With all the things to do and places worth visiting, Australia is the next thing on our bucket list.  A visit to the land down under offers a bit of a challenge to backpackers though, whereas a handful of free time can afford travellers with priceless sceneries and fresh air. There is adventure for the wanderer and solitude for the seeker from retreating in secluded beaches in Sydney to filling one’s appetite with divine sweets in Melbourne,  to falling in love with the impressive Australia’s wildlife.

So if you’re planning your next Queensland holidays,  consider these places, as we list down the quest for ultimate Australian getaway.
