Australia is a country and continent I have explore extensively. It’s a vast land with so much to offer and diverse experiences. From hanging out in the hip areas of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth to exploring the remote communities in the Australian Outback, you’ll need weeks to get a real feel for the country. Plan your next trip to Australia for its world-class beaches, magnificent scenery, daring adventures in the great outdoors, fabulous wine regions and fantastic food.
A country of vast distances, Australia is best-explored state by state. Start in Sydney in the state of New South Wales, which also has fantastic coastal communities. Queensland is also known as the Sunshine State for its tropical weather and the Great Barrier Reef. In the center of the country, Uluru in the Northern Territory is an iconic Australian landmark to mark off your bucket list. If you have the time, head to Victoria to discover Australia’s gold rush history and South Australia, for its quirky outback towns and adventures like swimming with sharks. Tasmania is Australia’s smallest state and a fabulous place for a road trip while Western Australia has amazingly rugged landscapes. It doesn’t matter where you go in Australia; you’ll soon discover you’ll want to stay longer.
If it’s your first-time visiting Australia, you’ll want to tick some of these iconic places off your to-visit list, but there are plenty of lesser-known spots with strange names (have you heard of Wollongong or Yamba?) and things to do in Australia you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
