One of Australia’s most iconic natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef is a must-visit for those who love the ocean. With a title like ‘the world’s largest living thing’, the Great Barrier Reef is bound to be impressive. The only living thing on Earth visible from space, the Great Barrier Reef was born 25 million years ago. Stretching 2,300km long – the same length as from Vancouver to the Mexican border – the GBR consists of 900 islands and 2,900 individual reefs making it the world’s largest coral reef and the largest living structure on the planet, so amazing it can be seen from outer space. This area features some of Australia’s most incredible marine life, including many species of fish, turtles, dolphins and amazingly colorful coral. It has 400 different types of coral and 1,500 species of tropical fish.
Described by David Attenborough as “Australia’s most unusual natural wonder", Horizontal Falls is a natural phenomenon that is as intriguing as it is stunning. The Horizontal Falls are a natural phenomena, created by two narrow openings between two escarpments. The tides in this region are some of the biggest in the world, reaching up to 12 metres. This pair of stunning breaks in the McLarty Range attracts thousands of tourists via seaplanes to observe one of the greatest natural wonders of the Kimberley Coast. In additional to being horizontal, the falls are also “reversible,” according to Western Australia's Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. Each day, when the tide turns, the falls flow in the opposite direction.
If there’s one area that Australia differentiates itself from other destinations it’s the Outback. And standing in the heart of the outback is one seriously big sandstone rock. Formerly Ayers Rock and now Uluru (the Aboriginal and official name) it’s sacred to indigenous Australians and believed to be about 700 million years old. It's famed for the different hues that bathe it, particularly at sunrise and sunset. The iron content in the rock makes its colors change through the course of a day from bright to dark red. Uluru stands 348 metres above ground and is taller than The Eiffel Tower and 2.5 times the height of Sydney Harbour Bridge. It’s 3.6kms long, 1.9kms wide, with a circumference of 9.4kms.

The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks, that were formed by erosion and are viewable from the Great Ocean Road, off the Victorian coast, where they continue to erode. In spite of being named the Twelve Apostles, there were only nine when they were named -- but after a recent fall, there are now eight. Their base erodes at a rate of 2 centimeters a year. These massive limestone structures tower 45 metres above the ocean and were formed some 20 million years ago as the sea gradually eroded the soft limestone cliffs. The best time to photograph and see them is at sunrise – you’ll beat the tour buses and have the place almost to yourself – and at sunset.

One of the few World Heritage sites to be listed for both its cultural and natural features, Kakadu is renowned for its rich Aboriginal history and biodiversity. Encompassing 20,000 square kilometers of tropical biodiversity, including 1,700 plant species, Kakadu lies 171 kilometers southeast of Darwin. Kakadu is the premier national park in Australia and offers some of the most stunning displays of wildlife you can find on the continent.

One of Western Australia’s iconic landscapes, found roughly 200km north of Perth, are the limestone formations of the Pinnacles. Located along Australia’s Coral Coast, within the Nambung National Park, these formations stand up to four metres in height, portraying an array of faces, shapes and sizes. These limestone formations were created 30,000 years ago when the receding ocean left deposits of seashells on shore. The Pinnacles rise several meters out of the sand in the Park, which is home to grey kangaroos, emus and reptiles. Starting at the Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre, you can discover the natural and cultural heritage values this area holds before setting off through the desert to explore this spiritual landscape.
One of the most attractive and magnificent places to visit is Wilpena Pound which is located in South Australia, making it a center of attraction for tourists and explorers. The geographic formation of ‘Wilpena Pound’ creates a unique landscape that is also home to many Australian animals and plants, including tens of thousands of kangaroos! Everyone is amazed by the view of Wilpena Pound because when you look it from the ground, it looks like a rugged low mountain range which could be easily traversed, but when you reach the top of it, then it looks like a plain area and surrounded by the hills around its edges.

The center of Australia’s largest city, Sydney Harbor is home to the Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge. Sydney is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and a big reason for that is its stunning harbour side location. Sure it has the man-made icons like the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, but it’s the natural beauty of the harbour that always leaves a lasting impression. With more than 240 kilometres of shoreline and meandering waterways, on a warm sunny day it becomes one big aquatic playground. The best way to experience Sydney Harbour is from a ferry (circular Quay to Manly), on a cruise, by going sailing, by kayak, or even from the air.
Bringing together a world-class museum, a shrine and an extensive archive, the Australian War Memorial in Canberra is a moving and insightful experience for both young and old. The Australian War Memorial is really two related parts. At the complex’s center is the domed Hall of Memory housing the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The walls of the cloisters on either side list those who have died and are often adorned with symbolic poppies. The second part is a museum dedicated to Australian participation in wars. Discover the diverse Australian experiences of war and connect with the stories of people and events that shaped Australia.
Well, these are not just all. From the rainforests in the north to the desert outback in the country’s vast interior, Australia’s landscapes are some of the most diverse on earth.
