Welcome to Australia
Australia is a wild and beautiful place, like a land whose colour palette of red outback sands and
Technicolor reefs frames sophisticated cities and soulful Indigenous stories.Probably most
Australians live along the coast, and most of these folks live in cities – 89% of Australians, in fact.
It follows that cities here are a lot of fun.So, Sydney is the glamorous poster child with world-class
beaches and an otherwise glorious setting. Seems like Melbourne is all arts, alleyways and a stellar
food scene. Brisbane is a subtropical town on the way up, Adelaide has festive grace and pubby poise.
Boom town Perth breathes West Coast optimism and Canberra showcases so many cultural treasures,
while the tropical northern frontier town of Darwin, and consequently the chilly southern sandstone city of Hobart,
couldn’t be more different.There’s a lot of tarmac across this wide brown land. From Margaret River
to Cook town, Jabiru to Dover, best way.
Wild Lands & Wildlife
Australia is an extraordinarily beautiful place,also as rich in rainforest (from Far North Queensland to
far-south Tasmania) as it is in remote rocky outcrops like Uluru, Kakadu and the Kimberley’s.
Even more the coastline, too, beset as it is with islands and deserted shores, is wild and wonderful.
Animating these splendid places is wildlife like nowhere else on the planet, a place of kangaroos and
crocodiles, of wombats and wallabies, platypus, crocodiles, dingoes and so much more. So,tracking these,
and Australia’s 700-plus bird species, is enough to unearth your inner David Attenborough, even
if you didn’t until now know you had one.Australia plates up a multicultural fusion fresh
Pacific-rim ingredients – aka ‘Mod Oz’.Seafood plays a starring role − from succulent Moreton Bay
bugs to delicate King George whiting. Of course, beer in hand, you’ll still find beef, lamb and chicken at Aussie barbecues.
