A travel journalist has set out his top tips on making the most of a holiday to Australia.
People booking flights to Australia from the UK will probably want to make the most of their time down under.
Ben Hall, a travel journalist with the Daily Mail, has offered tourists his top tips on how to get the best out of an Australian holiday.
For first-time visitors to the country, he suggests taking in the “classic triangle”. According to Mr Hall, this blends culture with iconic landmarks and nature in a trip which takes in “Sydney, the Rock and the Reef”.
Tourists on a two-week trip may want to follow his guide on how to spend their time effectively.
In his article in the publication this weekend, Mr Hall suggests spending five nights in Sydney, which was recently voted Australia’s leading destination at the World Travel Awards. He adds that holidaymakers “must” book onto a Harbour Bridge climb.
His next recommendation is to fly into the outback to visit Uluru, one of Australia’s best-known attractions. From there he advises a five-night stay in Port Douglas.
Travellers who choose to visit this coastal Queensland town will be right on the edge of the Coral Sea, with access to some of the world’s best snorkelling and scuba diving.
