The unimaginable vastness of the country gives Australia – and its diverse population – much of its character. Scattered along the coasts, Australia’s cities blend a European enthusiasm for art and food with a laid-back love of sport and the outdoors. In cities, you’ll experience a blur of fashion boutiques and crowded restaurants while in the “outback” of Australia’s interior the only sounds you’ll hear are the ancient tunes of the didgeridoo, the thump of rocks under your jeep and the slow, silent swirl of outback dust. Around the coast and on the surrounding islands like Tasmania, you’ll take in the depths of a rainforest, swim, surf and snorkel in some of the most famous waters on earth including the Great Barrier Reef and experience some of the friendliest, most fun people on the planet.
