With holidays to Australia an exciting prospect for anyone, it is easy to feel confused about where in the vast continent to go in order to get the most from a break.

With holidays to Australia an exciting prospect for anyone, it is easy to feel confused about where in the vast continent to go in order to get the most from a break.

With this in mind, Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, in response to a reader enquiry in the Irish Independent, suggested a way of travelling around in order to experience some of the best sights.

He suggests Melbourne as a great child-friendly destination thanks to its theme parks, beaches and aquariums, while Cairns is good for outdoor pursuits.

“It has wildlife-packed rainforest, snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef and sunshine beaches,” the expert commented.

Meanwhile, Alice Springs encompasses Uluru (Ayers Rock) and could be good for families on holidays to Australia.

Make use of bargain rooms in hostels and self-cater where you can [to save money],” Mr Hall suggests.

Anyone interested in booking flights to Australia may be interested to know that Qantas offers such services from the UK.
