Flights to Australia

A continent on its own, Australia is home to a wide range of attractions and amazingly hospitable people. The country is very tourist-friendly, but if you’re looking for a place to start, consider Melbourne! Visit the Federation Square, the city’s most iconic meeting place, and stroll around the museums, markets and festivals that are present throughout the year. Certain museums, such as the Kirra Gallery, feature artefacts that are uniquely Australian. All museums offer guided and non-guided tours to ensure you have the most fulfilling experience. After that, visit the Queen Victoria’s Market, which serves not just as a market for a wide range of goods, but also as an important historic site as well.

Those who love reaching great heights can visit the Eureka Skydeck, the Southern Hemisphere’s highest observation deck. Its one of a kind feature, The Edge, is a glass cube that protrudes three metres out of the building, suspending you in the air 300 metres above ground. If you prefer something a little more romantic, consider the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, a 120-metre tall Ferris wheel that provides a rewarding view of the city.

Savour the numerous photo opportunities as you drive down the Great Ocean Road, which is lined with pristine beaches and beautiful works of nature. There, be awed by the two largest limestone towers in the world, sculpted by years of erosion. Those who wish to enjoy more natural goodness can head to the Melbourne Zoo, the Melbourne Sealife Aquarium and the Phillip Island Penguin Parade for some heart-warming interaction with Australia’s wildlife.

You would enjoy Sydney as well, a city with a culture of celebration and relaxation. Climb the Harbour Bridge and visit the Sydney Opera House. On the way, you will come across other attractions such as Hyde Park, Bondi Beach and St James Cathedral. Cruises are a very popular way to see the city as well. Besides these sights, there are plenty of musical, restaurants and shopping malls to keep you occupied.

Thrill seekers can go up the Sydney Tower Eye and enjoy an adrenaline pumping experience at the Skywalk, or you could opt for a hot air balloon ride. Some hot air balloon packages take you to fringes and bring you up close to the grand Blue Mountains. Coach services to the area are available as well.

Home of the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns is also a popular tourist destination. The largest coral collection in the world can be accessed via tours which operate daily, and whether you go underwater or sail above the deep blue sea, it’ll be an experience like no other.

If you’re not a fan of the ocean, take the Kuranda Scenic Railway, which brings you through rainforests, waterfalls and tunnels. The Skyrail Rainforest Cableway is also an ideal option for those seeking to explore rainforest boardwalks. Extreme sports enthusiasts can thrill yourself with bungee jumping or skydiving.
