Australia’s unique untamed landscape conceals many hidden treasures. Across rugged coastlines and colourful landscapes are these five wildly different, only-in-Australia experiences.
Between November and March is when one of the largest loggerhead turtle nesting populations in the Pacific converges in Bundaberg. In the summer months, you can join a ranger-guided encounter on the beach to see the tiny hatchlings scurrying off to sea.
Comprehend just how vast and varied the heart of Australia is by crossing it by rail from Darwin to Adelaide (and vice versa) on The Ghan. Experience the landscape change from dense foliage to tough, dry desert, all in unrivalled luxury.
Relatively unknown compared to its Northern Hemisphere equivalent, yet visible almost all year, the aurora australis is a sight not easily forgotten. Head to South Cape on Tasmania’s southernmost tip, where there is minimal light pollution, to see this breathtaking phenomenon.
This Heritage-listed reef is one of the only places in the world where whale sharks regularly congregate. Between April and July, you can swim alongside these gentle giants in the wild.
This unique marvel of nature squeezes the equivalent of all of the water in Sydney Harbour through two narrow gorges during intense tidal currents. Experience the phenomenon from the air or on a purpose-built boat.
