This month while researching world class travel destinations, I was fortunate enough to get turned on to Australia. The eastern coast seems most appealing, with cities like Brisbane and Sydney offering diverse landscape and interesting attractions for visitors of all ages.
Brisbane, Australia is a popular travel destination for all kinds of travelers, as it is very close to the Great Barrier Reef. There is ample fishing, diving and sunbathing on the coast, while a trip inland will bring you to beautiful nature preserves with lakes and trails just waiting to be explored. The city also offers a plethora of fantastic modern restaurants and boutiques, and is an international hot spot for all kinds of music. Nearly 2 million call Brisbane home, and judging by the cities many offerings, it’s easy to understand why.
If you would like to see Sydney, it is about a 12 hour drive from Brisbane. With a rental car in Australia, you can make the trip in style and comfort, and really take it at your own pace. The coastline has many great destinations to see, and it makes for a scenic drive. But once you arrive in Sydney, you will discover even more.
Most of us have seen Sydney in films such as The Matrix, Finding Nemo, and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, but the city is more than just a backdrop for high quality cinema. Art culture is alive and well in Sydney, as visitors from all over the world flock to see the operas and symphonies held at the Sydney Opera House, marvel at beautiful paintings and sculptures at The Art Gallery of New South Wales, and visit the science and technology based Powerhouse Museum. Thrill seekers can test their nerves on the Bridge Climb, which means strapping yourself on and walking across the Sydney Harbor Bridge! You can also take a rental car in Sydney over to the majestic Blue Mountains, for hiking. There is even a cable car set up to take you across miles of gorgeous forest for those just looking for a view.
There’s lots happening in Australia, espically in the next 6 months! Our events calendar only can show you a small portion of what’s going on, but with a little research, you will find there’s lots more to do and see!
