Why flee for foreign encounters when there’s so much to see and do in your own backyard on a tour of Australia? This island nation is more than just home: it’s exceptionally diverse, multicultural and downright gorgeous. From the soaring rainforest-clad mountains to the scorching red deserts of the outback and the beautiful blue seas that give life to our world-famous Great Barrier Reef, that’s just the start of it. What better way to experience it all than with a tour guide to lead the way?
Who could resist the famous beach culture of Australia? Fringed by over 25,000km of spectacular coastline, you’ll discover sweeping golden bays, rocky coves offering panoramic views and fabulous surf beaches boasting world-class waves. Explore it all with a tour that takes you snorkelling through the amazing coral reefs of Queensland, riding a camel along the shores of Broome’s notorious Cable Beach, or surfing down sand dunes at beautiful Port Stephens. In between stops you could be kicking back in cafe at the Gold Coast, meeting the penguins at Phillip Island, or taking a whale-watching tour off the South Australian coastline.
Unless you’ve witnessed the harsh expansive landscapes of the Aussie outback, you haven’t truly experienced our own country. So get to know the heart of the country with a trip to iconic Uluru and immerse yourself in the dreamtime stories of Australia’s Indigenous culture. Spend a few nights hiking through the desert and camping beneath the stars, or take an Outback tour in style with air-conditioned coaches and scenic flights. From the crocodile shows of Alice Springs to the breathtaking views of Katherine Gorge and unique towns like Coober Pedy, you’ll never forget your time in the Outback.
If you’re looking for a slice of city life, you simply can’t go past the cosmopolitan delights of capitals such as Sydney and Melbourne. Revel in top-notch shopping and dining, catch a world-class sporting event or relax at a show. From laidback Perth to historic Hobart, wherever your Australian tour takes you, you’ll discover a unique piece of local history and culture.
