Tailor-made Australia Holidays

Uluru in Australia

Once a far-off land Down Under, the sunburnt shores of Australia have never been more accessible to visit from the UK. And while it’s now possible to fly there direct, Australia is seemingly a world away with its weird and wonderful animals, endless golden beaches and ancient indigenous history. From the tropical top of Cape Tribulation all the way down to the rugged cliffs of Tasmania, we live, breathe and love Australia holidays. It's in our heritage; in 1982 we opened our first Flight Centre store in Sydney. Today we’re proud to be the world’s number one for travel to Australia. So whether you’re looking to visit relatives, drive along the coastline, experience the Outback or a bit of everything, you’re in the best possible hands with Flight Centre.

Where to Go in Australia

Most holidays in Australia will begin in its major cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. From sprawling harbours to meandering laneways and golden beaches, these cities promise a unique Aussie experience. Some of Australia’s most famous attractions however lie away from the cities; there’s the Great Barrier Reef in Tropical North Queensland, Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia’s Red Centre, and the wildlife-haven of Kangaroo Island, located off the coast of South Australia. Talk to our Experts about adding all of these into one easy itinerary.

There’s more than one way to holiday in Australia. At Flight Centre, we want you to choose your own adventure based on your interests.
