A guest post! If you want to see the best of Australia, here’s how to make the most of a trip through the Land Down Under with family.
Perth and its surrounding area offer plenty of sunshine, beaches, natural resources, and delicious food and wine. We were in Perth for 4 days before heading to Uluru, and here’s a 4-day self-drive itinerary that covers some of the area’s best highlights.
My pick of urban observatory decks – First, the city itself has to have unique and spectacular cityscape for the viewers to appreciate; Secondly, the observatory deck has to offer the best angle of the iconic landmarks with the backdrop of the stunning skyline. Therefore, some of the choices are tough and they might not be the landmark itself. Instead – they are my “even better” choices.
We explored the south of Perth and jumped out of a plane in Busselton the other day. The next day, we hopped on our rental car and headed north for another excursion to the Pinnacles desert, and I will be the one driving.
The Sydney Harbor is one of the largest natural harbors in the world, and the city thrives on it. There are lots of amazing spots a traveler would explore! As I was flipping through my photos during my BridgeClimb experience, I thought I would give myself a reminder of some of the favorite places around the harbor.
The Blue Mountains is a mountain range located in New South Wales, Australia, and it’s a popular attraction for tourists in Sydney. Although to me, the scenery is not the most jaw-dropping sight as compared with other famous scenic sites in the world, the mountain has its own specialty and a coal mining history that hold dear to the native Australian. The Blue Mountains was named for a reason – Do you know why the Blue Mountains are blue?
Australia. A day to remember as we visited some adorable creatures & jumped out from a plane! It was my very first (and not sure if it would be my only) time signed up for a skydiving experience but it was something that I always wanted to do.
Watarrka National Park was a amazing. For 3.5 hours, we enjoyed the breathtaking view and a geology lesson about how the wondrous mother nature. Why the rocks have ripples? Why they are beehive-like domes? What to pack for the three-day tours in the outback?
Wayoutback 3-day tour in Australia Day 2: Uluru Sunrise, Kata Tjuta, The Valley of the Winds and Kings Creek Station. We walked through Kata Tjuta & camping under the amazing starry sky… and flashback of sunset in Alice Springs!
There were mixed things that I heard about climbing Uluru. Before I went, I learned that climbing Uluru was not allowed because it’s considered sacred; but then my friend told me it’s actually allowed. So… to climb, or not to climb?
