Here are list of Amazing place in australia you need to visit for vacation.

1. Blue Mountains

Best Places To Visit In Australia - Blue Mountains

Recommended by Rachel and Jeremy from The Kiwi Couple

If you’re looking for a dose of nature, the Blue Mountains are for you. Only 1.5 hours from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, it can be visited as a day trip or a weekend getaway, depending on your travel time frame. Make sure you have time to visit Wentworth Falls. This spot offers walks of varying difficulty with stunning views of the waterfall, and it’s just a short drive from the main event – The Three Sisters. These famous rock formations are the highlight of this picturesque postcard area.

If you head to Echo Point you can get an epic view of them, or hop on Scenic World’s gondola. While you’re there, don’t miss the Scenic Railway – the steepest passenger railway in the world! Last but not least, Lincoln’s Rock is a must. With views of the vast landscape and a secret little cave perfect for watching the sunset, it’s the best end to the day.

2. Bathurst

Best Places To Visit In Australia - Bathurst

Recommended by Tara from Where Is Tara

Bathurst is one of my favourite spots in Australia for so many reasons. One of them is that my cousins have farms out there. They let me stay whenever I pass through and bring me to cattle markets, which is a real novelty to me having grown up in the city. The other reason I love Bathurst is because it is often overlooked by tourists, despite having so much to offer. It’s the oldest inland city in Australia and is the site of the original Australian gold rush.

Visit the T-Rex at the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum, take a spin around the famous Mount Panorama Circuit. Or simply grab a cup of coffee from Campos, take a stroll through Machattie Park and check out the commemorative plaque from Charles Darwin’s visit in 1836. For a unique day trip in the Bathurst region check out the gold rush town of Sofala (it feels like a ghost town and has a GREAT book shop), or head to the Jenolan caves for some natural beauty, limestone-style!

3. Sydney

Best Places To Visit In Australia - Sydney

Sydney is the largest city in Australia – filled with beautiful beaches, fun activities and good food. One of the best ways to view the beauty of Sydney is by taking a relaxing stroll. An amazing beach walk, and one of the best, is from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach. It offers gorgeous views of the area’s famous rocky beaches, thin beaches and sandy beaches. Another popular walk is along the Sydney Harbour Bridge walkway. Both walks are free and are a great way to enjoy Sydney.

We love getting up high and seeing cities from above. The perfect way to do this in Sydney is by doing the Skywalk at Sydney Tower. At 268 metres high, it’s guaranteed to get your heart pumping. You’re harnessed in though so it’s not (too) scary! And finally, a must do of Sydney is to eat your heart out. Try a deep fried Golden Gaytime ice cream from What The Fudge Cafe, you won’t regret it!

4. Byron Bay

Best Places To Visit In Australia - Byron Bay

Byron is one of Australia’s top tourist destinations but if you’re willing to put in a little work you can still find some more well hidden gems just out the back in the hinterland mountains. From countless waterfalls and swimming holes to incredible mountains and bush walks this small region hide so much beauty. I would suggest starting with a hike to the bottom of Minyon Falls for a swim, a hike to the top of Mt Warning for an incredible sunrise, another swim at Killin Falls and then a hike to the Natural Arch. These are just some of the most accessible but there is so much more if you’re willing to explore.

5. Melbourne

Best Places To Visit In Australia - Melbourne

Recommended by Aditi from Diary of a Cusp

Melbourne has secured its spot of the most liveable city in the world the seventh time in a row. Most days see a varied weather – hail, sunshine, rain, wind – but that doesn’t impede the livelihood of Melbourne. Any given day you can find an event, an exhibit, a music gig, or a show to relish. You get access to free trams within the city circle to wander across without outlaying a buck on transportation. Melbourne is a multicultural metropolitan with copious restaurants serving slavering foods and cafes for your caffeine fix – Melbourne’s coffee is some of the best in the world.

6. Great Ocean Road

Best Places To Visit In Australia - Great Ocean Road

Recommended by Jack and Jenn from Who Needs Maps 

Lorne is a popular stop along the Great Ocean Road (and to the Twelve Apostles). It’s the perfect place to relax along the seaside, maybe go for a surf, eat some of the best fish and chips, and enjoy the scenery. Jack is a surfer and loves to go out to the Great Ocean Road for a surf. But the trip isn’t complete without a stop in Lorne for a parma and a pot post-surf. Lorne also has some beautiful walks and waterfalls to explore, like Erskine Falls and Phantom Falls. My favorite, is if you go during the right season, you can catch a couple of whales at sunset. Grab a wine at a seaside restaurant and enjoy the serenity.

7. Mornington Peninsula

Best Places To Visit In Australia - Mornington Peninsula

Recommended by Aditi from Diary of a Cusp

Mornington Peninsula is a peninsula located southeast of Melbourne, just an hour drive from the city. It has been an immensely popular day trip or staycation site for the residents of Victoria, especially Melbourne for decades now. Mornington Peninsula has so much to offer to its visitors – beaches, national parks, scenic views, relaxing spas, vineyards, golf courses, mazes, camping sites and so much more. This plethora of activities and the brief distance makes it so desirable to visit during long weekends like Queen’s Birthday, Christmas, Boxing Day, New Year and so on. Sampling some Pinot Noir while in the peninsula is a must.

8. Sunshine Coast

Best Places To Visit In Australia - Sunshine Coast

Recommended by Sophie from Adventures of Soph 

The Sunshine Coast has got to be one of the most beautiful strips of coastland in all of Australia, boasting beautiful, long white beaches lined with health conscious cafes and boutique clothes shops. When you aren’t soaking up the sunshine on one of the many beaches, you can head out to the hinterland for a day of mountain hiking or hop off the beaten track to discover secluded swimming holes and waterfalls with not a soul in sight. Noosa National Park and fairy pools is an absolute must do, just avoid the midday rush of the crowds.

9. Brisbane
Best Places To Visit In Australia - Brisbane

Recommended by Erica from A Girl Who Wanders

Brisbane is my hometown and a place I intend on staying for a very long time. Why? Because it has everything! Unlike its capital city counterparts of Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane offers all the perks at a fraction of the cost. High on my list of places to visit is Southbank, the home of performing arts and Queensland culture as well as back alley bars and river front dining. Southbank also features Australia’s only inner-city beach, a man-made marvel which takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city and into a tropical oasis with sparkling waters and white, sandy beaches.

West End is another suburb I highly recommend visiting, with its hipster vibe, insanely good coffee and street markets to keep you shopping for hours. If you’re after a view of the city from the top, head up to Mt Coot-tha for its stunning 360 views of the city and the surrounding hinterland. I also highly recommend climbing the Brisbane Story Bridge for an extra special addition to your trip, as the view is stunning and the adrenalin rush one not to be missed!

10. Gold Coast
Best Places To Visit In Australia - Gold Coast

Recommended by Erica from A Girl Who Wanders

If you’re looking for a destination that has it all, search no further and get yourself to the Gold Coast! With arguably some of the best beaches in Australia, the Gold Coast is my “go-to” spot during the hot summer months. But if lazing about on soft, white sandy beaches or swimming in the crystal clear ocean doesn’t take your fancy, the Gold Coast Hinterland is only a short drive from the beach and has some of the most amazing walking tracks and viewpoints in Queensland.

My favourite thing about the Gold Coast is how the vibe is extremely laid back yet also electric, with locals and tourists alike enjoying the “Sunday sesh” atmosphere of the day and the party scene that comes to life as soon as the sun goes down. If you’re planning on visiting the Gold Coast anytime soon, my personal recommendations for the best places to visit are Burleigh Heads beach and the Lamington National Park.

Gold Coast hostels from $21 a night
