Australia is arguably one of the most gorgeous countries on this great Earth. It’s full of natural wonders, wide open spaces, jaw-dropping beaches, and wickedly hot deserts. There’s a lot more to see in Australia than just some old kangaroos. However, those kangaroos can actually be quite entertaining to watch. If you’ve never been to Australia before, here are some travel tips for you.
By far, the most stunning place to visit in the entire country is the Great Barrier Reef. This astonishing natural beauty is truly something to see. The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system in the world. It is made up of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands. It covers approximately 2,600 kilometers. It’s so huge that it can be seen from space. The reef is located in the Coral Sea which is off the coast of Queensland.
Due to the beauty and wonder of the reef, there are always tons of tourists hanging around. You can take your pick of a variety of activities. There are plenty of single day trips, longer cruises, resorts to stay in, snorkeling, scuba diving, and fishing. The scuba diving was great.
Scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef is an incredible experience. The waters are crystal blue.
For those that don’t want to go to deep, snorkeling is another great option to see all the ocean life going on under the waves. If you’re into fishing, there are plenty of companies that allow you rent their equipment. You can easily rent a small fishing boat with some friends and spend your vacation catching some tasty fish. Then, just cook them up on the barbie.
