Australia is one of our favorite destinations, so we thought we would list our top 3 Australian destinations of the season, hand-picked by our TravAddict team.  If you prefer to take it a little slower on tour and prefer scenery and outdoor activities, then Australia is a great destination for you.  The beaches, the unique flora and fauna, the adventurous activities, and the people (of course) are definitely highlights.  The options for a tourist in Australia are endless, but we thought we would tell you a little about three destinations that we think are amazing:

The Whitsunday’s.
The Whitsunday’s is made up of 74 beautiful islands off the Great Barrier Reef.  It is is a beautiful coastal destination with great options for  sailing, island stays, swimming with tropical fish and visiting beautiful beaches.  Topdeck Travel includes a great Whitsunday’s 2 night sailing package on their Capricorn Suntanner 2011.

Kangaroo Island.
Australia is home to some very unique animals, and it can be exciting to meet a lot of them for the first time.  Getting up close and personal with a lot of these animals is very rare in the wild, and most tourists will encounter them in a zoo.  On Kangaroo island however, you can experience a number of Australian animals in their natural habitat.   You are likely to see wild koala’s, wallabies, Australian fur seals, dolphins and more…..

Coober Pedy
Coober Pedy is considered to be the Opal Capital of the world.  It is also very well known for it’s unique style of under-ground living.  Due to the intense weather in this outback town, many buildings were established underground.  You can visit underground shops, drink in an underground pub, and they even have underground hotels.  It is a unique town, one like no other in the world and it will definitely be one you will remember.  Intrepid Travel offers a great 10 day outback adventure that passes through this amazing gem that not many tourists have heard about.
