Australia, also known as Oz or the land Down Under, apparently has it all. With cosmopolitan cities like Melbourne and Sydney, glorious beaches, virgin rainforests, along with the unforgiving Outback, it does not fail to impress and also guarantees the trip of a life. The famed landmarks of the Sydney Harbour, the Great Barrier Reef and Ayers Rock (Uluru) are on each tourist’s bucket list, which most likely — includes spotting a number of Australia’s fascinating wildlife as well, ranging from completely cute (penguins, koalas and wallabies) to extremely dangerous (crocs, sharks, and snakes). But go off the beaten trail in the complete desolation of Kakadu’s wetlands and the unspoiled wilderness in Tasmania, and you’ll find what Oz is about. In any case, from snowy destinations to sandy beaches, a hotel is most likely conveniently located in the surrounding areas.
