Map and Highlights

Holidays in Australia

Australia is a vast country with magnificent sights and incredible experiences. Visit some of the highlights of Australia on your first trip, from the iconic city sites in cosmopolitan Sydney to the stunning vistas of Uluru and the world-famous Great Barrier Reef, where you will be truly amazed. These destinations are a popular triple-centre, which is commonly known as ‘Sydney, Rock and Reef’, a trip we highly recommend on your first trip to Australia. These areas provide a small glimpse of Australia and will create temptation to go back and experience more.
Australia is such a vast destination that trying to do too much in one trip might mean that you miss out on some exceptional experiences, so we would recommend to see Australia in multiple trips.
Explore Perth, a totally rejuvenated and welcoming city with stunning beaches, vineyards and wildlife all within easy access. Travel in style via the Indian Pacific on a two-night, three-day epic journey experiencing the tremendous beauty of the Nullabor. One arrival into Adelaide pick up your rental car and detailed pack which takes you via the Great Ocean Road to Melbourne
