Australia, the land of the wild, romance and adventure
Australia welcomes us to the land of the wild. This is the sixth largest country in the world and is an amazing island surrounded by ocean, where most of its population has settled in the wonderful coastal cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and the capital Canberra. A nation that vibrates in all aspects and that brings together a geographical variety for all the tastes of the world; from extensive lands where nature and green abound, to the pristine oceanic waters that reflect the sun, all of this joins with the fact that it also proposes multiculturalism, an intense nightlife and even a unique gastronomy accompanied by the wines of the region.
Because of the vastness of its territory, in addition to its islands, it is said that it takes a minimum of three months to get to know Australia in depth, that is, to familiarize itself with its vibrant culture and travel its majestic geography. On the east side is all green: a thin line of mountains and forest that shelter the coastal cities and the west, two thirds of the territory in a large spot of a red desert.
In fact, there is no perfect period to visit the country. The high season for tourism is the austral summer, that is, from December to February, when the weather is usually very warm. The lower part, is during the boreal summer (June to August), the southern part of the island usually has a cold and rainy weather, while in the north is soft, sunny and with low humidity. In Victoria and New South Wales the ski resorts are opened. The best season can be amidst the year (autumn and spring), because it is characterized by its temperate climate, clear skies and fewer tourists.
