Here is the list of top five cities in Australia

Great Barrier Reef – Great Barrier Reef is the golden attraction of Australia. It is one of the top most visited places in the world and truly known for giving life-time experiences. It is considered to be the oldest living coral reef which was formed 10,000 years ago right after the era of Ice Age. Considering the fact that it's the highlight of this country, it is titled as the 'World Heritage Site' & 'Wonder of the World'. Great Barrier Reef is the longest reef that stretches over more than 2,000kms on the Queensland coastline. It almost covers the entire area for about 135,000 square miles. The coral reefs here are not the only thing which you're going to see. If you opt to do scuba dive or snorkelling, then you would see over more than 2000 species of flora & fauna and 500 species of coral polyps. There is also an option to book a scenic flight which would give you an aerial view of the Great Barrier. The views are just breath-taking which would leave you stunned. After your visit to Great Barrier, don't forget to visit towns of Cairns and Townsville which are nearby and easily accessible.

Fraser Island – Frazer Island is also considered to be a 'World Heritage Site' of Australia. The reason why is because this island forms a unique part of Australia's rich culture, traditions & natural resources. This place is an exceptional beauty blessed with abundant nature & stunning white beaches. It is an untouched, unspoilt and a spectacular destination with over 100 freshwater lakes. Native rainforests & gushing waterfalls forms a part of this scenario along the banks of turquoise water. This island has a long extensive coastline that stretches 123 kilometres in length and 25 kilometres in width. It is also considered to be the largest sand island in the world because of its area - 184 000 hectares. This place becomes the only island in the world that grows tall rainforests on sand dunes. This ecological significance can only be seen here. So if you're in south-east of Queensland, then make sure that you add this island on your list.
