Food & Drink

You can start your day with a big Aussie breakfast of eggs any style, bacon, beans, spinach, mushroom and hash browns. Or try the great Aussie favourite, Vegemite on toast.

As Australia is an island surrounded by coastline, it is one of the best places to have seafood. Fish & Chips are always fresh, and you can find them anywhere. Weekends are not the same without a traditional Aussie BBQ, where you can have beef, lamb or chicken.

With plenty of wineries all around the country, you can try some of the world's best from the Barossa Valley in South Australia, the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, to the Tamar Valley in Tasmania.

Italian cafes are widely available day and night, and all Aussie baristas know how to make the perfect coffee, however you like.

It's a Wide Open Road

The best way to really appreciate Australia is to hit the open road. Van and car hire in Australia is relatively affordable, road conditions are usually good, and outside of the big cities you won't find any traffic. If you're driving a camper van, you'll find well-appointed caravan parks in just about every town. If you're feeling more adventurous, hire a 4WD and go off-road! Good traffic conditions, a wealth of campsites, and an endless series of beautiful landscapes make Australia a great place to hit the road and get away from it all.

Life Style & Culture

Australia is known for being one of the most multicultural countries in the world. Its heritage has more than 200 different backgrounds from diverse countries formed with people that migrated and established here.

In Australia you will have the chance to experience a beach lifestyle as all major cities are on the coast so. The Beach is an important part of the Australian lifestyle so you will see surfers, families and groups of friends enjoying it!

Wildlife and Nature

Australia is a land of contrasts, with tropical rain forests, deserts and mountains, miles of coastline, and diverse marine life. For the nature lover, Australia has it all.
