The huge country and continent of Australia covers an area of over 7.9 million km² – equating to 30 times the size of the United Kingdom and 58 times the size of Greece!
Boasting gorgeous beaches (with some of the longest stretches of sand-covered coastline in the world), modern cities, over 500 national parks and an array of attractions and activities – there’s simply too much to do on a holiday here.
We absolutely love this diverse destination – from its natural beauties of rainforests and deserts to its vibrant nightlife across buzzing, major cities.
Check out our six sights to add to your Australia bucket list – and try to resist planning your holiday down under!
The Twelve Apostles
The Twelve Apostles is a beautiful collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, located in south-east State of Victoria. The magnificent stacks are a popular tourist attraction today, originally formed by continuous erosion of limestone cliffs, leaving them up to 50 metres high. Located around 275 kilometres west of Melbourne, the Twelve Apostles are a must-see on your Australian break, especially at sunrise or sunset!
Ayers Rock, also known as Uluru, is one of Australia’s most famous natural icons, as a massive sandstone mountain located in the heart of the Northern Territory’s ‘Red Centre’. This natural beauty and UNESCO World Heritage Site is thought to have formed over 550 million years ago and attracts thousands of tourists each year! The mountain is located around 460 kilometres south-west of the remote town of Alice Springs.
Kakadu National Park
Amazingly, almost four percent of Australia’s land areas are designated as national parkland! Kakadu National Park is a brilliant destination for those who enjoy exploring natural beauties across the continent, located in Australia’s Northern Territory. The park boasts diverse terrains, including wetlands, rivers and sandstone escarpments and is home to over 2,000 plant species and wildlife. The attraction is the largest national park in the country, covering almost 2,000 square kilometres (nearly half the size of Switzerland!)
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Sydney Harbour Bridge is a spectacular bridge made from steel, spanning at a maximum height of 134 metres across Sydney Harbour. As the world’s tallest steel arch bridge, this impressive landmark is a must-see on your Australian break! By foot, bike, boat or plane – you’re sure to appreciate the beauty of this architectural icon.
Australian War Memorial
Located in Australia’s beautiful capital city, Canberra, the Australian War Memorial is a moving sight to see, as the country’s national symbol to the members of its armed forces who died or participated in past wars. Visitors can pay tribute and learn about the continent’s history at the memorial’s extensive national military museum here, as well as in its outdoor sculpture garden.
Sydney Tower is unmissable on a holiday to Australia’s east coast, as the city’s tallest structure and the second tallest observation tower in the Southern Hemisphere. The 20th century tower stands at over 300 metres above the Sydney central business district, offering fantastic, panoramic views from its observation desk. Understandably, this impressive piece of architecture is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city, and not to be missed!
