Mountains, beaches, rainforest and a HUGE desert alongside modern and totally hip cities? That’s Australia!

I’ve only been living here for 18 months and still consider myself a newbie in many ways, but there’s one thing I have noted during my time here. I love Australia! As far as scenery, landscapes and beautiful destinations go this place it full to the brim. There’s so much variety when it comes to culture, activities, food and fun to be had.

It’s easy to see why this country is so appealing to travelers from backpackers, honeymooners, and families so if it isn’t on your list for places to visit, here’s why it should be!
