Australian Exortic Places

Snowy Mountains Of Mt Kosciuszko :In the Snowy Mountains there is the Mount Kosciuszko which could be explored either by foot or by skiing if you are going in winter. There are guided tours for different age groups and depending on how fit you are, you could opt for any of these hikes. This highest mountain in Australia has Alpine flowers which could be blooming if you go at the right time of the year. Ningaloo Reef, another reef in the West Coast off Australia is a white sandy lagoon. You can actually walk to this coral reef. Swim along with the many species of fish and other water creatures. You could also see the reef in a half submerged cruise. Also, make time to visit the Ningaloo Marine Park. Glen Helen with its Ormiston Gorge and Pound National Park in Australia’s Outback Northern Territory is along the legendary Finke river. The walks in the park could anywhere from a thirty minute walk right up to a three day walk. You'll find that the accommodation is more than decent and the presence of other attractions makes this place that is close to Alice Springs very tourist friendly.
Melbourne City:No holiday can be truly complete without a fair amount of shopping thrown in. In Melbourne, go to the Chapel Street or Greville Street for some chic clothes and leather goods. (Try Melbourne City Shops for a list of shops around Melbourne) The fancy bistros and the designer boutiques make for a compelling reason to check out this city. Chapel Street alone has more than a thousand shops along a two kilometer stretch. Between July and August, the city also plays host to Melbourne Film Festival and screens some of the finest movies, both local and foreign. There are shops scattered all over the city from where you could get souvenirs. St James Old Cathedral takes you back to the Victorian times with its quaint architecture.
