The Land Down Under, 'Straya' or Aus, whatever you want to call it, Australia is like nowhere else. There are many reasons to travel to Australia. Even excluding the glorious weather, this vast and diverse country is packed full of wild adventures, and the famous Aussie lifestyle is envied all over the world. Tropical beaches, deserted red Outback plains, cosmopolitan cities, Australia has it all.
Australia is famous for its long summer months. From November through to April, both the sun and the Australians come out to play. Considered a paradise by foreigners, Aussies are often questioned why they would ever leave Australia’s weather behind. Even in the winter months, most areas in Australia will still be enjoying sun, sea and surf. With deserts, rainforests, beaches, and even snowfields, Australia will cater to your desires all year round.
With international airports in each major city, Australia is well connected with the rest of the world.
