The Land Down Under. Australia offers a wealth of unforgettable experiences from the wild Outback to iconic cities, stunning natural beauty to world-class architecture.
Stand in awe of the red rock formations of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Catch a magical sunrise or sunset, explore caves and see ancient rock art from the indigenous Anangu tribes. Alice Springs is the heart of Australia's Red Center, which holds stunning desert landscapes, local wildlife, and is the home to many Aboriginal people.
Begin your Australia tour in the country's most famous city. Explore the iconic Sydney Opera House on foot or sail through the harbor for remarkable views of the Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge, then catch some golden rays on Bondi Beach. It's a quick trip from the city to eucalyptus-covered Blue Mountains National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of the Three Sisters rock formations and Bridal Veil Falls.
Continue on to the nation’s capital city, Canberra, home to some of Australia's most important cultural institutions and the modernist Parliament House.
Melbourne is known for its food and art scenes. Here you'll find cutting-edge street art and theater productions as well as Victorian architecture, charming arcades, and laneways. Get a taste of the city's café society and farm-to-table cuisine at Queen Victoria Market. Visit Phillip Island or Summerland Beach to see the world’s smallest penguins. Or explore the Great Ocean Road to see the stunning coastline and the Twelve Apostles rock formations.
This northern coastal city is the perfect launching point to explore the Great Barrier Reef. Cruise this vibrant ecosystem in a glass-bottom boat or dive in and go snorkeling, if you’re feeling adventurous. In laid-back Cairns, you can also discover incredible wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, tropical birds, giant spiders, and saltwater crocodiles.
