When traveling in and around Australia, there is so much to see and do it can be overwhelming. To help you out, I put together a list of my 5 Australian must sees!
The Great Ocean Road – The Great Ocean Road is a scenic drive approximately 150 miles long on the coast of Australia. The road offers panoramic views of the ocean and cliffs, and it winds its way through cool climate rain forests. There are many beaches that you can stop and swim at along the drive, and also opportunities for hiking and other attractions.
Sydney- Sydney is an iconic feature of Australia. There is plenty to see and do in Sydney apart from the well know attractions of the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, and Bondi/Manly beaches. Sydney is home to the great Taronga Zoo, there are festivals on all year long, and it is steeped in Australian pioneering history.
Byron Bay- Located in New South Wales, just south of the Queensland border, Byron Bay is popular with not just international tourists, but is also a favorite holiday destination of Australians. There is plenty to do and the kilometers of pristine beach, the weather, surfing, scuba diving, and other attractions will ensure that Byron Bay remains one of Australia’s top tourist destinations for years to come.
The Great Barrier Reef- Stretching for approximately 2,300 kms, it is home to a vast wealth of rare, endangered, and unique animal and plant species. It’s hard to recommend one particular area of the reef to visit, but most people agree that the Whitsunday Islands are absolutely stunning. With snorkeling and scuba diving areas literally everywhere you are bound to experience wonders that will stay with you for the rest of your life!
Morton Island- Morton Island is the third largest sand island in the world. Breathtaking scenery, massive sand dunes, glassy lakes, rocky outcrops, wild forest, beautiful beaches and a lighthouse are some of the unique features you can explore here.
