Same same, yet oh so different. Accent aside, wildlife would be the number one difference between ourselves and Aussie. You don’t have to travel far, bother with jet lag and the likes to be experiencing a generally warmer climate and somewhat unique creatures.
Whether its a quick trip for an extended weekend for a spot of shopping and outstanding restaurants of Melbourne’s hidden laneways, a family trip to the Gold Coast with theme parks and white sand long long beaches, or stargazing after a Uluru base walk to touch the massive sandstone monolith in the heart of the Northern Territory’s arid Red Centre, Australia doesn’t fail to deliver.
Let's not forget Queensland home of the Daintree Rainforest and coastal cities starting in the south with Brisbane running all the way up that incredible coast with Great Barrier Reef in your right all the way up to Cairns. Just a short distance (in Australian terms!) north of Brisbane is Hervey Bay where you can enjoy seasonal whale watching. Typically, between late Autumn and late Spring. A quarter of the humpback population makes its way into Hervey Bay when they turn south in July and August, creating a rare chance for whale watching from August to October.
Get yourself across the ditch for a travel experience that never disappoints.
