5 reasons to travel to Australia

A trip to Australia is something most travellers dream about. Whether you want to go for a holiday, to study or to emigrate, the country is like a magnet and its power of attraction is incredibly strong. Returning travellers are unanimous, you are guaranteed to discover an amazing country.

Measuring yourself against the wide-open spaces

If you're looking for a getaway, vastness and wide-open spaces as far as the eye can see. Australia is the place for you. The distance between cities is almost infinite. Between them is nature in every imaginable form and varied landscapes to take your breath away.

Discovering Aboriginal culture

To do this, you need to go to the Red Centre, Alice Springs and Ayers Rock, right in the middle of the land of the Indigenous Australians. Here, you can learn more about the beliefs, culture and art of this people. Cave paintings, artwork, the didgeridoo, how to throw a boomerang, ancestral legends - immerse yourself in the origins of a country.

Exploring cosmopolitan cities

Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and above all Sydney are considered to be amongst the most beautiful cities on the planet. They attract people from all over the world to the extent that they have truly become symbols of cosmopolitanism. This creates a unique and very pleasant atmosphere which is unusual for such big cities.

Diving on the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most extraordianry natural sites in the world. Go and try your hand at diving, or better still climb into a cage for a terrifying face to face encounter with a great white shark.

See animals that are unknown in Europe

Australia is home to totally unique species. Kangaroos, koalas, the world's most dangerous snakes, duck-billed platypuses, dingoes, wombats, possums and the incredible Tasmanian devil, all go to make up wildlife that only a trip to Australia will allow you to see.
