By this point most of us are dreaming of summer and starting our swimsuit diets. You can wait for summer or go and find the sea and sand with Cunard Cruises. Create memories with your loved one by cruising off to the exotic and rich culture that is Australia.
The island’s isolation and self-reliance have given it the enduring identity it has today, and its stunning landscapes and diversified wildlife have given it its singularity, making this island a prime destination for tourists.
You could dine under the stars at the Sounds of Silence, or eat bush-tucker camp-oven cooked delicacies in the Northern Territory. You could have a world-class clandestine meal in
any of the warehouses and secret underground restaurants in the laneways of Melbourne, or you could feast admiring the Yarra Valley vineyards of Victoria. The possibilities are endless and you are certainly spoilt for choice in terms of culinary prospects.
On your sashays through ancient forests, alpine meadows, caves, waterfalls and button grass plains in the Flinders Ranges in the south, Mount William National Park in north-eastern
Tasmania, or Overlack Track in the Cradle Mountain, you will meet like-minded tourists from all over the world and friendly locals, welcoming you to their warm and comfortable
huts to unwind.
You could spend a few days visiting admission-free museums like Canberra’s National Museum, with its engaging exhibitions in honour of Australian culture, the Australian War Memorial, which boast military relics and offers a moving experience of Australian battles and hardships, or you could admire their exceptional boutique galleries and national monuments.
At the end of your journeys, unwind and unravel one of Australia’s most renowned cafés, such as the Dukes of Melbourne, Alen’s Espresso of Brisbane, the Workshop Espresso in Sidney, or the Velvet Espresso in Perth.
There is nothing out there that offers you beach, trekking, undersea water exploration, dining, shopping and more, all rolled up into one exciting, unforgettable package, like
this vast expanse of pure, stately, resplendent magnificence that is Australia.
