From beautiful beaches, outback landscapes, culinary delights, native fauna and flora, arts and culture to iconic landmarks there is so much to discover, a visit to Australia will truly inspire and delight. Around Melbourne itself are inspiring day trips to the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula wine regions, the Great Ocean Road, the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island, historic Sovereign Hill and Healesville Sanctuary. Further afield, Melbourne’s airport offers easy access to attractions, including Sydney, Uluru (Ayer’s Rock) in the outback, the Great Barrier Reef and the wonderful beach resorts of the Whitsunday Islands.
