Australia is also known as Oz; a magical, enchanting land of warm sunshine, cuddly koala bears and loping kangaroos with their cute joeys hanging out of their pouches. Of gleaming waters, gushing waterfalls and emerald rain forests. Did you know the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef, is the only thing visible from outer space?

What to do

From Sydney’s notable landmark, the Opera House, justly praised for its architecture, to Queensland’s stunning Gold Coast, to Alice Springs’ red deserts and salt lakes, to shopping in Melbourne. Bushwalking, hiking in canyons, touring a national park, exploring aboriginal rock art….Australia is not just a country, but a continent! It would be wiser to narrow your horizons to two or three places and see them fully, rather than attempt to do a marathon sprint from point A to point B.

What to eat

Good question, especially as Sydney has a plethora of restaurants serving every cuisine under the sun, Indian, Chinese, Greek, Korean, Lebanese and Thai being among the most popular. The British hangover is the Sunday pot roast. This sure ain’t no place to count your calories.

The sporty life

It is a moot point which comes first with the Aussies – cricket or water sports! Swimming, sailing and surfing are exceedingly popular; the Gold Coast, in particular, is a surfers’ paradise.  It would certainly be gaming with a twist were you to play online pokies from your phone and maybe win real money sunning yourself on a golden beach by the deep blue sea.

Festivals and holidays

The quirkier, the better – or so Australia believes. Along the lines of Munich’s Oktoberfest, Canberra has its very own beer and cider fest too, this one in March. There’s a ukulele festival (Katoomba) the Festival of Dangerous Ideas (Sydney) Festival of the Winds (Bondi Beach) Sunburnt Christmas (Bondi Beach) Roaring 20’s and all that Jazz (Blue Mountains) Sea n Beats (Brisbane) The Dreaming (Woodford) Dirt n Dust (Julia Creek) Come Out festival (Adelaide) to name but a few.
