Australia Travel Guide

by our Australia expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyRed desert and golden beaches are just two of the wonders which spring to mind at the mention of Australia. There is so much to take in on this vast continent (Perth is closer to Jakarta than to Sydney!) but there are some things you just shouldn’t miss. Australia has some great cities, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge perhaps making Sydney the most popular. The great outdoors though is where Australia really shines and no trip is complete without venturing deep into the Red Centre to Uluru (Ayer’s Rock). This is as remote as it gets, but worth the journey if just to see the colours change at sunrise. The tropical rainforests of northern Queensland make the perfect backdrop for the awe inspiring Great Barrier Reef, where even novice snorkellers can sample the beauty of the reef. One thing is guaranteed, one visit to Australia is never enough!
