Known for its diverse wildlife and landscapes, friendly people, and exceptional food scene, there's certainly a lot that we've missed about vacationing in Australia.

From Sydney's Handa Opera on the Harbour to the Twelve Apostles by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, there is just so much to see, do, and explore!

Ready for a much needed holiday? Here are some fun things you can look forward to enjoying on your Aussie trip:

1. World-class nature, wildlife, and white sandy beaches

It's a widely known fact that Australia is home to some of the most breathtaking beaches in the world.

Whether it is Murrays Beach, located in Jervis Bay Territory a few hours away from Canberra, that is lined with lush green forests, or Misery Beach over on the shores of Western Australia, the pristine waters will definitely leave a mark on your mind (and Instagram feeds :P).

Voted as Australia's Best Beach for 2022, and often described as an artist's sketchbook come to life, you'll also be able to spot seals, dolphins, and returning migratory whales at Misery Beach.

Other iconic wildlife you can encounter throughout Australia's eight states and territories include Tasmanian devils and koalas in New South Wales, as well as crocodiles in the Northern Territory.

Wanna play a hands-on role in ethical and sustainable wildlife conservation efforts? You can do so by participating in Citizen Science Tourism! Operating across Australia, check out the highly-rated Echidna Walkabout Tours, where you'll get to conduct bird surveys and observe wombats, wallabies, and lyrebirds in their natural habitats.

2. Indulging your appetite with amazing food and trendy drinks

Delicious brunch spreads, farm-to-table food philosophies, fresh, bountiful seafood, Muslim-friendly menus, and more — Australians love nothing more than to share and welcome everyone to delectable and creative gastronomy.

When it comes to drinks, you'll be able to find everything from natural wine, craft beer, and hyper-local spirits, to non-alcoholic and eco-friendly innovations from an industry that strives to diversify with sustainable practices. 

Of course, this includes Australia's famous coffee culture which you can best discover in Melbourne. 

3. Going on unforgettable and scenic road trips

There are majestic and diverse sights to behold everywhere you go in Australia, from Melbourne all the way to Perth. You'll get to see unique wildlife, pristine beaches, lush rainforests, historic towns, and rich Indigenous culture.

The best part? Many are found right on the doorsteps of Australia's cities. You can drive the Great Southern Touring Route or explore the Legendary Pacific Coast itinerary between Sydney and Brisbane.

PSA: Before you travel, make sure to factor in enough time for your visa application.

Due to overwhelming demand and an influx of applications, you may have to wait about six to eight weeks for visa approval, subject to processing timelines indicated on the Australian Department of Home Affairs website.

So, make sure to plan ahead and apply for your visa early. Or, book a flight ticket that allows date flexibility. Alternatively, you can also consider only confirming your flight booking upon receiving your visa approval.
