The only country in the world that is an island and a whole continent itself. The country is aptly named - the name comes from the Latin word australis, which means southern. World famous for its natural wonders and wide open spaces, its beaches, deserts, "the bush", and "the Outback", Australia is actually one of the world's most highly urbanised countries. It is also well known for the cosmopolitan attractions of its large cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth. If it is cities that you are attempting to get away from head down to Cairns or Tasmania. In Tasmania take a journey though Port Arthur and have a look at the preserved ruins of jails or be one with the wilderness and go through the various national parks and marine reserves. If that is not convincing enough abseil at Jenolan Caves, Blue Mountains; Fly a Jet Fighter in Tasmania or helicopter in Perth. Blend your own wine in Barossa Valley or see the wild side of Canberra. Fall in love along the romantic Great Ocean Road or see the Great Barrier Reef in Cairns. Australia has many unexpected experiences to surprise you! Sights and sounds aplenty Australia is the perfect blend of nature and urban, go ahead and indulge yourself.
