A Closer Look
Geographically isolated and home to unique cultures, wildlife, and landscapes, Australia is a world unto itself. The country’s billabongs, gorges, canyons, and deserts are populated with species found nowhere else on earth—kangaroos, koalas, and fairy penguins, to name just a few. In addition, the country’s indigenous culture, speculated to be the world’s oldest continuous living culture (at least 60,000 years old), imbues the land with a sacred significance. And the land itself—from the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest living organism, to Uluru (Ayer’s Rock), the world’s largest monolith—is equally vibrant. To top it off, Australia’s cities are jewels of contemporary Aussie culture, worthy rivals of the world’s top metropolises.
Most of Australia is still untouched and in its natural state. As a result, Australia is the perfect place to sunbathe at stunning beaches, go diving at the Great Barrier Reef, unrivalled by any other, bask in wide-open spaces, and camp surrounded by wildlife.
Australia attracts tourists from all over the world as it offers diverse activities that appeal to everybody. It also boasts very pleasant climates and is a magnificent destination to visit. A haven for nature lovers and a country that offers eclectic experiences that remain unforgettable and attract people to return repeatedly. Find the balance between peaceful relaxation and the excitement that the country has to offer.
