The Australian coastline covers some 25,000 kilometres. It is surrounded by many thousands of small fringing islands and numerous larger ones, all playing an important role in defining the character of the country. This itinerary lends itself to discovering pristine, remote and endless beaches and horizons on a journey by air, land or sea. Snorkel or dive on coral reefs, explore rugged coastal areas and delight in dramatic coastal cliffs and the enormity of the seas.
