Five Fab Favourites
I consider these five places as my favourites in Australia and I encourage you to visit if you ever get the opportunity.
1. Australia’s Red Centre
Uluru in Central Australia is an amazingly beautiful part of the world. It’s called the Red Centre for a good reason – as it’s red and dry and the centre of Australia. Uluru itself was quite surprising – it’s surface wasn’t smooth like I thought it would be; it had a spiritual effect on me which I wasn’t expecting and it was beautiful in every light – sunrise, sunset…it didn’t matter as the light played tricks and kept you watching!
Wineglass Bay and Maria Island on the East Coast and the towns on the Wild West Coast were my favourites. The history of Tasmania is full of interesting stories and we absorbed as much as we could while walking and cycling.
3. Adnyamathanha Country, Flinders Ranges South Australia
Adnyamathanha Country in South Australia’s Flinders Ranges was an amazing experience. We joined a group walk at Iga Warta for two weeks and were immersed into the Aboriginal culture as we walked down the ancient Frome River following in the footsteps of the local indigenous people. We were made to feel like family and came away with a whole new respect for their history, culture, rock art and family connections to the land.
4. Jervis Bay and NSW South Coast
Located on the South Coast of New South Wales Jervis Bay is a pristine coastal area which boasts the whitest and squeakiest sand in the whole of Australia!
5. Tumbarumba, NSW
My home town of Tumbarumba may be off the beaten track for many but it is a beautiful community with Australia’s highest peak Mt Kosciuszko in our backyard! It is a small rural town in New South Wales, halfway between Sydney and Melbourne.
I hope this whets your appetite for visiting some of the lesser known areas of Australia. It’s a vast and beautiful country and deserves to be explored!

NOTE: I have entered this post in the 2019 Bloggers Bash Post Competition which has the theme of FIVE. It’s the 5th year of the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards and the committee have asked to see our best post using 5 as the main topic. This post fits the bill for me!! The word limit is 375 words not including the title and it cost 5 pound to enter. There are prizes at stake too 🙂 Judging will take place with winners announced at the Bash in London on June 15 2019.
