Australia is a land of mystery and intrigue. Somewhere this big can make it difficult to decide what to see and do. Which is why we have put together a quick list of 5 essential aussie sights!
Dive the Great Barrier Reef
Whether you’re a water baby or not, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the most stunning dive spots in the world and to pass it up would be criminal! If you don’t know how to scuba dive then it’s easy to take a course, or you can just snorkel and still see the amazing underwater world!
Visit Ayres Rock
Ayres Rock is one of the icons of Australia so it has to be a must visit. It is a big trip, but once you’re there you will be in awe of the massive size. It makes you feel tiny and is thoroughly impressive when you get up close and personal.
Visit an Animal Sanctuary in Queensland
Where better to see the wildlife of this amazing country than in the natural habitat of an animal sanctuary. With Koala Bears, Kangaroos and Wombats just a few of the wonderful animals Australia has to offer, a visit to an animal sanctuary is a must. You can find them all over the country, but those in Queensland will really blow your mind.
Soak up Sydney
Sydney is another one of the icons of Australia, and the image of Sydney Opera House with Harbour Bridge in the background is embedded in anyone’s mind who has been there. But there’s more to Sydney than that. With fun loving people, great weather and a cosmopolitan city to compete with the best of them, it’s very easy to get stuck there!
Hit the Outback
Given how big Australia is, the outback is pretty much in your back garden wherever you are. Whether you take a coach tour or decide to do it properly on a camel safari, you’ll marvel at the daunting nothingness. It’s beautifully peaceful.
