From exploring snow-covered slopes on the Great Dividing Range on your skis to rock climbing on the island of Tasmania, there is so much to do. From rainforests in the north or one of the driest deserts in the entire world in its center and the Great Barrier Reef along the coastline, there’s no shortage of amazing sights to see here.

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world, stretching over 7.5 million square kilometers. It is also the world’s flattest, driests and least densely populated continent, meaning there are plenty of incredible opportunities for exploration.
Due to its location south of the equator, most outdoor activities in Australia can be done year-round. Skiing is the exception, which requires snow to fall on its high\est mountain ranges in order to be done.
The center of the country gets quite hot in the summer, so popular activities such as base walks around Uluru, are best doen in other seasons.
Due to its immense size, it would be nearly impossible to see all of Australia in just open trip. However, exploring some of Australia’s cities should also be on your itinerary. Sydney is especially beautiful with its great ocean views, fabulous beaches amazing seafood and iconic architecture.
Australia is quite a large country and therefore the weather varies considerably. Generally, the country receives very little rainfall – less than 600 mm per year – except in the northernmost part of the country. Average daily temperatures range from 18 ºC to 30 ºC, depending on your location and the season.
Depending on where you are heading in Australia, you will likely fly into the international airports in Sydney (SYD), Melbourne (MEL), Perth (PER) or Darwin (DRW). From here, renting a car is the easiest way to travel through the country.
