And here no one would talk of beach surfing at Sydney Opera or magnificent museums in Brisbane or about the harbors, seafood, garden & parks in the city of Sydney, or Adelaide’s art festivals and 1869 food hall or Perth’s well-known beaches and ports. Not every time, city lights are enough to please our minds or chill our mood. Sometimes, all you need is pull your boots on and get stuck in through rainforest, across open plains, over the mountains ridges and beside lakes and oceans. Something that would play Tame Impala’s “solitude is bliss” in your mind and cause a stir to unravel the places worth your holidays.A plan or a place first? To avoid you from getting into a chicken and egg situation, we will help you with the list of some amazing hiking places in Australia that you will want to jump into right then.
