A favourite destination of those fond of new experiences, of young adults in search of adventure, Australia is the ideal place to recharge your batteries in a setting that is both a change of scene and yet familiar. If many things will seem unknown to you, other things will make you feel at home in this country, which is a skilful blend of British and Aboriginal heritage. You will see that in Australia, barbecue culture is everywhere, that on the beaches, you find ready-to-use appliances! You will see also, that surfing is not a legend, but is really part and parcel of Australian culture. You will be surprised at the dozens of wild and extraordinary sites that the country has in store, like the Bungle Bungle Range, a real treasure. You will also understand that Australia is the place where human and animal interaction happens all the time. On Kangaroo Island, you will come close to koalas comfortably seated on their eucalyptus branch, just like you will swim alongside dolphins. Going to Australia is going to meet a country full of resources capable of satisfying the desires of both families and the most foolhardy. See more

The best cities to visit in Australia

There are many great reasons to visit Australia and its cities. On top of being modern and well-developed, they offer countless cultural highlights and unique attractions. You'll find world-class hotels, amazing dining, and many great day-trips within reach of all of Australia's best cities.

What makes Australia’s cities unique?

On the east coast, you will find Australia's two largest cities, the bustling metropolises of Sydney and Melbourne. Further north is tropical Darwin, a great base for exploring unique nature and wildlife. On the other side of the country to the west and south, you'll find Perth and Adelaide, where sublime beaches await.

The top cities in Australia to include in your trip itinerary

Australia's cities offer a range of climates, landscapes, and activities, from museums and fine dining to hiking and scuba diving. To discover the hidden charm of each city, having a local guide is indispensable. Evaneos works with local professional agents who will make sure you see the very best that the city has to offer.

  • Take in the harbor city of Sydney

    Also known as the Harbor City for its spectacular location around a sparkling blue harbor, Australia's largest city houses two of its most famous attractions, the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge, as well as some beautiful beaches, great restaurants and spectacular coastal walks.

  • Celebrate world culture in Melbourne

    One of the largest cities in Australia, Melbourne is a hotbed for culture of all varieties. The city offers the best in arts and entertainment, as well as being a dynamic melting pot of communities from all over the world and across many generations.

  • Explore vineyards and the sea in Adelaide

    Adelaide is a southern city that's known for being quiet and relaxed. A city of over 1 million people which feels more like a beachside town, enjoy the convenience of being in the city while visiting gorgeous sandy beaches and tranquil vineyards.

  • Discover the tropical north in Darwin

    Head to hot and steamy Darwin in the tropical north to experience a unique culture, as well as explore the epic Kakadu National Park.

  • Meet the local wildlife in Perth

    Across in the west, Perth offers visitors the opportunity to encounter amazing wildlife. You can also get up close and personal with unique native animals such as kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas.

Tips for planning a city break in Australia

Getting between different cities in Australia involves traveling long distances; this is an enormous country and unless you have a lot of time it is generally best to travel by plane. However, if you do have some time and would like a unique experience, there are some great train journeys available such as the Indian Pacific which runs from Sydney to Perth or the Ghan from Adelaide to Darwin. The best time to visitmost cities is spring (September to November) or fall (March to May) as summer can get uncomfortably warm throughout Australia.
