Australia's regional cities and towns

Add

Learn about Australia's regional cities and towns, which are rich in natural beauty and are the gateway to many of Australia's unmissable experiences.

Visit Cairns, on the doorstep of two World Heritage-listed sites: the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. Further south is the grand sugar city of Bundaberg, where you can snorkel the southern end of the Great Barrier reef and watch turtles nest and hatch on Mon Repos beach. Discover the Gold Coast, with its surf beaches and World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests, as well as buzzy restaurants, theme parks and shopping strips. Head to the Red Centre and visit Alice Springs, where you can immerse yourself in Australia’s ancient history and Aboriginal art. Take a trek through the West MacDonnell Ranges and day trip to Uluru, the red rock heart of the country. Ride a camel along beautiful Cable Beach in Broome, the holiday hub in the north-west corner of the Kimberley. On the southern coast of Western Australia is Albany, which boasts sugar-white beaches, world-class hiking and the opportunity to spot migrating whales along its rugged coastline.
