REASONS TO VISIT AND LOVE AUSTRALIA
The perfect way to plan your next trip
A trip to Australia is an unforgettable experience. Whether it's going to be your first time visiting, or if you're a regular traveller - you will never, ever run out of places to see and things to do. Australia can be visited on the lowest budget, or at the highest end of luxury and anywhere in between. So start making that list of sights you want to photograph, activities you need to experience, and food you want to eat as you begin planning your next visit to the land down under!
These are just some of the thousands of reasons for you to visit and love Australia:
Australia prides itself on home grown fresh food, and some of the best restaurants you'll find anywhere in the world. Australia does not really have its own style of cuisine - although "snags on the barbie" (translates to sausages on the barbecue) comes close!
Being such a multicultural nation, you'll find food of just about every imaginable taste and style; from authentic Thai and Chinese restaurants, to steakhouses and beachside bistros. You don't have to spend a fortune to enjoy high quality food on your Australian vacation. A $5 lunch from the fish and chip shop can be just as memorable as lunch at a five star restaurant on Sydney harbour.
Australia only has a few major cities compared to a country such as the USA. Every state's capital city is the central place to be, but some states have smaller cities that are also well worth your visit. You already know about Australia's most famous cities like Sydney and Melbourne, so why not consider some of the other cities you might never have heard of?
Consider Newcastle in NSW which is known for its superb cafe culture without the mega crowds of Sydney, or Canberra (the country's political centre where Parliament House sits) where you can visit museums, nature reserves and Parliament itself. Geelong in Victoria provide an exciting alternative to Melbourne. All of these smaller cities are easily accessible by car - so make sure you get out there and explore away from the crowds of the biggest cities!
Did you know that it snows in some parts of the Australia? Yes! If you visit in the middle of the year during Winter, you can experience Australian snow in locations such as the mountains and central highlands of Tasmania, Victorian alpine areas such as Falls Creek and Mt Hotham, and Mount Kosciuszko in NSW. Many snow areas of eastern Australia have world class ski resorts you book into, or simply take a day trip and enjoy the stunning snowy landscape of an Australian winter.
The reasons to visit and love Australia provide a never ending list and this is just the beginning!
