Your Destinations —
There is no other destination on the planet that combines beautiful beaches with hip cities, indigenous tales, expansive rainforests, kangaroos, and boomerang throwing. Australia is an ideal place to visit for anyone who is keen to get outside and explore its rugged landscape. Families with young children will never be short of things to do, while hiking enthusiasts may like to venture away from the tourist tracks for a challenging trek with jaw-dropping scenery.
This daring city is particularly popular with surfers who flock to its incredible beaches. Sydney is also home to the magnificent Opera House where visitors can take a guided tour to learn more about the productions that are performed here.
Referred to as the "coathanger", the Sydney Bay Bridge is a must-see landmark that is best explored by bike.
The Story Bridge is an iconic structure that connects the South of the city with the North. The bridge offers panoramic views of Brisbane, and on a clear day, it is possible to see the Glasshouse Mountains and the Gold Coast Hinterland. For an adrenaline-fuelled experience, it is possible for visitors to climb the bridge with a local tour company.
When you are ready to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, head for the Brisbane coast and its idyllic islands. Moreton Island is just a 70-minute ferry ride and is the third largest sand island in the world. It offers a large national park, wonderful snorkelling opportunities, a blue lagoon, and dolphin and whale watching experiences.
At Tjapukai Tree Culture Park you will learn about the Aborigine people, one of the oldest cultures in the world that have lasted for more than 40,000 years.
Jump on a ferry ride to the picturesque Fitzroy Island in just 45 minutes. There, you can take part in a range of activities including rainforest trails, snorkelling at Welcome Bay, and kayaking in the Great Barrier Reef.
