Melbourne is the largest city to make our list, and the second most populous in the country. It shares characteristics with most cultural centers as the capital for the Australian film and television industries. Such is the zeitgeist that surrounds Melbourne year-round; artistic and progressive in every aspect of the city, it was named “The World’s Most Livable City” in 2011 by Economist Group’s Intelligence Unit. We also think it is one or the most visit-able.
4) Norfolk Island
We won’t get into the technicalities of Norfolk Island’s government policy, all you need to know is that it is one of the most secluded and beautiful destinations in the South Pacific. The island boasts that it is a world away from anything you’ve experienced including a complete lack of traffic lights. Sounds like the perfect experience to us.
The largest tourist destination for those who want to The Great Barrier Reef, Cairns in far from most tourist destinations, over 1,000 miles North of Brisbane. That shouldn’t stop you from exploring the rest of the country while you are there since domestic flights in Australia are available in abundance. The Great Barrier Reef is considered by many to be one of the 7 Underwater Wonders of the World and is one of the world’s largest natural landmarks visible from space. Take our word for it and visit it up close for an aquatic experience you will never forget.
2) Blue Mountains
Blue Mountains is best known among adventure seekers traveling to Australia but you won’t need any grappling hooks to enjoy the one-of-a-kind views the area has to offer. Natural attractions such as the Three Sisters (pictured) and The Giant Staircase are their most popular but around every bend is a new mystery waiting for you to discover it. Fly into Sydney to make the short trip to the Blue Mountains and get the most out of your trip Down Under.
Whitsundays offers you essentially everything you could ask for in a beach vacation. The area has 74 tropical islands and includes some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, such as Hill Inlet and Airlie Beach. While tourists make up most of the beach bums, the area still retains a preserved atmosphere. If seclusion, romance, and a walk on the most scenic of beaches are your ideas of a summer vacation, make your way to Whitsundays this summer.
