For anyone living in Singapore looking to explore the Australian countryside, we’ve found some great deals in May with Qantas that let you do so.
A week in the New England area of New South Wales
Armidale is a town of 25,000 located a long drive north of Sydney (don’t worry, Qantas will fly you there).
Nature is the highlight of this area. Armidale and its surrounds are home to many parks, gardens, hikes, and opportunities to connect with nature.
