Australia, the world's smallest continent and largest island, is a land of spectacular beauty with dramatic landscapes. Explore Australia's aquatic and coastal experiences, nature and wildlife with Flying Squirrel Holidays, one of the leading tour operators of Kolkata. Popular Australian destinations include the coastal cities of Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, as well as the charming Queensland, the Gold Coast and the Great Barrier Reef. There are many exciting things you can do on a trip to Australia but here are the ones you just cannot miss. The Sydney Opera House on Bennelong Point is one of the world's greatest architectural icons. Enjoy an afternoon here and eat at its many restaurants. Drive down the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, one of Australia’s definitive wonders, a dazzling, heart-stopping, 150-mile drive along the hemline of the continent. The beauty of the Twelve Apostles here, where the raging Southern Ocean gnaws at the limestone cliffs, will make your heart skip a beat. Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is one of the most amazing living structures on the planet. It is nature’s most dazzling creations, a labyrinth of coral cays, islands, lagoons, channels and caverns furnished with an amazing variety of marine life. All you need do is put on a mask and snorkel, lie face down in the water and remember to breathe.
If you are in Melbourne take the famous Melbourne No 96 tram ride. In its nine-mile journey from the north of the city, across its heart and south to beachside St Kilda, the ride stitches together some of the city’s icons, including the Melbourne Museum, Exhibition Buildings, Carlton Gardens, State Parliament, the Bourke Street Mall and Luna Par.
When touring Australia, don’t miss sunset over the rust-red flanks of Uluru in Australia's Red Centre. This is a magic moment, and better still when viewed from a camel’s back. And finally, we recommend breakfast at Bondi – Australia’s most famous beach where you can literally shed all your inhibitions. Have breakfast at one of the beachfront cafés and top it off with a swim, or even a surf lesson. Talk to Flying Squirrel Holidays, the expert holiday planner, for a memorable holiday to Down Under
