The sixth largest country in the world, Australia is known for its magnificent wilderness and its vibrant urban destinations. Originally inhabited by indigenous peoples with a history spanning 60,000 years before European settlers arrived, this ancient island continent includes lush tropical rainforests in the North-East, mountain ranges in the South and desert throughout much of its interior. The variety of habitats contributes to its impressive level of endemism – 84% of its mammal species are endemic. It’s that flora and fauna that many travelers come for – koala, eucalyptus, kangaroo, platypus, wombat and emu.
The Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest reef system and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, covers over 344,000 square kilometers in the Coral Sea off Queensland. In addition to these natural wonders, Australia boasts culturally diverse cities home to renowned arts and theatre, architecture and cuisine. Your Travel Guru, a born and bred Aussie, is incredibly well-versed in the latest Australia has to offer – luxury ‘safari’ lodges, private guided tours and behind-the-scene experiences.
