With the world going ever more global, it’s becoming easier and easier for people to try out living in an exciting new part of the world. And one of the most exciting places you could hope to test out is Australia. But with so many iconic, exotic, and exciting things on your plate, what do you do and see first?
A big move requires planning and preparation, and luckily we’re just the right people to help with that during moving season. We can help your move to Australia be as easy and stress-free as possible.
7 Things To Do And See FIRST In Your Move to Australia:
Great Barrier Reef:
This one will certainly qualify as an adventure and might cost a bit but you absolutely have to see the biggest barrier reef in the entire world. Home to some of the most beautiful and fascinating creatures on Earth, the Great Barrier Reef is a sust see!
Drive the Great Ocean Road:
One of the cheaper and yet more stunning sights in Australia can be found simply by driving the Great Ocean Road. This coastal highway offers easily some of the best shoreline driving on the planet. Be sure to watch the coast for the 12 Apostles – 12 columns of limestone jutting out from the waters.
Sydney Opera House:
One of Australia’s most, if not the most, iconic buildings is the Sydney Opera House. You simply must attend something here. It would be like moving to Chicago and not seeing the Sears Tower (yes, that’s right Sears Tower).
The Grampians National Park:
This park in Victoria is home to some of the coolest rock formations in the country as well as some of the oldest Aboriginal rock art. This is the Monument Valley of Australia.
Though a bit of a tourist trap, Byron bay in Queensland is one of Australia”s most iconic beaches. You’ll be doing yourself a disservice by not checking it out once. Might as well get it out of the way while you are still a tourist before setting out to find the hidden gems.
The most iconic sight in all of Australia’s Outback is Uluru. This humpbacked rock is truly a marvel of geography and ancient culture. You must see it!
Kakadu National Park:
While pretty much any of Australia’s national parks should be on your immediate must see lists, Kakadu offers some of Australia’s rarest, most iconic, and most gorgeous sights all in one park.
