From Sydney's iconic sites to the remote Outback towns, there is somewhere for everyone. Whether it's your first-time to Australia or you're planning a return to rediscover the country in a new light, you'll love our ideas for a holiday of a lifetime.

Families will love meeting the friendly locals at Taronga Zoo and learning to surf together on the Gold Coast, while adventure travellers can camp under the stars in the Outback, dive the Great Barrier Reef and learn the art of throwing a boomerang.

For those who want to take in the most famous sites on a whistle-stop tour, you won't want to miss Uluru, Melbourne and Alice Springs as you witness Australia's magnificent highlights. And wildlife enthusiasts will be in their element in the island state of Tasmania, which is home to Tasmanian devils, quolls, wombats, platypus and the rare white wallabies of Bruny Island. For train buffs, Australia is home to one of the world's greatest rail journeys, the Indian Pacific, which traverses the country from east to west on an unforgettable, scenic ride.

When it comes to romance in Australia, nowhere beats the picture-postcard Whitsundays and the twinkling lights of Sydney on a luxury break that combines five-star hotels with excellent dining, seclusion and heavenly views. Meanwhile, foodies can discover that there's so much more than 'shrimps on the barbie' in Australia, with visits to sun-kissed vineyards, the chance to learn about bush food and taste the sumptuous seafood along the coast.
