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!
