Visit Australia

Australia offers an incredible variety of landscapes, climates, wildlife and experiences. Together with its friendly and welcoming people, it’s a hard combination to beat.

Sydney, New South Wales

Home to the infamous Bondi Beach, Sydney has so much to offer. Manly Beach and Coogee Beach just to name a few, provide sweeping stretches of golden sand and blue seas. Dining on Sydney Harbour is magical, from the high-calibre fare of city restaurants to fish and chips by the sea, or on the deck of a luxury harbour cruise.

Tour suggestions:

Brisbane, Queensland

Combine art and outdoor adventure in Brisbane, where creative spaces, music and hip new restaurants meet pretty riverside gardens and man-made beaches. Explore the sun-soaked capital over a couple of days or a few weeks with our tips on the best things to see and do.

Great Barrier Reef

The 2,300 kilometre (1,430 mile) Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world. You can swim, snorkel, dive and sail this living masterpiece.

Home to diverse marine life of the most vivid colours, the Great Barrier Reef offers the opportunity for great adventure, whether you do it in luxury or on a budget. Explore the stunning Whitsunday Islands, trek the ancient Daintree Rainforest or relax on luxurious tropical islands such as Hayman and Lizard. Island-hop or stay in one of the many coastal getaways such as Cairns, Port Douglas, Hervey Bay and Mission Beach.

Tour suggestions:

Perth, Western Australia

Nature and urban life exist in harmony in Perth, on Australia’s west coast. Here, where the locals soak up more sunny days than in any other Australian capital city, you can visit nearby Rottnest Island, walk in leafy Kings Park and tour Swan Valley vineyards. For local culture, wander the nearby city of Fremantle’s winding portside streets and Perth city centre’s museum and gallery precinct.

Adelaide, South Australia

Adelaide offers a burgeoning small-bar scene, world-class art and music, and a year-round festival calendar. Discover its laneway secrets, take in the stunning flora at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, and find delicious treats around every bend. Discover Adelaide and get up close to kangaroos, koalas, seals, penguins and pelicans on the nature paradise of Kangaroo Island.

Uluru, Northern Territory

Experience Aboriginal culture, desert adventures and the changing colours of Uluru in Australia’s Red Centre.

The Red Centre is an extraordinary landscape of desert plains, weathered mountain ranges, rocky gorges and some of Aboriginal Australia’s most sacred sites, including Uluru and Kata Tjuṯa. Floating in an outback waterhole, dining under a starry sky while being serenaded by didgeridoo, and watching the world’s most famous rock change colours at dawn and dusk are just some of the Red Centre’s only-in- Australia experiences.

Tour suggestion:

Hobart, Tasmania

With daring art, a dynamic food scene and a wealth of natural attractions, Hobart is a small city with big ideas.

Enjoy a cup of coffee, shop, wandering the galleries or relax under the sun umbrellas in the picturesque cobblestone square that is Salamanca Place. Take a trip up to the northern end of the coast where you’ll find Flinders Island, the place to dive for shipwrecks and fossick for diamonds at Killiecrankie. If you have a taste for the high country and malt whiskey, stopover at Bothwell in Central Plateau.

Darwin, Northern Territory

Enjoy Darwin’s tropical weather and eclectic food and culture at outdoor festivals, waterfront restaurants, tropical parklands and art precincts.  Get a taste the region’s dramatic history at museums, visit the world heritage listed Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks and experience Indigenous culture.

Canberra, ACT

Explore Canberra to experience Australian culture and history at superb monuments and galleries. It’s also a city surrounded by parkland and native bush.

As Australia’s capital city (and the home of Parliament House), Canberra plays host to a community of residents who’ve relocated from larger cities such as Melbourne and Sydney to work in politics, government and related industries such as media. Add a large student population (some of Australia’s most prestigious universities are located here) and a number of renowned galleries and museums, and the result is a small but cosmopolitan city with a great food scene and plenty of creative flair.
