Keep reading to discover exactly why you should pay Australia a visit this year.
1. For the Natural Beauty
The Australian natural beauty got a mention in the intro.
But the extent of stunning sights and scenery here deserves further elaboration.
This enormous country is saturated with beauty; every state of Australia has landmarks and attractions that blow visitors away.
National Parks, desert islands, secluded coves, vast open expanses of land, towering peaks, ocean reefs, waterfalls, lakes, and rivers…it’s all there, just waiting to be discovered.
Even the mass of untouched red dirt in the middle bears its own kind of appeal. Few other places in the world have this much space on offer. It’s truly a sight to behold.
2. For the Beaches
You can’t have a discussion about Aussie attractions and not mention the beaches.
Beach-life is just built into the Australian psyche.
Drive along the coastlines and it isn’t hard to understand why. This country is spoiled in terms of its access to stunning stretches of sand and sea. Beaches are everywhere, and almost all of them are matched in terms of beauty.
This is the land of suntans, surfing, and BBQs on the beach.
Golden-haired gods walk along the sands with surfboards tucked under their arms.
Families laugh and joke about, cooking their dinner on the public BBQs. The sun blares down from above, coating the air with a soft and yellowy-tinge.
Come to Australia, head to the beach, and you’ll never want to leave.
3. For the Natural Wonders
The natural beauty is one thing.
But the natural wonders in Australia are another altogether.
This enormous country is host to some of the world’s most iconic attractions, such as the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru. These two places hold a special appeal and draw countless visitors from across the globe each year.
Both provide unforgettable experiences to lucky visitors and certainly warrant their world-famous status. Yet they’re only two such examples of the wonder on offer here.
Everywhere you go there’s another mindboggling attraction.
The Whitsundays, Fraser Island, Grampians National Park, the Blue Mountains…the list goes on and on and on.
4. For the Weather
Fancy a dose of vitamin D?
Well, few countries on earth get as much sunshine as Australia. Heck, it’s even got a place called the Sunshine Coast…
The weather here does vary by season and location. Spend the winter in Victoria and you’ll certainly feel the cold! However, there’s almost always somewhere you can go to get the sun.
For example, winter in Victoria is the best time to be up north in Queensland and the Northern Territory. The climate at that time is both bearable and dry; wait until summer and you’ll get 100% humidity and tropical downpours!
Come to Australia and you can chase the sun all-year-round.
5. For the Fun-Loving Aussie Locals
Australians know how to have a good time.
The unparalleled Aussie sense of humor means a joke (usually at your expense, but always in good humor!) is never far away. People here don’t take themselves too seriously, and they’re always happy to lend a hand and offer support when you need it.
More than anything, though, Australians are a laid back bunch. It’s a land where everything is “too easy”, and “no worries”. And, if anything’s going remotely wrong, then you’ll hear a round of “she’ll be right” to calm you down.
Get ready to meet some of the funniest, most relaxed, and irresistibly cheeky people in the world.
6. For the Wildlife
Kangaroos and koalas.
For wildlife lovers, those two words might be all the persuasion you need to visit Australia!
These cute and lovable animals are ubiquitous down under.
You’ll see kangaroos, with their joeys held snugly in their pouches, hopping around everywhere; look upward in certain parts of the country and the koalas will be munching away happily on their eucalyptus leaves.
That’s only a minute sample of the wildlife on offer in Australia though. Everywhere you look there’s a new and fascinating animal to see. Cockatoos screech in the trees, lizards scurry at your feet, and possums scurry around at night.
Of course, there’s a lot of wildlife you might not be so happy to meet (think snakes, spiders, and crocodiles…). But we’ll forget about those for now!
7. For the Buzzing Cities
Australia isn’t just natural beauty and empty expanses of red dirt.
There are some electric concrete jungles to visit as well. The likes of Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth are all Aussie cities that’ll charm your socks off.
Stay in any of these places and you’ll experience thriving metropolises, filled with their own unique atmospheres, cultures, people, and attractions.
Take Sydney, for example.
There’s a marina to amble around (and boats for hire), coastal walks to enjoy, stunning beaches to relax upon, a vibrant culture to immerse yourself into, and architectural icons (like the Opera House).
The city locations are often desirable in their own right; sandwiches between ocean and mountains, with easy access to national parks (and the beauty there-in).
