Australia is off the charts when it comes to natural beauty, an epic land of tropical beaches, vibrant reefs, iconic wildlife and sun-scorched deserts that stretch to the horizon and beyond.

beaches & islands

Australia has some truly sublime stretches of coastline, from city beaches like Sydney’s famous Bondi to the sugary white sands of the Whitsunday Islands. It’s also home to the Great Barrier Reef, the most spectacular marine ecosystem on the planet.

The ‘Red Centre’ is the inhospitable yet utterly compelling heart of Australia, home to majestic Uluru (Ayers Rock) and an ancient Aboriginal culture. Travelling around the Outback you’ll also encounter Australia’s famous wildlife, including kangaroos, koalas and crocodiles.

LGBT-friendly cities

Sydney is one of the world’s great gay cities, with legendary nightlife, fantastic beaches and the famous Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras at the end of February. Cosmopolitan Melbourne offers a more chilled out experience, with an arty, bohemian vibe.


61.6% of Australians have emphatically voted YES to allowing same-sex marriage. The survey, which had been deemed bitter and divisive, received responses from almost 80% of the country's eligible voters. Way to go Australia, we love you!
