A visit to Australia at first feels like a visit to any other European or Western country. You’ll find similar brands and products for sale, with opportunities to enjoy some of your favorite dishes from home.

The largest part of Australia is desert or semi-arid, but the south-east and south-west corners have temperate climate and moderately fertile soil. The northern part has tropical climate, which is part tropical rainforest, part grassland and part desert.

Once you step outside of the cities, however, you’ll find that Australia is a wholly unique place to visit.

Some nations promote their wildlife, but in Australia, one must take the “wild” seriously. More than 80% of the reptiles, mammals, and plants that can be found in this continental nation are found nowhere else in the world. Kangaroos, koala bears, dingoes, and wombats are just some of what you can expect to find if you head out for an outback adventure.

The Great Barrier Reef is another wonder that deserves a visit. Hiring a boat to explore this reef can make for a fun and engaging day trip. It is the world’s largest coral reef and extends for over 1,200 kms! It lies a short distance from the north-east coast. The Blue Mountains and Fraser Island are additional natural wonders that deserve their own visit as well.

Another spectacular place to visit is Uluru. It is the second largest monolith in the world and is located in central Australia. You can also visit the Great Artesian Basin, which is the world’s largest and deepest fresh water basin. Along with its beauty, it also serves as an important source of water in the parched outback.

You’ll also find numerous opportunities to relax in your own unique way. Enjoy the hundreds of miles of coastline that are available. Explore Barossa Valley and enjoy its winemaking expertise. Take a walk in The Rocks, which is an urban precinct of Sydney that offers shopping, art tours, and historical exhibits.

You sure can’t miss going to Sydney if you visit Australia. Sydney is located in a coastal basin situated between the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Blue Mountains to the west. You can enjoy more than 70 beaches in Sydney! If you have limited time, then you can only go to the famous Bondi Beach of Australia. Sydney has more amazing landmarks for you like Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. If you are interested in rowing, boating, recreational fishing, racing small yachts and Dragon Boat racing, then you can get all that in Sydney Harbour.

Melbourne lies in the south-east corner of the mainland Australia. The city is known for a large and vibrant cultural life along with a chain of pubs, bars and nightclubs. Try out the fun in fashionable nightclubs, ubiquitous faux-Irish pubs, serious jazz venues on Bennetts Lane or the massive pickup joints like The Metro on Bourke Street.

After “sin city Melbourne” do not forget Adelaide or the ‘City of Churches’, as it is often referred as. But do not worry, the name City of Churches is a reflection of Adelaide’s past rather than its present.

Perth is a city known for the pristine quality of its beaches. Unbroken stretches of golden sands run through the entire length of the city’s coastal suburbs. If you are a nature lover, then you got to see this place.

With botanical gardens as common as coffee shops, Australia offers numerous opportunities to explore. Be wild or kick back and watch an ODI at the local cricket grounds. Either way, this nation invites you to enjoy a taste of home even though you’re far from it.
