Australia popularly referred to as the ‘land down under’ is a heady mix of the ancient with the modern. A continent scattered with thousands of stunning islands, hiding history’s secrets and nature’s gems. Indigenous people known as aborigines lived on the continent thousands of years before it was discovered by Europeans.
One of the top things to do in Australia is to unravel its historical mysteries at the Kakadu National Park. Kakadu is one of the most amazing national parks on earth, concealing intriguing rock art that dates back to 20,000 years. It has been the home of the aboriginal people for at least 40,000 years. However, the vast park is not all about the indigenous people but also about breathtaking vistas. Waterfalls tumble down steep rocks ending in inviting waters whilst towering sandstone pillars rise dramatically to challenge the best.
Another towering wonder that is a must-see in Australia is the great Uluru. The massive sacred rock rising from the surroundings leaves a deep impression on all who visit. It’s no surprise then that it is one of the most revered sites of the indigenous Pitjantjatjara people who it belongs to. Changing color with the rise and fall of the sun, this magnificent sandstone rock deserves its place on the UNESCO list. 25km west of Uluru is also the Kata Tjuta another impressive sight.
Australia has a bounty of natural wonders, some that are hidden on distant islands such as the Rottnest or the Whitsundays, or one that is glaringly visible even from the sky. The Great Barrier Reef which stretches along the coast of Queensland is one of the most visited areas in the country. The kaleidoscope of color from the thousands of corals and marine life will leave you wonderstruck.
Australian cities are equally mesmerizing with iconic sights like Sydney‘s Opera House, Hobart‘s Museum of Old & New Art or Melbourne‘s Flinders Street. It’s cities often sit at the top of the world’s most livable or cleanest cities.
