Coastal Australia: The Human Perspective

Let's face it; despite Australia's inland allures, its stunning wineries and endless rolling landscapes; it's pretty hard to stray too far from the country's iconic coastlines. So azure are the waters, colourful the reefs and vibrant the beach-side towns and cities, if you make the trip down under, even we (the travel company known for going off the well-worn trails) suggest not spending too much time away from the water. And you needn't take our word for it, because we've been busy chatting to some of the country's most inspiring locals as part of our new Stories in the Sand campaign, in order to give you an insider's perspective. A campaign in which we're focussing on Australia's coastlines, and the characters that make it so special, you'll find that these personalities have got some invaluable tips on how best to enjoy Australia. Some inspiring ideas on how to write your own 'stories in the sand'. So, from wilderness explorer to remote eco-resort owner; welcome to the human perspective...
