10 Only in Australia Experiences

There are probably a million amazing experiences that you can enjoy only in Australia. But to make things easier for you, we've narrowed it down a bit. Check out some of the best of what's up down under, and discover for yourself why there truly is nothing like Australia.


Sail the reef, trek the rainforest

Stretching a length comparable to the western coast of the US, The Great Barrier Reef is the only living organism that can be seen from space. To sample the best of this coral eco system, explore the reef from above and below in the Whitsundays. Seaplanes deliver visitors over romantically shaped heart reef or Whitehaven Beach where sand is so pure it was used to make the lens for the Hubble telescope. Neighboring the reef, find the oldest rainforest in the world. Lucky for visitors, the Daintree rainforest is also the most luxurious. Base yourself at a beachside hideaway or rainforest retreat for a uniquely Australian experience.
