Diving the Great Barrier Reef

Possibly one of the most famous tourist attractions of this country is the largest living structure in the world. Actually, Great Barrier Reef is the only living thing that is visible from outer space.

If you enjoy diving and snorkeling, this will be a real heaven for you. Diverse sea life can be found in crystal clear waters of the Reef. And if you are not that into diving but you still want to experience rich sea life, there are plenty of underwater tunnels that will get you closer to the coral reef ecosystem.

Riding the Slopes of the Snowy Mountains

If you seek a little bit more thrill than surfing the Australian waters, you might as well head inland and visit country’s largest alpine terrain and home to the highest peak of the continent – Mount Kosciuszko.

Affordable prices of accommodation make Snowy Mountains a perfect pick even if you are planning a budget travel trip. Make sure to consider booking your place in Lantern apartments for example.

Catching the Metropolitan Vibes

We all know that Australia has a couple of big cities, which are widely known for their beautiful architecture and lots of entertaining content. Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth are just some of the cities you should consider visiting.

If you are low on time, but you still want to see Sydney’s Opera House as well as King’s Park in Perth, you can plan for a road trip down the Australian coast.

Riding the Australian Waves

With all else being said, I think that everyone will agree that Australia is most famous for its staggering 50000 kilometers of coastline and beautiful sandy beaches. If you are are an active surfer, Australia is definitely the place to be for you.

There are many beaches that are dubbed as surfer’s paradise along the Australian coast. Byron Bay, Cactus Beach or Bell’s Beach are just some of them.


Last but not the least, visiting Australia wouldn’t be complete without visiting the island of Tasmania. Located just south of Australian shores, this island was once home to the Aboriginal people. It is rich with many monuments and temples that were preserved over time and are very well worth visiting today.

Also, besides its cultural value, Tasmania is known for almost fully preserved natural habitat and fantastic scenery, so it’s a must-visit for all those nature lovers.

In the End

Planning your visit to this big country is a hard thing to do. Besides all of these mentioned here, notable mentions would be Kakadu National Park, Uluru or visiting Great Ocean Road in Victoria. Either way, one thing is for certain – you won’t get bored in this country and you will want to come again!
