Top 5 Reasons to Visit Australia

Top 5 Reasons to Visit Australia

G’day, mate! If you’ve ever wanted to visit Australia, now is the time. After being closed for two years due to COVID, Australia has opened its borders to all vaccinated tourists. Australia is one of the most remote countries in the world. Flights to get there are long. Because of this, you might find it ironic that this distant land is one the most popular places to visit for backpackers, outdoor enthusiasts, and chic travelers.

Here are the top five reasons to save those vacation days and visit Australia.

The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is undeniably one of the most awe-inspiring natural wonders in the world. Visible from space, it is the largest coral reef ecosystem boasting over 2,900 separate reefs. It also has one of the best reputations for the diversity of wildlife. It is home to over 1,500 species of fish and 134 different species of sharks. That’s not to mention the turtles. Swimmers, snorkelers, and divers flock here to have the opportunity to see all the Great Barrier Reef has to offer.


You might not think a giant rock covering eight kilometers of land would be breathtaking, but it is. Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is such a unique structure that the Anangu tribe, an Aboriginal people of Australia, have considered it a sacred site for 10,000 years or more. When visiting, be sure to take a tour from a member of the Anangu people and participate in a dot-painting experience to understand Uluru’s power truly.

The Beaches

It would only be possible to have a list of reasons to visit Australia by mentioning the beaches. With over 16,000 miles of coastline, there are plenty of spots from which to choose. The beauty of Australia’s beaches sets them apart from the rest of the world. Picture a pristine stretch of sand and crystal-clear waters. That’s what Australia’s beaches offer.

Great Ocean Road

Great Ocean Road is one of the world’s most spectacular road trips. Spanning 248 miles, it takes travelers through the greater part of the surf coast. Towering cliffs plunge to wild beaches below. Make sure to stop the car long enough to see the Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, and take a short hike at Port Campbell Discovery Walk.

Kangaroo Island

Wildlife lovers will want to visit this island eight miles off the South Australian coast. It is home to koalas, penguins, seals, and, you guessed it, kangaroos. This peaceful island has few settlements and no public transportation, so plan to rent a car or go with a tour group.
