Australia's Top Cities – Explore Australia

Australia is one of the top touristic destinations in the world and some of the country's best cities to visit as a tourist are listed below.


Gold Coast in Queensland

A sun-drenched coastline where the hip youth go for fancy yacht parties or take up water sports, the Gold Coast is a modern coastal region. The beaches are clean and beautiful and when you've had your fill of sun, sand and surfing you can travel inland. Once you are inland, you can visit its rainforests to escape the soul searching glare of the beach.


Alice Springs in Northern Territory

This is where you go to climb the Ayers Rock and enjoy a one of a kind experience in an authentic Australian outpost where you can try out desert motorbike rides and hike in rugged landscapes. The area is also known for being a home to indigenous Australians. If you ever visit Alice Springs, don't forget to visit the opal mining town, Coober Pedy. The area is as hot as an oven and residents live in underground homes that they've dugout in their dry land.


Perth in Western Australia

Perth is the epitome of laidback Australian cities where people of many ethnicities mingle and live the good life in peace. The King's Park in Perth is one of the world's biggest parks and is worth your while for exploring. The wineries and vineyards along the Margaret River present a picturesque view and a pleasant experience. The sunny weather, cleanliness of the city, good food and the perfect outdoor experience makes Perth a great place to visit and you could stay at one of its well-known serviced apartments. Australia does not get better than this free-spirited city.


Melbourne in Victoria

Melbourne is the antithesis of the more outdoor oriented Sydney. The bustling city of entertainment is worth a stay for at least two weeks. You could easily find accommodation at Oaks Hotels & Resorts, one of the many places available in Melbourne. The city retains the title as the cultural and food capital of Australia. The European inspired music clubs, the appealing art world and the plethora of fine dining restaurants, pubs and clubs make it hard to argue with this statement.


Darwin in Northern Territory

Darwin is scorching hot but the climate has also made it a haven for tropical wild animals. Kakadu National Park in Darwin is home to massive saltwater crocodiles, lethargic flatback turtles and numerous tropical birds. You will also be able to see aboriginal rock paintings that date back as far as the pre-historic era at the national park.


Adelaide in South Australia

The best time to visit this picturesque city is during the Adelaide Fringe Festival. The festival is a chance to drink, party and truly embrace the Australian spirit of cheeky and light-hearted fun. The Adelaide Oval holds football and cricket matches all year around. Adelaide is just a ferry ride away from Kangaroo Island where you can see adorable koalas and kangaroos. The sand dunes in Kangaroo Island are ideal for sand boarding too.
