6 Natural Attractions to Visit in Australia

There's no doubt, Australia is one of our favourite country that me and Lik like to visit every year.
For us, Australia is such a fascinating part of the world.
Dotted with cosmopolitan cities, the rest of the country seems practically untouched by humans.
One minute you could be soaking up the sights of the city of Sydney, before driving into the outback and being surrounded by nature.
There are so many natural attractions in Australia that it can be hard to pick between them.
If you're not sure where to discover the secrets of this beautiful country, I'm here to give you some inspiration! :)
From amazing sightseeing to breathtaking scenery and aquatic adventures, here's the the six natural attractions you should visit in Australia!

There are so many reasons to go to Australia, what's yours?!


If you followed my blogs about my trip to Perth in Australia, then you may have already seen my pictures of the stunning Pinnacles Desert
Situated in Nambung National Park, near the town of Cervantes, which is impressive to visit anyway.
The Pinnacles Desert feels like something from another planet. 
The best season to visit is during the spring (August to October) as this is when the wildflowers start blooming. 
The Pinnacles is a must-visit in Australia!

If you go to Australia and don’t go diving, then you’re really missing out! 
The Secret Traveler blog at 1Cover has a list of reasons why you need to learn to dive, and they’re all so right. 
It teaches you to focus, you can make new diving friends, and you’ll learn things like how to stay calm under pressure.
One of the best places to dive in the world is, of course, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
Unfortunately, the whole of the Great Barrier Reef is in great danger, and there are concerns it won’t be around for much longer.
If you’re going to go, you’ll want to be quick.

According to historians, when Europeans first made their way over to Australia, they landed on Shark Bay, and deemed the whole country “no good.” 
The W-shaped coastline is full of cliffs and rocky limestone, along with plenty of shallow peninsulas which are home to many threatened species. 
Here, you’ll also find around 10,000 dugongs, a mammal that looks a bit like a manatee, and also amazingly, dolphins. 
Of course, you can also find sharks here, around 28 different species, apparently.

Ayers Rock, known formally as Uluru, is one of the most famous natural attractions in Australia. 
This giant sandstone monolith is a sacred site for the Anangu people, so it’s not a good idea to climb it unless you want to upset the locals! 
Ayers Rock comes alive at sunset and sunrise, so try to catch it at the right time to see the magnificent red and orange hues it gives off.

Located just off of Queensland, on the eastern coast, you’ll find the largest sand island in the world. Stretching over 120km, Fraser Island is a real sight to behold.
It’s a World Heritage site, and it won’t be hard to see why it’s protected.
Where else in the world will you find rainforests growing out of sand dunes?
The sands are white, the water is turquoise, and the views are simply stunning.
If you only visit one natural attraction in Australia, this has to be it.

Covering around 20,000 square kilometres, Kakadu is the biggest National Park in Australia. 
There are thought to be over 2,000 different plant species here, along with plenty of wildlife, from turtles to crocodiles. 
This bio-diverse nature reserve spans over a variety of different terrains, from wetlands to sandstone escarpments. 
You can also catch a glimpse of prehistoric, Aboriginal rock paintings at various ancient sites. 
If you’re heading to Australia’s Northern Territory, then you have to check out Kakadu.

It's so hard picking just six natural attractions to visit in Australia when there are so many to choose from.
