New Orleans ©
Known for its Creole cuisine, rich musical tradition, and nearby swamps and plantations, New Orleans is one of the nation's oldest cities.
Venture out of the city with trips to The Cajun Village (in Sorrento), Houmas House Plantation and Gardens (in Darrow) and Whitney Plantation (in Wallace). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Garden District, admire the landmark architecture of St. Louis Cathedral, stroll through New Orleans City Park, and take a stroll through Royal Street.

To see maps, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our New Orleans online sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, Gulfport Biloxi International Airport and Lafayette Regional Airport. In December in New Orleans, expect temperatures between 16°C during the day and 16°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
