Highlights of Australia: Looking Beyond the Obvious

Steven Gyford by
Categories: Australia Tags: No Tags

In our final weekday of the #Australia takeover, we're looking at where to go and what to do, away from the usual. These are the highlights that you might not be aware of down under!

  New South Wales is an area featuring breathtaking natural treasures, endless unspoilt beaches and, of course, the bustling city of Sydney. Explore the famous Bondi Beach, but remember that it is only ever a day trip away from World Heritage Sites such as the Blue Mountains and enticing Hunter Valley Wineries. Head north to see the gorgeous Coffs Harbour and Byron Bay, or head south and swim with dolphins in Jervis Bay. There's also the Australian Alps and Mungo National Park to see too!

 

 

In the Northern Territory you can truly get lost in the vast stretches of natural beauty, rich in Aboriginal history. Tropical Darwin is your gateway to Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park, Katherine Gorge and the communities of Tiwi Islands. Beyond the obvious, yet undoubtedly beautiful, Uluru you can discover the Red Centre attractions of Kings Canyon, Devils Marbles and the Larapinta Trail (above) which are equally mesmerising.

 

 

In Western Australia,  you can explore the blissful beaches of Perth, but beyond that you can discover Rottnest Island by boat or by air for advantageous views of the area. Head south to enjoy a tipple at the Margaret River wineries or to discover the completely unique pink lake. North, on the other hand, holds rugged scenery and the marine treasures of Monkey Mia - an absolute must for visitors of this area.

 

 

Everybody loves Tropical North Queensland because of its access to the stunning Great Barrier Reef, even though the cuisine draw many visitors away. It's not just the food that keeps visitor's feet on dry land here though. There are plenty of chances to explore above the water too. The Gulf Savannah (above) holds many natural attractions too, making it more than worthwhile taking the time to explore it. A vast and rugged stretch of land, the gulf's wide, open spaces are separated by expansive gorges and lava tubes which will more than peak your interest. Caves, fossil fields and hot springs add yet more appeal to this unique part of the world.

 

 

Tropical North Queensland is a place where hearts start racing. Be it from witnessing unbelievable sights, or from adrenaline-pumping activities, which can add a whole new level of excitement to your trip. These activities range from simply hopping on a raft for a leisurely paddle, to a thrilling skydive over Cairns - for an unrivalled view. Sitting in-between the two on the 'excitement scale' are mountain bike trails, bungee jumps, kayak trails and almost obligatory snorkel sessions.

 

Of course, there's plenty more to discover when you #ExploreTNQ including aboriginal culture, whale watching, sightseeing and even shopping opportunities! It's all just too much for a single blog post though...
