The Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Opera House, The Great Barrier Reef and Uluru. Everyone has heard of these iconic places to visit in Australia and they should be on the travel bucket list of Australia experiences. 

But, Australia’s diversity stretches across a country almost as big as the US and is filled with adventures and off the beaten path destinations that few international, and local, tourists venture to. 

Arnhem Land, Northern Territory

Arnhem Land is a highly protected area and is governed by the Aboriginal elders of each of the small coastal communities.

Cape York Peninsula, Queensland

The Cape York Peninsula is a land of few people and prolific wildlife, amazing fishing, stunning scenery and many ancient aboriginal cultural sites. 

Kangaroo Island, South Australia

A vast majority of the island is a protected National Park and wilderness area. It is a place to relax and unwind and see native animals in their natural habitat. 

The Grampians, Victoria

I first heard about the Grampians, Victoria from my Swedish rock climbing friend. He’s rock climbed around the world and said the Grampians was his favourite, not just for the challenging rock climbs, but for the beauty and the peace and tranquility that comes with it being an off the beaten path Aussie experience. 

Port Macquarie, NSW North Coast

Uncrowded, miles of surfing beaches, an 8km coastal walk, wild dolphin and whale encounters, vineyards, activities for families, and the most magnificent sunsets.
