    A continent in its own right, Australia’s landscapes range from amazing beaches to the red deserts of the Outback and everything in between. I and my cousin Mel have been travelling around the country since our college days, and it has been the best decision ever! Till date, we have trodden along many paths of adventure, wonder and learning. Read along to take a look at some of our recommendations of some of the best Aussie destinations to make the most of your holiday.   

    Although too cliched to be on an Aussie itinerary, we believe Sydney Harbour will never lose its charisma, regardless of how many times you’ve visited. For that much-needed break from your monotonous life, the city offers many outdoor activities. Walk down to the world-famous harbour to enjoy a Sydney Harbour lunch cruise or dine at one of the waterfront restaurants in the area for a wonderful panorama of the harbour scene. The stunning views combined with the delectable variety of food served on board a lunch cruise in Sydney will surely make a memorable day for you. 


    Some other popular activities you could try in Sydney include climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, a morning kayak along the harbour waters, watching a performance at the Opera House, visiting the animals at Taronga Zoo, and more. Needless to say, the city is one of the most happening places in the country that never disappoints its visitors. If you have sufficient time to spend in Sydney, grab the opportunity to explore further afield. Take a trip to see the striking Three Sisters at the Blue Mountains or go for a wine tasting tour in the Hunter Valley and the list goes on. 


    Our next top destination for you is Cairns in Queensland, where you’ll find as much life and colours underwater as you’ll see on land. Sign up for a sightseeing cruise or a snorkelling tour on the reef-laden waters along the Great Barrier Reef stretch to marvel at Mother Nature’s marvellous creations. To be honest, Cairns has been one of those places that gave us the best cherishable moments for life than any other destination. Besides the Great Barrier Reef, we urge you to explore the ancient Daintree Rainforest, a world heritage site and the life of the local indigenous people who have symbiotically lived in the area for thousands of years. 


    No Aussie vacation is complete without a trip to the red wilderness of the Northern Territory, home to the great monolith — the Ayers Rock— in the Red Centre. For the uninitiated vacationer, we recommend visiting the Cultural Centre within the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Here you will get a proper glimpse into the cultural significance of the local Anangu people to the Uluru and Kata Tjuta people. And since we love saving the best for the last, we recommend you to end your evening at the magnificent Ayers Rock. Reach the spot in time for the breathtaking spectacle that is sunset over Uluru and its ranges and watch how the reddish hue changes with the light. 


    Whatever clime or surrounds your heart yearns to be in, Australia has it all. The country also boasts of an efficient network of internal flights, which makes it easy for us to get around places. Here are some more destinations you may want to visit when you find the time: Atherton Tablelands, Hamilton Island, Sunshine Coast, Lamington National Park, Rottnest Island, and so on.   


    Since it isn’t possible to list all our favourite Aussie destinations in one go, we’d like to wrap up this roster for now. We hope you find this article helpful.
