5 Reasons I Want To Visit Australia Again

Manly Beach, Sydney

When I listed down my travel wish-list (8 Countries On My Bucket List), I didn’t mention Australia because I had already ticked it off four years ago. It was the month of March, a beautiful time of spring colours in India when I flew to Australia to embrace its autumn hues.

Just like India, Australia is also a uniquely diverse country. There’s so much about it that I would still like to discover. I’m glad that I could experience two of its most stunning cities – Sydney and Melbourne. But, I want to explore MORE of Australia.

Swanston Street, Melbourne


So, without any further ado, let me just lay down why my passport wants another stamp of Australia –

Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and …

I just love the kind of vibe the Australian cities exude. There’s something so vibrant and cool about these cities. I don’t know how many cities I’d able to travel to, but I want to visit at least a couple of them. Adelaide is definitely on top of my list. I’m just fascinated by its name!

Tasmania

Tasmania is a big reason why I wouldn’t mind going through that taxing visa process again (I hope it’s easier this time). The first thing that appeals to me about Tasmania is that it’s a totally different side of Australia. I am curious to explore its national parks, wine regions and many small towns, such as Richmond, Corinna and Evandale to name a few.

Uluru  

Uluru is a remarkable site, which I want to witness in person and capture its exceptional beauty through my lens. Here’s a bit of Wikipedia about it – “Uluru, or Ayers Rock, is a massive sandstone monolith in the heart of the Northern Territory’s Red Centre desert, 450km from the nearest large town, Alice Springs. It’s sacred to indigenous Australians and believed to be about 700 million years old.”

The Barossa Valley

I’d like to visit the Barossa Valley for its sublime wine regions. It would be amazing to experience its food and wine tradition. Also, the landscapes of the Barossa Valley are immense, which would give me plenty of great photos.

Fraser Island

Though I am not much of a beach and island freak, I’d like to explore Fraser Island for its ‘greenery’ quotient. Besides, it’s known to be the biggest sand island in the world.

New Zealand

Yes! I wouldn’t want to miss out on New Zealand if I end up visiting Australia again. There’s so much to this gorgeous country – landscapes, lakes, hiking trails, food and wine, and also an interesting Maori culture.
