AUSTRALIA

Workin' It Down Under

The Land Down Under, 'Straya' or Aus...whatever you want to call it, Australia is one big adventure. We could go on for days about the reasons to travel to Australia; even excluding the glorious weather, this huge country is packed full of wild adventures and  the famous Aussie lifestyle is envied all over the world.

Workin' it down under

One the main appeals of packing your bags and flying to Australia, is the famous Aussie lifestyle that's envied across the world. Impromptu beach barbies, catching the early morning surf, weekend road trips into the Outback and the infectious buzz of Australia's cities - it's no wonder that everyone wants to be workin’ it down under. Every city has it's own unique charm, from the roof top bars of Melbourne to the palm-lined promenades of Cairns.

How to get there

With international airports in each major city, Australia is well connected with the rest of the world. Sydney is the most popular destination to fly into, although Melbourne and Brisbane also have large airports welcoming tourists from all over the world. Brace yourself; it’s a long flight to Australia, but we work with top airlines to ensure that your journey is as comfortable as possible.

WHERE TO GO IN AUSTRALIA

Sydney & New South Wales

Sydney is Australia’s most iconic city. From the white arcs of the Opera House and the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, to the surfer's paradise of Bondi Beach, Sydney is one of a kind. Soak up Sydney's vibrant nightlife and bustling city surroundings, or head further out to explore endless golden coastlines, rolling valleys of vineyards, lush green forests and to hike the Blue Mountains.

Victoria's regions are diverse and beautiful. Travel the world famous Great Ocean Road, see amazing Aussie wildlife on Phillip Island, walk in ancient rainforests. Melbourne is also a great place for art lovers, fashionistas, foodies, coffee drinkiers and Aussie Rules football. Use Melbourne as your base to explore the Great Ocean Road by campervan or by booking a self-drive trip.

Cairns, Brisbane & Queensland

Introducing Queensland, Australia's epic sunshine state - from Brisbane's buzzing city scene to the natural beauty of Fraser Island, Queensland pretty much covers everything you need to experience the best of Australia and more. Go snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef, sail the Whitsundays or learn to surf at Surfer's Paradise!

Adelaide & South Australia

Commonly known as ‘Radelaide’, the ‘City of Churches’, and the ‘Festival State’, Adelaide is one of Australia’s more unusual cities. With a slightly slower pace of living, Adelaide is about as relaxed as it gets. Relax on the beach or soak up the chilled vibes on Jetty Road. Just an hour north of Adelaide lays the famous Barossa Valley, a wine region producing some of Australia’s finest wines.
Visit South Australia

Western Australia

Did you know Perth has 19 beaches? or that you could head on a guided tour of some of Australia's finest wildlife parks? With so much more to do that simply basking in the sunshine, Western Australia pretty much has you covered when it comes to going on a great Aussie adventure.
