Beautiful Australian Holiday Locations You’ve Never Heard Of.
When thinking of an Australian holiday the obvious places to see are Ayres Rock, more correctly these days known as Uluru, Sydney Opera house or the famous and very beautiful Bondi Beach to surf, swim, fish and sail.
However, there are some hidden gems to enjoy for those willing to put in a little effort. If you’ve found a low-cost flight to Australia then you’ll surely have money left over to explore some of these hidden gems. It will be worth it.
Western Australia is home to a place called Esperance, it is a fair old drive out to reach this remote area and perhaps this is why it isn`t packed with tourists, however with sand so white it is almost blinding; perfectly turquoise seas and The Pink Lake, which does indeed look pink at certain times of the year it would be a shame not to make the journey as part of your Australian holiday.
Aside from beaches as good if not better than the more popularly visited locations in the country. Off the coast are a collection of islands including a gorgeous wildlife sanctuary called Woody Island where you can grab an overnight stay.
The Bay of Fires in Tasmania is also less visited than it deserves.
It is another beautiful coastal area, featuring blue water, white beaches, but also red rocky bays and superb fishing.
You can really make the best of this place by taking one of the walking tours you can find in the area.
These are designed to really give you the Bay at its best – make sure to pack your comfy shoes.
Now, the outback is a common wish for tourist destinations, but one of the quirkier and arguably best ways to see it is to take The Mail Run at Broken Hill.
You get in a post van, with a real postman and accompany him on his round, which services about 20 homesteads situated in the centre of the outback.
Not only do you get to drop off vital supplies to people, you get to see some lovely country and if he has the time the friendly postie will make a few extra stops to tell you about the wildlife and bush itself.
Broken Hill does have its share of attractions too including an imposing sculpture named Symposium and there are a host of art shops and galleries featuring local art from the talented population; not to mention as an old mining town there are a couple of museums and some knockout pubs.
Last but certainly not least is The Daintree River Rainforest in Tropical North Queensland.
Whilst most people are aware of its beaches and red rocky landscapes not many know that Australia is also home to a diverse number of prehistoric forests and even rain forests.
The Daintree region gives you the opportunity to see animal and plant life, which were millions of years in the making.
Sadly, many of these are reaching the point of no return in terms of extinction as their natural habitats disappear.
Many think that the Daintree River as a natural border that separates modern man from his prehistoric roots.
It is a perfect place for a beautiful weekend when you consider that there isn`t even a manmade bridge to the forests across the river.
Hidden holiday locations for your Australian holiday, there’s so many of them you’ll never have enough time to find them all…..
