Fraser Island & the Fraser Coast

North of popular Sunshine Coast, this little pocket of quintessential Queensland takes in World Heritage–listed Fraser Island; mellow coastal communities such as Hervey Bay and Rainbow Beach; the sugar-cane capital Bundaberg; and numerous old-fashioned country towns never too far from the ocean.

Mt Field National Park

Proclaimed in 1916, Mt Field is Tasmania's oldest national park (along with Freycinet) and sits little more than an hour's drive north of Hobart. There's an upstairs, downstairs structure to the park, with its rainforest-covered lower slopes leaking waterfalls, while its tips hold exposed alpine moorlands, a laid-back ski field and the wonderful Tarn Shelf, which turns on one of Tasmania's finest autumn spectacles when the native fagus (beech) glows gold.

The East Coast

Tasmania’s east coast is sea-salted and rejuvenating – a land of quiet bays and sandy shores, punctuated by granite headlands splashed with flaming orange lichen. The sand is white-blonde and the water is gin-clear. It looks as inviting as a tropical postcard, but when you strip off and plunge in, you'll probably be quickly out again – even in summer the water temperatures here can leave you breathless.

Cradle Country & The West

Welcome to the island's wild west, a land of endless ocean beaches, ancient mossy rainforests, tannin-tinted rivers, glacier-sculpted mountains and wildflower-strewn high plains – a place where you'll often feel like you're the only soul on earth. This is Tasmania’s vast outdoor playground, replete with national parks, conservation reserves and World Heritage–protected wilderness, where your options for adventure are varied and plentiful.

Victorian High Country

With its enticing mix of history, adventure and culinary temptations, Victoria's High Country is a wonderful place to spend some time. The Great Dividing Range – Australia’s eastern mountain spine – curls around eastern Victoria from the Snowy Mountains to the Grampians, peaking in the spectacular High Country. These are Victoria’s alps – a mountain playground attracting skiers and snowboarders in winter and bushwalkers and mountain bikers in summer. Here the mountain air is clear and invigorating, winter snowfalls at the resorts of Mt Buller, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek are fairly reliable, and the scenery is spectacular.

Canberra

Lately Canberra has been staking a claim for the title of Australia's coolest city – and we’re not just talking winter temperatures. Where else can you find superb dining and world-class cultural experiences only a short stroll from wildlife-filled bushland reserves and serene lakeshore views?

Hobart & Around

Australia’s second-oldest city and southernmost capital, Hobart is a city where nature rules. It stretches along the foot of kunanyi/Mt Wellington, angling down to the slate-grey Derwent River, which forms one edge of the city centre. The town’s colonial architecture and natural charms are complemented by world-class food and drink, innovative festivals and art experiences – Australia’s first-ever art exhibition was held here in 1837 and MONA, Hobart's Museum of Old and New Art, has stamped Tasmania onto the global cultural map.

Victoria

Melbourne is food-obsessed, marvellously multicultural and a showpiece for Australian culture. Beyond the city limits, Victoria offers rich history, stunning wilderness and culinary excellence.

Kakadu National Park

There is more than a national park at Kakadu; this place is also a vibrant, living acknowledgement of the elemental link between the Aboriginal custodians, the Bininj/Mungguy, and the country they have nurtured, endured and respected for thousands of generations. Encompassing almost 20,000 sq km (about 200km north–south and 100km east–west), it holds within its boundaries a spectacular ecosystem, periodically scorched and flooded, and mind-blowing ancient rock art.
