Australian travel blogs are the ultimate source of FOMO [fear of missing out!]. Sometimes we get so caught up in the daily nine-to-five grind that we forget the world is our oyster. A diverse, natural and ever changing oyster. Hold the dipping sauce.
But like any good cuisine, when you eat the same thing everyday it loses its appeal. These five Australian travel blogs remind us why Australia is one of its brightest pearls. From the obvious; the beautiful coastlines, dense rainforests, canyons, mountain ranges, artsy cities, stretching deserts to the small details; the roadside hotel room, the pie from a small town bakery. Whichever area of our vast country you’re in its easy to see why we’re known as ‘The Lucky Country’ by the rest of the world.
Satisfy every inch of your wanderlust and delve into these Australian travel blogs to see just what this land has on offer.
