Australia immediately conjures images of the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef, big-wave surfing, miles of Outback and a rather strange, and endearing, assortment of animals. While the country’s main cities offer charm, glamour, unique festivals, a well-preserved historical heritage, fabulous beaches and fun events, it’s also a land of immense contrast and captivating nature. The nation offers something for just about everyone – from water lovers, desert wanderers and canyon climbers, to arts and culture buffs, historians, and foodies. The country’s vast size makes it almost impossible to take it all in during a single visit, but you can pick and choose a perfect holiday according to your personal preferences.

From endless sunbaked horizons to dense tropical rainforest and wild southern beaches, Australia’s biggest attraction is its natural beauty.  Scattered along the coasts, its cities blend a European enthusiasm for art and food with a passionate love of sport and the outdoors.  Visitors expecting to see an opera in Sydney one night and meet Crocodile Dundee the next day will have to re-think their grasp of geography in this huge country.  It is its sheer vastness that gives Australia – and its diverse population – much of its character.
