Phillipa Harrison, Managing Director Tourism Australia spoke to us on how to best explore Australia.
“As many of us think about our plans to Holiday Here This Year, and into next year, my domestic holiday tip for everyone is to consider approaching it like you would an overseas trip and holiday like an international visitor would here in Australia.
Think about what Australian experiences are on your ‘one day’ list and make them happen. Treat your next domestic holiday like an overseas holiday – travel a bit further, stay a little longer and spend a bit more.
There is so much waiting to be explored, including one of the seven natural wonders of the world in the Great Barrier Reef and the spiritual heart of Australia, Uluru.
There are hidden gems such as Lord Howe Island and the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. And there are experiences on offer you will never forget, like diving with whale sharks on Western Australia’s Coral Coast.
