Australia is one of the most sought-after destinations in the world, whether you're looking for a weekend vacation, an adventure, or keen to meet some of the rarest wildlife on the planet. The best part about this vast oceanic country is that no matter what you choose, you won't go home disappointed. The country is famous for many reasons such as its vast stretches of beaches, famous buildings, unusual natural wonders, national parks, climate and many more. Don’t know where to start? Here are two unique destinations curated for you to enjoy a one-of-a kind experience in this large country.

Sydney Harbour, Sydney

Home to some of the most iconic attractions in the world including the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, Sydney Harbour is a tourist hub offering many water activities, beaches, gardens and so on. The best way to relax and escape from the busy city life is to board a dinner cruise in Sydney Harbour, which is a great alternative to regular waterfront dining. Hop on a multi-million dollar catamaran to make the most out of the harbour and take in the sights of the iconic landmarks, lit up with colourful lights, from three expansive outer decks. Don’t forget to click amazing photographs set against these landmark attractions! After taking in the views, you can head to the vast dining space and savour a sumptuous multi-cuisine buffet, prepared freshly by the onboard chefs. To add a bit of gusto you can purchase beverages and drinks from the fully licensed bar and raise a glass together with your fellow cruisers. With a classy and fun dining experience paired with stunning harbour views and photo ops, the Sydney Dinner cruise should be on top of your to-do list. Book your seats now!

Bay of Fires, Tasmania

Tasmania’s Bay of Fires is a heavenly bay on its northeastern coast and includes a magnificent coastline that stretches over 50 kilometres. It was one of Tasmania’s best kept secrets until 2015 when it was listed on Lonely Planet's Top 10 places to visit. With impressive sights including natural wildlife waiting to be discovered, throughout the bay, you can opt for many activities here. Walk the secluded beaches with pure white sand and seize a great opportunity to commune with nature or even your own thoughts, away from the crowd and traffic of the city. The most intriguing aspect of this wonderland is the orange hued boulders and the wind blasted rocks that take up unusual forms. The granite boulders turn orange by the touch of a symbiotic algae called lichen. The sight of these magical and odd boulders along with the white sandy beaches and blue waters (an orange-blue-white colour scheme) is truly a sight to behold and can be said to be every photographer's dream! Climb Mount William and experience a 360° view of both the oceanside and the inland. The trail is gently inclined, followed by a short steep scramble and as you ascend, watch out for animal tracks as well as some colourful wild flowers. Encountering other humans in the bay can be rare but you will definitely come across numerous furry, feathered, scaled or even a few spiky friends here. With pelicans, sea eagles, oystercatchers and much more, the bird life here is abundant, making it a great spot for birdwatching. Other than exploring the rugged regions, swimming in the numerous water bodies and meeting the native wildlife, you can also take a look at the Eddystone Lighthouse at Eddystone Point or explore the indigineous history of the land that can be found as glimpses of ancient lifeways throughout the land.
