Australia, more than any other country, evokes the far corners of the world, a place that thrills the imagination with its many facets.
Start with the Outback, the country's heartland, where the red earth stands out against the intense blue sky and the arid landscapes are dotted with magnificent curiosities such as Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta (Olga Mountains) which are very popular with tourists, but must-sees nonetheless.
Then there are the Aborigines, who have always lived on this land. Their art is highly visible and their culture increasingly well protected. You can learn a great deal about them in the country's museums, especially at the National Gallery of Victoria Australia, or on site in Arnhem Land.
Australia also boasts a spectacular shoreline. The Great Barrier Reef, on the UNESCO World Heritage List, stretches along the Pacific coast, providing unrivaled swimming and diving. Bells Beach, on Great Ocean Road, is a favourite spot for surfing. And the renowned city of Sydney has passionately developed its twin lifestyles as a seaside and urban hub where you will enjoy exploring the Opera House and Sydney Harbour.
And let's not forget Australia's rugged natural beauty. Its abundant national parks are scattered throughout the continent, as well as in Tasmania, an island not to be missed. The arts won't be lacking either on this unique journey, from creative performances to flavourful cuisine and famous wines.
