10 Incredible Australian Photos That Makes It A Great Destination

Australia is a land like no other. This incredible island continent has plenty to offer whether you’re hugging the shores, city-hopping, or getting away to get a truly good look at the Never Never (as the true Outback is known by many locals). If you haven’t been motivated recently to grab that campervan hire and get on holiday then take a look at these incredible Australian photos to see why Australia is so awesome.

10 Incredible Australian Photos

1. Sydney Australia Shoreline

This picture from Milson Point gives an incredible photographic view of the Sydney Australia shoreline. The city looks beautiful, sunny, and there is the incredibly famous Sydney Opera House that is a sight to truly behold. Doesn’t this picture make you want to get out and about? Sydney is an incredible city, like this simple day shot shows.

2. Duck-Billed Platypus

Do I really need to say more? One of the coolest animals in the world. This very strange and thoroughly unique mammal can be found outside of zoos in only one place in the world and that is Australia. If you want some incredible Australian photos that will get attention when you’re back from holiday, one like this will do it!

3. Koalas

Australia is also home to koalas. While this picture is beyond adorable as you see the baby with her mom, both munching quite contently in the photo. They can be pretty aggressive in the wild if approached. However, getting a good photograph like this or a view of these amazing animals in the wild only happens in the Land Down Under.

4. Melbourne Night Time River Walk

Not all of Australia is the wilderness. There are several spectacular cities, so Sydney isn’t the only great place to stop if you enjoy the urban lifestyle. This picture shows what the smaller city of Melbourne has to offer. A gorgeous Riverwalk shot at night that allows you to enjoy that special beauty that a good city view at night can truly provide in its own special way.

5. Truly Middle Of Nowhere

The term “the middle of nowhere” gets used a lot, but generally is an exaggeration. After all, there always has to be something, right? This picture shows that if you’ve ever wanted the experience of true isolation, somewhere where you can really experience the “sound of silence,” then this is the place for you for something truly unique and awe-inspiring.

6. Uluru (The incredible sandstone picture everyone has seen)

This is one of those sites that pictures just can’t do justice, and yet this is a pretty fine looking picture, isn’t it? Seeming to just explode out from the ground in the middle of nowhere in the desert, this sandstone plateau is an Aboriginal holy site. It offers a natural look that you just aren’t going to find elsewhere.

7. Great Campsites

Free camping is found throughout much of Australia and that means you have many options when it comes to setting up for the day (or night). When you are taking care of your campervan hire try not to get too excited thinking about all the amazing potential campsites that are out there, just waiting for the right campervan and explorer to find it and settle down during an adventure. This great picture is just one of thousands of potential breathtaking campsites waiting to be discovered.

8. Professional Rugby Is A Big Deal

If you’ve never seen a professional rugby game in person, you’re missing out. Rugby is one of the biggest sports in all of Australia, and the action starts and doesn’t stop throughout the entire game. Being around a ravenous and knowledgeable fan base just helps you tap into the excitement and feel like you’re really part of this brand new experience. There are a few places that like their rugby almost as much as the Aussies, but there aren’t many.

9. The Beaches Are Varied & Amazing

Australia might be home to the best selection of beaches in the world. Whether you’re looking for serious surfing waves, calm white sand shores that stretch for as far as the eye can see; or out of the way gems that offer incredible beach caves, rock formations; and plenty of opportunities to take incredible Australian photos, you have a wide array of choices to find all three!

Australia has about every type of beach you can imagine and plenty of shoreline to explore, so get out there and have a look!

10. Tasmania Is Incredible

The island of Tasmania isn’t just home to the famous and aptly named Tasmanian Devil, but it has some of the best national parks in all of Australia, and that is saying something. There are many incredible natural parks and protected wilderness areas to see, and the normal countryside is plenty pretty on its own, as this picture shows.

Tasmania is an exceptional holiday destination and you won’t be sorry you camped there.

As you probably already knew, there are many great reasons to see Australia. The Land Down Under has plenty to offer that are beyond what these incredible Australian photos can show. So take the time to do a little bit of planning before your campervan hire. Make sure to get out and enjoy the type of country that can give you photos like the one in this article!
