Australia Holiday

There’s no doubt about it: Australia is a diverse place, with beautiful beaches, unusual animals, more than 60 wine regions and fascinating cities. You can surf, admire city skylines, explore rainforests and dive in underwater wonderlands all on the same continent—all you have to do is decide where to go.


Join a Cairns dive tour to swim among the Great Barrier Reef’s colourful fish and coral. Explore rainforests and watch crocodiles (from afar) in nearby Daintree.

Surf and swim on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. In Brisbane, stroll along the gorgeous riverbanks and across the famous Story Bridge. Take the family to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and watch these cute creatures eating eucalyptus or sleeping. Let vibrant rainbow lorikeets land on your arms at feeding time.

In Sydney, ride the train to Circular Quay to shop, dine and people-watch. The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb provides glorious city views. Attend a performance at the iconic Sydney Opera House and stay after dark as it lights up in brilliant colours. Ferry to Taronga Zoo and spend the night. Swim at Coogee Beach’s ocean pool. Then do the Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk in reverse to reach famous Bondi Beach, where you can surf and sunbathe on golden sands.

Bike through Melbourne to the Royal Botanic Gardens or cruise along the river to enjoy the city’s magnificent skyline. Visit the National Sports Museum at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Great Ocean Road drive offers many stops to view the rugged shoreline.

Stop in Canberra to see the Royal Australian Mint, the High Court and numerous museums, monuments and galleries. Take a trip to the Blue Mountains, with ridge after ridge of beauty. Travel north to national parks to see wildlife like wombats, emus and goannas. Uluru, around five-hours’ drive from Alice Springs, is an unbelievable sight at sunrise and sunset. Visit Adelaide for water sports on the Great Australian Bight. In Perth, look west to a sunset over the Indian Ocean.

Wherever you travel, you’ll find friendly locals and travellers, delightful food and drink and plenty of adventure throughout Australia. When is the best time to book your holiday? Right now!


Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in Australia?

A: Unless you're really into cars, public transportation or ride-sharing is probably the easiest and best way of getting around the buzzing streets of Sydney or Melbourne. With no pesky parking fees (or trips to the gas pump) to have to worry about, you'll be able to check out the city's popular sights with ease. If your aim is to hightail it out of town and take in the region of New South Wales or elsewhere, renting a vehicle is a terrific option. Browse our handy guide to Cheap Car Hire in Australia, book a set of wheels and get ready for the road trip of a lifetime.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to Australia?

A: International flights to Australia generally operate from one of these major airport terminals:

  • Sydney, NSW (SYD-Kingsford Smith Intl.): 2,971 international flights per month.
  • Melbourne, VIC (MEL-Tullamarine): 2,054 international flights per month.
  • Brisbane, QLD (BNE): 1,487 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to Australia?

A: Some of the most popular types of accommodation in Australia include private holiday homes, motels and hotels. You might also like to book one of the apartments. You'll have access to all of these property types on Expedia.

Q: What does an Australia holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Flights, a sweet ride and a place to lay your head for the night — we've got them covered. All you need to do is figure out what you'd like. With Expedia, you can shape your getaway to Australia just how you like it, with extra attractions and experiences on offer to boot.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to Australia?

A: One of the simplest ways to save dollars is to bundle your bookings with Expedia. Flights, Hotels and Car Rentals can all be easily combined into a neat package — and by doing this, you'll save precious time as well. Keep this in mind before you book.

Q: What are the best things to do in Australia?

A: A holiday that includes a stay in Sydney just wouldn't be complete if you didn't make time to see Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Or, if you're spending time in Melbourne, many travellers make tracks for Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex, Melbourne Cricket Ground and St Kilda Beach.

And finally, if you're still looking for things to do in Australia, then it's time to find out what Brisbane can offer. Top visitor attractions here include Queen Street Mall, Roma Street Parkland and Suncorp Stadium.
