The land down under offers exquisite beauty and hundreds of places to visit. With its surreal nature and one-of-a-kind places, Australia is among the top destinations each year. So, if you are looking for a place that is far from your everyday life and obligations but still want to be surrounded by people, explore a different culture, and visit famous places, this marvellous island-country is a perfect choice.
Due to its vastness, it’s impossible to visit all the places in Australia. However, if you have 10 days, it’s enough to see the best and most visited tourist spots there. Although it’s very difficult to plan a 10-day holiday there, one way to do it is by exploring the east coast of Australia. You can start by settling in one of the great hotels in Melbourne, such as hotel Chadstone, and then move north along the east coast, all the way to Cairns.
It’s the second most-visited city in Australia, which makes it the right place to start your journey. Melbourne is known for its high quality of life and is considered as Australia’s capital of culture. It’s because this city hosts plenty of events each year, such as the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, the Presidents Cup, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Formula 1 Australian Grand Pix, and the Australian Open.
Apart from the plentiful events, there are also great bars, restaurants, and shopping centres. So, you can enjoy the local food and drinks while being surrounded by positive people and great vibes. Speaking of cuisine, Melbourne has a diverse and rich cuisine due to multicultural diversity. And, of course, there are the famous: Royal Botanic Gardens, Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne Zoo, National Gallery of Victoria, Federation Square, and the Royal Exhibition Building among others.
Moving north along the east coast, the next stop on your journey is the most-visit city in Australia, Sydney. Having in mind that it’s one of the largest cities, it’s no wonder there are lots of places to visit. Of course, one of the first things you must go to is the Sydney Opera house and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. If you don’t go there and take a picture, it’s like you haven’t been to Australia.
Apart from these two places, there are also incredible beaches which are a 10-min walk away from the city centre. One of the most famous and most beautiful beaches is Bondi Beach, so you shouldn’t miss a perfect laid-back day spent carelessly lying on the sand with a cocktail in your hand. Other places you should visit in Sydney are the Royal Botanic Gardens, Taronga Zoo, Darling Harbour, Sydney Tower, Queen Victoria Building, and The Rocks.
Ok, so we guess you might not have heard of this city probably because it’s not too exposed or as visited as the previous two. But, that doesn’t mean is less interesting or beautiful than them. As a matter of fact, Cairns is the perfect getaway from reality due to its mesmerizing beaches, turquoise water, and rainforests. So, you can enjoy your days on some of its beaches or explore the rainforests by taking a gondola ride.
Speaking of the ocean, Cairns is a getaway to the Great Barrier Reef. That means you can go diving, scuba diving, and snorkelling to explore the unwater world of this natural wonder. There is also the Fitzroy tropical island you can visit. And also there are a lot of amazing natural sights near, such as the Wet Tropic of Queensland and the Daintree National Park.
Apart from these natural beauties, you can also enjoy your days in the local bars and taste wonderful food in the restaurants. And, there are some great shops where you can find whatever you need. Regardless of where you are, Cairns is a place which promises to give you the peace and calmness you are looking for.
As you can see, there are so many incredible places to visit in these three cities. And that’s what makes this route the perfect choice for a 10-day (or 2-week) holiday. So, pack your bags, book your flight and accommodation, and get let yourself to the adventure.
