Nature and Adventure
Australia is a country whose climate lends itself to being outside in nature. A warm climate and a primarily coastal population mean that beach and water-based activities are very easy to access from all of Australia’s major cities. Swimming, surfing, scuba diving, kayaking, sailing or just unwinding in an amazing waterside restaurant or bar are all par for the course Down Under. Australia also has thousands of miles of hiking trails, city walking tours, bike trails and adventure sports experiences that will raise the pulse. The Great Barrier Reef, the 12 Apostles, the Great Ocean Road, Uluru, Kakadu National Park, Bondi Beach and more are waiting for you.
Australia is called “The Lucky Country” and we think this title has a lot to do with our amazing food and wine scene. Australia’s cultural diversity and access to the best farm-fresh produce, has gifted chefs in Australia with an infinite pallet. They choose the best and freshest ingredients, then blend these by drawing from cuisines around the world, to create truly delicious and amazing taste experiences. Australia boasts more than 60 wine regions which have are recognised internationally for the consistent quality of their wines produced. Whether you are a wine connoisseur or not, Australia’s winemakers love to share the stories of their vineyards. The terroir of the wine, and the stories of the region, puts the passion in the bottle.
History and Spirituality
The first Australians are one of the worlds oldest and most diverse continuous cultures. Recent archaeological discoveries have placed humans in Australia for last 50,000 years. That’s a culture that is 10 times older than Stonehenge, and 25 times older than the Colosseum in Rome. 50,000 years of living untouched by outside influence has created a culture with very deep connection to the land, a vibrant spoken word history and a unique mythology. The culture and spirituality of the Australian Aboriginals can be experienced on a large scale, with a visit to Uluru, Australia’s red centre or through smaller local guided walking tours or cultural centres. Australia currently has UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Many of these hold spiritual significance to Australia’s Aboriginals.
One of the great things about travel, is experiencing the culture of a new destination. To meet the locals and find out how the live and what makes them tick, is one of travels greatest gifts. These concepts are very easy to indulge in Australia. When you do you find that Australia is not just one distinct culture, but multiple cultures blended with one another. If we were to look at some broad-brush cultural stereotypes, Australians love sport, have no time for bad coffee, are happy and gregarious, are always willing to lend a helping hand and view life as something to be lived. Australia is a country of stories; everyone has one and they all mix together to form the great cultural melting pot that is at once familiar and new, but always warm and open.
