Sydney, one of the most populated cities in Australia and the capital of New South Wales, is a fun place to visit for a lighthearted holiday. Like most modern cities, it has everything you’ll need to relax, let loose, and have a lot of fun on your well-earned holiday.

Melbourne is a city of art and artists. The vibrant spray-painted walls and stenciled alleys like the Hosier Lane make it look something out of a technicolor film. The street art in Melbourne is so widespread that there is a Melbourne Street Art Tour which you can book to take a closer look at the impromptu galleries popping up around the city.
