There has never been a better time to visit Australia for us Brits! While the land down under may have seemed like a distant far-off dream land for most of us for the longest time, with the introduction of the first non-stop flights to Perth coming very soon it is about to become a lot more popular and accessible as a holiday destination. In fact now might be the exact time to start thinking about planning your ultimate Australia holiday itinerary!
Writer, travel enthusiast and all round Sydney-expert Roxana Oliver gives us the lowdown on the three best day trips to take from the city to see a different side of Australia…
When someone mentions a vacation in Australia, most of us probably think about all the animals that might kill us. But other than being known as one of the deadliest continents in the world, Australia is also widely recognised as a place of marvellous nature, unique wildlife and of course, metropolitan cities. Sydney, one of Australia’s largest cities is also among the top fifteen most-visited cities in the world – and for a good reason too! If you were ever wondering what type of splendour awaits you in the land down under, then this is the perfect opportunity to find out. After long consideration, we’ve managed to single out 3 excursions in Sydney area, that you simply must do if you’re visiting. And here they are…
You’ve probably already got a variety of visuals when someone mentions Australia… but it’s not all about the beaches and the Opera House (although those are some very good draws that it would be amiss not to mention!) In fact one of the reasons I loved exploring the country so much was it’s vast and varied landscapes and so I’ve divided some of the panoramic photos from the last year into four categories demonstrating just some of the different sides I discovered.
If you’re not quite sold on Australia yet read on… I promise there’s something here for you.
After almost a whole year in Australia I finally made it to one of the places that had been top of my list to visit as soon as I knew I was headed over to this part of the world… the Blue Mountains.
Food in Sydney is something of a culinary exploration with every type of cuisine you can imagine and an endless list of excellent cafes and restaurants. In fact during our two week stint in Sydney we ate at least two meals a day at two new places each day and I don’t recall having a single bad experience. There were of course some stand outs. This food was so good that it would be a crime not to share where we found it. Bon appetit friends!
