About Australia Tourism
Australia is the smallest continent in the world, and ironically also the largest island that exists. The country has long been a favored travel destination from India. From iconic landmarks to great underwater scenes – Australia tourism makes sure it has something for everyone. If water or sightseeing is not your thing, then there are beautiful hiking trails to explore and mind-blowing natural destinations to see like the pink-colored lakes Spencer and Hillier.
To know more about the place, go through our detailed guide of Australia tourism.
History of Australia:
Aboriginals of Australia are believed to have the oldest culture on earth since they arrived this place by boat 50,000 years ago. Scattered in 500 different clans and speaking around 700 languages, there were about one million aboriginals living across this continent as hunters. And, the most interesting thing to know about these clans is that despite having a spiritual connection with their land, they traveled widely for trade, water, and ritual gatherings as well.
People, Language, and Culture of Australia:
Being quite casual and relaxed by nature, Australians are not a fan of formal greetings. Though they love their laid-back lifestyle, they also love being around with their family and friends. They are also known for being punctual and polite. Though English is the official language, locals here speak around 300 languages. Known as predominantly a Christian country, there is no particular state religion as people are free to follow any religion of their choice.
Famous food in Australia:
On an excursion to Australia, it is recommended to munch on its popular dishes, like Pavlova, Chiko roll, Lamingtons, Sausage sanger, Neenish tart, and some other scrumptious delicacies.
Great Barrier Reef:
It is undeniable that the Great Barrier Reef is the main reason behind the ever-growing Australia tourism. Australia has forever boasted its 2000 km long coral reef on the western coast by the Pacific Ocean, and rightfully so. This is the world’s largest natural coral reef, and it can be explored from the west coast along Queensland and from the various off-shore islands as well. Snorkeling, scuba diving, coral exploration, helmet diving, submarine diving and swimming with the turtles and whale sharks are some of the best activities that can be done at the barrier reef. This are only the things that can be done under the water surface. Over the surface, surfing, waterboarding, paddle-boarding, jet-skiing – the options are endless.
Top beaches in Australia:
Famed for some exotic beaches, Australia tourism allows tourists to laze along the long stretches of white sand and find a rejuvenated you. Come here to enjoy a sojourn at its famous beaches, like
Wildlife in Australia:

Major Festivals in Australia:

Things to do in Australia:
One can do a lot of things during the Australia trip – beaches, underwater life, hiking trails, shopping, temple visits and so on. But the one thing that most people overlook is the magnificent, surreally beautiful southern lights. Although not as popular as its northern sister Borealis, the Aurora Australis is quite as pretty to soak your eyes in. The best vantage point is from Mount Wellington in Tasmania. Take in the gorgeous green lights hanging down from the sky like natural festive streamers. Once you have experienced this once-in-a-lifetime view, no other thing could look quite as impressive.

Melbourne: Melbourne is the leading coastal city of Australia, located in the state of Victoria. Situated on the Yarra River, Melbourne is known for its Federation Square and a great scene for indigenous art.
Brisbane: At the other end of the Pacific Highway that shoots off from Sydney is Brisbane. The capital of Queensland is home to numerous galleries, museums, botanical gardens, cultural institutions, and Mount Coot-Tha.
Adelaide: The capital of South Australia has a lovely zoo and renowned institutions like the Art Gallery of South Australia and the South Australia Museum.

A very important part of Australia's visit is roaming around the city in the urban centers. Local transport is top-notch, and so are the local shopping and dining destinations. While on Australia trip, try out the original Carlton draught beer and one of the beach parties at Bondi Beach. Do not miss a chance to see some real, wild Kangaroos at the Kangaroo Island either.

Samridhi's 13 days trip to AustraliaWe had a good trip to Australia. Mostly everything was very organised and at ease of convenience. We personally feel our hotels at Sydney and Melbourne could have been better but the ones at Cairns and Gold Coast were amazing. We didn't like our decision of self-drive car considering how it is a hassle specially when you don't know your way in the city. Australia is an amazing country to visit especially if you are looking for a peaceful vacation.
Rajinder's 10 days trip to AustraliaVery co operative staff. All the activities were on time.
Padmapriya's 7 days trip to AustraliaWe had an awesome trip and everything was taken care of. Only issue we faced was we were asked to download pick your trail app and use it. In the app our pick up time mentioned was 5.30 am whereas the driver said it was 5 am and charged us 35 dollars extra. We still have not received the resolution from pick your trail. Otherwise everything went well as per the itenary.
