Holiday In Australia   by Kimi Anderson

As a country renowned for its laidback attitude to life, it is no surprise that when it comes to holidaying in Australia, there are a plethora of options available, regardless of whether your ideal holiday is a family-friendly break, romantic getaway, adrenaline-filled action adventure, a five-star luxurious experience, or a road trip along amazing coastlines or through picturesque towns - Australia will be able to meet and exceed your holidaying needs.

There are many fantastic holiday packages available for travellers of all types. For those travelling with children, you may be able to secure packages inclusive of accommodation and passes to local attractions that will entertain your children. Often these passes come at a discounted rate so you don't have to worry about breaking your budget.

Many accommodation websites such as bestwestern.com.au have great holiday packages available for all holiday types. If you are flexible with your dates and don't have your heart set on one particular hotel to stay in, there are many websites that offer last-minute deals. The website www.bestwestern.com.au also has a fantastic page dedicated solely to last-minute accommodation specials. Apart from the normal school holidays and internationally recognised holidays such as Christmas and Easter, Australia also celebrates numerous national public holidays such as Australia Day in January, ANZAC Day in April, the Queen's birthday in June, and Labour Day in October. Public holidays are popular times to take a mini break. Generally people will not travel too far from home, instead preferring to head up or down the coast for a few hours. Jump in the car, pop on your favourite CD and follow the scenic roads just a few hours north, south or west of the capitol cities to discover a whole new world of experiences.

It only takes a short drive to leave your everyday world behind. Discover a beautiful, beachside town or head inland to a quaint bed and breakfast in the mountains or in country village. If you are organised and book in advance, these public holidays are a great time to pick up some bargain holiday packages.

Australia is a land of diversity and offers holidays to suit people from all walks of life. For those who enjoy being active and discovering the outdoors, there are a variety of holiday packages that include leisure activities such diving, golf and bushwalking. Often these deals will include shuttle buses to and from your resort or hotel, which is a great money-saver and is very convenient.

If your adrenaline junkie days are over and you fancy yourself as more of a foodie who enjoys the finer things in life, there are many holiday destinations that are perfect for relaxing and enjoying some of the world's finest foods and wines. Regardless of where you are in Australia, all states and territories have a region dedicated to producing some the world's most exotic wines, freshest seafood, and premium meats, not to mention succulent cheeses and chocolates. Tourism Australia's official website has some fantastic information that will help you plan a mind-blowing holiday that will surpass all your culinary needs.

If you are a fashion guru, Sydney has the most dynamic, exciting and innovative fashion scene in the country. Collette Dinnigan, Akira Isogawa, sass & bide and Mambo are just some of the famous fashion names that call Sydney home. Whether it's haute couture, something smart for stepping out, a power suit or a pair of snazzy new shoes, Sydney has what it takes to add some shine to your world.

If a road trip is more your style, there are various amazing drives to immerse yourself in. Head for the country, from the sandstone wonders of the Blue Mountains and paranormal landscapes of Mungo National Park, to the friendly welcoming of towns such as Bathurst and Broken Hill. Visit the engaging beaches and bays of Tasmania's eastern coastline, basking in stunning Wineglass Bay, before encountering magnificent Cradle Mountain and the rocky landscapes of the west.

Take a memorable journey along the Great Ocean Road, passing the Twelve Apostles and limitless ocean vistas, and through the majestic Grampians and history-laden Victorian goldfields. Add some culture to your trip by taking a drive through the luscious Southern Highlands, discover the inspired architecture and cultural gems of our nation's capital or beach-hop your way back to Sydney along the beautiful south coast.

Australia knows how to throw a party, so if you are looking for a holiday filled with chaos and good times, there are many festivals and celebrations held annually that will excite and entertain you. From Melbourne Cup - the horse race that stops a nation - to Splendour in the Grass - a music festival that attracts some the world's most popular acts. There is also the Grand Prix, world-class surfing competitions, tennis grand slams, food and wine festivals and everything in between. Whatever your requirements, Australia offers an event or festival that will blow you away and make it a holiday you will never forget.
