Australia is the world’s largest island, sixth largest country and smallest continent! Most of its cities can be found scattered along its beautiful coastline, here's a quick intro to four of them...
City Life Aussie style......
The country’s oldest city with a beautiful (and the world's largest) natural harbour. Sydney is a lively and bustling sun-kissed city adorned with beaches and waterside walks, as well as boutiques, bars, sights and activities. Are you brave enough to climb the span of the famous harbour bridge? The ferries are a great way to get around or you could chill out on a chartered yacht to take in the views.
Not far from Sydney are the stunning Blue Mountains (a world heritage site with bushwalks, caves and much more) and the delicious wines of the Hunter Valley region.
The capital of Victoria, Melbourne, is sophisticated and edgy and bursting at the seams with culture and sport. It has a maze of tiny alleyways hidden behind the main streets that are home to a plethora of one-off boutiques, art galleries and a whole range of multicultural dining delights.
Enjoy world-class wineries in the Yarra Valley (and 4 other wine regions close-by!) and don't miss a trip along the breath-taking Great Ocean Road.
Small and elegant and enveloped in lush parklands and glorious gardens. Adelaide enjoys a Mediterranean climate and plays host to festivals all year round - including theatre, dance, comedy, art, music and much more. You can swim with dolphins at Port Adelaide and enjoy wine tasting at 200 cellar doors (including the world-renowned Barossa region and wonderful McLaren Vale).
An amazing destination outside Adelaide (a 30 minute flight or fast ferry ride away) is Kangaroo Island. It has pristine beaches, protected wilderness and unique wildlife. A must see from several of our clients!
The relaxed lifestyle of Australia’s westernmost and most isolated capital city can be enjoyed a multitude of ways. You can cruise the Swan River passing parks and skyscrapers on the way to over 40 vineyards in the Swan Valley. The historic port city of Fremantle is just south of Perth and has great markets, restaurants and events.
Have we mentioned wine tasting at all yet?! Well you can do more of that and spend a wonderful few days in the beautiful Margaret River region (about 3 hours south of Perth). The beaches are a real surfing mecca, there's great diving and incredible limestone caves too.
The Coast and The Outback
Australia has over 50,000km of beautiful and varied coastline!
There are city coastlines, deserted wild coastlines, stunning long sandy beaches, idyllic islands, huge surf swells and jaw-dropping coral reefs. You just can't miss the Great Barrier Reef.
There are many places across the South up the East coast that have great surf and teach newcomers to the sport! Give it a go!
Experience Australia’s remote and never-ending outback. Marvel at the vast dramatic landscapes littered with breathtaking rock formations, rugged mountain ranges, spectacular gorges, hot springs and thunderous waterfalls. No visit is complete without a trip to the outback. The incredible contrast of the red earth and blue sky in Central and Western Australia is something else!
There are a few slang words to learn before your trip down under!
An important one is 'thong' - this means flip flop... and 'daks' are trousers... the 'dunnie' is the toilet. We can help you with a few more to avoid any embarrassing moments!
