The city of Sydney is one of the most important cities in Australia, sometimes being confused with its capital. It is very common for those who visit the metropolis to return from there wanting to move permanently-and it is not difficult to explain why. The place is full of tourist and cultural attractions such as the Opera House, Darling Harbour, the famous Sydney Zoo and Mainly Beach. In addition, the panoramic view of the city through the Sydney Tower is a must for anyone visiting this student city, as it provides an incredible view of the city and its surroundings.
The city is one of the most beautiful in the world and boasts quality of life and options for sports, leisure, ecotourism and culture. Be sure to take the ferry across Sydney Harbor and discover the famous waves-and maybe even surf in the sea, at Bondi Beach, and there, discover the bars located by the sea.
Tasmania is an island region and Commonwealth Australian state located 240 kilometers off the southeastern coast of the country. The island is one of the most visited points in Australia due to its natural beauty, with high conservation of the original vegetation, with green valleys, charming villages, quiet and cozy cities and typically Australian beaches: beautiful, reserved and practically deserted. The temperature of the place is ideal for those who do not like extremes: being mild in summer and cool in winter. A trip to the site is a must for anyone visiting Australia.
Kakadu National Park
Kakadu National Park is a vast area of natural and cultural concentration located in the city of Darwin, in northern Australia. The site is renowned for providing visitors with the opportunity to experience many aspects of Australia’s natural flora and fauna-such as over 275 different species of birds – and to admire Aboriginal art from the region’s rock faces. The park brings together about 68 species of mammals, more than 75 species of reptiles and more than 10,000 species of insects. The site is cared for and conserved by generations of aborigines who live in the region, and is considered one of the UNESCO world heritage sites.
Water natural attractions
The part of Australia’s aquifer is equally beautiful and attractive. That’s because the island country has some of the best beaches and water attractions in the world.

The place is full of fish of the most diverse species, from dolphins, rays, giant turtles and more than 400 types of corals make up the region.
