Make Australia a Holiday Destination
It is quite easy to get around this large country. Although it is just on 4000 kilometres from east to west and nearly the same from DARWIN in the Northern Territory to HOBART on the south Island of Tasmania you can fly to most of Australia in a few hours. There are still a few leisurely train rides that can be enjoyed to travel between the major cities.
Once you arrive in Australia you have a number of choices to let you get around and see the country. Firstly you can simply go with a GUIDED TOUR and take it easy while meeting other people along the way.
Bus or Coach Tours and Rail Tours are the most popular extended tours and you will find you can often be very flexible with some tour companies.
Coach or Bus Tours
Bus & Coach tour travelling allows you to stop, see, smell and touch and to spend a little time inspecting and taking photos of what you see.
You can travel from the north to the south on the great Australian outback train THE GHAN and from the Pacific Coast in Sydney in the east to the Indian Ocean and Perth on the West Coast on THE INDIAN PACIFIC.
THE SUNLANDER runs from Brisbane to Cairns and the faster TILT TRAIN also is an option though the facilities are not as available onboard and there are no sleeping cars.

Or you may decide on your own daily itinerary and go by public transport, either by plane, rail or coach.

Many wedding car companies will arrange mid-week excursions and there are also services that will drive you around, a great option if you want to enjoy a few drinks on a wine tour for example.
You may need to book ahead on some of these services and in fact if you DO know where you want to go and when you can save quite a lot of money by booking a few weeks ahead. On our TRAVELLING WITHIN AUSTRALIA pages you wil find links to rail and bus companies to help you plan ahead.
Wherever you go in Australia you will find some wonderful scenery and plenty to do. Make an itinery of the SPORTING EVENTS, FESTIVALS and other OTHER MAJOR EVENTS that are always happening around the country - AND DON'T FORGET THE CAMERA AND DIARY!
