Sweeping landscapes, deserts, miles of pristine beaches, cities alive with energy and flair, Australia really does have it all. Home to the world’s oldest Indigenous culture, Australia’s spiritual beginnings meld into modern life – but despite its urban landscapes, the great outdoors is never far from an Australian’s mind. From Uluru in the centre of the large continent, to countless beaches dotted down the east coast, hop over to Tasmania for an experience filled with food and culture, and make sure you glimpse the Sydney Opera House at least once.
