The land down under is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the entire world. The world’s largest island is also a country, and its own continent. In a place so large, it can be incredibly difficult to know what to see or do. But, it’s not for a lack of options.
Australia is rich with history, being one of the oldest Aboriginal cultures in the world. The vast majority of the country’s population is spread amongst the thousands of miles of coastline. However, should one venture deeper towards the interior of the island, they’ll be able to see more of a dichotomy of cultures; a unique mix of modern and Aboriginal traditions. If you visit Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory, you can see some amazing rock art that dates back more than 20,000 years. It is also a great place to see a wide variety of wildlife and landscapes like floodplains.
For something that’s a little more “touristy”, look no further than the bigger cities like Melbourne or Sydney. Melbourne has some amazing sites such as the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the National Gallery of Victoria, and the Eureka Skydeck. For those who decide to hang out in Sydney instead, you obviously can check out the world famous Sydney Opera House, check out one of the near 1,000 stalls along Paddy’s Market, or simply enjoy a day at Bondi Beach.
