Often referred to as “the Oldest Continent” and “the Last Frontier”, Australia has often given the impression of being isolated, dry, and desolate. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth! Take a deep dive into Australia this year and discover what makes this country shine, from its rich cultural history to its beautiful natural landmarks. Depending on your passion, Australia has something for everyone.
Stunning Nature and Scenery
For those with a taste for adventure, Australia has you covered, offering a plethora of national parks and natural attractions to explore. Take a walk around Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, about a 5-hour drive from Alice Springs, and witness the stunning beauty of one of Australia’s national wonders. Further down south closer to Adelaide lives Wilpena Pound, a vast crater carved out of the desert and enveloped by jagged mountains. Covering eight times the area of Uluru, it is truly a sight to behold.
Hiking enthusiasts can rejoice at the sheer number of natural trails spanning across the country, one being the Blue Mountains just west of Sydney. Experience the beautiful scenery of the Blue Mountains bushwalk and hike up to Echo Point Lookout to see the Three Sisters, where you’ll see breath-taking views and stunning rock formations. For the less adventurous, take a trip to the quaint mountain towns and experience wholesome family-friendly activities such as apple picking at the Bilpin Fruit Bowl and partake in a luxurious high tea at the Hydro Majestic hotel. Further down south, west of Melbourne lies the Grampians National Park, where nature lovers can experience the must-see Mackenzie Falls, as well as hike to their heart’s content in the 2.5-hour return trail that ends in superb views of tree-enshrouded mountains, sapphire lakes, and vast canyons.
Rest and Relaxation
We all need a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and with the countless beaches and lakes Australia has to offer, there’s no better place to relax. Travel up north and experience stunning crystal-clear waters and sheer white sand in Noosa Spit, located on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. With bountiful ocean activities and breath-taking scenery, Noosa offers up the ultimate holiday experience.
For animal lovers, South Australia’s Port Lincoln has you covered. Swim with sea lions in crystal clear waters and marvel at the annual gathering of 250,000 Australian cuttlefish between May and August each year. Further down south in Tasmania lies Freycinet National Park, a stunning cerulean haven for humans and animals alike. After taking a dip in the serene waters, take a drive down to the nearby town of Bicheno to say hello to the various native wildlife, including Tasmanian devils, koalas, and parrots.
