Destination Information for Australia

Australia is a top destination and is on many people’s wish list for a dream trip. With world-renowned tourist attractions, a warm and sunny climate, stunning landscapes with beaches, desert and rainforest, and busy cosmopolitan cities, it’s not hard to see why Australia is so popular – there really is something for everyone!

Australia’s vastness means you’ll need to be decisive and organised when planning your trip, because unless you’re lucky enough to be going for several months and have a jam-packed itinerary, you’re unlikely to be able to fit in absolutely everything. Sydney is a popular choice, as it is Australia’s oldest and largest city. The New South Wales coast has plenty of beaches, and you’re not far from the mountain ranges of the Blue Mountains and the Snowy Mountains, as well as the purpose-built capital, Canberra. Sydney Harbour and Bridge are iconic tourist spots, as well as the world-famous Opera House, and international restaurants, bars, museums and more. The North-eastern corner of Australia is the region of Queensland, home to the Gold Coast and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as tropical rainforests Daintree National Park. Head inland to explore the outback, with its huge empty expanses of wilderness.

Many travellers choose to make Australia a long-term destination, and stay for a year or more, while others have to be content with a couple of weeks in the Aussie sunshine. Whatever your itinerary and however long your trip, this is a destination to which you’ll definitely want to pay a return visit!
