5 Places I want to visit in Australia

They say Australia is the lucky country, and I guess I am lucky, because I have seen a lot of Australia.

Most my travels where in my younger kid days.

Now that I am a parent I would love my kids to have the same experiences that I had growing up.

5 places in Australia I would love to visit or even revisit would be the following:

Kangaroo Island

Located In South Australia, it is Australia’s 3rd largest island.

It’s a short flight from Adelaide or a ferry ride from Cape Jervis.

Why I want to go, because it looks like a stunning place to visit.

The Bungle Bungles / Purnululu National Park

Located in Kimberly ranges in Western Australia the Purnululu National Park is on the World Heritage list.

I remember visiting the Bungle Bungles as a kid.

I remember getting bogged twice, getting bitten by green bottom ants, getting lost, finding aborginal artwork that properly has never been seen by white man, and yet having the time of my (7 year old) life.


Yes the entire state!

In 2005 I visited Tasmania with the family.  I’ve always wanted to go back.  There is just so much to see and do.

I see it as the perfect place to visit for a camping/outdoor holiday.


Located at the top of Australia in the Northern Territory. It’s about 170km south of Darwin.

Now I’ve been to the Northern Territory and Darwin, but at the time we didn’t have a 4wd so going into Kakadu never happened.

A place to visit just before the wet season.

Lord Howe Island

Lord Howe Island is an irregularly crescent-shaped volcanic remnant in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand.

Not sure if it in the New South Wales Zone, but looks amazing.


I’m noticing a water location theme here, that was unintentional.

One thing is for sure, we have a lot of stunning places in Australia, and I would love to visit them all one day.
