Our closest neighbour and we often put off visiting.  You know all about the beaches and the cities but there is so much more to Australia.

Discover the four states that are filled with diverse and iconic Australian experiences that are renowned the world over: South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. Whether you’ve got two weeks to see the sights or six months to cover these vast states in a campervan, here you’ll find everything you need to know about the places to go and things to do on your unique holiday.

Step into South Australia with Adelaide festivals or a visit to the Adelaide Hills. Meet native wildlife on Kangaroo Island and swim with sea lions on the Eyre Peninsula. Explore wineries in the Barossa, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale on the Fleurieu Peninsula. South Australia’s Outback is home to the Flinders Ranges, Simpson Desert and often parched Lake Eyre.

Explore Western Australia from beach-blessed Perth. Visit Rottnest Island and Freemantle heading south for Margaret River wineries, Kalgoorlie’s goldfi elds and pink lake and Albany’s dramatic coastline. Head north for the rugged Pinnacles and Karijini National Park, and Ningaloo and Monkey Mia’s marine treasures. North in the Kimberley, an epic 4WD links Broome’s Cable Beach with Kununurra and El Questro Station.

Experience Tasmania’s World Heritage wilderness, great food and wine, compact cities and clean air. Hobart is gateway to historic Port Arthur, the wildlife of Bruny Island and Maria Island, and breathtaking Wineglass Bay in Freycinet. From Launceston or Devonport, discover Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Liffey Falls and Flinders Island in Bass Strait. Discover Tasmania’s wild west coast via Strahan.

Lose yourself in the Northern Territory’s ancient Aboriginal culture and rugged landscapes. Tropical Darwin is your gateway to World Heritage Listed Kakadu National Park, lush Litchfi eld National Park, Katherine Gorge and the communities of Tiwi Islands and Arnhem Land. From Alice Springs, discover the Red Centre attractions of Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon, Devils Marbles, the Larapinta Trail and historic Tennant Creek.
