“This tour, Taste of Tasmania (Original), covered a lot of Tasmania in 6 days, which is where I felt it was rushed. We arrived in Launceston late afternoon, and left early next morning. I would have liked to spend a day exploring the area. Other than that it was amazing, a good walk/hike almost every day, so be aware if your not fit before you start this trip , you will be by the time you reach spectacular Freycinet National Park.
all in all a great tour.”
Unlike many countries that promise a larger-than-life holiday but doesn't deliver, Australia keeps its promises of a unique holiday. Melbourne. Sydney. Brisbane. Perth. Hobart. Canberra. Darwin. Each a superstar in its own right, each presenting something entirely unique to the traveler. From the hippy student-oriented life of Brisbane to the iconic architecture of Melbourne, from the frontier attractions of Darwin to the sandstone beauties of Hobart, each city of Australia feels incredibly exciting.
If you are up for a trip to Australia don't miss its wine valleys. Since most of the country’s population lives along the coast, seafood is very popular here. And of course, with a beer or a glass of wine in hand, you can easily wash down those lamb, chicken and beef dishes frying on the BBQ as well.

A holiday to Australia cannot be cut short if you want to see all the country has to offer. Australia is a very, very big country, so plan for a long holiday (and save your money). Be prepared for long trips as even flying from coast to coast can take several hours.
Head inland if you want to see the country's famous wildlife. That's where you're most likely to find kangaroos, koalas and wombats in the wild.
UV rays are particularly high in Australia as there is a large hole in the ozone right above the country. Pack (and be sure to wear) high SPF sunscreen.
Australia is perfect for swimming or surfing, but always pay attention to warning signs at the beach. Swim between the flags and beware of dangerous sea life.
If you're looking to interact with locals (and meet fellow travellers), stick to the coast. Most Australians live within 50km of the coast, while the centre of the country is quite remote.
