Australia - Touring Holidays

An escorted tour to Australia offers the chance to visit a vast country of diverse landscapes, sublime landmarks and exceptional natural wonders.

A must-see for any traveller ticking off this once-in-a-lifetime destination is Ayers Rock – this enormous chunk of sandstone, also known by its Aboriginal name of Uluru, is a mesmerising sight at any time of the day but visits at sunset and sunrise are really special. Hues of blue and purple can be seen when the sun dips behind it at the end of the day, while its terracotta-coloured surface is bathed in fiery red light first thing in the morning. 

Outback town of Alice Springs

Equally enigmatic are the Olgas – steep-sided monoliths which are believed to have started life as one huge piece of rock, just like their neighbour, but have weathered over millions of years to form this collection of 36 mystical domes. 

The outback town of Alice Springs is surrounded by scorched deserts and boasts a mix of Aboriginal and European colonial history. It’s the starting point of many an outback adventure, and highlights on most traveller’s wish list are the Flying Doctor base and the famous School of the Air, providing vital services to those living in the many remote and rural areas of Australia.

The Great Barrier Reef

From towering geological sites and vast deserts to a magical world under the sea – the Great Barrier Reef is another of Australia’s most stunning natural beauties, where an abundance of colourful marine life, including 1,500 species of fish, thrives amongst tropical islands. A catamaran cruise with the chance to snorkel in the warm waters is an unforgettable experience, but even if you don’t want to get wet, you can still marvel at the sights on a semi-submersible submarine.

Sydney Opera House

Iconic sights abound in the country’s vibrant cities too, with Sydney’s famous Opera House and Harbour Bridge among the best known. From Melbourne you can head to Phillip Island to see the ‘penguin parade’, when hundreds of these delightful creatures waddle their way from the sea to their sand-dune burrows, and be sure to laze on Perth’s white-sand beaches – Western Australia boasts some of the world’s most beautiful and, of course, the weather rarely disappoints.
