AUSTRALIAAustralia is located in Oceania and was a colony of the United Kingdom until 1901. Australia is the largest island in the world and one of the world’s largest countries. Australia is widely known for its impressive mountain ranges, trackless deserts, falls, rainforests and beautiful beaches. The country features an impressive variety of wildlife, including Tasmanian devils, koalas, kangaroos, crocodiles, snakes, and 20 different species of shark. The tourism industry in Australia has experienced a boom these past few years. Most of the country’s sights are located in the country’s east, in the States of Queensland and New South Wales. Australia’s premier tourist attraction is the Great Barrier Reef on its north-eastern coast. The island of Tasmania features a landscape that is completely different from that of the main island to its north. Cradle Mountain in Lake St. Claire National Park is Tasmania’s largest nature reserve and is very popular with trout fishers. The local Australians prefer vacationing at the Gold Coast, 80 km south of the city of Brisbane. By far the most well-known city in Australia is Sydney, visited mainly because of its many kilometres of great beaches and the famous animal reserve of Kuringgai Chase National Park, close by. Sydney’s Opera House is the most photographed building in the city. This stunning landmark serves as a symbol of the city, and the country as a whole. The Harbour Bridge connects Sydney’s Central Business District with the North Shore. In addition to offering hotels in Sydney, we also arrange tours to other parts of this enormous country.
