You know what the saddest thing about travelling is? That, no matter what happens, you’re never really going to have the time to travel to every place that you’ve ever wanted to in your life. Sure, if you’re really lucky you’ll get to experience a lot of different places from all over the world, but you’ve still got to carefully consider what kinds of destinations you really want to visit with the time that you have. This can be incredibly difficult since there are so many amazing places out there for you to see. However, here are three pretty simple reasons why you should consider putting Australia right at the very top of that list.
The wildlife in Australia has become something of an international joke. Many people are now totally convinced that, if you go to Australia then you’re going to instantly set upon by hordes of gigantic and deadly animals. Of course, this is certainly not true. Sure, there are plenty of dangerous critters in the outback, but there are also some amazing animals that you simply have to see for yourself. Whether it’s hanging out with Koalas or whale watching from Hervey Bay, the wildlife in Australia has more to offer than many other places in the world. And you don’t have to go near a single venomous or dangerous animal to experience it.
One of the main reasons that a lot of people take vacations in the first place is to experience weather that you can’t get at home. After all, what’s more wonderful than being able to lie back in the sunshine getting a tan while you know that people back home are wrapping themselves up in coats and scarves to avoid the cold? The weather in Australia is unmatched by just about anywhere else and is completely perfect for anyone who finds themselves desperately wanting to get back to the joys of warmth and sunshine for a while.
Australian people have a reputation for two things: being extremely friendly and being drop-dead gorgeous! As far as cultural stereotypes go, it could certainly be worse. Not only that but it turns out to be completely true. Aussies are often more than willing to throw their doors open to travellers and treat you like one of the family. If you’re the kind of person who loves to travel alone and make new friends when you arrive, Australia could well end up turning into something of a home away from home for you. Just make sure that you don’t have too much fun, and you actually remember to come home!
Of course, these are far from the only reasons to visit Australia. You’ve also got centuries of fascinating history to discover as well as miles upon miles of some truly extraordinary landscapes from Mt. Wellington to the Great Ocean Road. It’s the kind of place that you could return to every year for the rest of your life and still not discover every amazing hidden gem that it has to offer you.
