The special essence of Australia is vastness and diversity, from deserts, coral reefs, tall forests and snow-covered mountains to multicultural, vibrant cities.

Coastal cities draw tourists and natives alike, with their glorious beaches, sociable atmosphere and variety of attractions. Visit the sun-kissed harbour city of Sydney or dynamic Melbourne. Sample Australian wines, enjoy a legendary Australian barbeque and get to know the friendly locals. From Margaret River to Cooktown, Jabiru to Dover, one of the best ways to really appreciate Australia is by open road. Hire a car and travel from town to town, or opt for a 4×4 and head off-road into Australia’s national parks and secluded natural corners, witnessing all that this vast country has to offer along the way.
