The Australian Capital Territory is a great place for an Australian luxury vacation. Full of history and beautiful sights to see, the ACT is not quite as famous as larger destinations such as Sydney, but it holds a unique and special charm that holidaymakers often have found endearing and special in its own right.

Consider the white sands of the beaches in Jervis Bay. As seaside experiences go, it is among the most iconic in the Australian repertoire. Beautiful shoreline, the ability to see or even swim with dolphins, crystal-clear waters for miles around and beachside food resorts all conspire to make it an indulgent, relaxing experience that is sure to rate among the best.

The city of Canberra is a particularly worthwhile stop as vacationers explore the ACT. Full of first-class accommodations, spectacular restaurants and plenty of culture to explore, the city is an excellent place to base an ACT vacation from. In particular, visitors are encouraged to visit the numerous museums and the Old Parliament house, where the history of the Australian government can be explored before a delicious lunchtime visit to a nearby café.

The countryside around Canberra and the rest of the ACT is, of course, worth a visit as well. Luxury vehicles can be had for ease of exploration, making the experience pass in complete comfort and control. Public parks and still more venues to enjoy the local cuisine are abundant, giving many choices in relaxation and indulgence for a visitor to the territory. The Hilltops district is especially recommended, being the ACT’s premier wine country; guests can sample the newest vintages to be bottled, getting a taste of the many reasons that Australia is becoming one of the world’s most respected winemaking power houses. There truly is something for everyone in the environs of the ACT.
