Whether you are planning on taking a road trip, backpacking or taking a family holiday, Australia is a country that suits everyone.

This vast country is the largest island in the world, so there’s plenty here to explore whether you’re a fan of natural beauty or more of a city slicker. To get the most from your trip to this vast country, and to visit as much of it as possible, it may be useful to hire a car from a company such as Bayswater Car Rentals so that you can explore at your own pace. If you’re planning to visit Australia any time soon, here are some of the country’s very best destinations that are well worth a visit:
It goes without saying that Australia’s Red Centre is well worth a visit during your time in Australia. Experience the beauty of seeing Uluru at any time of the day, but visit at sunset or sunrise for a truly spectacular experience at this important Aboriginal site.

The Great Barrier Reef
If you’re in the Queensland area, don’t miss the chance to visit The Great Barrier Reef. Both staggeringly beautiful and hugely important, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the largest coral reef system in the world. Swim or snorkel to explore the Great Barrier Reef’s beauty up close, or take a sailing trip to enjoy it from above the water.
Bondi Beach is a must-visit destination for anyone visiting Sydney. This sandy beach is popular throughout the year with tourists and locals alike. If you’re feeling energetic then why not take a dip, or if you’d prefer, you can chill out and watch the surfers in action from one of the local cafés instead.
While you’re in Sydney, you won’t want to miss visiting those famous landmarks synonymous with the Sydney skyline; the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.
If you’re interested in wildlife, you will love visiting Kangaroo Island. Located just off of Australia’s southern coast, Kangaroo Island is a haven for native Australian wildlife; including the platypus! Visit Seal Bay Conservation Park to see rare sea lions up close, or venture to Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary to see koalas.
As well as being a haven for wildlife, Kangaroo Island is also home to some incredible rocks formations too.
The Great Ocean Road
Enjoy a stunning drive across 150 miles of beautiful coastline in Victoria by taking a ride along The Great Ocean Road. The Twelve Apostles is an impressive sight to spot on your trip. These towering rocks stand alone at sea after the surrounding limestone has worn away, leaving this impressive formation behind.
