Australia is an enormous country in the South Pacific – a vast land fronting the Indian and South Pacific oceans, featuring golden beaches, rugged deserts, and nature reserves. Head to Australia's vibrant, cosmopolitan cities like Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, and Melbourne on the east coast to get a taste of modern Australia.

Tasmania is just off Australia’s south coast, where you’ll be greeted with expansive national parks, pristine lakes, quaint towns, lush vineyards, and miles of beaches. Australia is a haven for outdoor recreation, from snorkeling the corals of the Great Barrier Reef to hitting the snowy slopes on the Australian Alps.
