In 2015, I wrote a blog post about five locations in Australia that I wanted to visit or revisit.
I still stand by this list, and while I am yet to see or revisit these locations, I know I will get there one day.
Here are five more places in Australia that I’m adding to my bucket list.
Flinders Ranges – South Australia
Located approximately 5 hours north of Adelaide, South Australia are the Flinders Rangers and Wilpena Pound.
Wilpena Pound is a naturally formed amphitheatre and a geological wonderland.
Visit Flinders Ranges and Outback.
Uluru & kata tjura national park – Northern Territory
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National park is a World Heritage site listed for its natural and cultural values.
Located approx 4.5 hours west of Alice Springs, Northern Territory.
I have visited Uluru-Kata Tjuta twice in my lifetime. When I was 8 and again when I was 16.
I look forward to visiting and exploring the land as an adult and learning more about the aboriginal culture and history.
mungo – News South Wales
Located just 2 hours north of Mildura, Victoria is Mungo national park, another World Heritage location. Most famous for Mungo Lady & Mungo Man.
Mungo is rich in aboriginal history & ancient culture dating back over 50,000 years.
I remember visiting Mungo with my parents as a young adult. We only spent a day there, so I never really got to appreciate what I was seeing at the time.
Now older and wiser I’d like to return to Mungo and learn more about the aboriginal history and culture of the area.
For more info go to Visit Mungo
Snowy Mountains – News South Wales
The Snowy Mountain region isn’t just for snow bunnies. In fact, you will never find me there in the winter, because me and snow, yeah totally not my thing.
For me, the Snowy Mountains are about exploring the ruggered landscape, bushwalking, hiking, camping and exploring the wilderness. You might also see me climb Australia’s highest peak, Mount Kosciuszko.
Located just an hour from Canberra, 7ish hours from Melbourne, or 5ish hours from Sydney
Bibbulmun Track – Western Australia
From Albany to Perth WA this hiking track is 1000m long and is one of the world’s great long-distance walking trails.
You can do it in one go and it takes about 6-8 weeks. Or you can do it in sections.
The track is divided into nine sections of varying lengths, for you to do in your own time.
While I was born and spent my early childhood in Western Australia, there is not much of the area that is familiar to me. This is why I would love to go and hike the trails and immerse myself in the WA landscape.
