10 Most Popular Australia Destinations To Visit
Some of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations are Kangaroo Island’s wilderness, the Daintree rainforest, the wineries of Margaret River, and the beaches of the Gold Coast. and this article didn’t even have room for them! That means that the 10 places that did make this list of Australia’s best places to visit are really great. We swear.
Most international visitors come to Australia through its biggest city, Sydney. The sparkling Sydney Harbour is a beautiful way to greet them. Sydney has two famous landmarks that you can’t miss: the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. However, Bondi and Coogee in the Eastern Suburbs and Manly on the Northern Beaches are the Harbour City’s most beautiful beaches.
The second largest city in the country doesn’t have as much sand or sun as Sydney, but it makes up for it with coffee, culture, food, and sports. The capital of Victoria is Australia’s most cosmopolitan city. It has moody laneways lined with urban art and hole-in-the-wall cafes, arty boutiques and galleries, a progressive dining scene, and sports. There is a lot of sport.
#3 Great Barrier Reef
While you still can, go see it. The world’s largest coral reef system, which runs for 2,300 kilometers along the sunny Queensland coast, is losing its color because of climate change. However, there are still many dive sites where you can snorkel in warm water to see beautiful coral and amazing marine life. In tropical North Queensland, you can also see the lush Daintree Rainforest, the amazing Fraser Island, and the peaceful Whitsunday Islands.
The majesty of “The Rock,” a huge sandstone monolith that rises out of the red dust of Central Australia, is hard to describe in words. Uluru has a lot of meaning for Australia’s Indigenous people and is one of the country’s most famous landmarks. You can see it on foot, from a horse or Harley Davidson, from a helicopter or hot air balloon, or while eating dinner at dusk.
Adelaide’s old name, “The City of Churches,” doesn’t do justice to how lively and exciting the city has become in recent years. Maybe “the city with festivals all year long” or “the city with bars, cafes, and restaurants that give Melbourne a run for its money” or “the city with dozens of wine regions on its doorstep,” making it the perfect place to try South Australia’s world-class reds.
#6 Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road is 243 kilometers of rough Victorian coastline west of Melbourne. It is Australia’s most beautiful tourist route and may be one of the most beautiful road trips in the world. Plan stops to see the tall limestone stacks of the 12 Apostles, the picture-perfect Loch Ard Gorge, and cute coastal towns like Port Fairy.
#7 Byron Bay
The most easterly point on the Australian mainland is many things, including one of the most popular tourist spots in the country. It has been called a hippie haven, a surfing mecca, a celebrity hideaway, and a must-stop on the backpacker trail up the East Coast. If you want to avoid the crowds and high prices of Byron Bay, you can escape into the beautiful hinterland, chill out in Nimbin, which is a center for alternative lifestyles, or catch a wave in Yamba, which is just down the road.
The capital of Tasmania, a green island state just south of Australia, has always been a nice place to visit. However, Hobart has become a must-see destination for one reason and one reason only: the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA). The Museum of Old and New Art is Australia’s most exciting cultural attraction. It opened in 2011 in a winery and has a collection of subversive art that you have to see to believe.
People don’t like the capital of Australia because it’s full of politicians. But visitors will find a small city full of great things to see and do that tourists often miss. These include the interesting Australian War Memorial, the modern National Arboretum, the many museums like Questacon and the National Gallery, and an exciting (and growing) food and drink scene.
#10 Rottnest Island
Even without Australia’s cutest animal, an island paradise with more than 60 white sand beaches, turquoise water, and lots of marine life would be a popular place to visit. The quokkas that live in “Rotto” are the main attraction. They are cute little animals that look like small kangaroos and aren’t afraid to hop up to people and pose for pictures.
