The Blue Mountains

Very popular with tourists due to the amazing views and interesting walking trails is The Blue Mountains.

Kimberley Region

Quite different to the beaches but just as amazing is the Kimberley Region, which is located in the north western corner on the country. If you love anything historical and interesting, you are going to love it here. The oldest rock formations in the country are found in this location, dating back to 350 million years! Complete with the quirky “boab trees”, you are guaranteed some unique but stunning shots in the Kimberley Region.

Whitsunday Islands

No trip to sunny Australia is complete without soaking up the amazing golden sandy beaches and this is a great one. The Whitsunday Islands are actually located very close to The Great Barrier Reef, so why not hit both locations in one day? The sea is bluer than what you could have ever imagined and climbing the hill will give you amazing views of Whitehaven beach.
