Australia is one of the very best tourist destinations in the world. Of course, the issue with that is that pretty much everyone else has realized the same thing which means that it’s something of a tourist hotspot. Of course, that mostly happens if you spend your time visiting all of the most well-known areas in Australia. To help you beat the crowds and really make the most of your trip, here are a few slightly less touristy destinations in the land down under.
Fraser Island is a part of Australia that’s getting more and more popular over the last few years, but the great thing is that it’s so big, with over 85 km of beaches, that you’ve got plenty of space to avoid other people. With places like the Sunshine Coast and Noosa to explore, being able to get around Fraser Island on a 4X4 or as part of a tour offers some amazing things to see including the chance to see the elusive Dingoes that call the island their home.
Of course, if you really want to get away from other people in Australia, what could be better than getting into the middle of nowhere. A lot of people don’t bother considering the Outback when planning a trip, assuming that if you’ve seen one desert, you’ve seen them all. However, that simply isn’t true. There are some amazing things to see out in the wilderness, from the amazing wildlife to spending the night staring up at the starry night sky. Not only that but there are so many amazing rock formations from the Pinnacles to the Devil’s Marbles that you’re never stuck for a photo opportunity.
Just because you want to avoid getting jostled around by other tourists doesn’t mean that you necessarily want to spend all of your time out in the middle of nowhere. If that’s the case than Adelaide might be a perfect choice. There are plenty of shops and restaurants to try out and if you want something a bit different you can always try and climb up to the summit of mount lofty.
Want to experience the beauty of Australian beaches without dealing with the crowds on Bondi? Well, that’s where Tasmania comes in. Tasmania not only has some of the finest beaches anywhere in Australia, especially in the Bay Of Fires but it also boasts the some of the cleanest air anywhere in the world. It’s the kind of place that is pretty remote which means that a lot of holidaymakers tend to give it a miss.
Of course, it’s important to remember that, as frustrating as other tourists can be, there are plenty of locals and natives who see you the same way. So when you’re visiting some of the less popular destinations in Australia make sure that you’re always respectful and that you don’t act like too much of a tourist.
