Australia is as big as your imagination, and just as vivid; where nature is weird and wonderful, and where man’s most indelible mask has been made by the Aborigines, whose legacy – spanning thousands of years – is felt everywhere.

"They call it ‘the lucky country’, and it’s easy to see why. A place made for exploring, it’s fully-equipped for getting out there and doing whatever you want to do. "

Both vast and small, ancient and recent – a country with fewer people than Sri Lanka in an area the size of the United States; the world’s oldest continent, yet its most recently ‘discovered’ by European settlers.

The sheer size of Australia and its variety of experiences means that you’ll be drawn back to explore time and time again. Those experiences range enormously: from its sophisticated, cultured, coastal and laid-back cities; its paradise beaches, the Great Barrier Reef and rainforest that is Queensland; the beautiful Blue Mountains and vineyards of the South-East, to its famed Red Centre to see mysterious and mythical Uluru? And that’s just scratching the surface.

Creating special moments

  1. Charismatic Coastline

    Charismatic Coastline

    From sheer cliffs, Victoria’s Great Ocean Road snakes its way down along some of the world’s best coastline, past the Shipwreck Coast and the famous Twelve Apostles rock stacks. The scenery is jaw-dropping; the sunsets breathtaking.

  2. Oz’s Great and Powerful

    Oz’s Great and Powerful

    Sydney, Oz’s largest city, boasts two of travel’s finest icons. A show at the striking Opera House – with five theatres, there are many to choose from – is always memorable, and if you’ve a head for heights, climb the 134-metre-high Harbour Bridge.

  3. Mololiths and Motorbikes

    Mololiths and Motorbikes

    Uluru is famous for its ever-changing hues and revered by Aborigines. And how better to see it than on the back of a soft-tail Harley-Davidson, as passenger or pilot? With the wind in your hair and the magic of the monolith, you’ll never forget it!
