Australia's outback is an amber amazon, erupting with stark, prehistoric rock formations and the crinkled outcrops. These eerily bare scenes are all the more breathtaking when you consider the Centuries of Aboriginal culture shifting through the sands. Their beauty is not limited to the daytime either; under the moonlight these lunar landscapes can look terrifically magical. With countless World Heritage Sites and National Parks to choose from these supernatural sites are only made more wondrous by their abundance. In particular, Mungo National Park and Kings Canyon are particularly immersive for those looking for a true outback experience. As it is so big Australia has 13 different time zones, with cities in the proximity of Canberra 9 hours ahead.
On the other side of this extreme environment is Australia's gorgeous coastlines. Typically holiday makers can enjoy various adventure activities. The surfing is unrivalled and attracts various worldwide competitions, perhaps most spectacular though is the Great Barrier Reef; as the largest thing on Earth, this 2,300km ecosystem is home to some of the most incredible marine life including sharks, dolphins and sea turtles. Labelled as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, tourism must be practiced responsibly in order to preserve its infinite wonders. Australia's cities are brimming with the cool vibes it is famous for with destinations like Perth, Melbourne and Sydney offering their own quirky attributes to Australia's bohemian buzz. More specifically, be surprised by the arts and culture of these cosmopolitan cities. A trip including, the Hunter Valley and the Blue Mountains is an ideal introduction to Australia’s hip cities, wonderful wines and beautiful landscapes.
