Experience the Land down Under
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 an Australia holiday, with famous landmarks, gorgeous beaches and over 20 World Heritage sites.
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 on Australia holidays.
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 in New South Wales, Barossa Valley in South Australia or Margaret River in Western Australia.
Take to the road and journey along world-famous Great Ocean Road in Victoria or venture west and journey up the coastlines of Perth, visiting the locals of Rottnest Island; the friendly Quokka, before continuing your road trip north into the Australian outback.
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 and stay on the largest of the islands; Hamilton Island surround by turquoise waters and coral reefs. Pair this with the easy-going Aussie lifestyle and you have one outstanding holiday destination. Sail, snorkel, hike, swim, sightsee, relax. Whatever you want from your travels Down Under, holidays to Australia have it all.
