Don’t underestimate the joy that can come from exploring your own backyard. In Australia, diversity is the name of the game. There’s the red raw outback where travellers gather from all around the world to see the sunset work its colourful magic over Uluru. There are wine regions where a glass of red is best enjoyed with a fine view; ski fields covered in powder; bustling cities brimming with coffee shops and icons; and lush tropical rainforests that hum to a soundtrack of wildlife and tranquil waterfalls. All of that, surrounded by a rim of picture-perfect beaches, and the Great Barrier Reef. So, what are you waiting for?
