Where will you go?
So many options, so little time, Australia is huge, it’s almost as big as Europe, and if you take off Hawaii and Alaska, you can fit the USA inside the boundaries. On a short trip, it’s best to pick one or two states at most or you will spend most of your holiday travelling.
Australian Capital Territory
The Capital Territory may be small in size but there is plenty to see and do in Canberra and beyond.
New South Wales
From Aussies two biggest icons to the ski fields of Thredbo and the worlds second oldest National Park
Snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef then find a favourite Qld beach or island to relax on.
Uluru, Kakadu and Darwin, the Red Centre will allow you to explore Australia’s indigenous culture.
Home to our biggest wine region, the stunning Eyre Peninsular and quirky towns like Cobber Pedy.
The Apple Isle is perfect roadtripping territory with beaches, history and wilderness.
Victoria offers amazing diversity in such a small package. Australia’s sporting homeland Melbourne is also the self-proclaimed coffee capital of the county.
The state with the longest coastline offers us stunning beaches from the southwest to the Coral Coast and plenty of outback life.
The Pacific islands, New Zealand, Timor and Fiji are just some of the neighbours you should not miss.
