1. The Great Barrier Reef:
It is said that the only living thing that is visible from the space is the Great Barrier Reef near the Queensland coast in Australia. World’s largest reef system, the Great Barrier Reef is stretches a gigantic 3000 kilometres off of the Queensland coast. Who wouldn’t want to do a scuba diving trip here?
2. Mackenzie Falls:
One of the biggest waterfalls in the world, the Mackenzie falls has thousands of gallons of water dropping to a height of 30 meters into the gorge, throughout the year. Want to look at rainbows without rainfall? Head to Mackenzie Falls right now!
3. Fraser Island:
Touted as the world’s largest sand island, Fraser Island is 123 kilometres in length and up to 22 kilometres in width. Fraser Island has got it all, from rainforests to 240 metres high sand dunes, more than 100 freshwater lakes and a wildlife as diverse as the rest of the Australia.
4. Blue Mountains:
No, they are not blue! But that doesn’t stop Blue Mountains from being one of the most picturesque natural wonders of Australia. The Blue Mountains are home to some of the world’s oldest and rarest species of plants like the Wollemi Pines.
5. The Twelve Apostles:
Not the biblical figures but limestone stacks created by erosion off the Victorian Coast. Although the name states 12, they were only 9 stacks when named and with time and erosion there are only eight left. Hurry up, you won’t want to miss the remaining ones.
6. The Pinnacles:
Located north of Perth, The Pinnacles are limestone formations that were created 30,000 years ago! Feeling old yet? The pinnacles rise up to several metres above the sand in Nambung National Park, which is called home by the grey kangaroos, reptiles and emus!
Also known as Ayers rock, Uluru is a sacred site to the indigenous Anangu tribe of Australia. The gigantic sandstone monolith is almost 348 metres high and has a circumference of 9.4 kilometres. It is known for the different hues specially during sunrise and sunset.
