Although long time ago, the USA was known as the land of opportunities, today the focus is shifting to the east. While Asian countries are on an incredible streak of economic development, they still fall behind in many aspects of everyday day. Australia, on the other hand, is one of the most promising countries in the world. It has only about 30 million inhabitants and a lot of natural space for taking newcomers. It is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, mostly thanks to its unique climate, which is a mixture of the Mediterranean and desert climate. For those who have been craving for an original vacation, this country is a great option. Let’s see how to take a rest in Australia and relax from all the tensions we all have on a daily level.
Australia is definitely a pet of gods. In the old times, when continents were getting natural beauties, Australia got a bigger portion. You can choose whether you would like to see original desert rocks, breath-taking beaches or unique biological systems.
This magnificent rock, which is also known as Ayers Rock, is situated in the very heart of the Australian continent. Uluru is an Aboriginal word. There have been proofs that the Aborigines lived in the vicinity of this huge stone about 10,000 years ago. It is believed that it served as an object of pray and admiration for these people. Apart from having the circumference of about 10 km, this rock is special for its monolith and compact character.
* The Great Barrier Reef
Lying northeast off the Australian coast, this magnificent ecosystem is a rarity on the global level. This heap of atolls and corals is the only living organism that can be seen from the space, which makes it a natural counterpart of the Chinese Wall. The Great Barrier Reef has been under the protection of UNESCO, as well. However, its eco balance has been changed over the last few years and Australian authorities are trying to reduce the number of tourist visits to this fantastic beauty.
History and culture
Australia might be the oldest continent, but it does not dawdle behind its older relatives. It has a lot of things to offer. The Aussies had to make up for the fact that their development started after many other countries. However, they are already in front of many of the Old-World countries.
Although Melbourne is most known for its Gland Slam tennis tournament, the biggest city of Victoria State has many other things to offer. First of all, it is placed at the ocean, so this sole fact generates many things to see and do. One of such ocean-related attractions is the Great Ocean Road, which is a great road and, more importantly, it gives an incredible view of the ocean and high cliffs that dominate the area below the road. It is a place where California meets Ireland.
Also, if you want to take a look at Melbourne and all its beautiful attractions from the air, do not miss to visit Eureka Skydeck, which is situated on the top of the Eureka Tower – one of the highest buildings in the southern hemisphere.
The largest city of Australia and the capital of New South Wales State, Sydney is definitely a must-see city on the global level. Due to great transportation connections with the rest of the country, choosing Sydney as a base in Australia might be the best choice. You can choose between boutique hotels Sydney offers and get the best accommodation.
Melbourne has the Eureka Skydeck, but Sydney still dominates its rival with the Sydney Harbor Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Of course, Sydney beaches, like Coogee and Bondi, must be visited by newcomers to this great continent.
Australia offers so many things that it is impossible to see everything in one stay. For those who visit Australia for the first time, this is more than enough. Have a nice stay in Down Under and come back again for more interesting natural beauties and other attractions.
