Sydney is wonderful. Where else could you enjoy unique architecture, great beaches and the eucalyptus-scented Blue Mountains. Eastern Australia is full of great places to visit, such as the Great Ocean Road, the pristine nature of Tasmania or coral at the Great Barrier Reef.
After landing at the other side of the world, you will spend a day discovering the city centre of Sydney. Relax the next day at its beaches and spend another walking through the unique Blue Mountains. After this, you will think you have seen three different worlds, but that is only Sydney and its surroundings.
Fly to Melbourne, which is regularly voted as one of the best cities to live in. Rent a car and drive along the Great Ocean Road with breathtaking views of the ocean, reaching the Twelve Apostles National Park just in time for sunset. Get back here the next day have a great walk on a local beach.
A short flight further south to Tasmania will take you to an island of great food and rough coastlines. In certain months, you can touch Australian snow after a hike to the top of Mount Wellington. Or drive here in a car after sunset to enjoy great scenery with Hobart nightlights at your fingertips. Trekking in Freycinet National Park and the Bay of Fires will only add more great pictures to your album.
So where to go next? It’s time to visit northern Queensland. The best adventure here is diving at the Great Barrier Reef, seconded by Millaa or Barron Falls and white sand beaches around Cape Tribulation.
