In this article, there wasn’t even space, and the wilderness of Kangaroo Island, thick Daintree rainforest, Margaret River wineries, and Gold Coast beaches were some of Australia’s biggest tourist draw-cards. That means that the 10 places on this list of the best destinations in Australia are seriously fine. We swear. We pledge.
The biggest city in Australia is most of the foreign gates into the world, with a splendid welcome mat from the sparkling Sydney Harbour. There is no doubt that the main draw of the harbor is its beautiful Beverly, like Bondi and Coogee, in the eastern suburbs and Manly in the northern beaches, but there is no doubt that Sydney has its two iconic landmarks, the Port Bridge and the Opera House.
The second-largest city in the country does not match the Sand or sunshine of Sydney, but Melbourne offers coffee, music, food, and sports. Victoria is the most cosmopolitan city in Australia with moody lanes, cafés, and arty boutiques, progressive dining, and a sports arena. Australia’s most cosmopolitan city is the Victorian capital. A lot of sport and plenty.
Great Barrier Reef
See as long as you can. The climate change blackens the color of the world’s largest coral reef system, extending 2 300 kilometers across the sunny coast of Queensland, but several dive sites still remain, where warm water can be used to snorkel bright coral and incredible marine life. Visit the luxurious Daintree Rainforest and the remarkable Fraser Island when in Northern Queensland, as you are.
The majesty of ‘The Rock’ cannot be expressed in terms, a hulking monolith that rises from Central Australia’s ochre-red dust. Uluru has enormous significance for Australia’s indigenous peoples and is one of the landmarks most emblematic of the country – take it from above in the helicopter or hot air ball or with a meal in the darkness at the foot, at the back of a horse or Harley Davidson.
“The City of Churches” really needs a new surname that represents more specifically Adelaide’s diverse and lively position in recent years. The perfect place to try the South Australian reds of international fashion may be ‘the year-round festivals city’, or ‘the city of charismatic bars, cafes, and restaurants which offer Melbourne a chance to buy money’ or maybe ‘the city with dozens of wine regions at its doorstep.’
Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road is easily Australia’s most picturesque tourist route and perhaps one of the most picturesque routes trips on the Planet, spanning 243 kilometers of the rough Victorian coastline west of Melbourne. The furious calcareous stacks of the twelve apostles, the poster-card-perfect Loch Ard Gorge, and the charming coastal villages, like Port Fairy, will pause for wonder.
The most Eastern part of Australia is the hottest destinations, like the Hippie Haven (Hyper-Head), the surf mecca, celebrity hideaway, a mandatory stop on the well-packed trail backpacker up the East Coast. To stop the multitudes and costs of Byron Bay itself, flee into the pristine hinterland, paradise in Nimbin’s alternate way of life, or take a wave along the road in Yamba.
Tasmania’s capital – a leafy island State just south of Australia’s mainland – has always been an enjoyable place to visit, but for one reason and only one reason Hobart has become a must-see destination: MONA. Opened in a wine company in 2011, the Museum of Old and Modern Art, thanks to an underground array of subversive objects, is Australia’s most thrilling cultural experience to be believed to be.
The capital of Australia gets a bad rap, mostly because of the political crackling. However, visitors are treated to a compact city full of great attractions that tourists miss all too often, including the Australian War Memorial, the new Arboretum, Questacón, and the National Gallery museums and an entertaining (and booming) scene for food and drink.
An island paradise, blessed by more than 60 white sand beaches, turquoise water, and plenty of marine life located just half an hour ferry from Perth will be quite a popular destination. The star draw of ‘Rotto’ is the inhabitants of quokkas, a lovely little animal that seems to be a kangaroo and doesn’t fear admirers.
