For relaxing and interesting vacations Australia is the place for you!

80,000 crocodiles, 50 million kangaroos and 110 million sheep can't be wrong!

Seriously, all the info you need for a wonderful vacation in Australia is linked from the one hub. Australian Vacation Guide.

Many vacationers realize that knowing about a country especially one as diverse as Australia is the key to enjoying their vacation more thoroughly.

Peter and Ernest at VacationAustralia are seasoned travellers who  live here, and know the ropes including the outback country, the states, Territories and cities.

The beauty of Australia is renowned world-wide, but how much have you seen of this vast, ancient and mysterious land?

Have you been to the Australia Zoo and crocodile farm in Queensland set up by the crocodile hunter Steve Irwin's dad, Bob?

Unfortunately Steve was killed by a stingray in a bizzare accident .The Zoo is now run by his widow Terri and their two children , Bindi and Bob.

Been to the Botanical Gardens in Melbourne or travelled the city undergound loop? Or climbed around the cliffs in Sydney harbor to one of the secret beaches?

Have you visited the pristine wilderness in Tasmania, or been to Hobart, Perth or Darwin yet?

As locals we know these cities, all their hidden gems and the best places to visit while on vacation there.

More importantly you will learn about Australia from fair dinkum Australians who have travelled to or lived in vacation places all over Australia, and understand their different accents and local customs and weather.

These  places are best described by locals with local knowledge, as that way you will get a "feel" for the places..

For you, the vacationer this means having the best fun choices from the widest range of locations and options to suit your chosen vacation in Australia.
