Experiencing Australia should be on every travel bucket list; a place where natural wonders never cease to amaze and cosmopolitan cities will entice you to wander their streets for hours, camera in hand.
Because of the air miles, here at Inspiring Travel Company, we suggest you book in extra time for your bespoke discovery to Australia, ensuring your trip to the other side of the world includes all the major highlights you wish to see, with time to spare for the new ones you’ll unearth on your journey.
So where do you start? Fly into Sydney
and you can head to Bondi to watch the surfers, take a boat trip past the Opera House or venture into the Blue Mountains
to abseil down dramatic cliff faces. Travel north to Queensland
up the Gold
and Sunshine Coasts,
where you’ll reach trendy Brisbane
, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef
and its ‘paradise found’ Whitsunday Islands. Make time for a trip to Fraser Island,
the world’s largest sand island and a natural wonder, on your route to sunny Cairns
Your Australian journey could then take you anti-clockwise around this vast island to Darwin
, a centre of incredible history, with a trip to the country’s famed Alice Springs
and epic Uluru
. On the western coast there’s Perth
where a visit to the WACA could be on your itinerary, as well as a stay at one of Margaret River’s stunning vineyards.
Along the south coast you’ll discover the museums and galleries of Adelaide
and incredible wildlife on Kangaroo Island,
and then on of course to Melbourne
, a favourite with visitors to Australia for its trendy eateries along the Yarra River.
If you have the time, an adventure to Tasmania, the ‘island of inspiration’, will reward you with a wealth of natural wonders.
The tropical northern half of Australia is best visited in its dry season of May to October. Southern Australia experiences four seasons, the reverse of the UK, so expect hot summers, December to February and cool winters, June to August. Spring and Autumn are generally very pleasant times to visit, ideal for touring holidays.
At Inspiring Travel Company, we can create a bespoke experiential holiday to Australia for you and yours, including all these amazing highlights and more. Teamed with our outstanding collection of hotels, you’ll be sure to have the holiday of a lifetime.
