Kakadu National Park: Located in the Top End, Australia’s largest national park is a refuge for many species of plants and animals, some of them dangerous.
Kangaroo Island: An ecotourism paradise for a unique getaway. A site sculpted by erosion where nature has its place.
Tasmania: Exceptional landscapes and lush nature in “the island of Australia”. Even if the weather is sometimes capricious.
Fraser Island: Aboard a 4WD, travel around the island and camp in the wilderness. Bathe in heavenly freshwater lakes.
Exmouth / Coral Bay National Park: In an isolated nature and bordered by large and beautiful deserted beaches, divers will rub shoulders with whale sharks and manta rays.
The must-sees of Western Australia:
Finally, If you like to think outside the box, head to Western Australia and its immense spaces. The state capital, Perth, is a great city to live in and one of the sunniest in the world. It is bordered by many beaches ideal for surfing.
For science fiction lovers, head to the Pinnacles Desert for a unique lunar spectacle that makes it one of Australia’s must-see …
In the Kimberley region, take on Bungles Bungles Park with its impressive geological formations and unspoiled nature. The Karijini National Park is also incredible with its colors mixing the ocher of the stone and the greenery of the fauna, it feels like a surreal landscape. The gorges with crystal clear waters also have everything to please and offer very appreciable swimming.
For lovers of fish and marine mammals, head to Ningaloo Reef, to observe whale sharks and humpback whales, or Monkey Mia beach in François Péron National Park to see the dolphins who come to greet you by the beach. Finally, for lovers of oddities, do not miss the pink lakes of Hutt Lagoon or Lake Hillier or the incredible rock formation of Wave Rock, surprises guaranteed.
The main places to visit in Western Australia
Karijini National Park
Pinnacles Desert (Nambung National Park)
The Pemberton Valley and its gigantic trees
Hutt Lagoon Pink Lake
Cape Range National Park & Ningaloo Reef
Monkey mia (François Péron National Park – Shark Bay)
Still further south, direction Tasmania. Is it being an island attached to another island, but Tasmania is a separate state. Already nothing at the level of the climate … but also of its constitution. On the one hand we have Hobart a modern city (although it is the oldest city in Australia) and on the other a nature of exceptional richness. The latter is often reduced to the devil of Tasmania alone, while Tasmania is so much more. In terms of the landscape, go to Wine glass bay, Cradle Mountain, Bay of fire to amaze you.

The must-sees of South Australia
It’s not Australia’s best-known destination, but South Australia does have a lot to offer. Let’s start with the bustling city of Adelaide, which remains a hotbed of Australian culture. Near Adelaide, discover the Barossa Valley renowned for its vineyards. Then head towards the Eyre Peninsula, to make room for wildlife. That of the Outback, but especially the marine fauna because you can observe southern right whales (just like on the Fleurieu Peninsula), sea lions but also diving in cages with white sharks….
For fans of westerns don’t miss the mining town of Coober Pedy. Isolated city in the middle of the vastness of the red desert with partly buried dwellings, welcome to the strangest city that I have ever visited. A must-see destination in Australia or just unusual? your turn to judge.
What would Australia also be without the Outback? The Ikara-Flinders Range Park is arguably one of the best examples of this, so it’s best to add it to your To do list if you want to experience authentic Australia!
We will end up with a crush, which is for me one of the other unmissable places in Australia, where you can freely observe Koalas, kangaroos, sea lions, wallabies… You guessed it, it is Kangaroo Island ! This is the ultimate Nature getaway! An eco-tourist paradise that brings together an incredible biological wealth (Eucalyptus, animals), surprising granite formations (Remarkable Rocks) and impressive landscapes at Admirals Arch
The highlights of the Australian Capitol Territory (ACT)
Between Melbourne and Sydney in the state of the Australian Capitol Territory (ACT) lies Canberra, the Australian capital. This modern city, however, has little interest apart from a few museums and the parliament. In contrast, the area around Canberra is teeming with activity. Head to the bush, Namadgi and Tidbinbilla National Parks, and why not go skiing in the Snowy Mountains? Change of scenery guaranteed!
The importance of Preparing for your trip to Australia:
With all these must-see places to discover, I don’t think you will wonder why to go to Australia for much longer. Going to Australia is a dream for many European travelers. This gigantic country continent attracts many visitors, but it is really difficult to discover Australia in one stay. The distances are long and there are many possible routes and destinations for very different experiences in the many must-see places in Australia but also more unusual.
