Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef (and the Whitsundays)

Uluru at Sunset

Large rocky cliffs and characteristic blue haze in the Blue Moun

The Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains - able to be reached in a short day trip from Sydney - offer some of the most stunning and peaceful views in all of Australia. It's a great spot for camping, hiking, and exploring caves, and there are some mountain towns you can visit as well.

A certified UNESCO World Heritage site, Kakadu National Park is Australia's largest national park, covering over 20,000 square kilometres. Starting from an approximate two-hour drive from Darwin, you can explore the traditional lands of the Bininj/Mungguy people at your own pace.
