The Best Kept Secrets Down Under!

There are so many amazing travel destinations in the world that trying to pick just one can be something of a challenge. This is especially true if you're the kind of discerning traveller who wants to avoid ending up in all of the same obvious places over and over again.

There's no doubt that Australia is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world but what a lot of people forget is that it's not all about the really famous tourist spots, there are plenty of hidden gems that you owe it to yourself to check out. With that in mind, here are just a few of the best-kept secrets in the land down under.

Lake Hillier
Right in the centre of Middle Island in the Recherche Archipelago, Lake Hillier honestly feels like something out of a dream. You might be wondering what on earth makes Lake Hillier that much more special than any other large body of water in any other country in the world? Well, the answer to that is pretty simple: it's bright pink. Produced by certain microorganisms reacting with the water's salt content to create a natural red dye, it's the kind of thing that really does need to be seen to be believed. And despite its radioactive colour, it's totally safe to swim in!

The 12 Apostles
There's no doubt that Australia is one of the best destinations on earth to experience some truly breathtaking natural beauty. The pinnacle of which could well be the 12 apostles. Created by the ocean wearing away at the limestone cliffs leaving tall rocks standing out to sea. With amazing places like Loch Ard Gorge nearby offering you the chance to enjoy some truly beautiful crystal waters, this entire stretch of Australia's coastline is a little corner of paradise. Check out to see some of the amazing tours that you can experience to really get the most out of this part of Australia. There's nothing worse than discovering somewhere amazing and missing out on some of the best parts of it.

Newnes Glow Worm Tunnel
If you want to experience something truly magical, then you really do owe it to yourself to visit the Newnes Glow Worm Tunnel. It's a disused railway tunnel between Lithgow and Newnes, New South Wales. That by itself isn't all that notable but, as the name suggests, the thing that makes it really notable is that its home to a huge number of glow worms, giving the entire tunnel an amazing iridescent glow that really does feel like something out of a storybook.

Now, this isn't to say that there's anything wrong with some of the more popular destinations in Australia, or anywhere else for that matter. The point is simply that, in a country as big as Australia, the idea that you could ever run out of new and exciting places to visit is just ridiculous. You could go back year after year and never run out of new things to experience and new places to see.
