Australia is the largest country in Oceania and, with an area of 7,741,220 square kilometres, is the sixth largest country in the world. Located in the Earth’s southern hemisphere, its coastline is washed by the Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans.
Without a doubt, Australia is a unique destination. For this reason, many people want to travel to the country at some point in their lives. If your time has come, here are some of the things you need to know before travelling to Australia with one of the sexy Sheffield escorts and the 5 places you must visit.
What do you need to know before travelling to Australia?
To travel to Australia, you need a passport valid for six months. You will also need a tourist visa. This compulsory visa allows multiple entries for one year with a maximum stay of 3 months per visit.
No vaccinations are required for travel to Australia except for COVID vaccinations. However, if you are coming from countries with risk of Yellow Fever transmission, an international Yellow Fever vaccination certificate will be required.
The currency is the Australian dollar. You can change currency at the airport, bank or exchange bureau, but you may be charged a hefty fee.
If you are going to pay or withdraw money with your card in any of the ATMs in Australia, it is best to do it with a wallet card that saves on commissions. Remember that!
What to see in Australia?
1. Ayers Rock (Uluru)
If you’re looking for the most iconic place to visit in Australia, the great Ayers Rock (known as Uluru in the Aboriginal language) is your answer.
Uluru stands, like a giant reddish monolith, almost in the centre of the country. The limestone rock formation rises some 350 metres above the ground and its outline measures some 9.4 kilometres.
Around Uluru you can find a number of streams, caves and ancient paintings with sacred meanings.
2. The Twelve Apostles
This is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes to see in Australia with Melbourne escorts, and there are barely ten of the Twelve Apostles left. These limestone giants look lonely and fragile as they stand, on the front line, the onslaught of the ocean’s raging waters.
That water eroded away the rock that attached them to the cliffs, creating one of the most sought-after landscapes for those who choose to visit Australia. They are located in Port Campbell National Park, in the state of Victoria.
3. The Pinnacles in Nambung National Park
Australia’s west coast is one of the world’s wildest wilderness areas. Of all the drives in Australia, few can match the great feeling of direct contact with nature that you’ll find here.
Most travellers who decide to travel the thousands of kilometres of the western highway, that cuts through the southern red sand, start their journey in the city of Perth and head north. After only 200km or so, you’ll come across some curious limestone formations that rise up like reddish ochre-skinned creatures in Nambung National Park.
The limestone material of which the Pinnacles are composed comes from the shells that once populated the area. Without a doubt, this is one of the most curious sights to see in Australia.
4. The Great Barrier Reef
Every diver in the world puts the Great Barrier Reef at the top of the list of places to visit in Australia. The world’s largest coral reef lies off the coast of Queensland in the north-east of the country. Boatloads of deepsea lovers depart daily from cities such as Cairns and Townsville.
More than 100 different species of sharks, manta rays, turtles, 1,800 different species of fish and 400 species of coral make up the most spectacular seabed on the planet. If you only snorkel, don’t worry because you’ll also be able to enjoy yourself to the fullest, finding a large number of species at very shallow depths.
Sydney is a modern and open city, where people not only work but also have fun. Located by the sea, it has some of the best beaches such as the world-famous Bondi Beach and is home to a wide range of nationalities, including travellers, second and third generations and expatriates who have come to Australia in search of new opportunities.
Famous landmarks include the Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Chinatown and the Botanic Gardens.
Close to Sydney are the Blue Mountains. Just 50km away, it’s a perfect nature getaway with one of the hot Penrith escorts, for those passing through the city. Its limestone formations aren’t particularly tall, but they’re home to lush, lush forests ranging from eucalyptus to rainforest, which thrive in their deepest gorges. If you go deep into the wilderness, you’ll see koalas, grey kangaroos, strange reptiles and even dingoes. Don’t miss it
