Let us put "JOY" in your travel!
Get away from it all. Change your scenery, change your scene. Why not go and visit a country that is strangely, vaguely familiar and yet completely different, all at the same time.
Australia is a land of vivacious, friendly people, strange and unusual animals and landscapes and vistas that will take your breath away. A unique blend of recent British cultural heritage mixed in with millennia-old aboriginal traditions and customs.
It is a land that has fascinated people and civilizations since Roman times and perhaps even before that. From the Romans, we have the first written record of a reference to a rumour, a legend, of some mystical land situated in the south, which they referred to as “Terra Australis Incognita”, the unknown land down south. Luckily for you it’s not unknown anymore and you can take advantage of modern technology to visit this fascinating continent and satisfy whatever particular interest you might have. Australia truly does have it all. If you’re looking for great seascapes, you can choose between the Pacific and Indian Ocean, as Australia is gently lapped by both.
Keeping it Civil
If you want cutting-edge fashion, art and culture, head to some of the major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne and you’ll find all of that and more. Want to see eons-old natural landscapes unspoiled by even a hint of modern civilization? The interior of Australia is vast and extensive, and you can experience one of the world’s great deserts by visiting the Red Centre.
One small step for you
All it takes is a quick phone call, or a couple of mouse clicks on your computer and you could be booking flights to Australia in no time. You’ll find them probably less expensive than you had even imagined, and can start mapping out your itinerary. If you’re interested in sports, then you probably have heard, or possibly seen some of the great Australian teams on television, or perhaps during one of their occasional visits to the United Kingdom. Here’s your chance to see them in their local setting; on their home turf. Their rugby teams are deservedly famous for their athletic prowess and enviable winning record. But their field hockey and cricket teams are also nothing to sneeze at. Having picked up these traditions from the early English settlers, they have made the sports their own, and have become international powerhouses. While less of a spectator sport, swimming is also an event where Australia has won many international competitions, including several Olympic events. And why not? With so much exposure to the ocean, swimming is practically part of the Australian DNA.
If you get to the beach, you might want to try your hand at surfing, or even the latest sensation among today’s youth, kite surfing, which as the name implies, involves strapping yourself to a kite and surfing along the ocean, heading wherever the wind takes you. Now that sounds like an adventure!
Arts, food, sport, majestic landscapes, ancient cultures and amazingly friendly people. What more could you ask for?
