You will never discover Australia in 1 holiday. This country, just call it a continent, is huge and very versatile. While in the south of Australia the trees are full of koalas, the saltwater crocodiles swim in the rivers of the Northern Territory. The contrast between bustling cities such as Sydney and the tranquility of national parks such as Kakadu National Park is what makes Australia so special.
Everywhere in Australia, you will find national parks, where you can spot the most beautiful nature and wildlife. With 830 bird species and various reptiles, amphibians and mammals, you don’t have to worry about spotting wildlife during your tour of Australia. Australia is characterized by its different climates in which the sun plays a major role. But extreme weather is also a regular occurrence.
