Capital city: Canberra.
Currency: Australian Dollar (in Aus$5, Aus$10, Aus$20, Aus$50, Aus$100 notes).
Cuisine: Traditional Australian food has its roots in the English ‘meat and two veg’ realm. You’ll also find contemporary cuisine, taking inspiration from all over the globe.
Tipping etiquette: There are no mandatory service charges in Australia. You might spot a Goods and Services tax on your receipt – it’s an inclusive part of any bill.
Saying hello: Simply say “hello” or – if you’re in the country – use the classic “g’day”.
WHEN TO GO
Australia’s vast size means that the climate is varied, with tropical weather in the north and a Mediterranean feel in the south. Summers stretch from December to February when the evenings linger and the barbecues get fired up. But winters are balmy and warm too, and throughout the year you’ll find lots of festivals to enjoy, celebrating everything from food and sport to the booming arts scene.
Australia might be known for New World wines, but it’s also home to some of the world’s oldest grape varieties. Sample award-winning reds and world-famous chardonnays on a rural vineyard tour or in trendy city wine bars.
