Australia is a small continent but a massive country that is roughly the same size as the continental United States. It has nearly 450 paved and unpaved airports spread across the country. Home to endless beaches, sunny days, kangaroos and koalas, rugged bushlands, dazzling red deserts and lush rainforests, Australia attracts more than 28 million international passengers every year.

Flights Australia arrive from multiple airlines, including:

• Qantas
• Air New Zealand
• United
• Cathay Pacific
• British Airways
• Emirates Airlines
• Air Canada
• Air China
• China Airlines
• Korean Airlines
• Japan Airlines
• Asiana Airlines
• Thai Airlines
• Indonesian Airlines
• South African Airlines

Of the nearly 30 international airports in the country, all have public transportation options. Bus, taxis, private car hires and shuttles are most common, but trains are frequent transportation options as well. Accommodations are plentiful, particularly around airports and in major and capital cities. Travellers can choose from budget hotels, four- and five-star hotels, boutique hotels and serviced apartments.

If you are planning to fly to Australia, you will need a valid visa unless you are a citizen of Australia or New Zealand. You can apply at any Australian Consulate for tourist, student, working holiday or other types of visas. New Zealand citizens may wait to apply for their visas until they arrive in Australia. The laws of Australia do not permit visitors to bring in any weapons, drugs, steroids, foods and certain other items. If you are bringing more than $10,000 into the country, you will need to declare it. Travel insurance can be a wise choice and can protect you against accidents, medical emergencies and theft or loss.

Planning your holiday can be exciting, but remembering a few simple tips can ensure a safer, healthier, more memorable trip. Pack for the trip you’re planning. The climate can vary dramatically, from steamy and tropical in the north to cool and breezy in the south with the hot desert of the Red Centre in between. Seasons in Australia run contrary to those of the Northern Hemisphere. Australian winters are usually mild but can be cold and bring snow in some areas. Summers can be hot and dry, or they can be wet and rainy.

Top destinations in Australia include Uluru, or Ayers Rock, and the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Cairns. Fraser Island, the world’s largest sand island, and the Whitsundays are both some of the loveliest islands in the country and the world. The Daintree is the world’s oldest rainforest where you can hike through dense jungles, past rushing waterfalls, along steep cliffs and through beautiful mountain ranges. For a more cosmopolitan adventure, try Sydney, Melbourne, Perth or one of Australia’s other vibrant capital cities. Each has its own unique personality and a broad range of activities, cultural attractions, scenery and nightlife. From the mountains to the Red Centre and from the vineyards to the opal fields, there is always something to do Down Under.
