It’s hard not to dig Australia. With its sunny climate and sunnier vibes, it rocks to its own cheerful beat, offers up some of the world’s most unforgettable sights, and ticks every adventure-travel box along the way.
Australia is all about the extremes. The world’s largest island, it occupies an area roughly the size of the USA, yet much of it is a desert wilderness.
To visit Australia is to gawp at the vast space of the Red Centre and the majesty of Uluru – formerly known as Ayers Rock – then head to the coastal fringes and soak up the sun on Manly Beach or enjoy a flat white and a friand at a Melbourne street café. Coastal culture is huge in Oz, from the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef to the pristine shores of Western Australia, via Victoria’s Twelve Apostles.
With much of the continent basking in winter sun, Australia is hard to beat as a destination during the UK’s colder months, and much of tropical Queensland enjoys year-round warmth.
