Nothing says Australia quite like our Outback. Australia has some of the world's most distinctive and diverse natural environments, with unique wildlife and spectacular landscapes, including many national parks and World Heritage Areas.
Australia is one of the leading providers of nature-based tourism, with a diverse range of ecosystems, landscapes and wildlife, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. The country plays host to thousands of national parks and conservation reserves in Australia, and twenty UNESCO World Heritage listed attractions, including the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru.
Tourism Australia's own research consistently shows Australia as holding the number one global ranking for its world-class nature experiences; outperforming the likes of Switzerland, New Zealand and Canada.
Be inspired by the open spaces that seem to stretch on forever and tell the story of the exploration and development of our wide brown land. Investors can find a little bit of the outback in every state of Australia, and while the regions are remote, they can be easily accessed from most major cities and towns.

Beaches and Islands
Most of Australia's population lives close to the coastline and the beach has long occupied a special place in the Australian identity. The Australian coastline is where three of the world's great oceans meet: the Pacific, Indian and Southern oceans. The beach is also a place where people from all over the world meet, mix and live.Add to my sales tool kit
