Most Australia tours start or end in the capital city of Sydney. Sights you will not want to miss here include the famous Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour with its pretty bridge. The Taronga Zoo is one place where you can get up close and personal with the native animals of Australia, such as kangaroos, koalas, wombats and dingoes. And Sydney has a myriad of neighborhoods with unusual boutiques for souvenir shopping and outdoor cafes for people watching.
Australia tours usually make overnight visits to the area around Alice Springs, so visitors can get a taste of the Outback. While this is a remote region in the center of the country, there are farmers and ranchers who make their homes out here. Also, this is where you find Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock. It is a sacred place for the Aboriginals, who were the first inhabitants of Australia.
Finally, Cairns is another important stop on any Australia vacation. That is because this northeast coastal town is the gateway to the awesome Great Barrier Reef.
