Ok, so if you’ve ever seen any pictures (or heard anything through the grapevine) about Australia, then we probably don’t need to convince you to go there. Everything is beautiful – from the wildlife to the architecture – and the only bad thing that we can think of about this country is literally the huge spiders. If you don’t mind spiders and snakes (we’re going to stop talking about this now…) then you’ll have the best time ever visiting some of the wonders on offer. From The Great Barrier Reef to the tasty food, we’re going to break down why you should visit…
- Australia’s wildlife is the best
Categorically, the wildlife here is the best. From The Great Barrier Reef – which is not only the largest coral reef in the world, but also the largest living thing that exists – to the beautiful Whitsunday Islands, there is everything on offer here. Take a trip to the white sandy beaches to chill out or go snorkeling and sailing; there’s something for you no matter what type of trip you’re looking to go on. If you’re feeling daring, check out what adventure tours Australia has to offer.
- The food is tasty
When we heard that Australians have their Christmas dinner – which is, incidentally, a barbeque – on the beach, we didn’t know how to feel about these guys. How is it possible to even cook a turkey on the barbeque? We’re going to let them off this time, however, because they have some delicious food on offer throughout the country. If, like us, you’d rather avoid the witchetty grubs, then they have some tasty seafood dishes and a whole host of barbeque tricks up their sleeves. Yum.
- It’s always hot there
Whilst most of us are struggling to put up with the cold temperatures this December, there are a lot of people who are still enjoying the sunshine as if they’re on a permanent vacation. In Sydney it’s perfectly normal to see temperatures of around 75 degrees in the winter… so if you want to top up your tan and catch some rays – whatever month it may be – going to Australia is probably a good idea. And we’re not jealous at all.
- The people are interesting and diverse
Australian people are known for being genuine and honest, and they like to have fun. The population is diverse, and there are large indigenous communities settled throughout the continent. You can even go on tours with indigenous people and learn first-hand what the forests mean to them, and how they use them to uphold their traditions. This is a great opportunity, and is supposed to be very beautiful, so give it a try if you can!
Obviously, there is an endless list of reasons when it comes to why you should visit Australia, and these are just a few of them. Of course, the best way to experience all of the beauty a country has to offer is to visit yourself, as you never know what it is that you’ll find around the next corner. So get packing, get planning, and have the trip of a lifetime visiting the beautiful wonders on offer!
