Vibrant cities, coastal gems, captivating outback, unique wildlife, art and cultural experiences — it's all here, come and explore our amazing country.
Discover Australia's most iconic attractions.
Sydney, Australia's oldest capital city is home to some of the world's most iconic attractions. Blessed with a stunning natural harbour and iconic landmarks — the Sydney Harbour Bridge and architectural wonder of the Sydney Opera House. Relax on a leisurely cruise on the spectacular harbour and wander through Sydney's oldest historic area — The Rocks, with its charming sandstone cottages set amongst hidden cobblestone laneways and historic pubs. Set in the heart of the city lies a natural oasis brimming with bright colours — the Royal Botanic Garden. Of the 10,000+ beaches across Australia (more beaches than any other country in the world), Sydney's Bondi Beach has earned its iconic reputation with its proximity to the city, 1km of sweeping white-sand and dining choices ranging from trendy laid-back cafes to world-class restaurants. Further afield, explore the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, named for their blue haze created by the mist expelled from gumtrees, or sample local wines and produce in Australia's oldest wine region — the Hunter Valley.
Lose and find yourself in the Australian Outback. Discover the unspoiled majesty of the Red Centre, a place rich in Aboriginal history and rugged natural beauty. From the awe inspiring landscape of Uluru, a huge monolith rising 348 metres from the desert, is said to be 500 million years old. The colour catches the light and weather with shades so vivid they upstage the sunset. Explore the many caves to view the sacred Aboriginal rock art and learn of its great spiritual and cultural significance to the Anangu people — traditional owners of the land. Just as impressive is nearby Kata Tjuta (formerly known as the Olgas), the Aboriginal name means 'many heads' — with the 36 weathered rock domes soaring up to 546 metres above the surrounding plain. Take a walk through the sheer walls of the domes to experience this amazing landscape.
The city of Cairns is the gateway to Queensland's tropical north where the rainforest meets the reef. From the time you arrive in Cairns you will feel the tropical laid-back atmosphere with its outdoor lifestyle and a distinctive multicultural mix. Cool off in the sparkling Esplanade Lagoon or visit one of the nearby beaches. Bustling markets, trendy bars and outdoor eateries are dotted along the Esplanade and a floating fishing trawler serves the freshest local prawns and seafood in town! Enjoy a catamaran cruise to the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkel or dive among the coral gardens and colourful fish. Glide above the rainforest canopy on the Skyrail Cableway, stop off to walk through the beautiful palms and giant ferns. Explore Kuranda, the village in the rainforest or shop at the local markets for Aboriginal artefacts. Connect with culture, watch an Aboriginal Dance performance; learn to throw a boomerang and see iconic Australian wildlife up close at this authentically Australian destination.
