The first thing to think of while I am talking about Australia is how rich that country is. You can see richness in its natural beauty, stunning landscapes, reefs, beaches and rock formations. Australia has a strong sporting culture, wine industry and a multicultural society. But what is the most important its beautiful country with breathtaking natural wonders.
This list I have made is not an official list of New Wonders of Nature. It’s my personal list of Australian places that left me breathless and emotionally touched. Every single place listed here is worth a visit. I hope you love it.
1. Uluru-Kjata Tuta National Park
Uluru rests in the heart of Australia’s Red Centre. These icons of Australia rest on the sacred lands of the Anangu people. The park has two World Heritage statuses for ancient culture and its natural beauty. When you visit the park number one thing to do is to look beyond the rock and learn something of its significance. How to complete your visit to Uluru? Wait for the sunset, where colors and changing and moving within seconds.
2. The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef, the largest reef system, is so magnificent and big that it can be seen from outer space. It’s the only living masterpiece on Earth visible from space. It was born 25 million years ago. It stretches for 3,000 kilometers off the Queensland coast. This natural wonder of Australia has 400 different types of coral and 1,500 species of tropical fish. It’s not just a wonder of Australia but also one of seven natural wonders of the world. Believe or not, my dear guys, it’s the largest living structure on the planet.
3. Red Center
You may know Red Center is sacred to the Aboriginal people here, and that it turns some spectacular colors at sunrise and sunset. You might not know that there are many other sacred and breathtaking sites here in Australia’s vast center. You might realize that this landscape has green vegetation and lush waterholes as well as dusty red roads and huge slabs of rock. Australia’s Red Center is magic. It has great majesty, silence and splendid isolation. You can’t truly understand it, until you get there.
4. Kangaroo Island
If you want to see native wildlife in the wild, you have to visit Kangaroo island. It’s the real ecological haven of Australia. Here you can enjoy the site of pink pelicans wheeling through the sky, lions lying on the sand of Seal Bay and sleepy koalas in the trees, pairs of little penguins making their nightly pilgrimage, kangaroos jumping around. Swim in secret beaches at Stokes Bay, surf at Vivonne Bay and fish in Emu Bay. Oh, such a lovely place this Kangaroo island is.
5. Kakadu National park
Kakadu National park, recognized as a global treasure, is one of the top three parks in Australia, and believe me there are plenty of parks. It is World Heritage listed for both its magnificent biodiversity and living Aboriginal culture and history. It is the largest national park in Australia, covering almost 20,000 square kilometers. Kakadu offers floodplains, adventure, gorges, Aboriginal rock carvings, cultural experiences, waterfalls, stunning sunsets, unique flora and fauna and a bit of star-gazing.
