What to see in Australia

We’re best known for our natural attractions in Australia, like the Great Barrier Reef, the Outback, our lush Rainforests, thousands of gorgeous Beaches and our Culture. Another big draw card for Australia is the unique Australian native Wildlife, including Kangaroos and those cute, cuddly Koalas (which actually aren’t very cuddly). We’re also big on ‘life’ – us Aussies love fun, sporting events, entertainment, the great out-doors and delicious food & wine (well, most of us anyway).  Our cities are spectacular too, most notably Sydney, which has the iconic Sydney Opera House on the stunning Sydney Harbor. Did you know that Sydney was voted one of the world’s best cities by Conde Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards 2014? Sydney is a must visit Australia Destination!


Australia Places to Visit

The big question remains what are the best Australia destinations you should visit? This is where it gets a little complicated, because you can visit many of the popular Australian attractions (Reef, Rainforests, Wildlife, Outback etc) from multiple destinations. Basically, it comes down to selecting the destinations that are the best match to your interests & budget. How? We know you don’t want to hear this, BUT the quickest and easiest way to work this all out is to chat with your Australian Destination Specialist (yes, make a phone call) and talk it through. We all love to hide behind our screens and do the research ourselves, but seriously, your conversation with us about what to do in Australia and the best places to visit in Australia will be the single best investment in your vacation your could possibly make. We’ll help you decipher the pros and cons of each destination and help you match the right places-to-visit with your favorite things-to-do that best fit your budget. Ever hear that saying “Knowledge is Power”? Its true, we can arm you with all the knowledge you need to make the right destination decisions for your perfect vacation.

“Argh!” I hear you say!  You can do it. Go on… pickup that phone! You’ve got nothing to lose and a wealth of Aussie knowledge to gain!
