Holidays to Australia

 

Thanks to its vast scale, there isn't much that Australia doesn't offer. A country of huge contrasts, it's here you'll find the most beautiful beaches in the world, expansive deserts, bright lights of cities such as Sydney and Melbourne, spectacular mountains and unique wildlife. You can channel your inner Crocodile Dundee in the Northern Territories, hit the surf off the pristine beaches of the Gold Coast or Phillip Island, trek through the World Heritage-listed rainforest or lush fern gullies of Victoria’s Otway Ranges, dive among spectacular riches of the Great Barrier Reef, or taste true desert wilderness at Uluru in Australia’s Red Centre.

I love spending my days barefoot or in flip flops, so laid-back Melbourne was the perfect place to live. My favourite adventure from my time living in Australia was the 3-month campervan road trip along the East Coast – full of sun, sea and scuba diving!

Places to go in Australia

Australia has enough to supply several lifetimes of adventure, much of it completely unique – and we’re not just talking about koalas and kangaroos.

Let’s not forget the fantastic big cities, such as cosmopolitan Sydney with the famous Sydney Opera House, and trendy Melbourne (known as the cultural and sports capital of Down Under). But don’t let Australia’s big guns blind you to the delights of its smaller cities. Each has its own distinct character, shaped by its history and environment – laid-back, tropical Darwin, sun-soaked Perth, hip and quirky Fremantle, up-and-coming Brisbane and historic but cool Hobart. All, in their own way, are dominated by their relationship with the sea – right from their origins as 19th-century colonial ports. Australia is one of the most sparsely populated countries on earth and has continued to welcome immigrants from all over the world, making its cities some of the most multicultural you’ll find anywhere. This also makes for a fabulous culinary scene, in which arguably the world’s finest seafood takes centre stage – accompanied, of course, by Australia’s world-class wines and local brews.
