I gathered this information from a friend who had explored some other areas.
7 places to visit in Australia aside from the East Coast
So you’ve done the East Coast of Australia and want to venture further afield to explore some of the country’s spectacular natural wonders. From the temperate rainforests of Tassie to the arid deserts of Central Australia, here are my top 7 tips on what to see and do.
1. Head west to go wine tasting in Margaret River (which is particularly beautiful in spring when the wildflowers are in bloom), then head up the coast to dive or snorkel with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef.
2. Venture into the World Heritage-listed wilderness of Tasmania and go hiking along the famous Overland Track – one of Australia’s most popular multi-day treks.
3. Discover Australia’s indigenous culture and Dreamtime stories at Uluru – an immense monolith that rises in the center of the country – and go hiking through the nearby King’s Canyon.
4. Drive across the Kimberley region in northwest Australia to discover spectacular waterfalls and the fascinating rock formations of the Bungle Bungles.
5. Witness the Aboriginal rock paintings and birdlife of Kakadu National Park – a breathtaking landscape of seasonal wetlands and soaring sandstone escarpments.
6. Learn about Australia’s convict history during a ghost tour at the former convict settlement of Port Arthur.
7. Drive along the Great Ocean Road to see the “Twelve Apostles” rock formations and kick back at the laid-back surfing beaches.
