Australia Travel Guide

Helpful information about vacationing in (or moving to) Australia.

Discover Australia

Australia. A country full of animals strange enough for a fairy tale. A land so vast that it encompasses deserts, snowy mountain tops, virgin rainforests, and two oceans lapping at its shores. A country whose people live everywhere from artificial caves to shining skyscrapers, whose musical culture stretches from someone playing the didgeridoo in the Outback to a symphony orchestra performing in one of the most iconic buildings on earth.

Sydney Day Trip Ideas: Manly and the Manly Ferry

The Manly Ferry is a perfect way to get out on the water, see the islands, appreciate the view across the opera house and the bridge from the water, take in the mind-blowingly beautiful real estate along the coast, and sit back and enjoy being out on the harbor for a fraction of the price of a harbor cruise.
