Travelling For Holidays in Australia in 2013
If you will be traveling to or from Australia in 2013, the best time to do so would be during the holidays. Australia is the only country in the world that is also a continent. As a result, it is one of the largest countries on Earth (by area). Summer is when most people travel in the South, while domestic travel is most prevalent during Holy Week/Easter. If you want to take a cruise to Australia, the best time to do so would be anywhere from November to February.
Australia’s largest and most popular city is Sydney and it is located in the New South Wales region. If you ever visit Australia, you should definitely visit Sydney and see the world-famous Sydney Opera House. Australia also has a unique wildlife that tourists should definitely get a chance to see in its natural habitat. Exotic animals like Kangaroos, Koalas, and Wallabies are fairly common in Australia.
Last but not least, another must-see location in Australia is the Uluru Rock (also known as Ayers Rock) located in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Area. I would recommending not climbing the rock if you are not in excellent physical shape but the decision to climb is up to you. Uluru is also sacred to the Aboriginies, who own the land.
