There’s a fair bit of ground to cover Down Under. Whether you’re a beach bum looking to take in the country’s best surfing hotspots, an amateur thrillseeker on the hunt for out-there adventures, or simply want to experience the very best of what Oz has to offer, itineraries in Australia can be whatever you want them to be. But where do you start with a country of 8 trillion sq miles, full of wild terracotta deserts, ever-changing cities and some of the world’s most delicate coral reefs? Join our panel of Australia experts as we get to grips with making the most of this land of superlatives — from when to go, what to see and how best to get around. Just come with plenty of questions.
Don’t rush off, join our after-work get togethers.
