Surfers Paradise, on the Gold Coast of
Australia is the sixth-largest country in the
world and is divided into 6 states and several territories. The 6 states are New
South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Western
Australia. The two major territories are the Northern Territory (NT) and the
Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
The largest part of Australia is desert or
semi-arid, but the south-east and south-west corners have temperate climate and
moderately fertile soil. The northern part has tropical climate, which is part
tropical rainforest, part grassland and part desert.

just cannot miss seeing The Great Barrier Reef. It is the world’s
largest coral reef and extends for over 1,200 km! It lies a short
distance from the north-east coast.
Another spectacular place to visit is Uluru.
It is the second largest monolith in the world and is located in central
Australia. You can also visit the Great Artesian Basin, which is the
world’s largest and deepest fresh water basin. Along with its beauty, it
also serves as an important source of water in the parched outback.
You sure can’t miss going to Sydney if
you visit Australia. Sydney is located in a coastal basin situated between
the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Blue Mountains to the west. You can
enjoy all the activities associated with beaches because there are more
than 70 beaches in Sydney! If you have limited time, then you can only go
to the famous Bondi Beach of Australia.
Sydney has more amazing landmarks for you
