Australia Travel Guide

Land of kangaroos, the Sydney Opera House and the wild, rugged outback, Australia is a country of contrasts. From chic cosmopolitan cities to desert plains and the wilderness of the bush, no two days spent Down Under ever have to be the same.

Things to Do in Australia

Sydney makes a good starting point for any Australian adventure. Though at first glance it may seem like just another bustling megalopolis, it actually contains plenty of charm and culture, along with a handful of beautiful beaches too. Each neighborhood within Sydney has its own distinct personality -- from cute Chatswood with its quaint coffee shops and hipster vibes, to the glamorous bars and upscale dining options at Darling Harbor.

One of the best things to do in Sydney is of course to visit the iconic Sydney Opera House and the harbor bridge. Snap a selfie in front of the opera house for the obligatory 'here I am in Australia' picture, or venture inside for a more technical tour of what goes on inside. Adrenaline junkies could consider doing the 'bridge walk' -- a casual stroll thousands of feet up in the air that leads them along the top of Sydney's harbor bridge.

Of course, there is so much more to Australia than just Sydney. Other options to consider include camping and hiking in the blue mountains, spending a few days in artsy Melbourne, or venturing into the outback close to Darwin where 'roos run wild, and Ayers Rock awaits.

Best Places to Stay in Australia

Australia is home to an array of accommodation choices -- from hotels that suit all budgets, to hostels and home stays or apartment rentals. Try to cover a few cities during your adventure, and use them as a base point for accessing smaller towns, villages and natural scenery.

Best Time to Visit Australia

Remember that seasons run differently in Australia owing to the fact that the country is in the southern hemisphere. Australian spring and summer (September through to around March) are the best times to visit in order to enjoy the best temperatures and sun.
