Australia is vast and offers unequalled experiences and a wealth of diversity like no other country.
The list of things to do in Australia is endless and will keep you entertained and wishing you could stay just a little bit longer.
Maybe we’re biased because we live here, but Australia has a lot of bests – world bests, that is. It has the best natural scenery, the weirdest wildlife, the most brilliant scuba diving and snorkelling, the best beaches, the oldest rainforest (110 million years and counting), the oldest human civilization (some archaeologists say 40,000 years, some say 120,000; whatever, it’s old) and the best food – seafood, that is – that you can find anywhere else in the world.
When most people think of Australia, they conjure up romantic images of skipping kangaroos, dusty red deserts, and golden sand. They visit the popular Australian attractions like the Sydney Opera House, perhaps, or maybe the Sydney Harbour Bridge. They imagine drawling accents and slouch hats, and people who wrestle crocodiles for the fun of it. Of course it’s all that – and more. This huge continent is truly remarkable. There are rolling green hills, thick ancient rainforests, historic towns, vast areas of sparsely inhabited Outback, thousands of beaches to choose from, unique animals and plants, cosmopolitan cities, and intriguing Aboriginal cultures to explore.
Given the size of this continent, there are so many places to see in Australia that it’s hard to even scratch the surface. Scarcely a visitor lands on these shores without having the Great Barrier Reef at the top of their “Things to See” list. So they should, because it really is a glorious natural masterpiece. Also high on most folks’ lists is Uluru. The third attraction on most visitors’ lists is Sydney, the Emerald City that glitters in the sunshine with its glorious harbour, spanned by one of the most famous bridges in the world. While these popular attractions are definitely worth visiting, it’s also worth considering taking the road less travelled for experiences like no other.
Who could forget wandering around an opal field with its underground houses? Or skiing through the gum trees? Or snorkelling the whale sharks in Western Australia? Or marvelling at the thousands of koalas on Kangaroo Island? Or travelling dusty tracks more suitable to emus in the company of an Outback postman?
Here’s where our website will be of help. Hopefully it will help you think about what you want to see and how you’re going to get there.
