There are places that you must see when you are on your Aussie holiday. It would be a shame to travel so far only to miss out on what this vast continent has to offer. You could jump on an aeroplane and be at a European destination in only two or three hours, but does that feel like an adventure? Imagine a trip to the far side of the planet where the people are friendly, and you are as far from home as you can get. That is what I call excitement. Modern planes are luxurious and come with in-flight entertainment, so the long journey isn’t the chore it once was.
Let’s imagine you have booked your flights. Here are my top recommendations for places to visit.
When you mention Australia, the first image to pop into people’s mind is the iconic Sydney Opera House. If you love opera, you will have a pleasant experience within its walls. Everyone should experience it once in their lives, and this is the place to do it in style. Sydney has much more to offer. The royal Botanic Gardens display perfect examples of antipodean fauna for you to browse at your leisure. Bondi beach is the place to hone your surfing skills among the beautiful people there. There is so much to do in Sydney that you must leave prematurely if you are to visit other places. It would be easy to spend your whole vacation there.
Darwin is a small city in comparison to some of the others, but don’t let that fool you. There are many things to do in Darwin that bring excitement and adventure to your trip. There are companies that will take you on a helicopter ride so that you can appreciate the landscape from the air. Maybe you would like to jump in a cage and swim with crocodiles. The city is surrounded by water on three sides, so there are plenty of beaches for you to relax on between trips.
Canberra is Australia’s capital city, and it is perfect for family holidays. You can hire bicycles and head off on well defined and extensive cycle paths or visit the museums and cultural centres to learn about Australian history and culture. You will find over one hundred thousand pieces of artwork in the national Gallery of Australia by some of the most well known artists in the world. Visit one of the most impressive war memorials in the world on Treloar Crescent.The kids can explore a model submarine and find out what the war was like from the point of view of a soldier.
Those are my favourite places, but consider a visit to Gold Coast too, where Surfers Paradise awaits those who are brave enough to take on the big waves. There are many adventure parks there too, with world-class rides.
As you can see, Australia is an exciting place to say the least. It is a once in a lifetime trip that you will never forget. Have you ever spoke to anyone who didn’t enjoy their time there? Now you know why. Hoo roo!
