Your dream holiday itinerary for visiting Eastern Canada

Sponsored by Flight Centre

Canada is becoming the destination of choice among Australian travellers. Aussie’s love Canadians, and they love us back. It’s an affinity that has seen an increase in the number of Australian holidaymakers enjoying Canada’s natural wonders and cosmopolitan lifestyle in recent years—and you could join them.

Planning your Canadian adventure

Heading off from Sydney Airport, you’ll journey to Toronto, the capital of Ontario and Canada’s largest city. You might like to take a guided tour, to help you make the most of what the city has to offer. Toronto has thousands of award-winning restaurants, not to mention the great St Lawrence Market and the Toronto Zoo.

Next, you may want to ride the gondolas in Mont Tremblant, and see black bears in their native habitat at Parc Omega. You can see how real Canadian maple syrup is made, and of course sample some local delights.

The Canadian capital Ottawa is a must-visit, with attractions like the Canadian Museum of History and the Canadian Museum of Civilisation. Fair warning though, It’s the seventh-coldest capital city in the world, so rug up!

You’ll also want to visit the beautiful islands off the coast, to experience the small-town hospitality and feast on local produce, not to mention take in the beautiful scenery and unique wildlife.

Making friends in Montreal

The largest city in Canada's Québec province, Montreal is full of popular tourist sites. Explore the Notre Dame Basilica and the Underground City, where interconnected hotels, shopping precincts and tower blocks combine to create the perfect escape from cold Canadian winters. Don’t forget to pack your French dictionary.

Of course, no Canadian adventure would be complete without a visit to the spectacular Niagara Falls. Imagine enjoying a delicious meal overlooking the site, after spending the day scoping out the beauty from above in a helicopter. Then, you could end the day at the Illumination Tower, with the opportunity to create your very own amazing light display on this world-famous waterfall—an experience you’ll never forget.
