Nothing beats the Aussie outdoors when it comes to firing up your five senses. You’ll surely experience sensory overload (in the best way possible) when scoping out Australia’s iconic landmarks and hidden gems. Read on to find out what top Australian destinations you can visit to ignite your senses on your next adventure.



Great Barrier Reef, Queensland

The colours in the Great Barrier Reef are almost unbelievable, from the electric blues of the open ocean to the rainbow of coral formations. Snorkelling and diving enthusiasts are in for a treat thanks to marine life, including everything from fish and turtles to dolphins and sharks. What’s more, several islands in the area give you the opportunity to camp in the Great Barrier Reef, so be sure to load up on camping trip essentials to make the most of the experience.

Uluru, Northern Territory

Uluru, in the heart of Australia, is a sight to behold. This colossal sandstone rock blends in with the fiery reds and oranges at sunrise. Uluru becomes a majestic silhouette as the sun sets, creating shadows and colours across the desert landscape. It's a truly amazing sight that everyone should experience at least once in their lives.


Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory

Kakadu National Park is a real noise factory, but in a good way. When the sun peeks over the wetlands, the birds begin to call. You've got magpie geese squawking, kookaburras doing their belly laughs and the fluttering beats of wings. There are plenty of places to stay at Kakadu, so if you’re keen on caravaning, install your towbar, hitch your rig and start driving.

Daintree Rainforest, Queensland

The Daintree Rainforest, found in the northeast corner of Australia, is a vibrant place filled with an array of sounds. Stepping into this environment, you're immediately surrounded by a chorus of life. Insects buzz, birds sing and leave rustle as creatures move through the dense foliage. You’ll probably hear rain dripping off leaves into small puddles and creeks as you explore deeper into the rainforest.


Adelaide Central Market, South Australia

Adelaide Central Market is a taste sensation that'll leave you craving more. The stalls are a foodie's dream – fresh seafood, exotic spices, succulent meats and a rainbow of fruits and veggies. You'll dive into flavours from around the globe as well as homegrown classics.

Margaret River, Western Australia

Margaret River in WA is a paradise for food and wine lovers alike. Picture yourself sipping on Australia’s best wines, and let's not forget the gourmet produce – cheese that melts in your mouth and fresh seafood that's as good as it gets. It's a taste journey through the best of the West, where every sip and bite is a celebration of the good things in life.


Red Centre (Alice Springs), Northern Territory

In the Red Centre, you're not just seeing the outback but feeling it under your fingertips. Run your hands over the ancient rocks, rough and weathered by time, and feel the red sand falling through your fingertips. Hitch up your caravan or a quality trailer to take on the Red Centre Way, a ripper 1000-kilometre road trip that starts and finishes in Alice Springs.

K'gari (formerly Fraser Island), Queensland

On Queensland’s K’gari, the world's largest sand island, every step lets you sink your toes into the refined grains of sand as you stroll along the beach, then hit the creeks and lakes to cool. Read up on the ins and outs of camping on K’gari (Fraser Island), and pack your 4WD with quality camping gear so you can enjoy this sensory paradise in comfort and style.


Tasmania's Lavender Fields

Tassie’s lavender fields offer a full-on sensory party. The air is thick with the most unreal scent, like a mix of honey and floral sweetness that hits you the moment you step foot in those fields. And it’s not just your nostrils having a field day. You’ll lay your eyes on row upon row of lavender, stretching as far as the eye can see, with vibrant purple blooms swaying in the breeze.

Great Ocean Road, Victoria

The Great Ocean Road in Victoria is one of those bucket list road trips in Australia that hits you right in the nostrils. You’ll cruise along the coastline, the wind tousling your hair and carrying the fresh salty scent of the sea with it. The coastal vegetation adds to the aromatic experience, filling the surroundings with the natural fragrance of eucalyptus, wildflowers and the earthy notes of the rugged landscape.

Australia offers a rich sensory experience, especially if you are in the know about the best places to go. Pick from this list of sensory paradises, and you’ll be in for a cracking adventure.
