The 4 Places That You Must See in Australia

Whenever we talk to readers about where they want to travel now, Australia always comes up near the top of the list. Yes, this country that is also a continent captures the imagination in a way that hardly anywhere else on the planet can. But where should you visit in a place so vast? Here is a collection that we have put together of the four places that you simply cannot miss in Australia, but feel free to add on to this as you see fit.



The whole 'Sydney is New York City and Melbourne is Chicago' comparison may, in fact, be inaccurate, but we must admit that it has made a small impression on many of our traveling friends. As a result, we recommend Melbourne for all trips to Australia. The reputation of Melbourne is that it’s a friendly big city, and we like that kind of big cities here at Travel Now. They are also known for having a great coffee scene there, and that appeals to nearly everyone nowadays - flat white anyone? The ideal strategy for travelers should be to fly into Sydney, organize their transport situation and then drive down to Melbourne.

Twelve Apostles

The Twelve Apostles

Even though at the most there were only nine of them standing in the sea, The Twelve Apostles have become another iconic image of Australia. These limestone stacks off the coast of Port Campbell National Park in Victoria have been getting visited by tourists for centuries and we recommend a trip there to all of our readers. What makes this site special is the fact that the harsh waves will sadly eventually knock these apostles down, as they did in 2005 when the number went from nine to eight. So, time is of the essence to enjoy them!


Uluru (Ayers Rock)

Every country has those two or three iconic images that pop into your head when you hear the country's name, and for Australia, it's gotta be the Sydney Opera House, the Great Barrier Reef, The Twelve Apostles, and Uluru (Ayers Rock). This burnt-orange behemoth in Australia's Northern Territory is the one we recommend the most, as it is especially enchanting at sunset when the crisp low light of the sun makes the rock almost glow.


Western Australia

Truly a frontier, Western Australia's isolation and desolate spaces particular draw visitors to them and they would be the perfect spot to finish up any trip to Australia. Made famous by books and movies about wide open spaces, the vastness of the area seems hard to grasp, but once there, it is said you feel it in your bones. The capital of Perth is an exciting modern city stop to counterbalance the slower pace of the rural areas, and the mining towns in Western Australia's Outback are great destinations in their own right.
