Amazing places of stunning snow-capped mountains, white sprawling sandy beaches, impressive million-year-old rock formations, mountain ranges, islands of paradise and tropical rainforests, travelers come from far and wide, Australia is the most beautiful place in the world.
Here are Amazing places that actually exist in Australia. They look like they belong in a fairytale, but these places actually exist in real life.
1. Crystal Shower Falls, Dorrigo National Park, NSW
The walk to Crystal Shower Falls might be one of the shortest waterfall walks, but it is also one of the most intriguing because you can go behind the waterfall itself. Lush rainforest towers above you on the walk to the falls and you might hear the call of rainforest birds like fruit doves. Once you reach the falls, a suspension bridge leads to a short side track that will take you behind the waterfall into a rocky cavern. To get to Amazing places like this you’ll need to take the first part of the Satinbird stroll.
2. Umpherston Sinkhole, SA
The beauty of the Umpherston Sinkhole, also known as the sunken gardens, has to be seen to be believed. Appreciate its size and depth from the viewing platforms at the top of the sinkhole, then, walk down into the sinkhole, along with the terraces and behind the hanging vines. The resident colony of possums at Amazing places like this make an appearance at dusk and enjoy being fed fresh fruit. A large undercover shelter with group seating and free barbecue is provided. Kiosk on site for coffee, snacks, ice creams and souvenirs. Free Entry. Jubilee Highway East Mount Gambier.
3. Bitter Springs, Elsey National Park, NT
This 13,800-hectare park was made famous in Jeannie Gunn’s popular novel ‘We of the Never Never’. There is Aboriginal and World War II history, fishing, and boating. You could easily stay a few days and find it hard to leave the natural beauty of Bitter Springs, which is at the northern end of the park.
A 500m waterway is fed by an underground spring that gently flows down a watercourse lined with cabbage palms. Mataranka Thermal Pool is another favorite and known for its warm springs, which are around 30°C and pump out 30.5 megalitres of water each day.
4. Lake Bumbunga, SA
Lake Bumbunga is made up of three salt pans which have been harvested for over 30 years for use in swimming pools, water softener and of course fish and chips! Its name is reportedly derived from the Pampanga people (local indigenous) term for ‘rainwater lake’. It’s for your feet only…..and you’ll probably end up on the list of people who have tried it and ended up bogged.
