There’s an innovative food scene, prestigious wine industry, vibrant art and a warm, laid-back people to welcome you. While not lagging far behind the United States in scale, Australia has a population of just 23 million who mostly live around the idyllic coast in modern cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, leaving the immense centre as wilderness, affectionately known as the Outback.
There’s also the beautiful and remote Top End sitting next to the equally remarkable state of Western Australia, unique islands such as Tasmania, Kangaroo Island and the white sanded Whitsundays that sit between the northeast coast of Queensland and the rich waters of the Great Barrier Reef.
Blessed with sunshine, it is a place where as much time as possible is spent outdoors, whether surfing, fishing, boating or barbecuing, and there’s no better way to experience Australia than by joining in.
And then there’s Australia’s wildlife, a long geographic period of isolation giving rise to a unique species – marsupials such as koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and bandicoots and egg-laying mammals, like the platypus – along with huge saltwater crocodiles, fearsome snakes and some of the best marine wildlife watching opportunities in the world.
Australia offers an impressive diversity of experiences, from the north where two UNESCO sites meet, the largest reef in the world, Great Barrier Reef, and the oldest rainforest, The Daintree. Down South to Kangaroo Island, providing you a chance to see Australias endemic wildlife in the wild and Tasmania, for its rugged mountainous beauty, then journeying into Outback where you will find yourself surrounded by the scorched red earth and blanketed by the huge blue sky.

Where to go in Australia
Overall they did a great job. Our only concerns were that most of the accommodations were mediocre, for our family. The accommodations may be amazing for others but for us, we wanted a little more. All the activities were amazing though.
It was an incredible experience. Jacada took the typical stress associated with planning such a big trip & worry about any potential glitches completely out of the picture. Everything went perfectly. From our transfers to our accommodations to our excursions... it exceeded our expectations. I will be using Jacada Travel for all of my future big adventures.
We have always had good service from Jacada in the many trips we have fone
Overall very satisfied. Only one misstep - one hotel was not quite up to par. Also, we should have upper level rooms in the various hotels, which is not always the case. All tours were wonderful and well planned. Duration of the various tours should be indicated to facilitate dinner reservations. We would recommend Jacada as a reliable partner for…
Just returned from a fantastic fast paced 17 day trip to Australia. Could not be more pleased with the effort of the Jacada staff. Great to work with in planning and extremely responsive to our request. Great recommendations. Jane and Wing certainly earned five stars. This was largely a private tour and the accommodations, food and experiences were excellent and…

When to go
With Australia’s immense size and diverse landscapes, different regions are best visited at different times of year, and no matter the month, somewhere will be in its prime. The southern coastal cities are wonderful all year round, if a touch cooler in winter between May and August. This, however, is the ideal time to explore the Red Centre, Queensland, Great Barrier Reef and North West, areas which are very hot and humid in the summer.
