Despite Australia's huge appeal to overseas travellers, the majority of Australians wait until late in life to explore their own country. For an incredible holiday, you don't need to look far – Australia boasts some of the world's top beaches, a spread of top-rated vineyards and some incredible cities.
Explore the cities of Australia
The most visited cities in Australia are Melbourne and Sydney, two cities that share a fierce but friendly rivalry. Highlights include the beaches at St Kilda and Bondi, the MCG and the Sydney Opera House, and the bohemian culture in Fitzroy and Newtown.
There's plenty else to see in the rest of the country too, and flights to Adelaide, Broome and Hobart help to show vastly different areas of Australia.
Australia's best beaches
With so much of Australia's population being found on the coast, there are strong and varied opinions about which is Australia's best beach.
Victoria's Bells Beach, WA's Cottesloe Beach and Tasmania's Wineglass Bay are all contenders for the crown, but most people would agree that the best area for beaches is the east coast, extending thousands of kilometres from Jervis Bay up to Cairns.
Aside from the actual beaches, Cairns is a popular stopping off point for diving at the Great Barrier Reef, while Exmouth on the west coast is a great place to explore the Ningaloo Reef from.
