Australia is one of the most beautiful and wonderful nations on earth to explore. If you haven’t yet been there, or you currently live there and are looking to explore when it’s possible to do so, it’s worth thinking about which experiences you’re going to prioritize. With a country as big and vast as Australia, you’re never going to be able to do it all in one visit. But there are some experiences in particular you won’t want to miss out on.
Go Hiking Around Byron Bay
Byron Bay and the hinterlands is a stunning stretch of Australia’s coastline and it has some of the most beautiful hills to go along with it. If you’re looking for an unforgettable hiking experience in a welcoming and friendly part of the country, you definitely need to head to Byron Bay and try it out. The laid back atmosphere only makes it even greater joy to visit, so don’t miss out.
Witness the Southern Lights
Everyone knows about the Northern Lights, but not everyone realizes that Australia has its own equivalent. The Southern Lights or Aurora Australis as they’re also known offer some of the most stunning natural sights you’ll ever take in. In many ways, they’re even more beautiful and captivating than the Northern Lights and the further south in Australia you go, the better chance you have of seeing them yourself.
Relax on the Gold Coast
If you’re looking to kick back and take it easy, you definitely need to spend some time on the Gold Coast. This is where you’ll find the very best coastlines that the country has to offer, and Brisbane is a city that you’ll want to experience first-hand. It’s also a part of the country that’s very popular with surfers, so you should be sure to make the most of that.
Exploring the Outback
The Australian outback is famous around the world, and you’ll definitely want to experience it first-hand one way or another when you’re in Australia. You can get tours of Uluru and the Australian outback if you want to take a safe and authentic approach. Exploration is different for different people, so find the pace and approach that’ll work best for you.
See the Wildlife of Kangaroo Island
If you want to enjoy the wildlife that the country has to offer, the best place you can visit is Kangaroo Island. And yes, there are plenty of kangaroos on this island, but many more besides too. You’ll find all of the animals most synonymous with Australia, such as sea lions and, of course, koala bears. It’s a testament to the natural beauty and wildlife that make Australia so unique.
