Few countries are as culturally rich or geographically blessed as the Land Down Under. Traverse the island nation from the remote Cape York Peninsula, down to the eucalypt forests of southern Tasmania, and prepare to be blown away by the landscapes that await. Think: pristine beaches, red deserts, cosmopolitan cities and remote outback plains. But Australia is much more than a hit list of beautiful sights; in fact, the country hums with thousands of years of history and is home to one of the world’s oldest continuous civilisations.
Hit up Melbourne for your fill of top-notch food or head to Sydney to see iconic landmarks up close. But Australia is much more than these city centres: the other four states (and two territories) offer endless activities for inspired travellers who want to venture off the beaten path. Your first trip around Australia won’t be your last.
