Australia has been on the list of the most desired travel destinations for a very long time, and the incredible nature, wildlife, and history of the island have been bringing people to its shores for decades. Everything about the country is trilling and exotic for travelers all over the world, from the cultural attractions like the Sydney Opera House to the natural wonders like the Ayers Rock (sacred to indigenous Australians).

When you’re traveling to Sydney, you should consider booking a suite in the Rocks, next to the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The Rocks is set amidst the best attractions in town, and you’ll quickly find that all the action is happening in this area. You can book a tour for climbing the Harbour Bridge, which is one of the most iconic landmarks of Australia since it was built in 1932, or you can buy a ticket for a show at the Opera.

 If Melbourne is more your style, the best place to stay is in the CBD area due to the close proximity to important, such as the Fed Square. You can wake up in the morning in this incredible corner of the city, drink a cup of coffee on the Federation Square and go promenading down the Yarra River. There are so many options for you to choose from, like seeing art exhibits in the National Gallery or stargazing at the Observatory.

 Australian War Memorial

 The Australian War Memorial is located in Australia’s capital Canberra, and it was opened in 1941 in the name of the armed forces and the soldiers who fought and died in a war. The memorial is one of the most highly regarded among its kind in the world. It’s comprised of three main parts and supporting areas:

 •    The commemorative area with a shrine in the center and the Hall of Memory with the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier

•    Memorial’s galleries, which are in fact smaller museums

•    The Research Centre, where all the records are kept

•    An outdoor Sculpture Garden

 The Australian War Memorial is open every day from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

 Phillip Island

 If you came to Australia to see its incredible nature and to observe pulsating wildlife, then you should find some time to visit Phillip Island, which is only an hour and a half away from Melbourne. One of the most exciting parades you will ever see is the Penguin Parade, full of little sweet and adorable penguins walking next to each other, completely melting your heart with joy.

 You can also book a boat ride on the Wild Ocean Eco Boat Tour or take a virtual of the Antarctic Journey.

 Grampians National Park

 The Grampians National Park is located in Victoria, Australia, and it’s spread across 167,219-hectares of land, approximately 260 kilometers west of Melbourne. The park is a dream come true for geologists and everyone with interest in rock formations and origin. Additionally, rock-climbers happen to love this park, too. It also has a spiritual meaning, since it was a sacred site for the Jardwadjali and Djab Wurrung peoples of Australia.

Springbrook National Park

 The Springbrook National Park is set in the hinterlands of the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. It spreads across 6,197 hectares, and it is 100 kilometers south of Brisbane. The park is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Springbrook National Park has three natural intersections:

 •    Mount Cougal section

•    Natural Bridge section

•    Springbrook Plateau section

 The local Yugambeh Aboriginal peoples tell the tale of a mythical seeker called Gwayla who had two loyal dingos to help with his quests. The story goes that they were buried under the two famous twin peaks of Mount Cougal.
