Holidays to Australia

From the dry, rugged landscapes of the interior to the lush tropical beaches of the east coast, Australia is a land of startling contrasts. The land down under is as famous for the laid back attitude and hospitality of its people, as it is for its clean, sophisticated cities and wilderness areas with startling scenic beauty.

Thomas Cook Tours’ holidays to Australia offer travellers the opportunity to sample the country’s highlights or to embark on more comprehensive tours that range from the south to the north coast. Whichever option you choose, you’ll have the opportunity to explore some of the major attractions that make Australia unique.


Thomas Cook Tours Australia holidays are geared towards travellers who have two weeks or more at their disposal to explore the country.

The eastern seaboard of Australia is a popular destination. Here you can visit the cosmopolitan but laid back cities of Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. Put a cruise of Sydney Harbour on your checklist when visiting this region, and take advantage of the guided day tours offered in all these cities.

Some of Australia’s key attractions are also found along its coastline and in its wilderness areas. Watching the sun set over Ayer’s Rock is a highlight of any trip to Australia, as is a journey to snorkel or scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef. The adventurous can explore the tropical forests of Kuranda from a unique vantage point by taking a trip on the Skyrail gondola cableway.
