WHERE TO GO IN AUSTRALIA

Sydney & New South Wales

Sydney is Australia’s most iconic city. From the white sails of the Opera House and the iconic Harbour Bridge, to the great surf at Bondi Beach, Sydney is vibrant and fun and boasts a great nightlife.  Don't miss out on the spectacular surrounds - the misty Blue Mountains, the wine hills of the Hunter Valley and white sandy beaches all they way from the South Cast up to hip Byron Bay.

Melbourne & Victoria

Melbourne is a great place for art lovers, fashionistas, foodies, coffee lovers and Aussie Rules football. Its hidden laneways and street art make this city one of the coolest in Oz. Use Melbourne as your base to journey the Great Ocean Road and see the 12 Apostles, to spot amazing Aussie wildlife on Phillip Island and to walk in ancient rainforests in the Grampians.

Cairns, Brisbane & Queensland

Introducing Queensland, Australia's epic sunshine state - from Brisbane's buzzing city scene to the natural beauty of Fraser Island, Queensland pretty much covers everything you need to experience the best of Australia and more. Go snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, sail the Whitsundays or learn to surf at Surfer's Paradise!

Visit Queensland

The Northern Territory

Travel to the very heart of Australia with a trip to the Outback. See the changing colours of majestic Uluru at sunset and sleep under a million stars as you camp out in the red rock desert. Visit the Top End and see nature at play in Kakadu National Park or cool off in one of the water holes of Litchfield National Park before cruising through Katherine Gorge.

Adelaide & South Australia

Adelaide is commonly known as the "20 minute city" as it's so easy to get around and easy to get to surrounding wineries and beaches. Many new great bars and restaurants around the city make it a hotspot for foodies. Make your way from Adelaide to the Flinder's Ranges for a true outback experience and journey to Kangaroo Island, known as the "zoo without fences", for epic wildlife spottings.

WA has it all when it comes to Aussie wildlife!
