In the late 1700s, Australia was first known as a criminal colony. Australia, with its harsh climate and exotic fauna, will appear to its early settlers as another world. However, it has flourished in the last 300 years and has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It’s warm weather, friendly people, and its towns are still known as some of the liveliest in the world. All this makes Australia the perfect summer break for those who want to escape from the harsh winters of the Northern Hemisphere.
Australia is full of odd and beautiful things, so it can be hard to grasp what you need to see if you are under. You must do ten things here in the great southern country while you are.
1. Queensland: The Great Barrier Reef:
The reef is situated on the northern coast of Queensland. You can swim in a special underwater environment with whales and snorkel with tortoises. You can’t wet up the island or take a cruise for the day if you don’t feel like getting wet. Cairns is a nice place to relax in a tropical paradise with many resorts and hotels to choose from once you’ve finished the reef. Don’t forget to check out any of the many walks in the rain forest in Cairns, and instead try mountain biking through the forests if you are looking for something a little bit faster!
2. Northern Territory:
The trip to the Northern Territory is an Adventure alone and the biggest natural monolith in the world cannot just be skipped. The outdoor experience will be genuine as you ride along the long, straight path through the desert’s beginnings. You’ll have a great opportunity to see the flora and fauna of Australia around the rock, about 10 km away. Get there for the sunrise or sunset, if you can. At dawn and darkness, nothing can exceed the elegance of the red sandstone.
3. Western Australia:
For a relaxing outback journey, take a cruise on the Kimberley rivers. The comfort of your boat lies on the riverside, the islands, the reefs, the gorges, and the waterfalls.
You will also see the stunning wildflowers, which now cover most of West Australia if you make your journey straight from June to November. King’s Park in Perth is fantastic for flowers if you don’t want to go out for a day trip to Rottnest Island, where you can see the lovely coastline and the Quokka, one of Australia’s most beautiful marsupials.
Tasmania has some of Australia’s finest cellars and it would be a shame to miss Mole Creek’s magnificent caves of Marakoopa and King Solomon. You will go through the caves to see the stunning formation of stalactites and the country’s biggest glowing worms.
If you’re not up to the subway experience, the Trowunna Wildlife Park is still in Mole Creek. This is the right place to see, as well as quolls and wombats, the iconic Tassie Demon. Or the tour around Port Arthur will be right up your alley if you’re interested in Australia’s convicted past.
The Great Ocean Road runs along the coast of Victoria, bordered on the one hand by incredible coastline, and on the other by lovely rainforests. Touring the Great Ocean Route is a fantastic road trip to the left. You should stop in the 12 Apostles and explore the caverns and arcs made out of calcareous paths (although there are only eight left). There are many camping places and miles of beautiful beaches where you can relax.
The Otway Fly is also worth a look along the Great Ocean Path. The Otway Fly is a rainforest walk that extends over a distance of two kilometers (km) from the rainforest, placed at the canopy.
6. New South Wales:
The Blue Mountains is one of the prettiest mountain ranges in Australia. There are numerous walks and trails with varying difficulties for any form of journey. There is no better way of seeing the Australian bush than walking in the lovely mountains enveloped in the black haze of the sun, caused by the eucalyptus oil of gum trees. You should stop in the range of the Jenolan Cave, which is some of the country’s most impressive calcareous caves. Various guided tours of the grottoes, from a day out to a ghost tour, are arranged.
Without a ride to Sydney to see the Opera House and Harbour, there would be no trip to Australia. A cruise that takes you under the bridge and past the Opera House is the perfect way to visit the historic port of Sydney. If you go at night, the nightlight on the waterfront will be full of glory.
You will be able to go watching whales while you’re in Sydney between May and November. There are a number of whale tours, but all of them are worth a trip to see the whales in the bay.
