Australia is a vast country that if you are lucky enough to visit will give you the vacation of a lifetime, thorough planning will make your trip more organized. For many it will be easier to go on an organized tour which will take in most of the attractions you will want to see. Australia is famous for its beaches and Bondii Beach is one not to miss and Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast in Queensland is a must. Queensland is the home of one of Australia’s greatest natural landmarks, the Great Barrier Reef. Made up of 3000 individual reefs and 900 islands the area encompasses 1600 miles. There is no better place to snorkel, go on a guided tour that will take you to a remote Island; the reef is breathtaking so spend as much time there as you can.
Australia is graced with many natural wonders and Ayers Rock, now called Uluru is not to be missed. This huge sandstone rock is sacred to the Aboriginals. Viewing the rock at sunset or sunrise is popular for the magnificent colors which provide once in a lifetime views. Around the rock you will find ancient aboriginal paintings, caves and waterholes. There is an admission fee for the park, but it covers you for 3 days.
While travelling you may get to see some of the countries resident animal population, if not you can always visit one of the many animal sanctuaries. Koala, kangaroo, wallaby, emu, platypus and wombats, you could spend several days learning about the animals and their habitat. Great fun if you are travelling with children, the guides make this a really fun experience.
Taking a rest day in your busy schedule does not mean you have to stop experiencing Australia. Relax in your room and try online pokies and online slots!!!
