Australia

Beyond the Outback

From kangaroos and koalas to platypuses and Tasmanian devils, Australia’s wildlife is iconic. Millions of years of isolation have led to an incredible level of fascinating endemism and a country like nowhere else.

Landscapes are wildly varied too. The Outback encompasses Australia’s vast interior, a dry, hot and sparsely populated place of epic desert landscapes, billabongs, red sands and river creeks. It’s also a sacred place for the Aboriginal people who have lived here for millennia, and who can show you their ancestral home and its hidden highlights.

Around Australia’s coast, find tropical forests teeming with life, blue mountains, stunning beaches and cosmopolitan modern cities. Off Queensland, the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral system and one of its greatest wonders. To the south, Kangaroo Island earns its name, while rugged Tasmania is an adventure all by itself. Add in a world-class wine and culinary scene, and Australia becomes a wonderfully compelling destination.
