Who is Australia best for?
With cool cities, gorgeous beaches and innumerable culinary hotspots, Australia holidays are ideal for honeymooners. Sail off to the Whitsunday islands and find a romantic paradise, where you can explore tropical rainforests, enjoy beach picnics and cruise to secret swimming coves. The country is also ideal for families - the whole gang will be blown away exotic wildlife and stunning scenery. In Sydney’s Taronga Zoo, take a cable car ride to see wombats, koalas and gorillas up close. Journey further afield to Kangaroo Island - the whole island is a protected sanctuary for wildlife such as the tammar wallabies, southern brown bandicoots, brushtail possums and short-beaked echidnas. Australia’s intriguing and spectacular landscapes make for exciting outdoor adventures whether it’s camping under the stars with direct views of Ayers Rock, or helicopter safaris over the enormous crater-like Wilpena Pound. Divers will be champing at the bit to get stuck into the Great Barrier Reef. The World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef is also well worth a trip, between March and July you can snorkel with whale sharks.
What can you find in Australia that you won’t find elsewhere?
Rich Aboriginal heritage in the ochre-coloured plains surrounding Uluru. Here you’ll find traces of Australia’s indigenous people - 50,000 year-old rock art and wild territories, that are still utilised by Aboriginal families today. Discover immense natural beauty from Tasmania’s rugged wilderness to Queensland’s dreamy white-sand islands that largely remained unspoiled. Visit some of the most iconic beaches in the world such as the world-famous sands of Bond,i and laidback Manly - popular with families. Great surf, sand and restaurants make Sydney a highlight for most Australian holidays. And there’s good reason to visit Western Australia, which is home to the up-and-coming city of Perth and vineyards as far as the eye can see.
What are the best ways to discover Australia?
If you have time, consider exploring Australia’s vast landscapes on a road trip. Before you go, we’ll give you maps, tips and our little black book so that you can pause, linger and explore as you please armed with the best intel. Perhaps you’ll choose an eco-lodge, glamping or a swish hotel with all the bells and whistles. Sweep through the country to experience the highlights - an ideal trip for first timers would cover Sydney, Kangaroo Island, Ayers Rock and the Great Barrier Reef. And if you have more time, why not ponder a trip to New Zealand? Just leave the logistics to us.
