Trip to the antipodes: discovering Australia an unforgettable honeymoon
If until now the proposals have liked you but you have not felt that final tingling in your stomach, calm. We have another option that you can not say no to.
Australia, the country furthest away from Spain, cradle of unique animal species in the world, is the most risky and expensive but also the most exciting and amazing.
Australia is an authentic paradise that, despite having a large part of the desert territory, allows tourists to visit several natural parks and more than 700 lakes.
And since not everything is going to be land, it is essential to visit the Great Barrier Reef, the largest in the world!
Diving in it is a unique experience because there is no better place than this to enjoy a unique ecosystem in the world. From Cairns you can hire full day excursions in mini cruises to get up there, swim, snorkel and enjoy the natural wonders of the reef.
There is so much to see, feel and know in Australia, it is advisable to have more than 20 days off to visit it. In addition to the endless journey to reach it (which we assure is worthwhile), the richness of its regions will make you want to spend many more days discovering what the ocean continent hides.
If you are a traveling couple, you have a medium level of English, you are more of a city than a beach but you love nature, you are used to carry a backpack and to make long walks through the countryside or the metro in equal parts … Australia is your destination.
The first recommendation is to visit the two most important cities: Sydney and Melbourne.
The first one was founded in 1788 and is the oldest city in Australia. In it live 4 million inhabitants separated into two areas, the North and the South, connected by the Harbor Bridge and by an underwater tunnel.
Taking some photos in the famous Opera House or in one of its renowned beaches such as Manly or Blondie Beach is an essential requirement to have validated our stay in the country.
Melbourne is a little smaller, has three million inhabitants, and is characterized by being a more modern city that offers a rich cultural and gastronomic offer.
In it you should visit the Fitzroy Gardens, Federation Square, the National Victoria Museum or the Cathedral of Santa Paul.
After your first days in the city, we recommend you to enjoy some other days in Kangaroo Island , an island in the south of the country where you can visit farms where you feed pelicans and sea lions, and also feed the wanted kangaroos.
It is a natural and wild space where animals roam freely and the perfect place to meet and enjoy the unique Australian fauna. You will live with seals, sea lions, kangaroos, opossums, koalas, pelicans, dolphins, and platypus. You can go home with a collection of photos of animals that would be the envy of the very Felix Rodriguez de la Fuentes.
During your stay in the country you can hydrate yourself with the wonderful wines of the Yarra Valley . Originating in the area of the same name located in the south of the country, its endless vineyards and famous wineries welcome hundreds of visitors every year who come there to make tastings of their famous wines. If you have any free time and knowledge in the matter, it can be a good option to enjoy an extra activity and provide quality souvenirs to your family and friends when you return.
