consider the centuries of Aboriginal history shifting through the amber sands. The landscape’s prehistoric rock formations are equally beautiful glowing in the sun or bathed in cool moonlight. On the other end of the scale you’ll find Australia’s gorgeous coastlines, whose attractions include unrivalled surfing and, of course, the Great Barrier Reef.

Australians pride themselves on their food and especially their coffee, so you’ll never be far from a great meal and the perfect flat white. Australia’s cities are booming with cool café culture and from Sydney to Melbourne and beyond, each one has its own quirky attributes. A trip including the Hunter Valley and the Blue Mountains is an ideal introduction to the country’s hip cities, wonderful wines and beautiful landscapes. Choose the west coast and explore Western Australia’s capital, Perth or take the Great Ocean Road, one of the world’s most scenic coastal drives, from Melbourne to Adelaide.

New Zealand may hold the crown when it comes to adventure but there’s plenty for thrill-seekers and intrepid explorers to sink their teeth into in Australia too. For city slickers, climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and enjoying the staggering views from the top is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you want to get closer to nature, Mungo National Park and Kings Canyon are wondrous locations that make for a great immersive outback experience.
