Let’s face it, Australia counts as one of the most exciting countries to be in. The topography with the interesting rock formations, the breathtaking lakes and beaches, the flora and fauna that can only be found in Australia, count for the never-ending possibilities for adventure that’s why people from all over the world want to take a trip to Australia at least once in their lifetime. This Valentine’s Day 2016, plan a trip with your significant other and explore the best things that Australia has to offer.
For the Beach Bums
Hamilton Island is the “capital” of the Whitsunday Islands which has its home in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef. This is the hub for touring the rest of the Whitsunday Islands. If you can’t do without your conveniences, you may want to stay in Hamilton Island then take advantage of available cruise packages for the rest of the Whitsundays.
Whitehaven Beach is accessible via Hamilton Island. The sand is practically unspoiled and a couple can enjoy any of several tour packages that may include touring the island by plane. If you want a private beach getaway in unspoiled environs, taking a trip to Whitehaven Beach is the best thing for you and your bae.
For the Adventure Seekers
Exploring Australia won’t be the same without the “odd” attractions. Take for example Tailem Bend’s pink lake. It’s located between Tailem Bend and Meningie, and the pink shade was created by the algae. It’s more for sightseeing and not swimming, however, so you may want to leave your swimming gear home.
