Australia is a fascinating country to visit. We first visited it in 1993 when we were on our round-the-world trip. We stayed in Perth (and toured around Western Australia, as far south as Esperance, as far north as Geraldton and as far east as Kalgoorlie. We then visited Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and bussed it from Brisbane to Cairns, stopping at several places along the way. One of the highlights of our trip was doing a 3 day sailing trip round the Whitsunday Islands from Airlie Beach.

We returned to Australia in June 1997 but this time just visited Sydney and Cairns. A further visit in December 2003/January 2004 saw us again return to Brisbane, Byron Bay, Sydney and the Hunter Valley area. We were lucky to experience a fantastic New Year's Eve at Sydney Harbour with the most amazing fireworks display. We also visited Adelaide and the Barossa Valley for the first time on this trip, and it's an area we really enjoyed and would like to return to.

We'll be writing about our experiences throughout Australia soon, but for now read about Sydney and the Hunter Valley here and some photos and brief information about Adelaide here.
