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, courtesy of the multicultural population, or head to Sydney to tour iconic landmarks like the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. The other six states (and two territories) offer endless activities for inspired travellers. Your first trip around Australia won’t be your last.
