Australia is a vast country that is just slightly smaller than the continental United States. So it probably shouldn’t be surprising that a country this large would also be home to some of the most unusual destinations and creatures in the world.
Those blessed with good looks tend to be self-absorbed, so it makes sense that Australians are always ready to sing the praises of their most scenic spots.
Among the many iconic sites and landmarks you can visit in Australia are Ayers Rock and the Sydney Opera House. While these spots are very popular with tourists, there are a number of tourist attractions in Australia that aren’t as well-known but are just as impressive.

Crumbling red and purple cliffs, massive red river-gums and a confetti of swirling galahs against blue sky provides a quintessential outback landscape. White-trunked trees clash with orange rock, cockatoos scream and sunsets explode.

Its proximity to the biggest city in Australia has made this scenic park a popular day trip for both tourists and locals alike. The park is probably best known for the Three Sisters, a rock formation that towers 900 meter (3000 foot) above the Jamison Valley.
