Arriving at Australia

The most popular arrival destinations in Australia are the major cities on the east coast, and cheap flights to Sydney and Melbourne are easy to find. Kingsford Smith in NSW and Tullamarine in Victoria are both world-class airports with all facilities including a Wi-Fi service, access for disabled people, currency exchange, ATM cash machines and information kiosks in both domestic and international terminals.

Frequent bus shuttle services run to both cities, and limousines and taxis are available. Kingsford Smith also connects to the city via rail. The service is regular and takes a short time. Tullamarine offers the very affordable Skybus service every ten minutes for the 25 km trip to the city centre.

Getting Around Australia

Depending on which city you travel to, you'll find there are a good number of transport options available. All major cities host reliable train and bus services and many car rental options.

Australia's extensive railway network can take you between the major cities and most places in between, but where there's no rail station, you can book a cheap flight to a regional airport and hire a vehicle, or book a coach from a major city to get where you want to go. All capital cities in Australia have a wide variety of accommodation options, which range from 5 star luxury hotels to backpacker hostels, and everything in between.

Main Attractions in Australia

What isn't there to see? Australia has a wide and diverse range of things to do and places to go, but here are some of the best: Sydney Harbour by night is something special, and is host to the iconic Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, cruises are available and highly recommended!

The interior of Australia is a hauntingly beautiful place, from the majesty of Uluru, to the great, dividing range in the east, with its famous Three Sisters rock formation in the Blue Mountains. Australia has Nature reserves, National parks for bushwalking, great surfing beaches and a lot more besides!

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

All of Australia's capital cities are excellent for both shopping and nightlife. Each one has its own unique flavour of shops, malls, restaurants and places of interest that you'll love! The inner cities of Sydney and Melbourne cater for all tastes with fashion boutiques, world-class restaurants and great entertainment nightly, Brisbane has the jumping Fortitude Valley where there's a wealth of food and local entertainment and shopping to be had.

Airfares to Adelaide, Darwin, Perth and Hobart can vary, so check with your travel agent before deciding on your destination. Wherever it is in this vast beautiful country you end up, you're in for the holiday of a lifetime!
