The vast territory of Australia might be a bit overwhelming when deciding where to stay but here are some tips to help you decide. There is nothing to worry about!

The area and getting around

What colourful destination will you choose?

Australia is a country of contrasts and colourful landscapes. From the turquoise waters of the Great Barrier Reef to the cotton candy-hued lakes and beaches of Balos Bay or Lake Hillier, the bright red centre and the multicoloured marine life of the rich seabed along the entire coastline outlined with cliffs. Let Jervis Bay captivate you with its bioluminescent phenomenon. You will not believe it until you see it. Plan your trip from coast to coast, to the outback, to natural parks and jaw-dropping islands.

Australia, diverse and unforgettable destinations

Explore the west side of the country and discover its wildlife or visit the north and enjoy the culture of Darwin and the crocodile jumping. Further down, go to where the outback meets the tropics in Katherine River and Nitmiluk National Park. Escape the crowds and immerse into Kangaroo Island lifestyle in southern Australia or spend a day or two in Whitsunday Island or in Hamilton Island. Fly from city to city, drive your own car or enjoy a campervan trip around the most iconic cities and towns of the country. Take a tour to those beaches only accessible by boat or enjoy whale watching and fishing tours. Experience Oz!

Top 5 travel tips in Australia

1. Underwater art, a unique experience

The Great Barrier reef is home to the most amazing Museum of Underwater Art (MOUA) that wants to inspire and highlight the need for conservation of the wonderful UNESCO-listed reef.

Snorkelling or diving, you will enjoy this extraordinary art beneath the waves. One-of-a-kind experience!

2. Uluru, admire the red centre

Right in the heart of Australia, Ayers Rock is home to the huge sacred sandstone monolith, known as the resting place of ancient spirits. Watch the sun go down as it creates incredible shades of red or take a helicopter scenic flight and get mesmerised by the stunning beauty of the Indigenous Protected area and the Kata-Tjuta National Park. As a sacred Aboriginal place, you are not allowed to climb the rock since 2017 but you can walk the 6 miles loop around it.

3.Spot the most fascinating animals

Whether you choose a wildlife sanctuary or a natural setting, Australia is the best scenery for a unique wildlife experience.

4. Enjoy a performance at the Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is an icon of the city and Australia itself.

New South Wales has dramatic scenery, impressive cliffs, beautiful waterfalls, lots of eucalyptus forests and many green areas and gardens.

The Blue Mountains National Park has a lot of bushwalking trails for hiking lovers, the Giant Stairway with 998 stairs and the three rocks known as the Three Sisters that you will see perfectly from Echo Point, as you enter the park.
