No worries when you’re in Australia, mate. The Land Down Under is a continent of easy-going attitudes, where its landscapes and its people are as remarkable as its animals. The continent is home to everything from steamy tropical rainforests to the red deserts of the Outback. Here you can find miles of surf and sand, world-class vineyards, and cosmopolitan cities.

In Australia you can visit the scenic Blue Mountains in New South Wales and keep your eyes peeled for kangaroos or go in search of the elusive Tasmanian Devils at Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain National Park.

Find surf and sun on one of Australia’s South Coast beaches, seek extreme adventures in Byron Bay, or travel north to the legendary Great Barrier Reef for the most outstanding snorkeling and diving in the world. And for those who enjoy the slopes, did you know you can go skiing in Australia? And let’s not forget the wine!

There are plenty of off-the-beaten track destinations, too. Head out on a bushwalk with an Aboriginal guide to discover ancient Aboriginal rock art, spend a night in the outback, or rent a 4×4 for a Fraser Island excursion.
