Australia Holidays

The secret of a great holiday to Australia is good planning, such as flying into one city and out of another, travelling by motorhome or escorted tour to enjoy the journey as much as the destination, or adding a stopover in Dubai or South East Asia to make the most of your flight to the other side of the world.

At FREEDOM, we can help you do all of this and more.

Australia’s Icons

Whether it’s your first visit or you’re returning to continue your adventure, Australia’s iconic natural wonders and world famous icons never lose their allure. Sydney truly is a beautiful city, with a different stunning view of the harbour, opera house and bridge around almost every corner.

Covering an area larger than the United Kingdom, the Great Barrier Reef extends 2,300 kilometres along Australia’s north east coast. Most people visit the reef from Cairns, on a day cruise. If you would like to wake up to tropical waters gently lapping outside your window however, you can stay on the Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island or Green Island, amongst others.

Uluru, or Ayers Rock, sits in the heart of the Australian Outback. For the energetic, it’s a 10.6 km, flat walk around the base of the 600 million year old monolith. For those just happy with an unforgettable view, visiting at sunrise or sunset is particularly recommended. A 45 minute drive from Uluru you’ll reach Kata Tjuṯa, or the Olgas, another out of this world giant rock formation.

Towns & Cities

Like Sydney, Australia’s other main cities, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, offer their own mix of modern architecture, historic colonial buildings and tree shaded open spaces. Al fresco dining is popular, taking advantage of the warm climate, and high quality restaurants can be found in every city, with local seafood and Australian wine often on the menu.

Cities are clean and easy to get around, by foot, public transport or hire car. In Melbourne, the traditional City Circle Tram line stops at many of the main tourist attractions. In Sydney, a ride on the ferries that criss-cross the harbour is a must.

Australia’s smaller country towns and laid back beach resorts offer a friendly welcome to travellers. In Queensland, coffee culture has been truly embraced, though there can’t be many better ways to start the day than sitting in the morning sun, listening to the waves meet the shore, with a flat white in hand.

Natural Wonder

The sheer diversity of natural environments across Australia is amazing.

As well as Uluru and the awe-inspiring Red Centre, the Northern Territory boasts some of the country’s most impressive nature reserves. These include Kakadu National Park, a landscape of rocky escarpments and waterfalls that is home to saltwater crocodiles and flatback turtles, and Litchfield National Park with its ancient gorges and iconic termite mounds.

In North Queensland the Daintree Rainforest covers 1,200 square kilometres, in parts growing right down to the edge where the land meets the sea and the Great Barrier Reef. In South Queensland is Fraser Island, which at 1,840 square kilometres is thought to be the largest sand island in the world.

Around 50 km north west of Sydney in the State of New South Wales, is the Blue Mountains National Park. There is a range of walking trails throughout the park, making it a popular day out for Sydneysiders. If you visit, ensure to stop at Echo Point for a view of the imposing Three Sisters rock formation, that stands above the forested valley and is illuminated in the evening.

Wine & Wildlife

The South East has a particularly good climate for wine grapes, and you’ll find picturesque vineyards throughout. Wines regions to note include the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, Yarra Valley in Victoria and Barossa Vally in South Australia.

Accessible from Adelaide, Kangaroo Island sits off Australia’s South Coast. You’re bound to meet its namesake, but could also spot koalas, sea lions and penguins. Continuing past Adelaide and the further round ‘The Bight’ are some of the country’s most unusual features, bright pink salt lakes.

Into Western Australia, which is larger than Western Europe, time in Margaret River is well spent. Three hours south of Perth, the region boasts a little bit of everything; pristine beaches, nature reserves, wineries and welcoming towns with characterful pubs and restaurants and boutique shopping.

Off the coast from Perth is Rottnest Island, home of the selfie-loving quokka, and less than three hours north of the state capital is another quiet unique Aussie landscape, thousands of limestone pillars, known as the Pinnacles, emerging from a sandy desert.

Circumventing Australia, you’ll find incredible beaches everywhere. There are over 10,000 in fact, meaning you’re guaranteed a little space to your self, where you can lay back and soak in the wonder of this amazing country.

Getting Around

There are frequent internal flights between Sydney and Melbourne and all the main cities, as well as regular flights to other towns and regions. Don’t think flying is the only option however, a road trip or rail journey can really add to your adventure.

One way car and motorhome hire is available, letting you explore further. Include a drive along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria to see the Twelve Apostles or journey from Sydney to Brisbane on the Pacific Highway.

At FREEDOM, our range of self drive itineraries include car hire, hotels, route map and guidance, meaning you can turn up and hit the road! And if you would like to take a detour or plan your own route, our Travel Consultants can help advise on driving times and accommodation options.

If you like to travel in the company of others, consider an escorted tour or rail journey. Tours are led by experienced guides and include luxury coach travel and quality hotels and dining.

Australia has two of the greatest rail journeys in the world, The Ghan and Indian Pacific. The service onboard is second to none and the landscapes that unfold outside your window simply breathtaking.

As tailor made specialists, with FREEDOM you can mix and match. Travel from Perth to Sydney by train for example, before hiring a car to explore the local area or flying to Cairns for a tropical escape.

Stopovers To Australia

The flight to Australia offers a great opportunity to experience another country without the cost of another plane ticket.

Singapore offers an amazing combination of Asian and Western cultural influences. In Bangkok you’ll find golden temples and palaces, bustling markets and mouth-watering cuisine. Dubai appears to emerge from the desert, glistening skyscrapers surrounded by enchanting dunes. Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Los Angeles are other popular stopover destinations.

If you are restricted by time, there is also a direct flight from London to Perth however (with a London to Sydney flight potentially being added in the future).
