Best places to see in Australia

Sydney Opera House
What do the Sydney Philharmonic, Dave Chappelle and Verdi’s Rigoletto have in common? Absolutely nothing, other than the fact that you’ll catch everything from opera to rock concerts, and stand-up comedy to Shakespearean tragedy inside this world-famous iconic building. Go behind the scenes with a guided tour or dine at one of the nearby restaurants.

National Gallery of Victoria
Ancient stories are often the basis of Aboriginal art. William Barak is possibly the best-known Wujunderi painter. He created abstract compositions of rituals and traditions in primordial shapes, using a palate of burnt orange and harvest that’s as visually commanding as Australia’s landscape. View his works, plus swathes of other important world art from Bernini’s to Picasso’s.
Accommodations near National Gallery of Victoria
Manly Beach
At Manly Beach, every afternoon is the adventure of a lifetime. Swim between the red and yellow flags or take on the waves with a surf lesson. The Oceanway Walk takes you to Shelley Beach, a fantastic spot for snorkeling and exploring the rock pools. Check out The Corso, a strip of shops and restaurants, or have a picnic of fish and chips on the promenade.
Accommodations near Manly Beach
Chapel Street
Shopping Areas
Melbournians like their cakes fluffy, coffee strong and shops plentiful. First-timers often careen along Chapel Street by tram, but it’s always more fun to walk. The sides-streets brim with urban cafés to blend in with buff, bearded and beautiful. One end is for shopping, the other entertainment. If you find yourself somewhere in the middle, head to Jam Factory – a mall lined with chain stores.

Cottesloe Beach
Popular Areas
Once you visit Cottesloe, you’ll see why Aussies and beaches go together like sandals and Speedos. Fine sand, clear waters and a whole lot of sunshine is a winning combo on Perth’s most beloved beach! Fuel up on tea and scones from Indian Tea House or pick up a posh picnic from the Boatshed Market. Then plonk yourself on the sand and watch those endorphins go through the roof!
