"Australia is the best country on the planet"
It depends on what you view as 'best'. Perhaps 'varied' would be a better word. Australia is so huge, that it has four time zones, lush tropical rainforests, arid deserts, snow-capped mountains and incredible beaches. The Great Barrier Reef - the world's largest coral reef system lines the eastern coastline while its wildlife is almost entirely unique.
When it’s not too hot, the Aussies are an athletic, energetic and playful bunch who will always welcome anyone who wants to join in.
Regardless of the stereotypes, there is no typical Australian. The country’s history of immigration and settlement has left behind a multi-ethnic population. What they do all have, is an absolute respect and passion for preserving and protecting all that make Australia special. Show the same level of care and you’ll always be welcome here.
It’s not possible to sum up the Australian climate in a few sentences with any sort of accuracy. The size of this country means that while one region may be sweltering in 40°C heat, the other may have snow. Think carefully where you want to visit and do a little research before you head off. Any journey that looks short on your map is likely to mean a long journey in the hire car. Always carry water and keep your mobile charged.
Clichéd as it sounds, the Aussies do love a good barbie but they cook prawns, not shrimp, and they don’t just throw anything on it; steaks, sausages and vegetables are all picked and prepared with care. There’s an art to a great barbeque and the folk down under are masters of it.
Hugh Jackman, Geoffrey Rush, Nicole Kidman and the tiny pop princess Kylie Minogue all come from the land down under.
Australia is the only country in the world that is also a continent.

It's hot. Really hot. The best idea is to hire a car and head straight for the coast. Escape the heat and head to Coober Pedy. It's a whole town underground. It's also famous for it's Opals. If you're feeling adventurous head to the Flinders Ranges. Try your hand at rock climbing, a four-wheel drive or just snap away at the jaw-dropping structures.
Unlike most Australian states, you can't do a u-turn at traffic lights.
Brisbane - home to a place called Funny Dunny. Pop on your sunnies, jump in your hire car and explore at your leisure. Take the hire car down to Moreton Bay. Watch whales migrate, go for a kayak or tackle the world's tallest sand dune (not in your hire car). After all that action, sit back and relax in Byron Bay. Head to the lighthouse, it's Australia's most easterly point. Fair dinkum.
Australia's roads are very straight. Take a rest every couple of hours.
Australia's tropical playground. Jet-skiing around shark-infested Magnetic Island is a must but hire a car and explore further a field. Head to Airlie Beach and catch a sail boat out to the Whitsunday Islands. Swap your driving specs for a snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef. Drive south for a spot of turtle watching. It's more impressive than it sounds. There's also a rum distillery if it helps?
Cairns's kangaroo suicide rate is high. Watch out for any about to jump in front of you.
Four seasons in one day. It may be crowded in the city but that's no reason to stay in. Hire a car and see the sights instead. There's no better scenic drive than the Great Ocean Road. It's a pretty long stretch but just think of all the photo opportunities. Had enough of pretty pictures? Head down to St Kilda for some fun at the fairground.
Watch out for people getting of the trams in the city centre. Our collision damage waiver doesn't cover it.
After a bit of space? Western Australia has over one million square miles of it. Perth is the perfect base to hire a car and go exploring. Swap you're hire car for a kite surf down at Cottesloe or Scarborough. Just make sure you have a lesson first. If the wallet's feeling a bit light. Take the hire car to Kalgoorlie for a spot of gold panning.
Don't just point and laugh at the signs that ask you if you're awake.
Tops the charts as number one Aussie destination for us Brits. We love it. Book car hire and see it for yourself. Surfing is a must for any visit to Sydney. Hit the waves with the locals at the famous Bondi Beach. Scared of big waves? Try climbing the Harbour Bridge instead. They'll look smaller from up there. Also you get to wear a pretty smooth jumpsuit.
If you're driving into the city get in the right lane at the toll booths. You don't want to end up going through a tunnel and not over one of the most famous bridges in the world. Disaster.
