Many people don’t realize that the capital city of Australia isn’t Sydney or Melbourne, but Canberra. And that’s why Canberra is the first on our list.

Canberra may not be the largest or the most exciting city in Australia but it is a city brimming with history and culture. The capital of Australia is a modern city that offers numerous museums and galleries. If you’re a fan of art, the National Gallery of Canberra is the place you shouldn’t skip.

But that’s not all. For all of you who enjoy fine dining, you should check out Canberra’s sophisticated restaurant scene. The Braddon suburb is where you’ll find all the great coffee shops, high-end restaurants, and fine boutique shopping.

Melbourne

Not only is Melbourne the second largest city but it’s also considered Australia’s cultural capital. It’s the city that never sleeps, a cool cosmopolitan city that reminds of all the great European cities.

If you decide to visit Melbourne, there’s no way you’ll ever be bored. From colorful neighborhoods full of street art, and numerous markets full of delicious food to one of the oldest art galleries in Australia – Melbourne offers so much to see and experience.

St Kilda is a perfect place to spend the afternoon. Or you can hop to Philip Island to see some cute penguins.

Just some ten minutes from CBD, you can book a relaxing massage at Rozelle. Rozelle is one of the inner suburbs of Sydney where you can visit a collector’s market and a couple of amazing parks.

Since we mentioned parks, you shouldn’t leave Sydney without paying a visit to the Royal Botanic Garden. Swimming or surfing on Bondi Beach, the most famous Australian beach, is also something you should experience firsthand.

Brisbane

Brisbane is the capital of Sunshine State (Queensland), the one place in Australia that has the best climate throughout the year. And this just makes Brisbane one of the best cities to visit all year round.

Since Brisbane is one of the oldest Australian cities, you can expect many museums and galleries. Brisbane is the perfect place for all adventure and outdoor lovers. You can choose outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking, biking, and sandboarding.

Mount Coot-tha is a perfect hiking spot, while for those of you who prefer kayaking, Moreton Bay and Kangaroo Point are what you should explore.

Brisbane is also ideal for cycling, so you can hire a bike and explore the city on two wheels. And if you want to try something new, hop over to Moreton Island and spend time rolling down giant dunes.

Adelaide

If you’re looking for a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere, Adelaide is the place to go. A casual city with a great pub scene and outstanding live music venues.

This city is also an amazing place to visit if you’re a wine lover. The whole Adelaide region is famous for its many vineyards. So, don’t forget to book a tour and enjoy some fine wine.

If you’re hoping to see some Australian wildlife, then Cleland Wildlife Park and Kangaroo Island are the places you shouldn’t skip. Wallabies and koalas are just some of the animals you’ll be able to spot.

And if you want to complete the whole experience, stop by the Fleurieu Peninsula to watch whales. A truly unique and one of the kind experience.
