You will find many interesting places and gorgeous beaches in the city of the same name and the surrounding area, especially for surfers and sea lovers. Other attractions include theme parks and vibrant nightlife at Surfers Paradise. Do not miss trips to the surrounding mountains and national parks to see the waterfalls and the areas’ rich flora and fauna. A little further south, the small town of Byron Bay is famous for its beaches, impressive lighthouses and marine fauna.
Located in front of Townsville, on the northeast coast of Australia and has fantastic beaches. Two thirds of the island is part of the National Park, where you can see cute koalas and kangaroos in their natural habitat. The island has long been established as a holiday destination, with many hotels and resorts, for visitors’ tastes and requirements.
Ayers Rocks (or Uluru)
Located in the heart of Australia, near Alice Springs. It is the largest monolithic rock in the world and a sacred place for the Aborigines. The surrounding area is desert and also has a plethora of fountains, caves and ancient paintings. Uluru is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, together with the Kata Tjuta rock formations, are the two most important sights of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.

The erosion caused by the sea and the winds created giant monoliths, named “the 12 Apostles” (today, there are only eight of them). Melbourne is a fascinating city, with a famous track for F1 racing. Its multicultural character, its vibrant nightlife, and the excellent restaurants you will find are just some of the numerous reasons you should visit it.
It is one of Australia’s most beautiful parts, an island at its southwestern tip – and is reminiscent of some parts of New Zealand, with beautiful cities with excellent infrastructure for visitors, stunning nature and beautiful beaches. The mountains and lakes of this large island are famous for their beauty and wildlife. There are many historical monuments and attractions from the time when Tasmania was a large prison area for British convicts.
Built on the great Swan River banks, between the Indian Ocean and the Nullarbor Desert, Perth’s city in southwestern Australia is one of the most secluded cities in the world. Still, it has fantastic beaches and vibrant nightlife. The family-run Cottesloe suburb is full of surfers and swimmers, while in the north, in Scarborough, you will find inspirational beachfront clubs and bars. Visit the opposite island of Rottnest and do not miss the view from the so-called King’s Park and the surrounding botanical gardens.
Kakadu National Park
It is located near the town of Darwin, in the north of Australia and is one of the most beautiful national parks in Australia with rich wildlife and a variety of endemic plants and works of Aboriginal art. The only “negative” is that it is so popular that it is difficult to get there without countless other tourists. All this in pre-pandemic times, of course. The National Park covers an area of 19,804 square kilometres, about half the size of Switzerland. The nearby Ranger uranium mine is one of the most productive uranium mines in the world.
