Queensland

Queensland has earned the name with Brisbane’s Sunshine Coast, Surfer’s Paradise and Gold Coast, where the sunrises are exquisite, such as on the world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island.  Further east is the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays, with the islands of Hamilton and Hayman.  The reef stretches about 1500 miles north, up to Lizard Island which is one of two with beach access to the barrier reef.  Inland is Tropical North Queensland with the resort towns of Cairns, Palm Cove and Port Douglas.  There are many attractions and sightseeing...

Northern Territory

The Northern Territory is practically all Outback.  Darwin is the setting of the Baz Luhrman’s movie Australia, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman.  Kakadu National Park is often compared to an African Safari experience.  My favorite was swimming in water over 7,000 years old under a waterfall in the bush.  The Red Center has Alice Springs, famous for the Royal Flying Doctor, and Ayers Rock, which is the world’s largest monolith and sacred Aborigine sight known as Uluru by the natives.  With no major city for miles and miles, this sky is best for star gazing.  The Milky...

Western Australia

Western Australia is home to the majority of Australia’s population, yet the least visited due to the great travel distance from the Americas, but it is well worth the extended journey to see!  Perth shares the benefits of the other Vibrant Cities of Australia with a great nightlife, city attractions and local wineries.  Special to Perth is a chance to mould, yourself, a bar of Gold!  A day tour to Freemantle across the bay is popular.  Traveling north is Ningaloo Reef, Australia’s other Barrier Reef and just as unique and magnificent!  Shark Bay and Monkey Mia are my...

Tasmania

Tasmania is about 3/4th designated as protected National Park.  This is the best place for hiking, camping and outdoors nature activities.  Plus the easiest state for self drive itineraries allowing you to explore at your own pace.  Hobart is home to one of the country’s top art galleries, the  Mona.  While in the north Port Arthur is the original penal colony with fascinating historical tours.  Tasmania boasts having the world’s cleanest air, tested daily and continually.  Winter time brings snow to this southern island’s mountains, while the coastline towns remains...

South Australia

South Australia is a hidden gem with all of the country’s experiences in one state.  The outback is Wilipenia Pound.  Kangaroo Island has the most animals, living in the wild, per square mile than anywhere else in Australia.  Snorkel with Leafy Sea Dragons (found nowhere else in the world), swim with dolphins, or cage dive with great white sharks in the Southern Ocean.  The state capital of Adelaide is the City of Churches and a university town built around parklands having pedesterian only streets and sidewalk cafes.  Foodies and Wine Lovers are the primary tourists due to the...

Victoria

Victoria is the smallest state with the most diversity all within a one hour drive from Melbourne.  East to South for Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary and the Yarra Valley Wine Region.  Spend your sunset with Penguins on Phillip Island.  South and West for Australia’s best natural spas in Mornington Peninsula and Daylesford includes fine art.  While the Great Ocean Road is Australia’s most scenic drive.  Go North by rainforests to the Grampians for the outback with wild kangaroo at your mountain cabin’s doorstep.  As you go South, returning to Melbourne, visit...

New South Wales

New South Wales is the most visited state due to Sydney and its harbour constantly ranking at the top of World’s Best lists.  A harbour cruise is a must with a choice of sightseeing commentary with a meal, a wild wet ride on a jet boat, a leisurely afternoon yacht cruise, or simply take the ferry for about $15.  There are many city attractions for the physically active to the slow paced.  The Rocks is where the European Convicts were first releasted and started carving out what has today become the Australia we know.  My favorite thing to do here is The Rocks Historical Walking...
