In November 2019, Australia was announced as Travel + Leisure’s Destination of the Year for 2020. Australia has vast land and a small population so if you see a lot of people there, they are mostly tourists. Aussies are some of the most resilient people you will ever meet, there was a wildfire outbreak and as devastating as that was, Aussies kept it moving, and so did tourists. People were advised to ensure they had travel insurance before traveling but it was a safe zone to travel to. There are a variety of things to do and places to visit in Australia that every being will find something that excites them. If you have been contemplating on where to go on holiday this year, a holiday to Australia might be the answer. Australia is popularly known for its wildlife and the many arts festivals but there is a lot more to Australia and these reasons are why people will not stop going there:
One of the most amazing things about Australia is its coastline, the beaches might be the most beautiful beaches you ever see in a country. The ones on the East coast are far busier than the ones on the western coastline. You can visit the free ones if you do not mind overly crowded places but the ones where you get to pay are much cooler and there is a lot more privacy. There is literally no time of the year you cannot visit the beach if it is unfavorable on the east coast it is most likely favorable on the western coast.
This is so important because not every coffee shop knows how to make a decent cup of coffee. The coffee here might be the best coffee you ever taste in your entire life. The signature coffee here is the creamy one and Melbourne is the city to be for the best coffee. From the coffee beans right until the time it is brewed, creamed and served. Australia never gets it wrong with the coffee.
The land here is so vast that the country does not have a uniform weather condition. Generally, there are four seasons across most of the country and a wet and dry season in the tropical north. The calendar has December to February is summer, March to May is autumn, June to August is winter and September to November is spring. But the good news is regardless of the weather there is always someplace to have fun in Australia.
Australia is so close to nature you do not necessarily have to leave your location to come in contact with wildlife. Every other day people post strange creatures on social media saying they found it at their doorstep or pathway or somewhere while in Australia and it does make for a good laugh but it must also be a thrill to be able to experience this first hand. Although, it gets crazy at times because you could also come in contact with wild, harmful animals.
Australia has some of the best wine valleys: Yarra Valley, Victoria; Hunter Valley, New South Wales; The Barossa Valley, South Australia; Margaret River, Western Australia; Coonawarra, South Australia all boast of very good wines. If you consider yourself a wine sommelier, you can visit some of these cities to enjoy the best wines you might ever test. Also, Australia has an array of wine tasting festivals lined up all year round. You could register with friends and have a swell time.
The people of Australia are very warm, friendly and accommodating. No wonder millions of tourists visit yearly, Australia is a top tourism destination, and if you haven’t planned to visit the country this year, begin to do so. There is still plenty of time and lots of activities and festivals coming up in Australia this year.
