Up and Away to the Land Down Under

The wonders and surprises of Australia

Australia is such a uniquely diverse destination, possessing a multitude of attractions – there really is something for everyone in Oz. Whether it’s wonderful wildlife on land, sea and in the air to bustling cultural hubs with just the right balance of simplicity and sophistication, a meaningful adventure in Australia can truly start from urban and natural landscapes alike.

Deciding on a fairly solid itinerary with all the hidden gems, activities, and established hot spots that Australia has to offer can be a very daunting task. The enormity of Australia can’t be overstated: it is the fifth-largest country in the world, nearly the size of the continental U.S. For most intrepid travelers who have limited time for their trip, focusing on one or two regions in Australia and exploring them thoroughly will result in a less stressful and decidedly more enjoyable experience. It also saves a significant amount of time and money on transportation.

Fortunately, Australia has a few options to get travelers started. Travel blogging pioneer Kathy McLeman helpfully suggests the ultra-chic city of Melbourne, with its abundance of restaurants that have delighted hundreds of foodies’ taste buds throughout the years. Indeed, the best way to know a city is through its local cuisine, and with nearby St. Kilda widely regarded as Melbourne’s most well-endowed fine-dining suburbs, gourmands from all over the world will surely be in for a memorable gastronomic treat. Additionally, in a recent DialAFlight blog post, fellow travel blogger Ree Saunders recommends a Melbourne, Sydney, Hunter Valley, and Mornington Peninsula food and wine tour – specifically, a two-week foray into Australia’s finest wineries and restaurants.

And for those who enjoy the beach and marine wildlife, Australia’s extensive coastline offers a host of majestic surprises. From the calming beaches and big wave surfing to the dramatic scenes along the Great Ocean Road and the vastness of the Great Barrier Reef, Australian coastal adventures are definitely breathtaking.
