Do I need a visa to enter Australia?
Unless you are an Australian citizen, you will need a valid Australian visa to enter the country. New Zealand passport holders can apply for a visa upon arrival in the country. All other passport holders, regardless of age, must apply for a visa before leaving home. You can apply for a range of Australian visa types, including tourist visas and working holiday visas, at your nearest Australian Embassy or Consulate. You can also apply for certain types of visas on the Australian Department of Home Affairs website

For other visas, you can apply online by creating an ImmiAccount and completing the application process. Be sure to submit your application well in advance of your travel date to allow enough time for processing. You may be asked to provide further supporting information. You will be notified in writing if your tourist visa is approved and it will be digitally linked to your passport.

Splash into summer in Sydney
Summer in Sydney is a great time to explore the beautiful coast dotted with family-friendly swimming beaches, great surf and surrounding national parks. Learn to surf at Bondi Beach, take a guided hike to the Instagram-famous Figure 8 Pools in the Royal National Park, or skip it all and relax on a rooftop bar with a glass of Frosé (frozen rosé).
It’s also a great time of year to get out of the city and head for charming coastal towns, picturesque wine country or the cooler altitudes of the Blue Mountain
