Australia is a dream – an entire continent packed with awe-inspiring landscapes, incredible beaches and unique wildlife.

If you love to travel off the beaten path, there’s nowhere better to do it than in Australia. While everyone goes to the East Coast and Sydney, the rest of this immense country remains underexplored by travellers.
