Australia Tourist Attractions
Plan Your Best Ever Holiday
What type of Australia tourist attractions would you like to see and experience? The manmade or natural attractions. I like both as they both have there own unique appeal depending on what they are of course!
Obviously both types are very popular as thousands of people visit Uluru Ayers Rock, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House every year to be amazed at how unique and spectacular they are in there own special way.
There is a huge range of Australia tourist attractions so it easy to find plenty of things to do and attractions in Australia whether you are a local or from overseas.
You most likely have heard of or seen images of Uluru Ayers Rock, the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House, the Gold Coast in sunny Queensland and Cradle Mountain in Tassie.
Also there is the Great Ocean Road, Kakadu National Park, the Outback, Fraser Island, Barossa Valley, the Whitsundays and the Kimberley.
These are of course stunning and amazing to see but there are so many more Australia tourist attractions and things to do and see that you may not heard of that are 'Must See' attractions or destinations.
Under each section below you will find a link to the main page for each state or territory. All the tourist attractions on the main pages for each state or territory has a website link so you can you discover more about that attraction or destination.

Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House
"The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of our major Australia tourist attractions which took eight years to build and was completed in 1932 with the purpose of joining the City Centre to North Shore.
The bridge was built in 3 parts, the foundations at each end, then the arch was made in two parts and joined in the centre, then the deck was added for the vehicles to use. Painting the bridge is a 'never ending' task as it takes about 30,000 litres of paint to do one coat."
