Australia is a wild and beautiful place, a land whose colour palette of red outback sands and Technicolor reefs frames sophisticated cities and soulful Indigenous stories.
Most Australians live along the coast, 89% in cities. Sydney is glamorous with world-class beaches. Melbourne is all arts. Brisbane is a subtropical town. Boomtown Perth breathes optimism, and the capital, Canberra, showcases so many cultural treasures.
Australia is an extraordinarily beautiful place, as rich in rainforest (from Far North Queensland to far-south Tasmania) as it is in rocky outcrops like Uluru, Kakadu and the Kimberleys. The coastline is wild and wonderful. Wildlife here is like nowhere else on the planet, a place of kangaroos, crocodiles, wombats, wallabies, dingoes (wild dogs), and 700 bird species!
You will love this country: the wild lands of the Outback, the remote route along the Gulf of Carpentaria, or Lake Victoria in the South near Timber Creek.
As for food, Australia plates up a multicultural fusion. Seafood plays a starring role, not to mention succulent Moreton Bay bugs, beer or sauvignon blanc to go with beef, lamb and chicken at Aussie barbecues. Tasmania produces outstanding whisky too. And if you need a coffee, you'll find cafes everywhere, coffee machines in petrol stations, and baristas in downtown coffee carts!
