Why Visit Australia?
Australia, the world’s smallest continent and largest island, is a land of unparalleled natural beauty. It’s the only single-country continent in the world. Nicknamed Oz, Australia is known for the parched red deserts of the Outback, diverse wildlife and flora, bustling cities, and stunning beaches.
The kangaroo, koala bear, and platypus act as Australia’s unofficial mascots. Whether you’re exploring the dense rainforests in the north and east, relaxing on the pristine coast, or getting out and about in the iconic cities of Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane, the allure of Australia is evident.
From the land’s indigenous people, the Aborigines, living off the lush land to the British first colonizing the island with fleets of convicts in the late 1700s, the history of this continent is storied and long-spanning. Today, you’ll see both native and modern cultures celebrated in this diverse and fascinating land.
