Australia


Australia is truly the land of adventure and discovery, with iconic cities and unbeatable beaches. This diverse country encompasses rolling hills, desert landscapes and the famous Outback, as well as its golden coastline and cosmopolitan cities.

Sydney

Australia’s largest and most cosmopolitan city. Uncover Australia's fascinating pioneer history in The Rocks,  marvel at the iconic harbour or explore one of its many  sun-drenched beaches, perfect for a dip or a stroll.

Cairns – Marlin Coast

The Marlin Coast, north of Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Dive, snorkel or board a glass bottom boat for a close up view of the brilliantly coloured reef and its plethora of marine life. For some beach time, glorious white sandy beaches await at resorts such as Trinity Beach or Port Douglas. The former is a small, beautiful cove fringed with coconut palms and all the amenities you could need. Port Douglas is home to the stunning Four Mile Beach and offers a selection of world class restaurants. Both are ideally located for visiting the reef or Daintree Rainforest.

Gold and Sunshine Coasts

Little more than an hour south of Brisbane, the Gold Coast is a beach lover’s paradise. At its heart is Surfers Paradise, a bustling resort with plenty going on and a host of attractions. Broadbeach, to the south, is somewhat quieter and more upmarket with a wide sandy beach and a good selection of restaurants and entertainment.

Perth – Sunset Coast

Western Australia's bustling, modern capital has a  reputation for endless sunshine and an easy-going  lifestyle. The area is known for its beautiful parks and gardens and the scenic Swan River. The wide, sandy Indian Ocean beaches to the north are within easy reach and  make up the famed Sunset Coast and its isolated beaches.

Melbourne

Melbourne offers visitors an unrivalled café culture, as well as bustling bars, designer shopping and quaint arcades. Not to mention it's green parks and pleasant riverside walks. It's location is also ideal for a trip along the Great Ocean Road or a visit to the stunning mountain range of The Grampians National Park.

AUSTRALIAN CUISINE

More than just 'shrimps on the barbie', Australia has a rich variety of food, adopted and adapted since colonisation and transformed with each fresh group of immigrants. Modern Australian cuisine is a fusion of flavours from around the world and most menus will feature delicious curries, Asian salads or seafood linguine made using fresh, Australian ingredients. You'll also likely to find simple grilled meat and seafood. Meat, particularly beef is big business in  Australia due to the acres of land at their disposal and their steaks are arguably some of the best in the world. Lamb is also extremely common, as is kangaroo which is low in fat and incredibly tasty. Seafood, as you'd expect is readily  available in vast quantity and diversity and is always  incredibly fresh. Australia also has a reputation of excellent winemaking with superb vineyards throughout the country. Try Surf n' turf (Australian Black Angus rump steak with grilled Crystal Bay prawns) and a glass of local wine.
