Useful Australia Travel Articles
Whether you are a seasoned traveller or first time visitor, a luxury traveller or backpacker, this vast continent has something for everyone. Classic tailor-made holiday itineraries we would suggest might include landmarks such as the Kimberleys in Western Australia, the Flinders Ranges in South Australia or Uluru (Ayers Rock) in the Northern Territories. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World – see and experience it to believe it. Likewise the stunning views of Sydney’s Opera House from the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge are simply breathtaking. It’s a fact that Australia has more than 10,000 beaches – from the crystal clear waters of the Whitsunday Islands to the world class surf at Byron Bay or Noosa.
From the tropical rainforests and national parks to the dusty red roads of the Outback, the diversity of the scenery will amaze you. You can be sure you will in some way be touched by the ancient Aboriginal ‘rock art’ and their unique culture that goes back over 50,000 years. Do you like wine? Some of the world’s best is produced in the southern half of Australia with vineyards such as Barossa, Penfolds and Jacobs Creek. If you need some good advice about which ones are best, let us know and we can advise you.
Let the Trails of Australia team help you plan your dream trip to the best holiday destinations in Australia. We’ll ensure your travel itinerary includes visits to both the top Australian tourism Meccas and the memorable “off the beaten track” places.
