Australia is a big place and the biggest mistake you can make while you’re here is missing out on the best of it. Loads of brilliant cities and towns in Australia have the Bermuda Triangle effect; before you know what’s hit you, 4 months of your life will have flown by. Minimise the surprises and make sure you also check out this useful information: Before You Go

So you don’t blow all your money and time in one go, here’s our quick overview of what’s in store:

New South Wales - NSW

Home to the biggest City (Sydney), where you’ll work hard, play hard, hit the beach, hit the slopes, hit the bush and get your first taste of Australia! But every backpacker or visitor to Australia also needs to visit the chilled out famous surfing town of Byron Bay.

Queensland - QLD

True heaven on earth – Think sun, surf, white sandy beaches and clear aqua water, red-raw sunburnt Brits in Cairns, tropical rainforests and islands, The World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest and Mad adventures, if you’re up for it.

Northern Territory - NT

Australia’s holy land - The wild centre, the heart, Uluru, unbelievably beautiful wetlands, waterfalls, Aboriginal history and culture and crocodiles and the beautiful capital city of Darwin.

Victoria - VIC

Class it up – Finally some culture and style in this place, cool bars, cool people, cool sporting events, the unforgettable Great Ocean Road and well, it’s just all cool. Make sure you visit the cosmopolitan city of Melbourne.

South Australia - SA

Wine – Stunning beaches, forests, desert dunes and Kangaroo Island with amazing native wildlife. But most importantly; some of the most famous wine regions in the world are in Adelaide and SA!

Western Australia - WA

Huge – literally. Pristine beaches, the best wine in the world, especially in Margaret River, unexpected adventures and lots and lots of driving with wide open spaces. Make sure you visit the worlds  most isolated capital city - Perth.

Tasmania

Green – Every Greenies dream come true, unspoilt beaches and forests, organic farming, sheep, hiking, tree-hugging hippies who love their sheep and the beautiful Hobart.

Australian Capital Territory - ACT

Blink and you’ll miss it – the Capital City, close to the ski fields in winter, historic monuments and museums, er, not for the thrill-seeker.
