Millions of international tourists visit Australia every year and there are hundreds of good reasons for this. Australia is one of the safest destinations in the world with a stable system of government and a transport infrastructure that makes it easy for travelers to get from place to place and a selection of hotel accommodation that is hard to beat. It is a place where the people are friendly and the scenery and wildlife is repeated nowhere else on earth. Australia is one of the earths oldest continents geographically and which leads to a landscape that is completely unique. Being an island continent, it has thousands of kilometers of coastline and endless numbers of beaches. The Australian people tend to live along its coastline and the ocean and water sports play a large part in the lifestyle of all Australians.
For the international tourist there are always a number of things that come to mind when they think about Australia, be it a cuddly Koala or Kangaroo, the Great Barrier Reef or the Sydney Opera House or Ayers Rock in the great Australian Outback. Because of the huge distances, it is necessary to carefully plan your Australian holiday. Most tourists enter Australia through the international airport in Sydney, there is a lot of Sydney accommodation to choose from. While in New South Wales the best places to visit are the Blue Mountains, the Hunter Valley, the Snowy Mountains skiing resorts of Thredbo, Mt Selwyn and Perisher, the northern beach towns and cities like Port Stephens, Coffs Harbour and Tweed Heads.
Across the border in Queensland is where the tourist will really get down to the Queensland travel business. Places like the Gold Coast with its high rise accommodation resorts and the Sunshine Coast in the south east corner are always popular surfing destinations and both have lots of fabulous beaches. As you travel north you pass by Hervey Bay and Fraser Island and then the Great Barrier Reef begins and travels parallel to the Queensland coast all the way to Cape York in the far north. As you travel further north you will find the magnificent Whitsundays region with is fantastic island resorts like Hamilton Island resort and Hayman Island resort, 3 day sailing cruises and further north, the cities of Cairns and Port Douglas which are located in the tropics and close to the beautiful Daintree rainforest.
Travelling across the top end is a great place to begin exploring Australia and will bring you to the Northern Territory. Most visitors fly into Darwin and commence their exploration of the outback from there. This is a great place to start a circumnavigation of Australia by campervan or motorhome or even bicycle. Some of the special places to visit in the territory include Kakadu national Park, Katherine gorge, Kings canyon, Alice Springs and of course Ayers Rock. Western Australia takes up more that one third of Australia’s land mass and attracts tourists to see places like the Kimberley region, the Bungle Bungle Ranges, the Pilbara, Perth and the south west region with the wineries around Margaret River and then the southern ocean coastline and the towns of Albany and Esperance.
South Australia is quite different to the other states and ranges from vast deserts to fertile river lands and beautiful places like the wineries in the Barossa Valley and the windswept beauty of Kangaroo Island with its largely pristine environment and wildlife. Adelaide is the capital and is centrally located and a great place for a base while you explore the state. Tasmania is Australia’s island state and lies of the south east coast. A short car ferry ride across Bass Strait from Melbourne will land you in the north of the state from where you can set out to explore it beauty. Places that you must see include the Gordon and Franklin River systems in the wilderness areas on the west coast, Cradle Mountain National Park in the midlands and the city of Hobart in the south. Tasmania has enormous historical significance for Australians with the original convict settlements located at Port Arthur in the south east of the state. The east and north coast are dotted with beautiful fishing villages, fantastic coastal scenery and some of the oldest forests left on the planet. Back across Bass Straight is the state of Victoria and its most famous tourist draw cards include “The Great Ocean Road” which runs around the south west coast, The Grampians and the alpine country including Falls Creek, Mt Hotham and Mt Buller, of the southern side of the Snowy Mountains.
