Let’s face it: we’re pretty darn lucky to live down under. But how much of beautiful Australia have you actually seen? If you’re not sure what to see in Australia, get to know your own backyard by adding these top destinations to your travel bucket list.
1. The Daintree Rainforest, Far North Queensland
Filled with ancient trees and pristine waterways, the Daintree Rainforest is rated among Australia’s prettiest landscapes. As the oldest continually surviving rainforest in the country, it’s a haven for endangered animals and rare plant species.
Covering 1,200 square kilometres, the Daintree Rainforest is situated just outside the city of Cairns. It’s easy to access via the Captain Cook Highway, so you can spend the day immersed in nature before heading back to the comforts of civilisation.
Looking for somewhere to stay in Far North Queensland? Ingenia Holidays Cairns Coconut has camping grounds, caravan sites and cabins.
2. The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland
While you’re in Far North Queensland, you’d be bonkers not to check out the Great Barrier Reef. A top destination for tourists, it’s a must-see for both Aussies and international visitors. Stretching for over 2,000 kilometres through the Coral Sea, the reef is located around an hour’s boat ride from the mainland.
Home to thousands of species of fish and colourful coral, this natural wonder is so large it’s the only living thing that can be seen from space (just imagine how spectacular it looks up close).
3. The Blue Mountains, New South Wales
If you feel like escaping the bright lights of Sydney, the Blue Mountains encompass some of the most spectacular scenery in Australia. Blanketed in eucalyptus trees, this sprawling mountain range can be found just west of Sydney’s metropolitan area. The Blue Mountains region is made up of scenic highways, sheer cliffs, waterfalls and walking tracks, making it a road tripper’s dream destination.
Spend your next holiday in the foothills of the Blue Mountains by staying at Ingenia Holidays Napean River.
4. The Hunter Valley, New South Wales
Wine regions can be found scattered throughout Australia’s countryside, but there’s something special about the Hunter Valley. Maybe it’s the town’s reputation for producing top-notch Shiraz, or the fact its rich past dates back to the 1800s? Whether you’re visiting for the history or the vino, you’re sure to fall in love with this region.
Get to know the Hunter region during your next holiday by making yourself at home at Ingenia Holidays Hunter Valley.
5. Noosa National Park, Queensland
Situated on the southern end of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, Noosa National Park is an oasis of golden sand and turquoise water bordered by a coastal rainforest. In contrast to the region’s urban area, which is filled with popular surf beaches and bustling cafés, Noosa National Park has pockets of peaceful scenery and hidden expanses of coastline.
To make Noosa National Park the backdrop for your next holiday, book a place to stay at Ingenia Holidays Noosa.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all this travel inspiration, there’s no need to stress. Australia isn’t going anywhere, so you have plenty of time to tick these destinations off your travel bucket list.
