The main reason for visiting Australia is the diversity of its landscape, and it is this diversity that makes Australia a very attractive and friendly tourist destination. You can visit rain forests, deserts or even snowy mountains. Travelers can relax on sandy beaches, spend a night camping in wilderness a thousand miles from civilization, search for gold and gemstones in a desert, discover the secrets of a rain forest or learn about exotic animals. The beauty of the Australian nature can not only be found on the mainland and surrounding islands, but also deep under the sea.
The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef in the Coral Sea is the world’s largest coral reef system. Australia is also known for its fauna totally unique in the world – animals such as a kangaroo, a koala bear and a platypus.
Uluru (Ayers Rock)
The large rock formation in the central Australia is sacred to the Aboriginal people of Australia. Steeply rising walls of the formation are full of caves and overhangs, but also ancient paintings and local legends. The rocky surface dramatically changes its color under various lighting and particularly deep orange color in contrast with blue sky creates unique and unforgettable scenery. Uluru is listed as a World Heritage Site.
Great Ocean Road
It is a magnificent panorama of steep cliffs and rock blocks located in the southern part of the Pacific Ocean. The location offers a possibility of pleasant walks and tours in wilderness, excellent conditions for swimming and water sports.

It was inscribed as a World Heritage Site for its stunning natural beauty and unspoiled landscape. You can find luxurious resorts and also affordable accommodation, which is of course necessary to ensure in advance.
