Fast-paced Sydney is Australia’s largest city and the capital of New South Wales, home to spectacular escarpments and bohemian mountains villages, Hollywood-famous Outback towns and celebrity-magnet surf beaches. Its southeast corner harbours the Australian Capital Territory, home to the nation’s capital, Canberra, and its plethora of important cultural sites.
Further south, Victoria - Australia’s second most populous state - serves up cool-climate wine regions, temperate rainforests, world-famous coastal drives and the cosmopolitan cool of Australia’s second-largest city Melbourne. Below it lies the island state of Tasmania and its UNESCO-listed wilderness, evocative convict ruins, and provocative art museum MONA. South Australia pours historic wine regions, rugged Outback ranges and the easy sophistication of its compact capital Adelaide, home to internationally renowned arts festivals.
With Perth as its vibrant, sun-drenched capital, Western Australia spans southern vineyards and towering forests to otherworldly northern deserts. Across the border, the Northern Territory is Australia’s ancient soul, where awe-inspiring sites like Uluru and Kakadu meet a strong, vibrant indigenous presence. To the east sprawls Queensland. With up-and-coming Brisbane as its capital, Australia’s favourite holiday state lures with its ancient rainforests, celestial beaches, tropical islands and good-times vibe.
