When you are planning a trip to Australia, one of the biggest and most popular destinations is Sydney. While this incredible city in New South Wales has much to offer both natives and tourists, Australia is a lovely place that has a lot to provide you with as a tourist. Once you visit the following destinations, your trip to Australia will soon be your favorite, and you will soon repeat it.
Comparable to Sydney, check out Melbourne when you get to Australia. As one of the top destinations in Australia, Melbourne is a must-see paradise surrounded by clear waters, tourist attractions, shops and restaurants, and more. It is also filled with local history and family attractions, such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Scienceworks, Fitzroy Gardens, the Melbourne Aquarium, and Treasury Gardens. If you are in Southern Australia, be sure that Melbourne makes your to-do list of Aussie attractions. Of course, you can take a trip to Sydney as well - merely to compare the two.
For attractions in Northern Australia, place Darwin at the top of your to-do list - especially if you are a nature lover and enjoy diving into local history. Darwin is an excellent destination for soaking up local history and jumping over to other popular destinations, such as the Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land, Darwin Crocodile Farm, with plenty of Dutch, French, and WWII history, the Olgas, and Devil’s Marbles Conservation Park.
Many people yearn to visit Australia for its beautiful scenery, and of course, Australia is home to some of the world’s most incredible beach living you’ll ever experience. Located in Southeast Queensland, you will find Fraser Island. Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island, and if you have come to Australia to experience authentic beach living, this one of your primary to-do list destinations. Of course, you should not count off a road trip around Australia, The Great Ocean Road, to experience the other beaches and incredible scenery around this playground for thrill-seekers.
No trip to Australia would be complete without experiencing the Great Barrier Reef first hand. It is one of the largest and oldest coral reefs in the world and covers an area of more than 130,000 square miles. The Great Barrier Reef is near Cairns and Townsville, in Northern Australia, and is home to more than 2,000 species of fish and hundreds of species of coral. It is crucial that you do not leave such an incredible sight off your next Australian adventure on your bucket list.
