If you've ever considered taking a trip Down Under, now’s the perfect time to grab the chance. Australia’s a warm, friendly and diverse holiday destination, where you’ll be guaranteed to have the time of your life. Discover the country’s beautiful and exotic natural landscape, or immerse yourself in local culture. Indulge in great local produce, or simply relax in classic Australian style. Whether you’re planning a once in a lifetime adventure holiday, a romantic escape or a family trip, Australia really does have something for everyone.
Have an Incredible Adventure
Australia has an incredibly diverse landscape – from the beautiful, vibrant coastal regions to the vast, expansive wilderness of the outback. Grab the chance to explore as many different environments as possible – from the 16,000 miles of coastline and luxurious sandy beaches that extend around the country and the snowy mountains the run along the East Coast, to the lush tropical woods of Tasmania, and the dry outback.
Enjoy breath-taking scenery and get up close with Australia’s extensive wildlife. Discover the Great Barrier Reef to explore the stunning marine displays of coral and tropical sea life, or go inland to encounter Australia’s most iconic animals in the wild – the kangaroo and the koala.
Take in the Local Treats
Australia is a treat for foodies, with a wealth of local produce throughout the year. Wine lovers won’t want to miss out on the chance to take a tasting tour of the country’s own vineyards, with extensive wine regions near Perth, Melbourne and Sydney offering the perfect opportunity to take a day trip from the city to enjoy a relaxing picnic in the country.
No trip to Australia is complete without trying out a traditional barbeque, and it’s well worth experiencing this Australian classic on the beach. With delicious fresh catches available throughout the year, you’ll get to enjoy a barbeque like none other – take in a gorgeous sunset on the coast as you enjoy freshly caught seafood.
Culture and Style
While Australia’s natural history is what makes the country most famous around the world, its cities are just as memorable. Visit Sydney’s iconic Opera House and check out the local contemporary arts scene with galleries and museums that showcase the best of Australia’s talent. Have a great night out in the city’s buzzing food and entertainment quarter, Darling Harbor, or simply people watch on the glittering sands of Bondi Beach.
For a more laid back experience of Australia, the younger city of Perth provides the perfect spot for younger couples looking for a European style atmosphere. Discover the city’s fantastic coffee culture, with dozens of local bars providing their own delicious locally grown mixes, or enjoy the beautiful open parks that fill the city. You’ll also find that Australia is surprisingly affordable to visit, with local prices in Australian Dollars at competitive rates compared to what you might be used to in the UK!
For thrill seekers, Australia really does offer everything you could ever imagine, from stunning scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef, to surfing along the miles of coast around the country. Both newcomers and experienced pros alike can expect a warm welcome – with friendly schools around the country to help beginners get to grips with a new skill.
The vast continent of Australia also offers some unexpected treats too – from climbing across the iconic
sacred sight of Uluru, to hang gliding and skydiving over the stunning Australian scenery. Daredevils can push themselves to the limit with some truly terrifying experiences on offer – from white water rafting in Tasmania, to diving with great white sharks off the Eyre Peninsula. But if that doesn’t appeal to you, there are plenty of other ways to take in Australia’s natural beauty that will appeal to all ages and tastes – enjoy a sailboat ride around Sydney, take a serene hot air balloon ride at sunrise across Alice Springs or the Hunter Valley, or enjoy a leisurely cycling tour across the country’s forests.
