Australia’s Must-see Destinations

No other undersea experience could rival the experience of diving in this majestic reef.
2. The Sydney Opera House – If you are a lover of music or architecture, you simply must visit the Sydney Opera House. The Opera House has become symbolic of Australia and combines impeccable architecture with opera, theatre, ballet and all other performing arts in between.
3. Sydney Harbour Bridge – Want to feel the thrill of having a bird’s eye view of Sydney harbour? At Sydney Harbour Bridge, you can experience just that.

4. Kangaroo Island, South Australia – Ever wished to hug a koala or hop with the kangaroos? In Kangaroo Island, you can have your chance.

5. Uluru/ Ayers Rock, Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory – Considered the world’s largest monolith, Uluru is a sight that needs to be seen to be believed. The gigantic singular rock formation is said to display an array of different colours in different angles throughout the day. Just like an iceberg, most of its mass is buried underneath the ground, yet it still towers above ground at a staggering 348 metres. After a day of excitement and adventure a guided trek around this most sacred aboriginal rock could just give you the relaxation and meditation you need.
