The vast continent of Australia is often seen as one the best travel destinations in the world. There is so much to discover in this colourful and laidback country; whilst the popular draws of wildlife, picturesque beaches and dramatic scenery are unmissable, Australia also has attractions under the surface that will ensure you have a trip like no other. The cities all offer something slightly different, from the glorious sunshine of Sydney, to the cultural centre of Melbourne and the buzzing capital of Canberra.
It wouldn’t be right to visit Australia without finding your favourite beach, there’s the tourist favourites of Bondi and Byron that are most definitely favourites for a reason. Whitsunday Island offers Whitehaven Beach to the mix, with its pure white sand and brilliantly clear waters, or you may be more drawn to the rugged coastline of the South.
The Australian wine industry is booming, ensuring that there are plenty of winery’s to visit wherever you are.
Located in the north of Western Australia, the Kimberley region is a sparsely populated ancient landscape.
As one of the world’s last wilderness frontiers, the region is full of incredible canyons, freshwater swimming holes and unusual wildlife.
If you’ve ever wanted to have an incredible road trip in a 4WD, then the Kimberley is the perfect place. Despite its remoteness, the area also plays host to a great selection of cuisine and luxury accommodation.
The Whitsundays are a group of 74 islands just off the east coast of Australia. Sheltered by the Great Barrier Reef, the surrounding waters are perfect for snorkelling, sailing and swimming.
Considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Whitehaven Beach found on one of the islands is paradise, spend the day swimming with turtles and rainbow-coloured fish and soak up the sun rays on the pure white sand.
The Whitsunday Islands are a haven for secluded beaches, spectacular landscapes and perfect turquoise waters.
Winding alongside the rugged coastline of Victoria, the Great Ocean Road is a spectacular drive. Best explored over at least a few days, the Road begins 90 minutes’ drive from Melbourne’s city centre and continues until the South Australian border.
Some highlights along the way include the famous craggy limestone spires of the 12 Apostles, the world class surfing at Bells Beach and the impressive waterfalls and gorges in Great Otway National Park.
On top of the beautiful coastline, the Great Ocean Road also offers charming seaside towns that are a perfect pit stop on your adventure. Whether you choose to stay for the night, or simply for lunch, each town has its own personality and is perfect for wandering.
