In my opinion, Sydney is the most beautiful city in Australia. However, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra are also charming cities. Sydney is a vibrant city with a very colorful population. The following is a description of this special city, its beaches and its main attractions, accompanied by pictures, and also a list of recommended hotels located in the city centre.
The Uluru (Ayers Rock) is in the middle of Australia far from the populated areas. It can be reached by car or by plane.
Here is an article about a Round trip visit to Uluru and Olgas from Alice Springs including a visit in Kings Canyon and Alice Springs.
The view of the Uluru in the flat desert is very impressive, especially at sunset when the Uluru changes its colors into reddish as the sun goes down, and after sunset it turns into-red black.
The Olgas mountains near the Uluru are not less beatiful
so a trip to this area is unforgettable.
Melbourne is a nice large city with many interesting
sites in both the city and its surroundings.
You will find a list of recommended hotels in a central location in Melbourne later in the article.

A visit to
Melbourne is incomplete without a trip to the nearby Philip
The trip from Melbourne takes about one hour and 45 minutes (140 km) and a whole day must be devoted to it.
There are many unique possibilities on the Island to observe the special animals in this habitat. The best is to start with a cruise to observe the huge seals colony.
The Kuranda village is located in mountains
covered with tropical rain forests, at a distance of
about 35 minutes away from the city of Cairns.
It is possible to reach the village from Cairns by three routes, all pretty and unique. The first, travel on curved roads inside the rain forests. The second, by an old historical train that goes thru the forests and near the spectacular Barron Falls arriving at Kuranda's picturesque train station located inside a forest. The third route is by the long Skyrail (7.5 km) above and between the treetops of the rain forest.
