Visit Cairns, at the gateway to two World Heritage 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 exuberant Gold Coast, which has white beaches and World Heritage rainforests, as well as restaurants, theme parks and shopping strips.

In Alice Springs immerse yourself in Aboriginal art. Take a trek through the West MacDonnell Ranges and day trip to Uluru in Australia's Red Centre. Ride a camel along beautiful Cable Beach in Broome, the remote pearling port in the north-west corner of the Kimberley. On the southern coast of Western Australia is Albany, you can fish and dive, hike through national parks and spot whales off this majestically rugged coastline.

Slow down and savour the good life in Orange, which sits at the foot of an extinct volcano, four hour's drive west of Sydney. Visit the cool-climate wineries and acclaimed restaurants. Sample the region's delectable food and wine at the Orange F.O.O.D Week in April or later in the year at the Orange Winefest in October. Wander through the Orange Botanical Gardens, walk the City Heritage Trail or enjoy the view over the city from Mt Canobolas, an ancient volcanic peak.
