Australia is a country with endless miles of unspoilt beaches, tropical rainforest, mountain ranges and vast tracts of desert. The sheer size of the country is awe-inspiring and any visit to this kaleidoscope of landscapes is sure to be the holiday of a lifetime.
The country boasts action packed adventures at every turn - including scuba diving on the stunning Great Barrier Reef, skydiving, surfing and bungee jumping. For the less adventurous, there are more serene pursuits like exploring National Parks, dipping into Aboriginal culture or experiencing Australian city life. The seasons are the opposite of those in the Northern hemisphere, so you can enjoy spending Christmas at the beach having a barbeque or skiing in August.
The climate varies from the balmy Queensland to the milder New South Wales but definitely offers something to suit every taste.
Sydney is an ideal destination for a city break, with the stunning architecture of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge providing a backdrop to a city of vibrant nightlife and great shopping.
