Holiday in AustraliaThe island continent of Australia is truly a spectacular place to visit, vast in size and blessed with so many natural wonders and man made attractions, one could take a lifetime and still not experience everything that there was to do and see first hand.
Australia has great weather, 19 world heritage listings, it has some of the lonely planets top wilderness destinations, marine and wildlife reserves bigger than some countries, vibrant modern active cities with world class events, some of the worlds best surfing and wind surfing, as well as many of the worlds best and most pristine secluded and popular beaches.
Being such an isolated land mass for such a long time, Australian flora and fauna is the most unique. But this is just the tip of the better known generally accepted iceberg.
There are many world renowned wine regions in Australia such as the Barrossa Valley, The Hunter Valley and Margaret River wine region where international travelers and locals alike love to holiday lunch and beach the days away.
With its many theme parks, great beaches and abundant accommodation the Gold Coast is a very popular family holiday and party destination for the active.
If you are into saying been there done that and taking a selfy then you will maybe want to visit some where like Uluru (Ayers Rock), Alice Springs, the Great Barrier Reef, the Sydney Opera House, the Australian Outback or the like, else maybe you would prefer to feed the dolphins, or get up close with a baby Kangaroo or Koala.
Australia is a place steeped in history both modern and ancient, from Australia's more recent colonial history and Aboriginal heritage to the worlds most ancient rocks and living fossils the stromatolites, a life form that have remained unchanged for billions of years.
The more adventurous traveler can be rewarded for doing things a little bit different, such as visiting WA's Ningaloo Reef where you can snorkel right from the beach directly over the reef amongst the protected marine life or take a trip in a glass bottom boat. Maybe you would prefer to visit Western Australia's Pilbara region and see some spectacular gorges on your way to the worlds largest rock MT Augustus which is actually the worlds largest monolith (even bigger than the better know Uluru - Ayers Rock). The Kimberly region of WA is rated by lonely planet as the worlds #2 must see wilderness destination, massive in size and best appreciated from the air an aerial tour over the Kimberly has to be seen to be believed.
Australia is a place like no other and is likely very different from what you may be used to, so holidaying in Australia one needs to be sure to always take some simple precautions, making sure that one is wearing at least 30+ sun cream on all exposed skin a hat and sunglasses for sun protection is generally recommended, making sure that you have plenty of drinking water for consumption plus emergency supplies. Taking care to swim between the flags and reading the signs at populated beaches can save you a lot of heart ache and help to keep you safe as well as make your outdoor activities a lot more pleasant.
Distance in Australia can be truly vast so keep an eye on and plan your trip and fuel stops if traveling in the outback in a self driven vehicle, more remote outback areas can be traveled without seeing a petrol station for hundreds of km's, it is also the generally accepted rule should you break down on a remote road to stay with your vehicle and to let the police know your intended rout and arrival time before you depart on your journey, if you intend to go off the beaten track. Telephone reception in populated areas is generally quite good, but more remote communication may require specialist equipment like a satellite phone.
