HOW TO GET AROUND AUSTRALIA
As you’d expect from a country that encompasses a whole continent there’s a wonderful choice of ways to enjoy holidays in Australia with Trailfinders.
Excellent roads and scenic drives mean Australia is beautifully suited to fly drive holidays either by car or motorhome. If you’d rather not drive how about joining a sociable escorted coach tour up the dazzling east coast from Sydney to the Great Barrier Reef, or a fun small group tour in the Red Centre?
Two iconic rail journeys bisect Australia - the Ghan and the Indian Pacific - and both would make a fabulous centrepiece to an amazing holiday. There are also some wonderful cruise options from grand circumnavigations of the continent to smaller expedition style voyages off the coasts of Queensland and Western Australia.
