If you are planning to visit Australia you have come to the right place for Australia tourism. There is much for the tourist in Australia to do and Australia attractions includes climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge in an attractive grey jumpsuit? Or join the 2 million Australia tourists who visit the Great Barrier Reef. This is one mind-blowing experience, and truly one of the natural wonders of the world. All on this the best Australia travel guide. Do use the Australia travel search above or the site map to find complete Australia information.


Australia accommodation is plentiful and cheap. From house swap holidays to hotels and backpacker hostels the standards are good.

Australian restaurants and food are excellent, with great steaks and fresh fish often cooked beachside on the “barbie” or grill. Try ordering “bush tucker” in a restaurant; a platter of smoked emu, crocodile and kangaroo. Crocodile meat tastes like white fishy chicken and kangaroo is a tender lean red meat. Many restaurants are BYO, and what a great idea that is. Visit the local bottle shop to pick up a bottle of delicious Australian wine, and have the restaurant open and pour it for you. It keeps the food bill down so you can spend more on some great trips exploring the amazing tourist destinations in the cities of Australia.

Australia has lots of places to visit and we list them all. From the top (literally!) there is Darwin, known for its National Parks such as Kakadu, and its aboriginal art. This is the nearest town to the awesome Uluru (Ayer's Rock), an impressive 1142 foot-high sandstone formation, renowned for its vivid red colors at sunrise and sunset; remote, but well worth the visit. Another place with amazing sunsets is Thailand. Many take advantage of the short flights to Thailand and find places to stay in Krabi to enjoy the amazing sunsets there.

Back in Australia over on the East coast is Cairns, gateway to the magnificent Great Barrier Reef, and notably where two wonders of the world converge; the tropical rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef. It is also a great centre for sport fishing, shopping, touring botanical gardens and museums as well as riding on the old railway to Kurunda. Return by skyrail, if you dare, high above the tropical rainforest.

Further south is Brisbane, a modern lively city. Enjoy the parks and cycle ways by the river and visit the convict-built windmill surviving since 1828.


Everyone has heard of Australia's largest city, Sydney, and its tourist attractions, although it is not the capital city of Australia. Its main claims to fame are the iconic Sydney Opera House built on Sydney harbour, the largest natural harbour in the world with over 152 miles of shoreline. Climb the 134-meter high “coat hanger”, Sydney Harbour Bridge, or hang out with the surfers on Bondi Beach.

Australia's Capital City, Canberra , is in the extreme south east; the location of the seat of government including Parliament House, the national High Court, National Gallery and National Museum.

The second largest city after Sydney is Melbourne, Australia 's sporting and cultural capital. Visit the world-renowned beaches and Australian wineries; pan for gold or visit the penguin colony on nearby Phillip Island.

Perth is in Western Australia, out on a limb, but one of Australia 's most beautiful cities. Whale watching is a thrill from June through November; experience Perth 's Tree Top Walk or surf down the sand dunes at Lancelin. You can also hire a dune buggy and have some wild fun.
