Reasons why Australia should be on your travel list

Reasons why Australia should be on your travel list

Today we are going to look into the most important reasons why Australia should be on your travel list.

When we say Australia, we mostly think about the symbols it stands for: kangaroos (locally called joeys), akubra hats, burning sun and farming. Nevertheless, with its history, so inextricably linked to the destiny of the British Empire, Australia is a land that mixes the aboriginal culture with European mores.

Here is what this mix created:

Melbourne is the fourth most expensive city in the world, established in 1803, but inhabited for 40.000 years by aboriginals. Here you can visit the Queen Victoria Market, the Zoo, the Royal Botanical Gardens or admire the street art.

Capital city of Australia? I know what you’re thinking…. it’s Cambera! (No, not Sydney). Predictably enough though, Sydney is our next stop. People come here for the fun on the beach and for the nightlife. But there are also those who enjoy outdoors activities, such as hiking in the Blue Mountains, under 2 hours’ drive from the city.

An exciting one-day trip to one of the islands surrounding Australia might be a wonderful plan, especially if you are traveling with your family. On Phillip Island, you can see flightless clumsy cute birds wearing tuxes. No, we haven’t gone crazy; we are talking about penguins, who abound here and who will welcome you proudly on their island.

You can also interact with koalas, wombats and kangaroos in Australia in one of the natural resorts, like the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane. You can also do a tour of the Dunedin and Otago Peninsula to observe the wildlife.

Australia is a land of marvel, a beautiful universe most probably completely different from what your everyday life is. We suggest you rent a car in Australia if you want to see the country in-depth.
