Landscapes of Australia – the land of bizarre rocks, scorching red deserts and ancient tropical forests charm even skilled travelers.

Australia - a country of plains separated by mountain ranges. Its climate and landscapes are diverse. There are tropical deserts, tropical forests and areas with subtropical climate. Areas with Mediterranean climate - a paradise for lovers of beach holidays - are attractive to tourist. However, Australia is the driest country in the world. The center of Australia is a desert, only slightly inferior to the area of the famous Sahara and semi-deserts - the bushes, where Australian Aborigines - the people of the Stone Age, so interesting for tourists, live. It attracts fans of eco-tourism here. The main feature of central Australian deserts is sand of unusual red color, making landscapes "Martian". In the center of Australia, near the town of Alice-Springs, is located the famous Kings Canyon with springs, gushed out of cliffs and cascaded down as fantastic waterfalls. And also, equally famous rock - the Uluru (Ayers Rock). Tiny grains of quartz, covered these mountains as a crust, at sunset provide an unusual optical effect, staggering imagination of travelers. It creates a truly mystical sense - not in vain these places were sacred for Australian Aborigines. The main landscape attraction of Australia, the Great Barrier Reef, known for its luxurious resort islands, is located in the north. It is a UN World Heritage list, as well as the world's largest sand island - Fraser Island. Fans of diving, sailing, rafting and fishing have a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the landscapes of northern Australia and have a rest in a comfortable environment here.
