Australia Holidays & Tours from South Africa

Look no further for holiday packages to Australia from South Africa. A holiday 'down under' offers a huge variety of options - from natural beauty and relaxing beach holidays to exciting and vibrant city action.

Start your adventure with flights into Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth or Adelaine and venture beyond. Explore the exotic islands of the Great Barrier Reef and the lush green tropical rainforests of north Queensland; or head outback to central Australia and the world's largest monolith to visit Uluru and the Kata Tjuta National Park, where you can witness ancient Aboriginal art over 40,000 years old.

Perhaps take a leisurely drive along Victoria's Great Ocean Road with a detour up the snow capped mountain, or one of the 10,000 sweeping sandy beaches along the coastline, or to the rolling vineyards of south-western Australia. Marvel at the architectural landmark of Sydney's Opera House and the bridge overlooking one of the world's greatest harbours, or head out to Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, with 300 days of sunshine annually, 70 kilometres of patrolled sandy beaches, excellent shopping and exciting theme parks.
