Sydney Opera House

For a taste of some civilized life, the Sydney Opera House, located in Sydney, is one of the most famous and recognized opera houses on the planet. The opera house opened in 1973 and ever since, has played host to many concerts and other live events. With this modern marvel taking 15 years to complete, the Sydney Opera House is, truly, architectural wonder.

Kangaroo Island

And the final must-see place in Australia is Kangaroo Island. The island is located in the southern part of Australia, near the Fleurieu Peninsula. As Australia’s third largest island, Kangaroo Island is home to many of the island/country/continent’s dolphins, koalas, sea loins and, of course, kangaroos.

Kangaroo Island

The place has been preserved from overdevelopment and excessive tourism. This is why many of the natural floras and fauna of the island remain in existence.
In short, if you are planning a trip to Australia, then these former places mentioned are some of the places that you see while there. Therefore, have a happy and safe travel to “the land down under!”
