1) Ayres Rock (Uluru)
One of the most famous landmarks in Australia, a huge sandstone rock close to the centre of the country.
A world heritage site belonging to the aboriginals, this is a sacred part of Dreamtime which is the spiritual belief belonging to the aboriginal people. Uluru is believed to have been here since the very beginning and created by 10 aboriginals or spirit people.
2) Fraser Island
This is the most popular tour amongst many backpackers. The largest sand island in the world, with 100 fresh water lakes and ancient rainforests, this truly is a beauty!!
there are lots of trips to choose from on Fraser but the most popular by my experience is the 4wd safari.
But watch out for those dingoes! they can be quite inquisitive at times!!
3) The Great Barrier Reef
I’m pretty sure most if not all of you have heard about this world wonder. A beautiful collection of coral reefs stretching the size of the length of Great Britain!!!
There are hundreds of fun and exciting things to do for all sorts of budgets here from snorkeling to sky diving.

5) The Great Ocean Road
Another part of Australia’s national heritage, 151 mile stretch of road along the south-eastern coast built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932, dedicated to the fallen of World War 1.
A beautiful coastline leading to some of the most prominent landmarks, including the Twelve Apostles.

If you’re an animal lover this will warm your heart, thousands of little penguins living in the waters around the island in Victoria.
There is a daily parade of penguins on the beach drawing thousands of spectators each year.
7) Bondi and Manly Beach
