Travel around and experience Australia from your sofa with the tourist board's first-ever live programme of virtual events, streaming from Friday 15 May to Sunday 17 May. Quick, put the beers in the fridge!
Think Chris Hemsworth-inspired morning workouts in Byron Bay, croc encounters with the Outback Wrangler Matt Wright, delve into Australia’s wine country, and trek around natural wonders.
Take a break on Phillip Island and enjoy front-row seats at the Penguin Parade; be captivated by the underwater world on a virtual tour of the Great Barrier Reef; learn the best-kept secrets behind the ultimate Aussie BBQ from chef Hayden Quinn, and soak up the serenity of an Uluru sunset – all from the comfort of your armchair.
The weekend-long “Live from Aus” hopes to intrigue and inspire future travelers while they stay home, says Tourism Australia managing director Phillipa Harrison. “The truth is nobody truly knows exactly what travel to Australia will look like in the future. Or to any other country for that matter,” she says.
