Holidays to Australia

Australian holidays are certain to provide travellers with many new experiences. It is a vast country with great cultural and ecological diversity. Each of its six states offers a different adventure for those visiting.

Queensland: Known as the Outback, Queensland is famous for being home to the Great Barrier Reef, a part of the world renowned for its unsurpassable snorkelling and scuba diving. The Gold Coast also offers some of the world’s best surfing, beautiful beaches and whale watching expeditions. Queensland has a variety of interesting sites for travellers to take in, including wildlife and adventure tours, theme parks and cultural exhibitions. It is also home to the wonderful Park Heritage Gardens.

New South Wales: Home to the beautiful city of Sydney and the famous Opera House, New South Wales is overflowing with exhilarating adventure and culture. There are many maritime museums, art houses and adventure tours to be enjoyed. For nature visits, there is the Hunter Valley Wine Country, botanical gardens, Bondi Beach and the area’s central coast that will instil a sense of what holidays to Australia are all about.

Victoria: The state is compact in size, which makes travelling from multiple destinations ideal, but do not let its small size fool you. Victoria is packed with attractions. Although most visitors flock to Melbourne, there are many other places worth exploring. The state has unique wildlife, art museums, gold rush architecture and heritage sites to enjoy.

Tasmania: This southern-most state of Australia has been a destination favourite for its low-key lifestyle. It is a place where tourists go to be rid of overpopulated cities to enjoy wilderness and nature. It is a place where Tasmanian culture forms a diverse and rich history.

South Australia: This part of Australia’s semi-desert is widely known for its wineries, namely Barossa Valley. Yet it is the driest of all the Australian states. This vastly urbanised region of the far Outback is where the capital city of Adelaide or, the “City of Churches,” can be found.

Western Australia: Enjoying holidays in this part of Australia offers visitors more than 12,000 kilometres of crystal clear coastline, coral reefs and majestic sea creatures. It is also a great place to experience some of the country’s best outback adventures.

Weather

There are more than six million visitors that take Australian holidays each year. Part of the destination draw of holidays in Australia is the weather, as there is never a bad time to visit. With the country being located “down under”, it means that the seasons are reversed from what individuals in the Northern Hemisphere are typically used to. Summer in Australia runs from December until February while winter is from June to August.

Currency

Australia’s official currency is the Australian Dollar. It consists of coins ranging from five to 50 cent pieces as well as one and two dollar denominations. The country’s (plastic) bank notes consist of five, ten, 20, 50 and 100 dollar denominations.
