Experience Your Best Australia Vacation

This island nation is bound by mile after mile of coastline. The vast majority of Aussies live near the over 10,000 beaches, infusing the culture with a laid-back lifestyle.  Teeming with a wealth of wildlife and natural wonders Australia is a famed mecca for outdoor adventurers.  Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef is a global landmark, and is famously visible from space. From Sidney’s million-dollar harbor views to Melbourne’s tiny trattorias, Australia is an island, a continent, a nation bursting with adventure.

Let Orbitz help you plan your Australia travel, with great deals on flights and vacation packages. 

Best time to take a vacation to Australia

The summer months, October through March, are hot, humid and wet. The dry season runs from April to September. During this time, the average temperature ranges from the mid-60s to the high 80s, and it rarely rains. During June, July and August, cities and beaches are crowded with tourists. Hotels and flights are also booked well in advance from Boxing Day through the end of January, which is when Aussies take their vacations. If you want to avoid the crowds, enjoy nice weather and steer clear of peak-season prices, visit Australia anytime from mid-September to the end of October.

Insider tips for Australia travel

Mission Beach

If you blink while driving down Bruce Highway, you'll miss Mission Beach. This tiny town is surrounded by lush rainforest and has a pristine beach.

Hyams Beach

Load up on sunscreen and head to Hyams Beach. Located in Jarvis Bay, this beach is said to have the whitest sand in the world.

Indian Tea House

Have brunch at the Indian Tea House. The restaurant overlooks the sea along Cottesloe Beach, a petite out-of-the way beach in Perth.

Star of Greece Café

This 1950s kiosk sits on the top of the cliff overlooking Port Willunga. It serves some of the country's best seafood and offers an amazing view.

Central Tilba

Browse antique stores and admire historic buildings in this quaint New South Wales hamlet.
