Best places to see in Australia

Sydney Harbour Bridge
If you’re ok with extraordinary heights, then it's time to grab your gear and start climbing! Scale the 200 steps to the Pylon Lookout atop the world’s tallest steel arch bridge. It has a breathtakingly beautiful 360-degree panorama at 440 feet above sea level. If you're afraid of heights, you can always drive, bike or walk between the Business District and Sydney’s North Shore.

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!

Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain
A long time ago, Old McDonald had a farm, which became an enormous domain. The Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain are at the site of Australia’s first farm. Peruse the Art Gallery of New South Wales or explore the grounds of the historic Government House. The Farm Cove walk takes you from the Opera House to Lady Macquarie’s Chair, which is a spectacular lookout point.

nib Stadium
Stadiums or Arenas
Are you a homesick footy fan? Fear not – you’ll be able to get your fix at the nib Stadium. The purple-clad Perth Glory team play their home games here, and the “Socceroos” (the national team) roll into town now and again. Whether you’re into football or rugby union, this is the place to come. nib Stadium’s where Western Force battle it out against the southern hemisphere’s best.
Accommodations near nib Stadium
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.
Accommodations near Chapel Street
Kings Park Botanical Gardens
Long live the Kings! This isn’t your average patch of inner-city parkland. It’s a prodigious expanse of gardens that showcases Perth’s funky flora – vivid banksias, fragrant acacias and even a majestically hoary boab tree. The Beedawong Cultural Space is worth a visit too, where you’ll learn the spiritual customs and practices of the Nyoongar of Western Australia.
