Several seasons allow visitors to see Australia at its finest however a few provide experiences not to be had elsewhere in the world. Sydney is one of the first countries in the world to mark the New Year, so there is no better way to celebrate New Year's Eve than by witnessing the spectacular festivities on Sydney Harbour. Ranked as one of the top 10 New Year's Eve celebrations in the world, Sydney 's fireworks provide an idyllic backdrop for the festivities.
The city lists many vantage points, for superior views of the fireworks; however taking a cocktail cruse around Sydney Harbor provides unprecedented views throughout the evening. Sit in the middle of the action as the Bella Vista cruises down the Exclusion Zone. The Exclusion Zone provides a water highway where other watercraft normally cannot venture between lit buoys giving an all access pass.
Melbourne offers its own New Years Eve celebration on the Yarra River from the Swan Street Bridge to the Waterfront City . It is not necessary to visit Australia during a world wide event to enjoy a holiday. Visit Australia during its winter from June through October and ski on some of the best slopes in the world
For upscale skiing, Ski Thredbo
is a convenient location 6 hours away from Sydney and a couple of hours from Australia 's capital Canberra
. Thredbo is with slopes for all levels of skiers from novice to expert. Perisher Blue, in Australia 's capital Canberra, offers the largest ski area in the Southern Hemisphere and is not to be missed.
