1. Sydney Opera House, NSW
2. Great Barrier Reef, QLD
3. East Coast of Tasmania, Tas
4. Uluru, NT
5. Great Ocean Road, Vic
At least with these you get to visit a lot of the states...
I am sure other people can suggest a lot more but these are the first 5 really good ones I could think of. about 10 years ago
Well, to be honest, listing a top 5 for Australia is kinda like listing a top 5 for Europe, just can't be done! However, here's my take on what's great, what's quintessentially Oz and what you can't really see anywhere else, in no particular order:
1) Great Barrier Reef, Queensland. This should be a no brainer. While you're there make sure you check out the Whitsundays and Fraser Islands
2) Australia's outback. Anywhere really I spose, although Uluru and around is a natural choice.
3) Kakadu National Park.
4) Sydney's harbour. Y'know, Opera House, the bridge, drinking/dining at fancy places.
5) Tasmania. East coast or a bushwalk - depending on whether mountains or beaches take your fancy. This last one may be a biased entry, but oh well! about 10 years agoAnswered by richard maddock via Travellr.com
You've got some good advice already, but here's my 2 cents worth...you might start to see a trend!
1. Sydney (harbour, beaches, mountains, great food and bars)
2. Uluru - heart of the nation, must see
3. Great Barrier Reef - any part (and make sure you at least snorkel to see what's UNDER the water)
4. Tasmania - especially East Coast - Bay of Fires and Freycinet Natnl Park
5. Melbourne and the Yarra Valley or Adelaide and the Barossa Valley or Perth and Margaret River wineries (assuming you want to taste some great Aussie wines!) about 10 years ago
