Australian Tours State Highlights

Australia is a vast and ancient continent where the sunny climate encourages an outdoor lifestyle and the opportunities for holiday adventure and exploration are limited only by your imagination.

From the turquoise seas and golden beaches of the Gold Coast to the awe inspiring grandeur of Uluru, the star filled vistas of an outback night sky or the shimmering spinifex in a Pilbarra sunset... these are just some of the Australian holiday memories that will last a lifetime.

Stretching from the pristine wilderness of southern Tasmania to the tip of Cape York, from the Pacific Ocean in the east to the Indian Ocean 4500 kms to the west... the holiday opportunities are endless. Whether your preference is for armchair comfort or adrenalin rush adventure, you will find lots of opportunities to satisfy your needs.

The wonderful climate, combined with an excellent road network, make Australia the perfect country for self drive holidays in campers and motorhomes. Visitors can rest assured that Australian accommodation choices are plentiful and available in all price ranges.
