Australia is a huge and exciting place to visit: you can be exploring a cultural, cosmopolitan city one day, the next driving along a dusty road in the Outback while an emu sprints along beside your ute (pick-up truck). Holidays in Australia are all about discovery, where beautiful beaches, enormous national parks, fascinating museums and thrilling festivals await intrepid travellers from all over the world.
From the pristine Great Barrier and Ningaloo Reefs, to the world’s largest monolith – Uluru – holidays in Australia are ideal for nature lovers.
Visit Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island, and you’ll find freshwater dune lakes and lush rainforest, while a sailing trip to see the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of the Whitsunday Islands will have you reaching for your camera – pics of Whitehaven beach are regularly used to promote Australia abroad.
You can also trek through the rainforests of the Kakadu and Daintree National Parks to discover crocodiles, wild horses and water buffalo, as well as kangaroos and koalas; cage dive with great white sharks in Port Lincoln; or frolic alongside playful dolphins at Monkey Mia.
Drive the Great Ocean Road, passing the limestone stacks of the Twelve Apostles, and, in winter, hike or ski in the Snowy Mountains, yet another unexpected landscape on the great island of Australia.
Australia was made for idyllic coastal trips and epic drives into the empty, seemingly endless outback. Whether you have two days or two weeks behind the wheel, one itineraries should suit.Read moreabout 7 Australian road trips to add to your itinerary
