There’s NOTHING like Australia.

No worries when you’re in The Land Down Under, mate. Australia’s landscapes and easy-going people are as remarkable as its animals. This continent is home to everything from cosmopolitan cities to steamy tropical rainforests and arid red deserts.

Find surf and sun on one of Australia’s many 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 Australia’s wine!

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