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
The Gold Coast is a coastal haven that beckons visitors with its sun-soaked beaches and vibrant atmosphere. Surfers Paradise, a bustling suburb within the Gold Coast, with its golden sands, consistent waves, and lively beachfront, offers a vibrant mix of beach culture, trendy cafes, and vibrant nightlife, ensuring there's always something exciting to do after a day relaxing by the beach.
Beyond the pristine coastline, the Gold Coast also boasts a stunning hinterland that provides a stark contrast to the bustling beachfront. The Hinterland, with its lush rainforests and breathtaking landscapes, offers a tranquil escape from the energetic beach scene. Picture-perfect waterfalls, walking trails, and charming mountain villages await those seeking a peaceful retreat amidst nature's beauty. Lamington National Park and Springbrook National Park are just a short drive away, showcasing the region's diverse flora and fauna, enchanting visitors with their natural wonders.
Whether you're a thrill-seeker, or a nature enthusiast, the Gold Coast is a destination that caters to all. The Gold Coast truly offers the best of both worlds, making it an unforgettable destination for those seeking a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation.
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.
