Australia is located between the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, in the southern hemisphere, occupies one of the oldest land masses.
It has more than 36,000 km. of coast, with very calm bays, gentle waves, beautiful cliffs, surrounded by the Pacific Oceans, the Arafura Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Southern Ocean, with its waters of different shades of blue.
A paradisiacal place for capturing images offering a landscape full of shades where they pass from an intense red, until reaching the greenish blue of their bushes or the white trunks of eucalyptus.
Best must-see places in Australia
Although Australia’s climate can vary from the tropical north to the temperate and dry environments of virtually the rest of the continent, throughout the year and in general, there are few extreme temperature variations.
It is the city with more inhabitants of Australia although it is not its capital (many are confused) and as every great city has many attractions, one of them is the famous Opera House and the Bay Bridge, which appear in all google results when they put “Australia.” This city has it all, incredible landscapes, beautiful beaches (such as Bondi Beach), lots of nightlife, museums (there is the museum of contemporary art that is excellent), you can climb to the Tower Eye Observatory that has incredible views of the entire city and much more. It is very modern and there are people from all over the world. To start your itinerary is ideal!
The blue mountains
If you want to disconnect from the city and connect with nature this is the ideal place, the good thing is that it is an hour and a half from Sydney, that is, you can go and return the same day, although we recommend staying at least 2 days. Here you will find the famous “three sisters” a very striking rock formation that appear on all postcards, and nearby is Wentworth Falls a waterfall also very nice to meet.
Uluru (in Ayres Rock)
It is in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, it is a monolith that at first seems only a giant rock but as it goes through it you fall in love, especially for its enormous mystical and sacred burden that the aborigines who live there give it, they tell you ancestral stories to explain the forms and signs created by erosion.
It is very famous because an optical phenomenon is experienced in it, the monolith is changing color throughout the day, due to an optical illusion caused by the reverberation of the sun in the desert.
On the outskirts of Uluru you can find many streams and caves with ancient cave paintings of great religious significance. Important: bring mosquito repellent because they say there are so many!
The Twelve Apostles (Twelve Apostles)
They are located in the Port Campbell National Park, in the state of Victoria. It is a set of rocks eroded by water that form a beautiful landscape.
The visit is free and the viewpoints are accessed from the visitor’s office by a wooden path that crosses below the route.
We recommend you to drive from Melbourne around the Great Ocean Road and on the way you will enjoy the scenery, since all the way around the coast.
One hour from Cairns is this circuit of waterfalls really impressive, the landscape has everything, mountains, lakes, waterfalls, animals of all kinds (even platypus), ancient trees, etc. We recommend you rent a car in Cairns and go walking along the route until you enter Atherton, it is very nice all the way to the place.
