AUSTRALIA

OVERVIEW

Australia is a vast land – three million square miles to be exact – that is nothing short of extraordinary. There are few places in the world that offer as much diversity as Australia.

Australia is the hard-baked earth of the Red Centre and the colourful coral of the Great Barrier Reef. It is the mystical stories of Aboriginal Dreamtime, tropical rainforests and glorious white-sand beaches. Between the miles of coastline, the immense outback desert and iconic city sights; you will never be short of things to do in Australia.

Alongside incredible natural beauty, Australia holidays offer the chance to explore exciting cities like Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Here you’ll find world-class cuisine from high-end fusion restaurants to off-the-back-of-the-boat seafood. Enjoy their booming café culture – one to rival any European city. Or sample the fine wines of the surrounding vineyards such as Hunter Valley or Margaret River.

Then, of course, there are the famous beaches. Watch the pro surfers at Bondi Beach or relax on the powdery shores of the Whitsunday Islands. Pair this with the easy-going Aussie lifestyle and you’ve got one outstanding holiday destination.

Sail, snorkel, hike, swim, sightsee, relax. Whatever you want from your travels Down Under, holidays to Australia have it all.
