trip australian highlights

Australia perennially makes an appearance on this list, because it fits the bill of a far-flung dream trip. Because of its remote location, it truly is a once-in-a-lifetime vacation for most people. And the exotic perception of life on the other side of the world only adds to that.

There's also a great variety of things to do once travelers make the long journey, from petting koalas and kangaroos to snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef to visiting the Outback, there's no shortage of sights that amaze.
