Australia is a nation in its own right. It is also technically a continent, with large differences between regions. It has a reputation of being a land of leisure, with sun, sea and an enviable 'Crocodile Dundee' outdoor lifestyle, but this is a very narrow conception of the continent. The reality is that most people work all day and then spend the weekend running around trying to pack life into 2 days. Only the homeless and tourists on Australia vacations have time to sit around on the beach or relax in Australia vacation rentals watching sports on TV. The region receives thousands of tourists every year and has developed a huge lodging infrastructure with several accommodation options such as Australia vacation rentals, hotels and vacation homes in Australia.
Good places to visit from Australia vacations are big cities such as Canberra, Darwin, Adelaide and Perth, that all have interesting sights and a good cultural atmosphere. Of course, Australia is surrounded by the sea so good swimming and surfing beaches are common rules. Generally, these beaches will be full of tourists, especially during the week. Therefore, fun can be made up of watching people who haven't heard of sunscreen turn into lobsters, or getting trapped in the surf. North of Brisbane, is the Sunshine Coast. One of the many stretches of coast where you can find excellent beaches is the better known Gold Coast, south of Brisbane. The Gold Coast is famous for being home to the Australian equivalent of trailer park residents and teenagers who can't afford somewhere better. Don't forget the smaller, historically interesting Alice Springs, or William Creek (the most isolated town in Australia) that lead directly to the famous Ayers Rock.
