5 Places I want to visit in Australia

They say Australia is a lucky country, and I guess I am lucky because I have seen a lot of Australia.

Most of my travels were in my younger kid days.

Now that I am a parent I would love my kids to have the same experiences that I had growing up.

5 places in Australia I would love to visit or even revisit would be the following:

Kangaroo Island

Located In South Australia, it is Australia’s 3rd largest island.

It’s a short flight from Adelaide or a ferry ride from Cape Jervis.
Why I want to go because it looks like a stunning place to visit.

The Bungle Bungles / Purnululu National Park

Located in Kimberly ranges in Western Australia the Purnululu National Park is on the World Heritage list.
I remember visiting the Bungle Bungles as a kid.

I remember getting bogged twice, getting bitten by green bottom ants, getting lost, finding aboriginal artwork that properly has never been seen by white men, and yet having the time of my (7-year-old) life.


Yes, the entire state!
In 2005 I visited Tasmania with the family.  I’ve always wanted to go back.  There is just so much to see and do.

I see it as the perfect place to visit for a camping/outdoor holiday.


Located at the top of Australia in the Northern Territory. It’s about 170km south of Darwin.
Now I’ve been to the Northern Territory and Darwin, but at the time we didn’t have a 4wd so going into Kakadu never happened.

A place to visit just before the wet season.

Lord Howe Island


Lord Howe Island is an irregularly crescent-shaped volcanic remnant in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand.

Not sure if it’s in the New South Wales Zone, but looks amazing.

I’m noticing a water location theme here, that was unintentional.

One thing is for sure, we have a lot of stunning places in Australia, and I would love to visit them all one day.

    Beautiful! I’ve always wanted to visit Australia, and these look like great destinations. I’ll keep them in mind! Thanks for sharing!

  2. You really do have some stunning places to visit there! I already have a list of things I want to see when I eventually do get there. However, after reading this I have just added more. I can’t believe I didn’t even have Tazmania on my shortlist:)
    Diving in the Great Barrier that is #1 for me. Seeing the Pinnacles is also on my list, I used to plan on the Sydney marathon, but to be honest after seeing some of your race locations I have opened the door on that one, to maybe something else, LOL
    I used to have an aunt that lived there when I was younger, she would send me things and tell me stories, it created a huge desire to visit Australia one day. I would watch your TV shows and movies as I was younger just to love it more. (Snowy river saga, both the Disney movies and the TV series, LOL) In fact if I could pick a perfect accent I would want in a dream man, he would be Australian, LOL Yeah, I know your rolling your eyes at me right now, but that’s okay haha.

    1. You should check out the outback marathon. That’s set in the red centre. Entry fee’s are expensive but it also includes camping accommodation.
      I think that race would totally be up your alley.
      It’s a winter race, but NT is still quite warm in winter (just really cold nights).
