Melbourne is a dynamic, cosmopolitan city and is considered to be the cultural capital of Australia. With cool architecture, vibrant street art and robust music, this Australian city is one that must be experienced. Explore some of the city’s top landmarks like St Paul’s Cathedral, the Melbourne Museum, Eureka Skydeck 88 and the National Gallery of Victoria. A drive along the Great Ocean Road is another must-do while in Victoria. This breath-taking 150-mile drive along the coastline culminates with the Twelve Apostles - tall pillars of rock stranded out at sea.
Sydney is Australia’s oldest and largest city and is famous for its golden beaches and iconic landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. This sun drenched city is an ideal place to enjoy outdoor activities like surfing, kayaking or the beautiful Bondi to Coogee coastal walk. Other attractions are plentiful from shopping, experiencing the café culture, or even day trips to surrounding regions such as Taronga Zoo, the Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves, or Bondi and Manly Beaches to name just a few.
Perth is a cosmopolitan city that oozes style and sophistication with its hip wine bars, beautiful sandy beaches, spectacular green parks and glittering skyscrapers. Top attractions within the city include the lush gardens of Kings Park, the Perth Mint, the Western Australia Museum, Art Gallery and Perth Zoo. If you’re looking to go on a day trip then Rottnest Island, the Pinnacles Desert and the lush Swan Valley should be on your list.
As Australia’s third largest city, Brisbane has become increasingly popular over the past few years. You can expect breath-taking scenery, sandy beaches with crystal blue waters, historic buildings and lush parks on a Brisbane holiday. Be sure to visit the Lone Koala Sanctuary, Kangaroo Point, or one of the world-class museums and galleries while you’re there.
