Australia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It’s home to some of the most breathtaking natural wonders and man-made structures, from Uluru to Sydney Opera House and everything in between. You can spend your entire life exploring this vast country, but if you only have a few weeks or months to spare, here are my top picks:
The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, stretching over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands. It’s located in the Coral Sea off Australia’s east coast, where warm waters from the equator meet cool currents from southern oceans. This makes for some of the best diving conditions on Earth–and it’s easy to see why people flock here from all over the globe!
Uluru is an Aboriginal word meaning “A place of many wings”. It’s a large rock formation in the Northern Territory, Australia and is sacred to the indigenous Anangu people. Uluru is 3.6km long and 1.6km wide, making it the second largest monolith (single mass of rock) in the world after Mount Augustus in Western Australia.
If you’re planning on visiting Uluru, keep these things in mind:
- It’s best not to climb up or down its sides due to cultural concerns for its significance as a sacred site for Aboriginal Australians;
- You should also avoid walking around on top of Uluru at night because there are plenty of snakes out there that could bite you;
- If you’re planning on camping at Ayers Rock Resort (which has been converted into an eco-friendly resort), be sure not bring any alcohol with you because it’s prohibited by law;
Kangaroo Island is a popular tourist destination, known for its natural beauty and as home to many species of animals and birds. It’s also a popular destination for surfers who enjoy the waves that roll onto the island’s shores.
Sydney Opera House
The Sydney Opera House is a world-famous building that sits on the edge of Sydney Harbour. It’s one of Australia’s most iconic landmarks, and it’s easy to see why: The structure was designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon and opened in 1973.
The building has two performance halls–the Concert Hall and Drama Theatre–and hosts some of Australia’s most famous events, including the annual Sydney Festival. If you’re looking for something less formal than an opera or play, check out one of their free concerts on Saturdays at 1 p.m., which are open to everyone! You can also take advantage of their guided tours during weekdays; these run from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm every day except Wednesday (when they stop at 12 pm).
If you have time before or after your visit here, consider visiting nearby attractions like Taronga Zoo or Manly Beach just across Pittwater Road from North Head Scenic Reserve where there are great views over Sydney Harbour Bridge etc..
Blue Mountains National Park
The Blue Mountains National Park is a popular tourist destination, and for good reason. The park comprises of more than 800 square kilometers of breathtaking natural beauty that make it one of the most spectacular places in Australia. The mountains themselves are located west of Sydney, making them easy to reach from the city center (just over an hour’s drive).
The Blue Mountains have many hiking trails for all skill levels, including some challenging hikes like The Three Sisters Walk or Katoomba Falls Trail. You can also explore other options like mountain biking or rock climbing if you’re looking for something less strenuous but still outdoorsy!
If you’d rather stay put than hike around all day long, there are plenty of other things to do as well: take a bicycle tour through town; go horseback riding along scenic trails; visit historic sites like Wentworth Falls Station Homestead Museum where convicts once worked as slaves before heading off on their journey across Australia; visit Jenolan Caves which are filled with beautiful stalactites formed over millions years–and don’t forget about cable cars!
