With no shortage of great places to visit, choosing your next holiday destination can be a real headache. If you’re travelling with a group, the decision only becomes more difficult, especially if you each have different tastes. Whether you’re a thrill seeker looking to try something new or just looking for a relaxing place to top up your tan on the beach, though, Australia has something to offer for everybody.
Exploring the Australian Outback
Australia is famous around the world for its vast landscape, home to a large array of varied wildlife. From the tropical savannas in the north of the country to the arid deserts further south, there are few places in the world better suited for the perfect road trip. For those who’d rather not have to worry about things possibly going wrong, though, holidaymakers like Round the World Experts can offer you a ready-made itinerary that covers all of the highlights, including watching the sun go down on top of the Ayers Rock or exploring the ancient Aboriginal art of the Kakadu National Park.
Scuba Diving in the Great Barrier Reef
Australia’s iconic sights aren’t only limited to what’s on land either. The Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland, is home to the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef system, stretching over 1,400 miles. The vast biodiversity on offer is made all the better thanks to the warm, clear waters and accessibility afforded by the live-aboard boats that are available to rent. Strapping on your wetsuit and getting up close and personal is by far the best way to experience this unique part of the globe. For those not comfortable in the water, though, there are regular boat excursions and it’s even possible to walk along the reef during low-tide.
Visiting its Vibrant Cities
Australia isn’t just a place for nature lovers and adventurers though. It’s also home to a number of vibrant cities that each have their own unique culture. Sydney and Melbourne have a friendly rivalry over which is the arts capital of the country. Both house a thriving musical and theatrical scene that are worth visiting for anyone interested in the arts. Meanwhile, Darwin, in the north, is known as the most laid-back and relaxed city in the country. It has a near-tropical climate and is home to the largest indigenous population of any city in Australia. Wherever you visit, though, one thing that everywhere has in common is the friendly nature of the locals.
