Do you have a bucket list? Even if you don’t, you’ve probably given some thought to a couple of the things you’d like to do before you die, and it’s just normal. Life is short, and there are so many wonderful sights to see and things to do on this earth that would be impossible to accomplish. Impossible, that is, until they are listed down as priorities before you kick the bucket.

Of all the things you could do and all the places you could visit, which ones are on your list? There are an exponential number to choose from, but if there’s one place that could satisfy them all, it would probably be Australia. Why Australia, you ask? Australia is filled with the most awe-inspiring sights and natural wonders, and isn’t lacking in terms of exciting bucket list-worthy activities as well. If you have doubts, just take a look at our list of Australia’s top destinations and see for yourself how this huge island continent offers all that any bucket list could ask for!

Australia’s Must-see Destinations

1. The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland – Who wouldn’t include diving in The Great barrier Reef as one entry in their bucket list? The Great Barrier Reef is one of nature’s most amazing sights with more than 300,000 square kilometres of multicoloured corals and unique and captivating sea creatures. 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. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia’s premier tourist attractions and a climb to the top means you get a breathtaking view that’s 134 metres above the harbour.

4. Kangaroo Island, South Australia – Ever wished to hug a koala or hop with the kangaroos? In Kangaroo Island, you can have your chance. Kangaroo Island is a haven for majority of Australia’s wildlife, from koalas and kangaroos to emus, platypuses and Tasmanian devils. Kangaroo Island is where you’ll find all these incredible creatures in their most natural, breathtaking settings.

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.

These are a just a fraction of the countless sights worth seeing and experiencing in Australia, so when you have the time grab a backpack and explore Australia – before you kick the bucket!
