Australia takes you to a land of stylish cities, breathtaking beaches, natural wonders and untamed wilderness.
It covers a huge area of almost three million square miles. For the discerning traveller seeking somewhere different, it’s a destination offering every imaginable type of holiday. No other country has so many contrasts, no other nation can offer such rich culture and nowhere else on the globe has so many stunning natural wonders. Sophisticated Sydney with its famed Opera House always promises to delight.
Head for the tropical north and the Great Barrier Reef, one of nature’s most stunning creations. Stretching accross the middle of the land, is the untamed Outback with the great Ayers Rock.
With competitive airfares now available Australia is no longer a ‘once in a lifetime’ destination.
Australia is in the southern hemisphere and the seasons are opposite to those in Europe and North America. There are two climatic zones: the tropical zone (in the north above the Tropic of Capricorn) and the temperate zone. The tropical zone (consisting of 40% of Australia) has two seasons, summer (‘wet’) and winter (‘dry’), while the temperate zone has all four seasons.
Spring to summer (October to March): Warm or hot everywhere, tropical in the north, and warm to hot with mild nights in the south.Autumn to winter (April to September): Northern and central Australia have clear warm days and cool nights; the south has cool days with occasional rain but still plenty of sun. Snow is totally confined to mountainous regions of the southeast. Drought is becoming more widespread with southeast Queensland, Victoria and South Australia all badly affected.
Australia has 18 World Heritage Sites
One of which is the Great Barrier Reef…
Due to the fact that it is such a long flight time to Australia, usually there is a stop over in a different country at some point during the flight. A common stopover of choice is in Singapore, which provides a unique and exciting cultural experience!
• The Great Barrier Reef- The famous reef can be found off the coast of Queensland and it’s the world’s largest coral reef spreading over 2,600 km with approximately 900 islands. The best way to visit the reef is to take a private boat tour out to the reef. This means you can scuba dive and snorkel in the day and then enjoy the incredible native cuisine on the boat while the sun sets.
• Tour of Barossa Valley- This valley is known for its exceptional wineries and world renowned wines. Need I say more! • Broome- This is one of the most idyllic and photographic areas you will find. With Cable beach, one of the top ten beaches in Australia, this location you will find hard to leave! It is relaxing, romantic and irresistible. When the sunsets visit the open air cinema, before hitting the bars for a good night out. • The Great Ocean Road- This road stretches just over 240km, and every metre is equally as stunning as the last. Drive it yourself and stop wherever and whenever you want on this photographic phenomenon. Go into the sunset on this romantic route and loose yourself for days with new other half.
