Great Southern Land
Australia, our home. We’ve left this rugged, red, dusty country many times, but we always love returning home. There is nowhere else in the world like Australia that offers so many sights from dazzling beaches to rugged coastlines and weather worn rock formations to iconic cities and massive tides.
Travel Guide: AUSTRALIA
From ancient Aboriginal culture tied into the land itself through to modern, diverse coastal cities, Australia is full of the unexpected. Characterised as the oldest, flattest, driest and smallest continent in the world, it’s the perfect country to plan a road trip and lose yourself in the ever-changing landscape for months at a time.
You could meet Australia’s unique animals at Wild Life Sydney Zoo, hit the waves at Surfers Paradise, get lost amongst street art in Melbourne, fly over the Bungle Bungle ranges and marvel at the beehive-like formations, taste Aussie wines in the Barossa Valley or defy death with Australia’s ancient apex predator, the ‘salty’, at Crocosaurus Cove’s Cage of Death.

Known as a country where just about everything can kill you, Australia has 21 of the 25 most venomous snakes in the world. However, it’s also home to a diverse animal population with many that are only found here, from the well-known kangaroo and koala to the lesser known quokka and Tasmanian devil.
