Summer Sites To See In Australia

Posted on 30. Sep, 2013 by in Vacations

While considering the sites to see in Australia, most people imagine the rugged outback or the awesome surfing waves. Each of these offer days of entertaining fun, but there is more to Australia than international travelers may be picturing in their minds. If planning a vacation to Australia during the southern hemisphere’s summer season, consider taking in a cultural display or visiting one of the country’s stunning waterfalls.

The coastal walk between Sidney’s Bondi and Tamarama beaches is beautiful at any time of year, but it is especially interesting during the annual Sculpture by the Sea event. This event was established in the summer of 1996 and has continued to draw in locals and tourists from all over the world every summer. Sculpture by the Sea features sculptural art created by over 50 national and international artists. If you are not able to walk the full length, do not be discouraged. You do not have to miss out. You can access the coastal display and obtain an informational brochure from several different points along the way. This year’s event will be held from October 24th through the 10th of November.

Located in Queensland’s Girringun National Park, the nearly 300 meter high Wallaman Falls are a popular attraction. Although these falls are at their highest rate of flow during the height of the wet season (summer), the park and falls are worth a visit at any time of year.  Wallaman Falls are a favorite destination for good reason. The national park in which they reside contains some of the world’s most ancient rain forests, the falls are easily accessed by hiking trail or may  be viewed in full from the start of the trail, and they are one of the tallest waterfalls in all of Australia.

Whether you choose to include either or both of these fantastic places in your list of sites to see in Australia, be sure to bring comfortable shoes, carry lots of water, and above all, do not forget your camera!
