The Commonwealth of Australia is the largest island on earth and the smallest continent. It also boasts to being one of the most progressive nations in the world with one of the oldest civilizations. It is made up of a variety of landscapes, including tropical rain forests, the deserts of the outback, snow-capped mountains, rolling expanses of pastoral land and magnificent beaches. That's why every year millions of tourists from all over the world decide to spend their holidays in Australia. Many of them surf the web looking for information about places to visit, lodgings and accommodations, flights and tours. (http://www.ratestogo.

com) is a website that wants to answer all these questions. Web surfers can find a selection of luxury hotels throughout Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns and Adelaide. Sydney Many visitors would be surprised to find that Sydney, it's largest city, is not the capital of Australia. Built on the shores of the stunning Port Jackson, Sydney is one of the world's landmark cities, and is also Australia's oldest city.

Sydney, the nation's premier metropolis, mixes a flare for groundbreaking architecture, a love of the arts and high-powered commerce. The must-do's on every visitors list include the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Centrepoint Tower, The Rocks, Bondi Beach, Olympic Park Homebush better known as the site of the 2000 Olympic Games, and Darling Harbour. Melbourne Multicultural Melbourne is the capital of Victoria and the second largest city in Australia behind Sydney. Located on the Yarra River at the mouth of Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne is a city of style, of Victorian architecture, of trams, of fashion, food, theatres, art galleries, and leafy gardens.

It is a sport-mad city, which hosts events such as the Australian Tennis Open, the Australian Formula One Grand Prix, and the premier horse race, the race that 'stops a nation,' the Melbourne Cup. The "Great Ocean Road" is a popular drive for tourists and locals alike, acknowledged as one of the world's most spectacular coastal drives, visitors can view the spectacular site of the Twelve Apostles. Cairns Cairns is the Far North's tourist capital and an ideal place from which to explore northern Queensland with trips to the superb Great Barrier Reef, Green and Fitzroy Islands, the Atherton Table land, the market town of Kuranda and miles of superb beaches that stretch all the way to Port Douglas. Adelaide Built on the banks of the Torrens River, Adelaide is the capital of South Australia. Adelaide is an elegant city noted for its festivals and concerts, filled with galleries, parks, historic churches and buildings, and home to one of the world's most dazzling Festival of Arts. It is the ideal place to relax and enjoy some of the finer things of life, including gourmet restaurants and wines from the nearby Barossa and Clare Valleys and from the Coonawarra area. http://www. Central Australia, also known as the Outback, is the heart of Australia. There's the famous Ayers Rock/Uluru, Kings Canyon, and the East and West MacDonnell Ranges. There are also other parks and reserves with plentiful bird and animal life.

Not too far from these natural attractions is the pioneering town of Alice Springs, built on the banks of the frequently dry Todd River. .
