Australia to California Travel Guide

California is one of the most popular states in the USA, reeling in over 260 million visitors each year.
Most people head for the Pacific coast where curving highways sew together big cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Santa Monica. And the national parks are basically one big travel bucket list – from wild Yosemite National Park to the desert-dry Joshua Tree National Park.
But how to get there? Direct flights jet off from a couple of Australian cities. You’re looking at around 16 hours’ flight time.

California isn’t nicknamed the Golden State for nothing. This south-west corner of the USA ticks off sandy beaches, heat-struck deserts, sulphuric national parks – plus some of the most famous cities on the planet.
