Australia is a beautiful country filled with both natural and manmade landmarks that are not to be missed. Every state has beauty and charm, and if you are planning to make your way around Australia, you must stop by the most popular landmarks in each of them. While they all differ greatly from one another, they all encompass the beauty and singularity that Australia is so known for throughout the world.
Uluru – NT
Ayers Rock, also known as Uluru, is one of those landmarks that leaves you absolutely speechless the moment it is before you. Formed by natural sandstone, Uluru’s legends go deep into the history of Aboriginal Australia which gives its existence an uncomparable and profound meaning. The best times to experience this Ayers Rock are during dusk or dawn, when its colours are known to change dramatically.
Great Ocean Road – VIC
If you have the chance to visit Victoria, you cannot go without experiencing one of the most picturesque road trips in the world. The Great Ocean Road extends along Victoria’s coastline and as its name suggests, it is filled with breathtaking ocean views. Some of the most renowned spots within the Great Ocean Road that you absolutely have your camera ready for include the Loch Ard Gorge, the London Bridge, and the most popular of all — The Twelve Apostles.
Sydney Opera House – NSW
While the Harbour Bridge is also an iconic view to experience in Sydney, the Sydney Opera House is the structure that embodies what foreigners think about when they picture Australia. The architecture and presence of this landmark is truly remarkable and it makes for the perfect tourist picture to keep as a lifetime memory.
Great Barrier Reef – QLD
Australia’s wild life extends far beyond what’s found on land. the great Barrier Reef is the must snorkel/dive adventure that any visitor of Queensland simply cannot afford to miss. It is the world’s largest coral reef, and the largest structure composed by living organisms. With it’s distinct and unique marine life, as well as its vivid and mesmerising colours, it is perhaps the greatest element of pride in Australia.
Turquoise Bay – WA
West Australia is known for its year round beautiful weather, and with that in mind, it is no surprise that the must see attraction is one of its stunning beaches! Turquoise Bay really lives up to the name, with immaculate water that looks straight out of a post card. It is home to a beautiful coral with heaps of fish and other marine life, which you can gaze at on a fun snorkelling day trip.
Kangaroo Island – SA
There is lots to see in South Australia, but if you only have a few days to spend, we recommend heading to Kangaroo Island to experience a laid-back yet exciting wildlife environment! This is the perfect spot to really get a little bit of all the things that make Australia amazing; beautiful beaches, iconic koalas, kangaroos, many other wildlife animals, forests and bush, and outstanding landscapes. If you wish to experience all of the fun in one place while relaxing and spending time outdoors, Kangaroo Island is certainly the best place to do so!
