So, we’ve finally come to the end of my list of underrated places! Because of all the pictures of each place, I chose to split them up, and I’m down to my final recommended underrated place: Alice Springs. 10. Alice Springs I didn’t have the greatest expectations when I came to Alice Springs. Like most …
My ninth underrated place in Australia is a little-known city in South Australia. It supposedly has the most millionaires per capita in the country (owing to its thriving aquaculture), but it has so much to offer the casual visitor! 9. Port Lincoln I’ve never been to an airport as small as the one at Port …
I’m going to switch gears here a little bit and move on to amazing, underrated cities in Australia. Everyone visits at least one of the big cities while Down Under, but there are quite a few little gems that shouldn’t be overlooked! 7. Port Hedland I was so enamoured in this city that I dedicated …
While we’re on the topic of stunning outdoorsy destinations, I have another one on my list of underrated places in Australia: the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. 6. Blue Mountains Just a stone’s throw from Sydney are the stunning Blue Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Area. [Side note: after all the travelling I’ve done, …
So finally, a post that’s not about animals! Although it’s not as cute and furry, Kings Canyon is magnificent. There’s a resort directly at Kings Canyon if someone has a little more time, but it also just so happens to be about halfway between Alice Springs and Uluru, making it the most epic pit stop …
My fourth underrated place in Australia is actually an activity that can be done in several places around the country (kind of like koala cuddling from yesterday). It’s going on a crocodile cruise along Australian rivers! My first time in Australia, I went on these in Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park, and in the …
If you haven’t been able to tell yet, all three of my first underrated places have had to do with animals. I’ve separated my list by type, so after one more animal-related post tomorrow, I’ll be moving on to cities! Today’s underrated place is Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane (well, technically, one of its …
Today, I’m continuing on my list of the top 10 underrated places in Australia. My next location is Australia Zoo, which is in Beerwah, a town not too far from Brisbane. 2. Australia Zoo This is another place that, while spoken of fondly in guidebooks, does not garner the attention it deserves. I mean, where …
The time had finally arrived. It was my last full day in Australia. Heinrich had already gone home, and I was intent on utilizing this day to the fullest. I awoke in our rented apartment in the Gold Coast to the sound of light rapping on my door. “Mimi?” Deidre gently called through the door. …
Heinrich flew home the next morning. He had exactly 14 days off from work, and with the time difference and travel (the “lost” day on the way over), his time Down Under was just about up. After dropping Heinrich off at the airport, Deidre, Bill, and I headed toward the Gold Coast. I had hoped to …
