Tailor-made holidays to Australia

Whether you're after tropical paradise, luxury escapism or an epic overland adventure on your Australian holiday, the people are friendly and the wine world class. Reefs and rainforests, wetlands and wineries, crocodiles and kangaroos - a trip to Australia has it all.

For many travellers, a visit to the Great Barrier Reef is the thrill of a lifetime. More than 2,000 kilometres of coast stretch along the reef, which is a habitat for over 1,500 species of fish and untold numbers of other sea animals and plants. For travellers looking for a scuba diving or snorkelling holiday, this is the finest destination in the world, and we offer a number of tours to the reef where you can experience these crystalline waters off the coast of Queensland for yourself.

Discover ancient Aboriginal culture on a tour to sacred Uluru, where the local Anangu people with traditions over 60,000 years old guard and protect the sandstone icon, also known as Ayers Rock. Many travellers dream of visiting Uluru, where sunrise and sunset seemingly light the stone from within and shift its colours from blazing red to deep purple and blue.

A luxury holiday to Australia gives you the opportunity to explore deeply the different regions of this vast country in comfort. Australia is wild, vast and untouched, yet cosmopolitan, cultural and cool. A coastline of surf beaches and dazzling coral reefs shows off Aussie surf culture, while the iconic Outback offers a majestic experience - silent and splendidly isolated. For travellers who love a party, don't miss the region's fun-loving Gold Coast, and for some of the world' most pristine beach getaways, a holiday to Perth may be just the thing.

There is no best time to visit Australia - every season offers sun and smiles across the continent. And since it is so vast, you'll be glad to have Wexas tailor-make your itinerary so you don't miss a thing. We work with some of the finest luxury hotels and resorts in Australia, so your expert travel consultant will be able to help you find exactly the right accommodations for your dream holiday. And if you want to learn more, our team is constantly travelling and bringing back local information to help you get to know the country before you leave - you can read them right here.

From Tasmania's heritage listed highlands to Sydney's iconic harbour and envied lifestyle, Melbourne's historic laneways, the Top End's legendary wilderness areas... there's nothing like Australia.

Australia's seasons are the opposite of those in the northern hemisphere. December to February is summer for much of the country, and the best time for beach or outdoor activities, but this is the wet season in the tropical north. It's also school holiday season, so expect to be joined by plenty of locals. Winter (June to August) is mostly mild, but snowy in the southern mountains and dry and sunny in the northern states. Low season elsewhere, Winter is the best time to visit the Northern Territory, Queensland and the northern part of Western Australia.
