Given the opportunity, we’d all go and spend weeks and weeks exploring every corner of Australia. There is so much to see and do in the land down under that it is perfectly reasonable to spend years exploring. However, we don’t all have the luxury of limitless time off from work and responsibilities at home. This is where this guide comes in – four unmissable things to see or do in Australia for those of you who are visiting the country on a flying visit:
Uluru (otherwise known as Ayre’s Rock)
Uluru is one of the most famous landmarks that Australia has to offer and it is easy to see why. A large sandstone formation, Uluru is roughly 200 miles South-West of Alice Springs. It is believed to be approximately 700 million years old and is sacred to indigenous Australians; consequently it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Uluru is located in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and is the perfect mix of cultural heritage and stunning scenery – it is well worth a visit.
Take a gamble on the famous Gold Coast
The casinos in Australia’s Gold Coast, such as Jupiters Casino, are world famous and well worth a visit. Of course, before you visit them and find yourself playing opposite the pros it might be an idea to visit an online casino such as aud.SpinPalace.com to brush up on your skills by playing poker or blackjack from the comfort of your hotel room. That way you will increase your chances of bringing home some winnings to spend on the rest of your travels.
The Sydney Opera House
Whilst opera might not be everyone’s cup of tea, if you’re ever going to see one there is only one opera house worth visiting. Known for its distinctive architecture, the Sydney Opera House was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon and is considered to be Australia’s most recognisable landmark. If you’re not interested in seeing a performance there, you could always take one of the guided tours which are available in a number of languages.
Dive down and see the Great Barrier Reef
This is an essential stop for any visitor to Australia who is interested in wildlife. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world located off of the coast of Queensland. There is such a large diversity of life there – with individual corals as well as fish, dolphins, turtles, and plants. It has been listed as one of the seven natural wonders of the world by CNN – so be sure to pack an underwater camera!
