4. Visit the world’s reputed to be the last major wild river in the world the Franklin River.
5. Want some adrenaline rush try taming the Tasmania’s wild rapids that could rival Utah's Moab, but be sure that you do not come closer to a Tasmanian devil, also a marsupial like the kangaroo yet hunts and scavenge for food and creates horrible sound, hehehe, the reason why this animal gets its name. Tasmania is also home of the Cascade Brewery, Australia’s oldest brewery located at Hobart, Tasmania. Barrosca is a worthy of your visit too, since it is popular for its wines and home to more than 80 breweries.
6. Take a peek at one of the famous landmark in the world, the romantic Sydney Opera House and one of Australia's national emblem.

Hear aboriginal creation stories, attempt throwing the “Boomerang,” or play the didgeridoo, that create a strange yet fascinating sound. The Magic Space Museum houses the Tjapukai murals that gives you comprehensive insights about the stories of Dreamtime and cultural relics that dates back to the stone age, pretty old eh.
8. Looking for mystery and some folklore Cluro / Ayers Rock is the place to visit. Sounds of Silence dinner provides you great sights while you enjoy a dinner with a hearty buffet with champagne in a truly romantic evening while gazing at the starry starry night ala Vincent hehehe.
9. The Alice Springs is also a nice pick to visit for it is the place where there are world-class Aboriginal Art Galleries, that will enable you to travel back and time and be fascinated with the ethnicity of the Aborigines.
10. The Great Barrier Reef is a sanctuary of marine life of all shapes, sizes and colors is the only "living thing" visible from space. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most important part of the Coral Triangle that includes New Guinea, Philippines and Indonesia, and refuge to more than 3,000 types of sharks, rays, turtles and dolphins.
