Canada's Top Cities

Some would describe Australia as 'Canada with better weather' - and they'd be right. Canada and Australia are very similar. Relatively young democracies (by historical standards), multicultural, large geographic land masses with proportionally few inhabitants, resource rich, etc. Given these commonalities it's not surprising so many Australians journey to Canada's cities and national parks for a holiday - be it in summer or winter.

Halifax - Atlantic Gateway to Canada

Steeped in history, Halifax is a modern port city and the capital of the Canadian Province of Nova Scotia. Its international airport is one of the primary points of entry for tourists wishing to explore Canada's picturesque Atlantic Provinces.

Ski Resorts Near Montreal

With the exception of Mont Tremblant which is quite a large mountain, Montreal's ski resorts are similar to Australia's top end resorts - smaller than Thredbo but with plenty of runs and heaps of snow. So if you find yourself in Montreal during the winter, make a trip to the snow. A word of caution though... be prepared for the cold!

Quebec City - Where Old Europe meets North America

Quebec City is the aptly named capital of the province of Quebec, Canada's only french speaking province. A much smaller city than Montreal, it retains its old world European charm and distinct French character while providing travellers with all the modern amenities they could wish for.
