Holidays To Australia

When it comes to kilometres of beaches, natural wonders, friendly locals and cute koalas, it's all good in Australia, mate.

Explore sunny beaches, sample fine regional wines and shop until you drop in some of the nation’s largest cities. Whether you're new to the country or a seasoned Aussie, Australia holidays hold adventure for everyone.

Things to do in Australia

First things first: Australia is big, so if you don't have a chunk of time to explore it properly, just pick one area. Booking one of Wotif’s Australia car hire deals is ideal if you fancy a road trip, or you can fly between most of the major cities in a couple of hours.

A classic Australia holiday begins with the beach; the pristine stretches of coastline in Queensland will fit the bill quite nicely. The Sunshine Coast, less than a two-hour drive from Brisbane, is home to about 100 kilometres of cream-coloured sand and blue waves. Farther north are the Whitsunday Islands, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and excellent scuba diving.

If you're looking for more of a fast-paced vibe, head south to cosmopolitan Melbourne and soak up the country's most sophisticated and culturally diverse city. On the west coast, start in Perth and drive to the wineries, caves and beaches until you reach the scenic Margaret River region.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Unless you're on a dusty road in the Outback, you won't have a shortage of shopping options across the country. Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast are home to high-end couture stores, as well as smaller boutiques and independent art galleries. Large shopping centres are in virtually every city, and you'll also find a series of charming, unique stores in smaller touristy towns. Want to make sure you've got enough spending money? Our Australia holiday packages maximise savings by bundling flights and accommodation, so you've got plenty of cash left for some retail therapy.

You'll need to stop and refuel after all that shopping. Explore the burgeoning gastropub scene in Brisbane, or get lost in the trendy coffee shops in Melbourne's famous laneways. Even international chefs like Jamie Oliver have opened restaurants in Australia, proof that Aussies are a discerning bunch when it comes to grub. If you want something really simple, fish and chips on the beach is hard to beat—made even better because the seafood is likely to have been caught fresh locally!

Nightlife in Australia varies depending on where you are. In the major cities, anything goes: large dance clubs, boutique brew pubs, or seasonal pop-up events and markets. Even smaller cities and towns quite rightfully boast their own thriving (albeit smaller) nightlife scene.

What's Next?

Wotif will get your trip off to a good start—we’ve got heaps of Australia packages to choose from. Hotels, resorts and flights are available to suit all budgets, so you can find a holiday that suits you. Check out our Australia deals and get ready to kick off your next adventure. And hey, if you’ve got more annual leave to spare, look into our Fiji holiday packages. The beach bum life is calling you!
