Winters are the best times to visit Australia. From the snow-clad south to the tropical north, Australia has one of the most beautiful winter itineraries in the world. Car rental is perfect her as there are road trips for you to take in the snow, skiing pursuits, letting your hair down in cosmopolitan Sydney, and participating in the wild festivals of the North. Go driving around, see as many of the sights as you can. Car hire is easy to arrange and totally affordable for all budgets.
Australia offers you some of the most scenic driveways you’ll ever get to see, with the landscapes getting even more vibrant as winter approaches. From Alice’s Springs to the Uluru (Ayers’ Rock), you have many attractions in the continent covered on your road trips. We urge you trying out the Stuart’s Highway or the Great Ocean Road for splendid drives through the magnificent continent.
Australia might not be the Mecca of skiing, but you do have great slopes and runs in Mt. Buller, where there are 400 meter drops and more than 3000 hectares of snow clad skiing arenas. Moreover, there trekking and hiking expeditions in the snow too, and this would make the mountains even more glamorous than they already are.
True, the Yarra Sanctuary might be on your travel list to get up, close, and personal with the hordes of kangaroos that live there. But, you certainly have an even bigger reason to visit the place: the 80 wineries that throng the region, each producing their own range of organic and exotic wine in the best flavours possible. You might even want to visit the wineries that are available at Healesville Sanctuary.
Get in your hire car and head to Sydney. Sydney is one of the best places to visit in Australia and with plenty to see and do you can have a great sightseeing time here. What’s more, the winter in Sydney grants you a great chance to go whale watching in the ocean, when many whales are passing by as they are en route to migrating up north. You can also go skiing, bush walking in the National Park, and have a lovely time in the snazzy night clubs of Sydney. Shopping in Sydney is a great experience and there are plenty of photo opportunities down by the harbour with the amazing architectural delight of Sydney Opera House as the background.
Australia is certainly one of the best places to visit during the winters. You would definitely have a marvellous holiday there, but plan well beforehand. As there is so much ground to cover you may find you need more than one holiday to fit it all in even with car rental to help you get around.
