Lost In Nature: Australia

When we were dreaming about Australia, we were dreaming about a paradise of pure blue and green (and orange). The countless shades of the ocean, the rainforest and the desert. Since it’s a vast continent, we didn’t have time to see the desert this time. But we’ve seen all the fabulous shades of blue and green!

The plants, animals and flowers we’ve seen in Australia were all very special, and most of them we haven’t seen before. Because they can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. Though Australian cities – we visited Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane – are cool, but they are nothing compared to the natural beauties of Australia.

Great Otway, Victoria, Australia

Australia is a land ruled by nature. Very few inhabitants. Harsh and extreme conditions. Cute and venomous creatures. Countless magical beaches.

Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia

Magical beaches with almost no one around.

Breathtaking coastal views and rocks formations.

Countless tropical sand islands. Like the Whitsundays, a beautiful and unspoilt paradise of 74 islands along the east coast of Queensland.

Daintree, the oldest continuously surviving tropical rainforest in the world that meets the ocean. And it’s about 165 million years old!

And koalas. We could never ever get bored of them.

And we’ve never seen a large city like Sydney having so many stunning, crystal clear bays and beaches.

There are a lot of wonders that couldn’t fit in that 3 weeks we’ve spent in Australia. We are already yearning to return. And we will.

  1. Beautiful photos! I’m yet to explore the natural attractions of Australia. I have been to places like Barossa valley, Great Ocean Road and Yarra valley, but there’s still a lot more to discover.
