Sydney and Melbourne are generally the first places to stop during a holiday in Australia, but there are many other beautiful places and cities.

Mile Beach, Fraser Island, Burleigh Heads, Apollo Bay and many more are other beaches.


With a low population density and a larger land area than most countries, most urban areas in Australia are spread across mountains, oceans, coasts, reserves of wildlife, rivers and beautiful landscapes.
For high - energy vibrant culture, choose Sydney. The city is renowned for its opera house, world famous zoos, aquariums and lifestyle of the metropolitan area. It's blessed with sunny weather and clear skies and never too cool.
Melbourne has a European flair and is famous among coffee lovers and selected as one of the most livable cities of the world many times.
Adelaide has many famous and beautiful wineries, colonial buildings and stunning wildlife at Kangaroo Island. 
Darwin is famous for lush green national parks and natural surroundings. If you love the outdoorsy lifestyle and spectacular wilderness, then don’t miss Darwin. 
Enjoy the laid-back city of Perth with sunny and warm weather throughout the year and pristine beaches across the Indian Ocean.
Go to Brisbane which has beautiful sunshine weather with local Australian vibes, youthful zeal and diverse destination.  At an hour’s drive, you can go to Gold Coast which is must visit destination of Australia.  Read about Gold Coast Attractions. 
Go for a natural wonders tour in Cairns the gateway to The Great Barrier Reef.
But don’t miss Canberra which is the cool capital of the country. It is a place where you will find cool architectures, museums, and galleries. Architecture lovers would love this capital city.

What you need to know before booking your Holiday to Australia

Ø All non-Australians require a visa to enter Australia
Ø The country is huge and diverse so use local budget local airlines to book flights
Ø Within the cities, there is a wide and very good network of public buses, trains, ferries, and trams. Public transport is cost effective and very efficient. In Sydney check the OPAL card for affordable public transport
Ø Budget-friendly accommodation deals near the city center are difficult to find but I managed to find some cost-efficient options on KAYAK.
Ø As this country is huge, don’t expect to cover all places on the same trip
Ø Check the weather before packing as Australia has opposite season to that of countries from Northern Hemisphere and the climate varies a lot from region to region.
Ø Visit world-class stadiums and sports arenas as local love sports and have earned many accolades and medals in International sports.
Ø Gardens like The Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney or the Botanical Gardens of Melbourne are free 
Ø Some Museums and Art Galleries also have free entry
Ø Melbourne is a foodie paradise and a great place for coffee lovers. Check the Food Market at Victoria’s Market Square. 
Ø Driving is on the left-hand side of the road and their steering wheel is on the right-hand side just like UK, India and some other places.
Ø Carry good sunscreen and apply whenever your skin is exposed to the sun as here there is higher ultraviolet radiation in Australia.
Ø Don’t carry nuts, flowers, seeds, or any other food items into the country as Australia has a strict policy about bringing food items.
And I would suggest this Two weeks Itinerary to Australia for those who are going on Holidays for the first time –
