Along with the world’s most livable cities, it is no secret that Australia is renowned for its great outdoors, nature and wildlife experiences. From the grandeur of the Sydney Harbour; to the Great Barrier Reef; to driving the Great Ocean Road; there are plenty of ways to experience Australia’s unique wildlife and diverse landscapes. The aquatic and culinary experiences are pristine and diverse. Take advantage of things only found in Australia - beaches with kangaroos, reefs like Ningaloo or the Great Barrier Reef, coastal walks with wombats, and waterholes in the Outback. And the best part of Australia is the Australians, genuine and charming with an unpretentious approach to everything.
