Destination

Australia is known for its phenomenal level of sport. From rugby to cricket, hockey, tennis and netball, Australia strives to be the best. This country makes for a great multi-sport destination. Australia is one of the most interesting continents around. It is also undeniably one of the most spectacular stretches of coast anywhere on Earth. The Australian Outback is one of the most unique and surreal places to visit. Imagine a land of bright red earth littered with white sand dunes and the occasional canyon full of trickling waterfalls and aboriginal cave drawings.

BEST TIME TO TOUR:

A country of two climates, Australia’s northern half is driest and most accessible between April & September. Warm sunny days show the national parks and beaches at their very best, providing opportunities for swimming and BBQ’s. The North is humid from October to March, with more rainfall, but this is offset by the active wildlife and reinvigorated rainforests & wetlands. In the southern half of Australia, the summer months of December to February bring hot weather.
