Destination Highlights

Melbourne

It’s a reminder of the immensity of Australia. Melbourne is a very cultured city with wide streets and boulevards, trams (streetcars) that are an efficient mode of public transport. A well defined river frontage and docklands precinct, street cafes, excellent shopping and friendly, interesting people make it well worth including in your Australian trip of a lifetime. It is a city of contrasts, showing you the locals at work and play.


Tasmania

The island of Tasmania is an undiscovered movie set. Explore the highlands and feel like you’ve gone back a hundred thousand years, cruise the diverse, rich and plentiful countryside and quaint small villages. If an urban jungle is more your style, hang out with a collectic mix of talented and friendly locals. It is surrounded by and covered in crystal clear water and wrapped in the world’s purest air. There’s no other place on earth where you will find it all. Drive door to door, taste it from the producer or settle down in a restaurant that will simply dial your taste buds to eleven.


Kangaroo Island

Kangaroos in the fields, koalas in the trees, Sea Lions on the beaches, and Emu in the forests. Kangaroo Island has Wildlife in their natural environment and it’s much larger than you might think when looking at the map. It is Australia’s third largest island, coming after Tasmania and Melville Island. Staying at one of the excellent hotels, lodges or accommodations can really show you some different aspects of Australia.


Adelaide

Adelaide is one of those cities that is just the perfect size: large enough to have character, culture and services, yet still small and regional enough to offer the experience of running into real locals. A well planned and set out city, it is easy to get around on foot. Catch a tram (streetcar) to the seaside suburb of Glenelg. Enjoy lunch looking out over the Gulf St Vincent, and walk on one of the excellent city beaches of the area. Architecturally, Adelaide is a gem: many of the houses lining its streets have a very distinctive sandstone, brick and bluestone combination of building materials that show off a distinct Adelaide character.


Sydney

Sydney has a feel to it like no other city – light reflected on water, buildings and bushland fringing the bright blue of the Harbour, ferries zipping around, seagulls squealing, excitement in the air. Local Sydney-siders from all walks of life and visitors from all over the world rub shoulders in a good natured lifestyle. Life is good at Travel Destination Sydney. Sydney is a great city in which to spend time wandering, while discovering the historic nooks and crannies that make it so interesting. The Rocks Historic Precinct has been well preserved, Circular Quay is a focal point for Sydney Ferries, and the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge dominate its centre.
