From The Charm Of Uluru To The Magic Of The Barrier Reef, There Are Endless Ways To Explore Australia On Your Next Holiday...
100 Ways To Holiday Here 
Last week we shared all of the travel inspirations we've found recently, including books, movies, food and more. Thank you so much for your input of what's been inspiring you.
One great suggestion we haven't shared with you yet, is the Australian Traveller magazine. They've just released a brand new issue detailing 100 unique ways to explore Australia.
We're excited by this issue inspiring us to plan some home exploration... Luckily, we live in the perfect place for it! With some of the globe's most sought after destinations, breathtaking landscapes and glamorous cityscapes, Australia has a LOT to offer.

As much as these ideas are to inspire, we can book all of these holidays for you when you are ready. Please remember many Australian companies are offering flexible booking conditions which is great news, so we can start planning now. Have a read, get excited, and chat to us about your next Aussie escape.

Click on the link to access the magazine, and read on below as we've taken a few special experiences from the issue that we can't wait to try.
Sail & Stay At The Ningaloo Reef
The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef, sitting off the Western Australia coast at Exmouth, is one of Australia's most compelling aquatic propositions. The world's largest fringing coral reef extends 260 kilometres, is visible from space and filled with a staggering rollcall of sea life: roughly 738 species of reef fish, more than 1000 species of marine algae, some 600 species of crustaceans, and 655 species of mollusc. 

You can see all of this (and turtles and manta rays) up close on one of the various eco-tours that head out from Exmouth -Sail Ningaloo offers multi-day sailing adventures that allow for plenty of time on and under the water. And, once you're back on dry land, you can get another angle on the sprawling beauty of the reef and its surrounds from the deck in Sal Salis, the luxury safari camp in Cape Range National Park
Plug Into Uluru
Whether it's your first time or your fifth time, there has never been a better time to visit Uluru than now. Last year's closing of the controversial climb certainly marked a new chapter in the sandstone monolith's age-old history and with it cast light on the myriad ways you can actually experience Australia's spiritual heart.
There's Bruce Munro's mesmeric Field of Light, now extended indefinitely, which you can experience twinkling away at sunrise or see come to life at sunset and paired with an outback dining experience. There are a range of Indigenous experiences to indulge in whilst you are in the area.
There's also sky diving, camels, Segways and Harley Davidson's. There's Opera Australia and exclusive dune-top dinner, Tali Wiru. There's luxury wilderness camp Longitude 131 with privileged views of Uluru afforded from the supreme comfort of your bed.
And of course there's the opportunity to simply pitch a tent and plug right into the living cultural landscape of the Red Centre (Ayers Rock Campground is located 15 kilometres from Uluru, close to the boundaries of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park). And it might just prove life-changing. 
See Outback Queensland By Vintage Train
While iconic outback rail journeys The Ghan and the Indian Pacific are both bucket-list items for most Aussies, consider adding the Savannahlander - a 1960s 'silver bullet railmotor that rattles once a week through the Queensland outback - to that list. This colourful rail journey departs Cairns every Wednesday for the wet tropics area of the Kuranda Range and on through the Savannah country until it reaches the old gold-mining town of Forsayth.

With different permutations of the journey available, ranging from day trips to overnighters and longer, guests can mix and match to create their own custom experience.  Choose a four-day rail journey to get the most out of this unique experience, adding on side trips to Cobbold Gorge, the Undara Lava Tunnels and Chillagoe-Mungana Caves, nicknamed 'the reef of the outback' for the fascinating fossilised remains of an ancient coral reef.
Stop And Smell The Wildflowers
While the outback has a reputation for being a harsh and unforgiving landscape, the fact is that large swathes of its red and golden sands are carpeted in colour come spring, when tens of thousands of Australian wildflowers burst into life. Western Australia, the epicentre of native flora, boasts some 12,000 species of wildflowers, 60 per cent of which are found nowhere else on Earth. Head to Wildflower Country, a few hours' drive north of Perth, to see the living kaleidoscope in its full glory. This magnificent colour show is also visible in the Golden Outback (including Wave Rock) and Stirling Range National Park, or Bay of Isles in Esperance.
