The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland
Being the largest living structure in the world, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the places you mustn’t miss while visiting Australia. It’s one of the most beautiful natural wonders, and the fact that it consists of over 3.000 individual reef systems and tropical islands is beyond breathtaking. This place is definitely what you should go for if you’re up for some scuba diving and snorkeling action – just look for cruise Whitsundays, based at Port of Airlie. It ferries divers and snorkelers to a pontoon anchored at Hardy Reef, and the day-long tour will help you experience the clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef at their finest. You’ll also get a chance to visit the underwater observatory, which is never a bad idea.
Byron Bay, NSW
On the other hand, if you’re for a more peaceful and spiritual traveling experience, you’ll absolutely adore Byron Bay in Northern NSW. This wonderful beachside town has always been extremely popular among the spa lovers, yoga enthusiasts, backpackers, and the spiritual people who are trying to find themselves. That makes it more than perfect for a relaxing trip. Of course, experienced surfers will be completely smitten with some of the most amazing breaks in Australia, since this place has so much to offer in terms of surfing as well. Just make sure not to skip Three Blue Ducks, home to heritage breed-pigs and chickens that will welcome you with a fabulous menu that emphasizes local produce. Sticky spiced lamb shoulder is our no. 1 choice!
If you thought that our list could be complete without Sydney, we have to say that you were wrong! Visiting Australia and not spending at least a couple of days there would be like visiting a vegetarian restaurant and ordering a steak. So, don’t miss this extraordinary place on your Australian trip. Walking across the Harbour Bridge and having a picnic in the Botanical Gardens are an absolute must, as well as exploring the Rocks District and taking the ferry over to Manly. All the shopaholics out there mustn’t skip the Queen Victoria Building, one of the hottest shopping spots. If road trips are your cup of tea, you can always hire a coach charter in Sydney and drive north to Byron Bay, since you’ll definitely need to take a break after a couple of hectic days in this magical city!
Visiting Hobart is what you should opt for if you enjoy exploring historical sights, since it’s Australia’s second oldest city. This place is a truly amazing blend of culture, heritage, and scenery that offers some exciting attractions and a wide range of different activities everyone will love. A modern lifestyle contrasts the tradition and heritage in the best possible way. You should experience it through the short walk from the waterfront. Its theatres, craft shops, galleries, and restaurants located in 1830s Georgian warehouses will make you fall in love with this place, as well as Salamanca Market which is one of the best outdoor markets in Australia. Don’t forget to take a tour to the summit of Mount Wellington, since it offers the most breathtaking views of the city and the harbour.
Each of these four places is completely magical, without any doubt. That’s exactly why you should check them off your bucket list as soon as possible. The Land Down Under truly has so much to offer, from stunning scenery and marvellous natural wonders, to over-the-top food scene and a plethora of different activities.
