Australia, a country the other side of the world with the feel of a continent, has always inspired travellers. First of all, it boasts vast natural landscapes and a wild and beautiful bush. In the Outback, in the very heart of the country, red earth provides a striking contrast with the blue sky, and unmissable sites are dotted across these arid landscapes, such as Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta (the Olga mountains). The Aborigines have always inhabited this land - learn more about them at the National Gallery of Victoria Australia or, in situ, in the Arnhem Land region.Australia also boasts a stunning coastline. The Great Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers unequalled opportunites for swimming and diving right out in the Pacific Ocean, while another national pastime, surfing, can be enjoyed at beaches such as Bells Beach on the Great Ocean Road. Even the famous city of Sydney cultivates a double life of urban pleasures and seaside activities. Adventures and a relaxed way of life await visitors to this unique country, where culture also plays its part thanks to the creative arts, a delicious and varied cuisine, and renowned wines.
