Australia Tourist Guide


Travelling on Australia's waterways offers the chance to discover a picturesque coastline, stunning rural scenes of the outback and the world's largest marine park. Few travel experiences can rival the excitement of sailing into the glistening Sydney harbor or cruising over the Great Barrier Reef. Larger than the Great Wall of China and the only living thing visible from space, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the natural world. It is probably the most appealing destination for visitors to Australia wanting to experience the country by boat. Enjoy a leisurely cruise through the heart of the great Murray River, between the Blanchetown area and Murray Bridge, and the breathtaking riverlands of South Australia.

The mighty Murray River in Mildura remains one of Australia's richest agriculture regions and a popular tourist destination. Meandering waterways breathe life into the striking red soil, creating fertile crops such as oranges and grapes and offers varied tapestry of landscapes. Cruise through miles of gorges, millions of years old. Take a small boat safari of the pristine wetlands, visit a riverside village, or take a nocturnal eco-tour before a riverside barbeque. Discover golden sandstone cliffs towering over blue-green lagoons, majestic red gum forests under endless blue skies and green irrigated farmlands against red desert plains.

Australia offers a diverse combination of sights, cultures and activities. Australia's most popular ports of call are on its east coast, and The Great Barrier Reef is easily accessible from this side of the country. But Australia has even more to offer visitors wishing to explore the country from the luxury and comfort of a cruise ship or river boat.

Australia's biggest attraction is its natural beauty; it is a land of contrasts - topographical, cultural, physical, and meteorological; from endless sun baked horizons to dense tropical rainforest to cool southern beaches. Scattered along the coasts, its cities blend a European gusto for art and food with a laid back love of sport and the outdoors.
