Here are some natural wonders that make the country of Oz a popular destination for people seeking adventure, from the seaside moods to the desert, barren areas.
Daintree Rainforest: In the ancient, World Heritage-listed Daintree rainforest, lush green jungle filled with fan palms, prehistoric-looking ferns, and twisted mangroves fall down into a dazzling white-sand shoreline. You’ll be surrounded by a cacophony of birdsong, frog croaking, and insect buzz as soon as you approach the forest. On wildlife-spotting night excursions, mountain hikes, boardwalks, canopy walks, walking paths, horseback riding, kayaking, and crocodile-spotting cruises, you may continue your exploration of the area.
Great Barrier Reef: The Great Barrier Reef is both magnificent and vulnerable. It’s a complex environment with brilliant coral, leisurely sea turtles, gliding rays, timid reef sharks, and tropical fish of every color and size that stretches for more than 2000 kilometers along Queensland’s coastline. You may dive on it, snorkel over it, take a scenic flight or ride in a glass-bottomed boat to see it.
Ningaloo Reef: Snorkel amid pristine coral, surf off rarely-visited reefs, and dive at one of the world’s best diving sites at this World Heritage-listed marine park off the coast of Western Australia’s Coral Coast. Ningaloo offers more accessible attractions than the Great Barrier Reef: shallow, blue lagoons may be explored directly from the shore for superb snorkeling.
Pinnacles Desert: Thousands of ghostly limestone pillars rise from the surrounding plain like a gigantic, petrified extraterrestrial army, strewn among the dunes of Nambung National Park, and maybe mistaken for the surface of Mars. The Pinnacles Desert, one of the most strange landscapes in the west, attracts thousands of visitors each year. Although it’s easily accessible from Perth by day, staying overnight in neighboring Cervantes enables you several trips to see the complete spectrum of color changes at dawn, sunset, and full moon, when most tourists are back in their hotels.
The Outback: You’ll know you’re not simply visiting the desert when you’re cruising through South Australia’s Oodnadatta Track or depreciating your van on the Birdsville Track’s southern stretch. The sky is bluer out here, and the dust is redder than it is anywhere. Kilometers, spinifex mounds, and tire blowouts are the units of measurement for the days. If you don’t have much time, a road trip to Broken Hill, Australia’s mining town, could be the closest you can go to the seaside.
The Whitsundays: In this maritime life, you may visit a slew of beautiful islands but never find someplace that compares to the Whitsundays in terms of pure beauty. Yachts are launched from Airlie Beach and sailed amongst these lush green isles in a gradual search for paradise by travelers of all economic levels. Whitehaven Beach is one of Australia’s (and the world’s) greatest, so don’t miss it.
Uluru: Uluru, Australia’s most famous natural marvel, attracts visitors from all over the world. Nothing compares to the Rock’s massive size, character-pitted surface, and spiritual profundity. There are lots to see and do, including leisurely walks, bike rides, guided tours, desert culture, and simply pondering the big monolith’s various shifting colors and moods. The one thing you won’t be able to do is climb Uluru.
