The Australian landscape is vast and varied with arid deserts, golden beaches, rugged mountains and lush tropical forests, making it one of the most exciting places on earth to explore.
Australia is also a great place for adventure and ‘ultimate’ sports. Scuba diving, bungee jumping, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, sailing, surfing and climbing are as widely available as less extreme options such as bush walking and horse riding in the outback. Alternatively head for one of Australia’s vibrant and exciting cities such as Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne.
There is plenty of budget accommodation throughout the country. Hostels are also great places to meet other young people of all nationalities.
