There really is something for everyone in this amazing country. Its ancient outback lands, vibrant cities, stunning beaches and great weather means you really can experience a holiday of a lifetime.
I'm British and have spent the last 7 years living here in Sydney. I've had the chance to travel Australia and see its many wonders. You can use me as your official guide to the best places to visit, sometimes off the tourist track.
