After all, there is so much to do and see, spending your life in one place can feel like you really are missing out on so much. One such place that has an abundance of man-made and natural wonders to behold is Australia. The land down under where the sun shines all year round and you can experience historical culture alongside some modern marvels.

The Great Barrier Reef

There is a reason this pops up on pretty much every Australia focussed travel bucket list. The reef is a natural wonder that is an ecosystem stretching 1,430 miles long. Home to over 600 types of hard and soft coral, The Great Barrier Reef is also home to countless species of dolphins, sharks, turtles and tropical fish. As you would expect, laws are in place protecting the reef from human visitors to make sure the balance of the ecosystem remains as it should and that the reef and its inhabitants are protected.

Sydney Harbour

One of the most recognisable sights in Australia, the Sydney Harbour is infamous. Home to the Sydney Opera House and  The Harbour Bridge, you can visit Sydney Harbour by land or boat and it is the perfect place to take in some sightseeing opportunities and really indulge your inner tourist!

Melbourne

Not just one particular part of it either. Whether you are looking for late night things to do in Melbourne, family-friendly activities or simply soaking up the atmosphere, Melbourne has something for everyone. Grab one of Melbourne's world-famous flat white coffees, head to the National Gallery of Victoria or enjoy a delicious rooftop cocktail.

Great Ocean Road

Exactly what it says it is. 152 miles of stunning scenery along Australia's coastline from Torquay to Allansford. On your drive, you can catch some of the country's most famous landmarks as you take a drive on what is possibly one of the most beautiful routes in the country.

The Twelve Apostles

Another renowned natural wonder, The Twelve Apostles are eight limestone pillars that appear to be drifting on out to sea. Once upon a time, they were attached to land however due to erosion they are now adrift. They are a stunning representation of how the elements can drastically change the landscape without interference from man.

Kangaroo Island

For the animal lovers why not take a trip to Kangaroo Island, the third-largest island off the main coast of Australia?% With over 300 miles of coastline, Kangaroo Island is a haven for anyone who loves animals where you can not only see kangaroos but also koalas, sea lions and more.
