Australia is a heady cocktail of contemporary cities, ancient cultures and an epic outdoors, topped off with a famously laid-back vibe. The island-continent is home to some of the best beaches in the world, which give way to buzzing urban centres built along the coast. Melbourne, with its cool street art and cafe-lined laneways, and Sydney, with its sleek architecture and vibrant restaurant scene are well-known capitals of Australian culture. Equally interesting but lesser-frequented spots like Darwin stand out for their diversity, blending a large Asian influence with Aborignial cultures.
Australia’s indegenous people preserve their sacred lands and customs, and perhaps the best place to see this is in the Northern Territory. Vast areas like the Kakadu National Park are home to ancient rock art sites and crocodile-filled waterways. Australia is a glorious, diverse wilderness, from the endless red desert of the Outback to the kangaroo and koala-studded countryside, the thriving underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef to the tropical Daintree Rainforest. We’ll take you from cosmopolitan city stays to the rugged outdoors - Australia has something for everyone.
