Australia is big. We mean really big. It’s the largest island in the world, wider than the distance between London and Moscow, has 10,000 beaches and produces 1.35 trillion bottles of wine a year (no wonder 50,000 people a week over stay their tourist visas!).
The sheer distances in involved can be daunting for travellers wanting to see more of the country and not everyone has 3 months to drive around its 567,338 miles of roads. One way around, or over, this is to grab one of our exclusive multi stop tickets! Here are a couple of route ideas…
Supping the local brew is one of the true joys of travelling, be it a cold Chang on the beaches of Koh Samui, a green tea on the Great Wall or taking part in a traditional Kava ceremony in Fiji. But at what point do you draw the line?

Over the past few years I have seen and explored more than my fair share of America and my state count is getting closer to completion, “from California to New York Island”!
