1. Uluru/Ayers Rock

The massive, lonely sandstone rock formation called Uluru is so recognizable that people from all over the world remember it immediately. Apparently situated in the middle of the noonday, the world of waterholes, caves, and ancient art is located at this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which covers both surrounding and rock.

The most magical viewing periods are during sunrise and sunset. When the rock shines in the reflections of vermillion and tango.

 

2. Aboriginal Experiences

If you are searching for full immersion or just a glimpse of the rich culture, the bucket load here offers you many opportunities. A jewel-filled tapestry of myth, dance, music, art, and an intimate connection with this land is Australia’s aboriginal culture with a past that spans over 50,000.

Ancient rock art – both open and secret – is freely poured throughout the country, as are possibilities for indigenous tours.

 

3. The Great Barrier Reef

Take the overnight cruise – no matter how you get there – just make sure you do these things: swim, snorkel, and ride in the glass underneath the boat. The Reef Spans a total of 2500 km (1.500 miles) along and beyond the Queensland coast. And it is considered the world’s largest reef. With some of the only living organisms that can be seen from space.

 

The beaches and waters – in particular the external reef – are beautiful at heart, but you can find yourself in a water marvel, bursting with color and biodiversity, when you duck your head under the clear surface.

 

4. Swim with Whale Sharks

Although the word Shark can scare many of you here,  don’t panic – these docile, up to 12 meters (41 feet) plus filtering creatures in plankton are one of the most gentle giants of the ocean. Nevertheless, it is impossible, even when recognizing that you’re not on the menu, for your heart  not skip a beat or two. Expect catching a snorkel eye with a mouth opened toward you – the mouth which is 1,5 m (4 ft, 11 in.) in diameter.

Snorkeling with the largest fish on the planet is not anything that you can overlook hurriedly and anything at Ningaloo Reef, the largest fringing reef on earth, is possible in West Australia.

 

5. Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb

You will nevertheless be breathless by the 360° panoramic view of Sydney, the Blue Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean.
