Top places in Australia

Everybody has different places they like in a country, different things they want to see and do and that they want other people to see and do too. Here is the list of what I liked in Australia, which I think other people should see and do too.

Agree? Disagree? Let me know what you think. What are your favourite places in Australia?


Adelaide
  • Central Market (cheap food)
  • Old Adelaide Gaol
  • Blackeby’s Old Sweet Shop
  • Migration Museum

Airlie Beach
  • Whitsunday Islands, but go for longer than just one day.

Brisbane
  • Mt. Coot-tha lookout and botanical gardens
  • South Bank
  • GOMA
  • Australia Zoo

Byron Bay
  • The lighthouse

Cairns                                                                        
  • Great Barrier Reef, snorkelling is good, but if you can you should go diving and for more than just one day.
  • Kuranda Scenic Railway
  • Tjapukai Cultural Park
  • Daintree Rainforest, get some ice cream from the Daintree Ice Cream Company!

Canberra
  • Lovely city just to walk around in and see all the statues and monuments
  • Mt. Ainslie, it’s pretty cool how you can see how the city is laid out from up there.

Darwin
  • Chinese Temple
  • The termite mounds, just the size of them is really impressive!
  • Mindil Beach Sunset Markets, they are on a Thursday and Sunday night during the dry season.

Fraser Island
  • Lake McKenzie
  • The pinnacles
  • It’s a personal choice, depending on what you want to see, if you want to go just for a day, which is what I did and thought was enough, or more.

Hobart
  • MONA
  • Mt. Wellington
  • Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, or somewhere else where  you can see the Tasmanian devil
  • Port Arthur (I didn’t get to go inside, but I wish I had)
  • Salamanca Market

Melbourne
  • St. Kilda, for Luna park and the penguins in the evening
  • Great Ocean Road
  • Just take a walk around the city and look at the street art

Perth
  • Clock tower, don’t  necessarily go in, just see it
  • King’s gardens
  • Freemantle Prison

Port Macquarie
  • Koala Sanctuary
  • The painted rocks along the esplanade

Sydney
  • The Opera House
  • Fireworks at Darling Harbour at least once (Awesome on Australia Day)
  • Bondi Beach , if you go during winter it’s not too busy
  • Harbour Bridge
  • Go to Manly and laugh yourself silly because of how they use the name

Yulara
  • Uluru
  • Kata Tjuta, everybody seems to focus on Uluru, but the Kata Tjutas are definitely worth a visit as well!

Great new blog look, firstly. I haven't been to all the places you've been but will agree with Melbourne - the street art in the lanes and St Kilda Beach definitely; Sydney, I like The Rocks area; Brisbane is Shorncliffe Pier and The Powerhouse; Adelaide is the area to the south east - the Adelaide Hills, Hahndorf, etc. I wonder where you'll post from next.
