Australia is the only place in the world that is its own country and continent. If you’re looking for a weekend getaway with great weather, great views, and great attractions – Australia is the place to go! Australia is home to the famous cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, and Brisbane. The cities are vibrant and offer amazing views of the coast. Although water is what most picture when thinking of Australia, there is also a vast piece of land in the center with desert that is called the outback. Some of the famous sites in this piece of the world are the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour. If looking for a once in a lifetime experience, try scuba diving in the Great Barrier for views of coral and a variety of exotic fish species. For an experience in the desert, check out Uluru, a massive sandstone rock formation.
