Our neighbours over the ditch are blessed with rainforests, deserts, bustling cities jam-packed with gourmet restaurants, high-end stores and bargain markets, surrounded by vineyards, cut through with cruise-able rivers and bordered by beautiful beaches. Whether you want a big-city break, a stunning beach holiday, a bareboat charter yacht around the Whitsundays, or a thrill-seeking holiday in the parks on the Gold Coast, Australia has a vast array of activities only a few hours flight away.
