If you are a student studying abroad or will be in the near future, here are 5 must see places in Australia that every traveller (including you) should experience when you are here.
#1. Byron Bay
Byron Bay is a great small town & has a very relaxing beach. Byron is a huge tourist location but does not feel touristy (ie. over crowded). The people and overall atmosphere is very laid back and great for those who love to chill. TIP) When visiting Byron Bay be sure to check out a place called The Farm. The Farm is indeed a working farm that houses several local businesses as well as having a kick ass cafe you can visit.n
#2. Melbourne City
Melbourne Is considered the most cultured city in Australia. Melbourne is very trendy, has a lot to offer for everybody and travelling around is super easy and cheap. The City Circle Tourist Tram & The Melbourne City Tourist Shuttle are both free and give tourists access to really popular attractions like the Melbourne Aquarium to Melbourne Museum. Melbourne also has a thriving restaurant and bar scene. The best places are usually found in really odd places like rooftops, dingy alleyways or even shipping containers which makes it a little mysterious and exciting. Everyone must see melbourne!
#3. Great Barrier Reef
One of the most fascinating natural wonders in the world. The Great Barrier Reef is longer than the Great Wall of China and is the only living thing on earth that can be seen from space.n
nIf you get the chance, make sure you take a scuba diving tour and take in this natural environment that is so rare to experience. The barrier reef is also depleting at a very fast rate so this opportunity may not be available in the future.
#4. The 12 Apostles
A picturesque scenic natural phenomenon located 275 kms west of Melbourne that also, like the barrier reef is eroding away. The 12 apostles is a must see while it still exists in its size and shape (TIP) The 12 Apostles are located along the great ocean road (Australias equivalent to Big Surf California) so if you are by chance looking visiting the 12 beauties, consider making a road trip out to maximise your experience.
#5. Fraser Island
Is often described as a natural wonder and for a very good reason. The entire island is formed of sand and supports over 100 freshwater lakes and a heap fresh water streams and Camping on Fraser Island is a really popular activity and also a great way to meet other travellers. The Island also over awesome guided tours with accommodation.
