10 Beautiful Places in Australia

The continent that has been unseen by the western world until just a few centuries ago hides a myriad of treasures for both the eyes and the mind. It’s a melting pot of cultures, thanks to people coming from all over the world and establishing themselves in here and also a kaleidoscopic spectacle of amazing landscapes. Both man and nature did a great job in sculpting this fantastic Continent. We decided to give you a glimpse of what that means by presenting you 10 of the most beautiful places Australia has to offer.



1. Kakadu National Park, Alligator Rivers Region, Northern Territory

Almost 20,000 square kilometres of wildlife surrounding The Ranger Uranium Mine (one of the most productive in the world) are waiting to be explored by curious and adventurous eyes. Four major river systems, six major landforms and a remarkably rich variety of flora and fauna make of this Park a real natural treasure. The site is also renowned for its richness in aboriginal sites of cultural importance. Thus, it’s not a surprise that it has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

2. Daintree Rainforest, Queensland

The largest continuous tropical forest region on the continent, growing right on the edge of the sea, named after a geologist and a photographer of the 19th century. The climate and the topography of the area contributed to the development of one of the most complex ecosystems on Earth. The place is home for some of the rarest and most primitive species of plants. Magnificent sceneries and sparkling waterfalls make it a must see spot!

3. Tasmania

If getting muddy is your thing, than start backpacking and go straight for Tasmania’s wilderness. Seeing Mount Roland shaping the horizon from the comfortable position offered by a hotel should be just the starting point of your adventure. You should really not miss the opportunity of trekking and rafting at the Cataract Gorge, to then take a break and feel rejuvenated at Hastings Thermal Pools, while also visiting the surrounding caves. Feel both the natural and the anthropological diversity at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, a place hosting not only myriads of plants, but also supporting many local artistic festivals.

4. Uluru/ Ayers Rock

We are talking about a famous large sandstone rock formation dominating the softly shaped landscape of the Northern Territory, a natural wonder considered sacred by the aboriginal people of Anangu. Ancient paintings decorate the rock caves, while the plethora of springs function as a source of serenity for the species inhabiting this incredible natural landmark. An inselberg shaped by the winds and the generous rainfall.

6. Sydney, New South Wales

The most populous city in the whole Oceania, Sydney also features one of the largest natural harbours in the world. Multicultural is the word that best describes its fragrance. Radiocarbon dating suggests that the area has been inhabited since at least 30,000 years ago, the evidence of the ancient aboriginal civilizations now being available for the public at Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Among the most visited architectural beauties of the city, we must certainly mention the Sydney Opera House, spreading music over the oceans.

9. Fraser Island

Mangrove forests, swamps, eucalyptus woodlands and rainforests surrounded by one of the most beautiful beaches on Earth make of this island a must see for sure. Dingoes wondering in their natural habitat act like a mascot for the place, being one of the main reasons people reach the area.

10. Dampier salt flats of Pilbara


Otherworldly, really. A mirror for the skies, a mirror for the souls. No matter if you reach them by foot or admire them from the air, these salt flats will paint your way on a voyage to another universe. You will feel like losing yourself in the abyssal blue of the skies reflected on the lands.
