Geographically speaking, Australia is a global anomaly. The Aussie mainland is the world's largest island, and is the only continent to also double as an island. With some of the world's oldest geological features, Australia is also the world's driest continent.
Famous natural landmarks include The Great Barrier Reef and Ayres Rock as well as a trip to the 'Bush' and 'Outback' and see kangaroos and koalas in their native habitat.
Visit the major cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Perth and in the evening enjoy some of Australia's world-famous wines.
For sports enthusiasts depending on the season there's cricket, rugby, tennis and Formula 1. Or sample a game of Aussie Rules Footie.
And depending when you travel you could find yourself eating Christmas dinner on the beach.
