Tasmania, officially the destination with the cleanest air in the world.
In our opinion, if you’re travelling around Australia, or looking for somewhere for a holiday – a visit to Tasmania should definitely not be missed.The Island is the 26th largest in the world and sits 240kms South of Melbourne. Almost half of Tasmania lies in reserves, national parks and world heritage sites. The stunning island is well known for its unique fauna, flora and diverse vegetation, many fauna species are in fact unique to Tasmania – meaning if you want to see it, you have to visit! Unlike parts of Australia, Tasmania has four distinct seasons and temperatures drop down relatively low during the winter months, so be prepared!
When you’re travelling in Australia, one of the first things you’ll notice is that it’s HUGE! Too big to travel on foot, or by bicycle – leave that for exploring Amsterdam. If you’re smart, and you plan on having your own adventure (not sharing it with 55 other people) then you’re probably planning to get yourself a set of wheels.
As a british person writing this post, I can empathise with those backpackers that come all the way to Australia on a time limit and end up missing out on the west side of this ginormous country. When planning a trip you ultimately want to see as much as you can and with Melbourne to Cairns so accessible in as little as four weeks (although we don’t recommend it!) it’s no wonder backpackers choose to explore the east coast. However, for those of you who are curious, have the time, or simply just fancy seeing what the west has to offer, we reckon visiting Broome should be WELL up there on your list.
When tourists think of Australia, several things spring to mind. Kangaroos, beer, friendly people, koalas, gorgeous weather and perhaps at the top of the list would be: beaches.
People flock from all around the world to indulge in the beautiful beaches that Australia have to offer and although we’re no experts (but have done our fair share of sampling!) we thought we would help out and write a list of beaches we thought would be worth checking out. Apologies for any that are missing off of this list! Let us know which ones you think we’re missing out on!
