Last minute Holiday to Australia
See beloved Perth Zoo, visit the Aquarium of Western Australia, and spend some time in Scitech, a state-of-the-art interactive museum with a spectacular planetarium and a Discoverland for young children. Perth also receives an average of approximately 3, 200 hours of sunshine each year, and is the location of the world's largest inner city park, Kings Park, which opened in 1872.
The nation's third biggest city, Brisbane hosted the Commonwealth Games of 1982 and is acclaimed for its Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, which opened in 2006 and exhibits many interesting national and international paintings, sculptures and other artistic artefacts. Other major places of interest in Brisbane include the picturesque City Botanic Gardens, the popular Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, and the scenic South Bank Parklands.
The Great Barrier Reef
Visible from space, the Great Barrier Reef attracts more than two million visitors annually and is comparable to the size of Italy. The site contains more than 1, 500 species of fish, well over a dozen sea snake species, dozens of whale, porpoise and dolphin species, and is (quite rightfully) on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.
