10 places to visit in Australia

Everyone will like Australia: those who seek ordinary relaxation on the ocean, and fans of cultural expeditions, and lovers of wildlife. In this article – the most popular events and places in Australia that you need to consider when you vacation.

1. Sydney
The city of Sydney is the first thing that tourists think about when they travel to this continent. The Sydney Opera House, whose construction was completed in the 1960s, is undoubtedly one of the country’s main cultural icons. Even if you are not a fan of the opera, it is worth a visit – the unique design and excellent acoustics will amaze even tourists not experienced in music.

One of the hallmarks of Sydney – and cultural wealth, and a wide field of entertainment. On the beaches of Sydney are some of the best coastal playgrounds in the world. You can enjoy the gentle sun and clean sands as much as you like, and then go on a tour of the thickets. Finding entertainment at night in the city is not a problem. Countless establishments for all tastes will allow you to finish the day with dignity. When you are in the city, be sure to visit the Harbor Bridge.

2-3. Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef
Far North Queensland is a wonderful tropical paradise. Cairns is a reference point from where you can head south or north to the wonderful island resorts. Here, of course, it is not worth choosing a hotel room as a housing, but a house.

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef in the world. It stretches along the coast of Queensland at a distance of 35 million hectares! The Great Barrier Reef has chosen many species of fish and marine creatures as their home, and of course, they will provide you with a ton of opportunities to learn about the marine fauna and, naturally, to observe them. As a family vacation destination, the Great Barrier Reef is even more popular than Sydney.

4. Brisbane
When you travel to the Great Barrier Reef, Brisbane is the place where you can feel the spirit of a big city. The city is known for its spectacular night views and excellent cuisine, recognized as the best in Australia.

5. Melbourne
Melbourne is considered the country’s sensual heart. A wild mix of Art Nouveau architecture and wonderful examples of Victorian buildings. Shopping, great food, and perverse pleasures can all be found in Federation Square and New Quay.

6. Great Ocean Road
No visit to Australia would be complete without a trip along the Great Ocean Road. At any time of the year, the 200-mile highway, meandering along the coast, amazes tourists with its spectacular views. Along the road there are many interesting exotic restaurants and pubs. Take it on a two-day trip, or rent a room or house here.

7. Red Center and Uluru-Tut National Park
The Uluru Monolith is one of Australia’s most famous and mysterious sights. A huge red monolith looks best at sunset and sunrise, when the sun plays with all the colors on its sides. But beware of taking a piece of rock as a keepsake: the national park keepers receive thousands of packages from tourists who managed to take away the pebbles of the sacred monolith for Aboriginal people (by the way, this is prohibited by law). All write as one that the debris taken away brought them misfortune. Unbelievable, but it is a fact.

Uluru possesses a certain force that is not amenable to scientific understanding. Every year, climbing to its top, several thirsty thrills of tourists necessarily die from heart failure. Recently, strange flying objects in the form of large triangles were observed there, as claimed by both Australian astronomers and tourists. However, these objects were not detected by radar. And the sky god Wanjina, depicted in the drawings in the caves of Uluru, is very similar to an alien in a helmet …

Uluru-Tuta National Park is both a national park and a wildlife sanctuary. It is worth a visit to Ayers Rock, in the city of Alice Springs and Olgas.

8. Canberra
Canberra is the capital of Australia. Visit Parliament, the National Gallery of Australia, the National Library and the National Archives, which hold old films, records, books, artifacts and a war memorial. Four days spent in Canberra is enough to see all the sights.

9. Adelaide
Considered a portal to the sparsely populated territories of the continent, Adelaide is a rapidly developing city with the most prestigious vineyards in the country. There are several places in the city where you can have some fun. There are not so many establishments, but life in them at night is in full swing.

10. Tasmania
Amazing landscapes! Tasmania is ideal for hiking and camping. Tasmania can be reached by ferry or short flight. Hobart is an amazing city located on the Derwent River. Here you will find examples of colonial architecture. Local food is always fresh, and prices are relatively low.
