Known as the “Land Down Under,” Australia boasts of many tourist destinations and vacation spots. Since Australian summer occurs at a time when most other countries are freezing at below zero temperatures, it has become an ideal getaway for many people.
Visitors to the country won’t be shortchanged once they set foot there. From the various historical sites to vineyards that offer winery tours, you can never go wrong in Australia. Typical tourists or those who merely visit other countries to visit famous landmarks and sample delectable fares would normally have the following in their list of places to visit while traversing the Land Down Under:
1. Sydney Opera House – With its soaring, sail-like arches, it is touted as the “instantly most recognizable” landmark in Australia. It is to Australia what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris.
2. Great Barrier Reef – Stretching over 2,600 kilometers, it is the world’s largest coral reef system composed of 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands. This is the only coral reef system visible from the outer space.
