About - Australia
Often referred to as the Island continent or the land down under, Australia is a large island country located to the south of Indonesia with the Indian Ocean on its western coast and the Pacific Ocean on its eastern seaboard. It is a nation of diverse landscapes and spectacular natural beauty. It’s major cities and the bulk of the population are distributed around its vast coastline with much of the interior either vast desert or used for farming and stock.

Australia is an extremely popular tourist destination not least of which is due to its spectacular natural attractions. Amongst these are a number of World Heritage listed sights including the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory, the Blue Mountains area in New South Wales, Uluru in the centre of Australia and the Daintree Rainforests of Queensland.

Australia’s warm Mediterranean climate combined with a range of brilliant beaches provides a brilliant environment for Australia’s renowned beach culture. Whether it be a recognised surf beach, a gentle family friendly beach or a secluded hidden cove, there is a beach for every taste and requirement.

The major cities of Australia are becoming some of the most recognised tourist and business cities in the World. Brimming with culture and the arts, world renowned sporting events and a vast array of attractions, cities such as Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide are great tourist cities.

Although significantly less populated than the coastal regions of Australia, the outback is now a major tourism draw with many tourists arriving through the major centres and then heading off into Australia’s great red outback.
