Removals to Australia: Where do Australians go for their Holidays?

If you are organising removals to Australia, you will most likely settle within easy reach of a beach but whatever your reasons for moving to the country you will want to go on vacation at one point.

In the UK, it is easy to take a long or short city breaks as countries such as France, Italy and Switzerland are just a short flight away. However, unfortunately this is not the case in Australia where you may well find that a long-haul flight puts Europe outside your reach – unless you are lucky enough to get a lengthy holiday period to recover from the jet-lag.

So, the big question is, where do the Australians go on holiday? Do most Australians holiday on the continent, or are they more likely to jet off to places such as Indonesia or Singapore for their vacations?

If you require removals to Australia, read on to discover some of the top holiday destinations for Australians.

Top Holiday Destinations for Australians

While most Australians holiday within their own country, there is still a large number who jet off abroad. Statistics show some 45 per cent of Australians seek overseas destinations for a vacation – and the UK is among the top four places to visit outside Australia, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (2001)

If you require removals to Australia to settle in the county, here we take a brief look at some great destinations to visit in Australia, and also overseas. This is by no means a comprehensive list as there are lots of fantastic holiday destinations, but this is our pick of some of the best.
