Airlines and routes,

Australia Day is celebrated annually on January 26, and to mark the occasion, we thought it fitting to show you a snippet of what this wonderful country has to offer and help entice you to book a trip there for the future. Lucky for you, we have direct flights to Perth from Heathrow, and we also fly to Sydney and Melbourne. So here are some of the top things to do in each beautiful city. 


Soak up some sun in Sydney

From iconic landmarks to golden sanded beaches, Sydney has it all and is one of the best places to appreciate Australia's beauty. Here are some of the main attractions and sights to see in Sydney that’ll make your visit a truly memorable one.

Sydney Opera House

Located on the gorgeous Sydney Harbour, the famous Sydney Opera House hosts over 1,000 world-class performances a year, from symphony musical performances to classical ballet numbers. The impressive architectural landmark is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed building and offers daily guided tours in a range of languages, allowing you to enjoy this beautiful building fully.

Sydney Harbour Bridge

Just a stone’s throw away from the Opera House stands another iconic landmark, the remarkable Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is the world's largest steel bridge and spans the entire harbour. It is a fundamental structure in the heart of the city, linking motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians across the city. You can even climb to the bridge’s peak for the most incredible views.  

Bondi Beach

A trip to Sydney is incomplete without a visit to the iconic Bondi Beach, with its shimmering blue waters and laid-back vibe. One of the best ways to take in the natural beauty of this famous beach is by doing the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk. The picturesque 6km route offers continuous views of the ocean until you reach Coogee.  


Paint the town red in Perth

Nestled between the vast waters of the Indian Ocean and the mighty expanses of the outback is the charming city of Perth. There is so much to do in this buzzing cosmopolitan haven, but here are the top picks to help you make the most of your time there.

Swan River

Known as the liquidised beating heart of Perth, Swan River makes contact with a number of the city’s neighbourhoods as it reaches the Indian Ocean. The river passes through a lot of the city’s key places, such as the Swan Valley wine region, the port city of Fremantle and Perth’s Central Business District. There are several recreational activities and opportunities to get involved on both the banks and in the water.

Rottnest Island

If you want a little break from the city and fancy an idyllic retreat, then Rottnest Island is the ideal place to go. Less than an hour from Perth, it is an oasis filled with white sandy beaches and rocky coves for you to explore and enjoy. You can really soak up its natural wonders through snorkelling, hiking, whale-watching and spotting wildlife along the coast.

Fremantle Markets

The Fremantle Markets have been housed in an ancient Victorian marketplace for over a century. They are a Western Australian Institution that hosts an array of colourful markets selling fresh produce and unique gifts and souvenirs. It is a great place to visit for a spot of shopping and to enjoy the fun atmosphere of entertaining street performers.  


Make some marvellous memories in Melbourne

Melbourne is now considered the largest city in Australia, recently snatching the title from Sydney. It is considered the country’s cultural capital with its European ambience and culinary delights. Whether you’re there for a few short days or planning a longer trip, there is so much to do in Melbourne and here are some of the top things to do to make the most of it.

Great Ocean Road

If you’d like to get behind the wheel and see as much of Melbourne as possible, then you have to hit up Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. Not only is it one of the most famous driving routes in the world, but it also offers spectacular scenic surprises at every corner and turn. You will drive along some of the most gorgeous white sandy beaches in Australia while coming across quant coastal towns, pockets of rain forest and koala bears on the way.

Twelve Apostles

If you decide to drive the iconic Great Ocean Road, you’re in for a real treat at the end of the route. Your drive will end at the Twelve Apostles, a set of eight rock formations (there used to be twelve) projecting out of the Southern Ocean. These famous pillars used to be attached to the nearby cliffs but have been eroded by the ocean over the years to form the pillars and caves they stand as today.

Federation Square

One of the best ways to explore Melbourne is simply by wandering, so don’t worry if you don’t want to drive on the Great Ocean Road, as the cosmopolitan city has so much to offer on foot. The best place to start is at Federation Square, which is in the heart of the city and a top meeting spot for locals. Several events throughout the year are held here, making it a popular attraction for travellers. There are also loads of restaurants and bars lining the square, and the Australian Art Museum can be found there if you fancy a bit of extra culture.
