Known for its glorious beaches, friendly locals & an abundance of wildlife; there truly is so much to soak up in this amazing country. Here are the top 5 sights you should see whilst in Australia.

Grab a snorkel and see plenty of wildlife in the largest coral reef system in the world. If you’re feeling a little more adventorous choose to scuba dive or Scuba doo! Tours book up fast so be sure to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

2 Great Ocean Road

A quintessential Australian roadtrip situated 240-km along the south-eastern coastline. Check out companies like Apollo or Jucy for campervan hire. If you’re on a tight budget these companies offer campervan relocations which could help you save considerably.

I visited the 12 Apostles on a rainy day but still got to witness these amazing rock stacks. Only 8 of the original 12 are remaining due to continous erosion.

3 Monkey Mia

Around 530 miles north of Perth, Monkey Mia truly is unforgettable. Wild dolphins inhabit the area and make a regular appearance. Get there between 7:45am-midday and you can witness the trainers feeding them. Also look out for turtles, emus and so much more wildlife!

If the animals aren’t enough to tempt you, enjoy a day relaxing on the beach or enjoy some paddle boarding or kayaking in the crystal-clear waters. A Monkey Mia day permit costs AU$15 per person which is worth every penny!

4 Whitsundays/Airlie Beach

The coastal town of Airlie beach is the perfect gateway to access the Whitsundays. Find plenty of restaurants, cafes and accomodation here.

Book on to a boat tour to see the Whitsundays in all its glory. Approximately 14 minutes from Airlie beach, Whitehaven beach is located on Whitsunday Island. Here you’ll find spectacular views, bright-blue waters and crisp-white sand.

5 Uluru/Ayers Rock

Uluru or Ayers Rock is situated in the Northern Territory. There are plenty of paid and free activities to partake in. My favourites were camel riding, stargazing and a bush food experience. Watching sunrise and sunset was a true highlight. Read more about my experience & how to visit on a budget here.
