The world's largest island and the world's smallest continent, Australia is like nowhere else on earth. A place where superlatives and expectations collide, where an ancient past is inseparable from the modern present with hyper-sophisticated cities rising glittering into the clear blue Antipodean sky.

Holidays to Australia with Abercrombie & Kent will get you closer to the people and places that make this fascinating country so special.

The Barrier Reef, off the Queensland coast, is one of the world's natural wonders, protecting a mountain coast draped with untouched rainforest, and a magnet for many luxury Australia holidays and Australia honeymoons. In the vast inland deserts, mountains, valleys, rivers and plains, the ancient Aboriginal cultures add a spiritual dimension to timeless landscapes.

Holidays to Australia would not be complete without a visit to New South Wales, home to the big city buzz of Sydney, beaches at Byron Bay and the dramatic Blue Mountains.  With so much to offer you will be amazed at what you'll find here from festivals to fine food and wine trails, amazing landscapes and friendly locals.

The Outback is dominated by mighty Ayers Rock (Uluru) in the Northern Territory, a towering monolith with mystical tales of the Aborigines and where centuries-old rock paintings are waiting to be discovered. Continue your luxury Australia travel further north where the wilds of Kakadu National Park, showcase rugged Australian beauty at its best.

Australia holidays in the southernmost state of Victoria offer dramatic coastlines along one of the world's most travelled roads, leading to Adelaide (South Australia) with its multitude of churches and the renowned Barossa Valley where you can indulge in a tipple of fine Australian wine.

Last, but by no means least, is the largest state of Australia, Western Australia. Home of the quokka, a furry little marsupial that will delight even the most experienced nature lover.
