Australia


Australia is the world's largest island, with several major cities located on its perimeter. Sydney is perhaps the most well known. Its scalloped opera house is a national landmark. The city of Perth, on the western coast, has a comfortable, if wet, Mediterranean climate, and hosts stunning beachfronts. But the bulk of the Australian landmass, the Outback, is empty of almost all human activity. It can be a rugged trek, but it's like no other journey in the world, with chances to encounter native Australian wildlife such as the dingo and the kangaroo.
