Look no further for vacation inspiration; you can take a trip to one of the world’s most incredible natural sites, right in our own backyard. Take a peek at some of this year’s best Australian holidays at tried and true vacation spots across the country, fit for every type of traveler.
Cradle Mountain, Tasmania
Between the ancient rainforests, rugged mountains and glacial lakes, Cradle Mountain is one of the country’s most iconic wilderness experiences. Make sure to explore the spectacular trails, and keep an eye out for roaming wombats.
Little Beach, Western Australia
Little Beach, in Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve near Albany, is one of many magnificent natural beauties in Western Australia. The beach may be “little” in terms of size, but with its powdery white sand, perfectly blue waves and dramatic rock formations, it sure packs a punch on the senses. Don’t miss the nearby Elephant Rocks of Denmark, a magnificent sight, especially from Elephant Cove.
Hamilton Island, Queensland
Hamilton Island is known for having one of the world’s best hotels — Qualia — but it’s also close to some of the most beautiful natural sites in Australia. Between the world famous Heart Reef and breathtaking beauty of Whitehaven beach to the pure tranquillity and luxury of the island itself, it may prove difficult to leave a paradise like Hamilton Island.
Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory
Kakadu National Park is ideal for those looking for a real escape from reality. Visitors can enjoy the relatively untouched wilderness of the region by stopping by its multiple waterfalls, gorges, and wetlands. The incredible aboriginal history and culture is fascinating, namely the prehistoric rock art found at sites such as Nourlangie, Nanguluwur and Ubirr.
Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia
At 260 kilometres long, the Ningaloo Reef is one of the world’s largest fringing reefs. This World Heritage sight is a magnificent sight to see on its own, but it’s also frequented by some incredible wildlife, such as whale sharks, dolphins, dugongs, whales and manta rays.
