If there was ever a once-in-a-lifetime destination, Australia is it. Vast desert plains, an incredibly rich Aboriginal heritage, world-famous beaches, wildlife on another level and modern, iconic cities that sparkle in the sunlight – Australian summer holidays certainly have the wow factor. A Southern Hemisphere summer begins in December and ends in February and this is an intoxicating time to visit.
Get in touch with your inner explorer and stride into the red, sun-scorched earth of the Australian outback and you’ll feel like you’ve stumbled into the back of beyond. Visit the sacred site of Ayers Rock (or Uluru), an immense natural wonder that needs to be seen to be believed, and learn about its deep and fascinating significance to the indigenous tribes who surround it, the traditional owners and guardians of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in which it resides. Animal life is bountiful here, from koalas, kookaburras and kangaroos to crocodiles, jellyfish and wallabies - vibrant coral reefs and lush forests house all manner of wildlife ready to jump in front of your camera lens. Trade natural delights for urban ones in Sydney and witness first-hand the city’s iconic glory and drama; a view of the legendary harbour, Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge is obligatory, and it won’t let you down in its beauty. See the immense beaches of the Great Barrier Reef and travel north to the country’s largest national park, Kakadu, to search out waterfalls, climb mountains and swim in a natural infinity pool. For nature on another level, this is the place.
