It's hard to find just one. For me as a Sutherland Shire citizen Kurnell is possibly one of them - so different to the crowded Cronulla. It has small but lovely beaches, Botany Bay National Park, great places to walk. Kurnell was actually the place where Capt Cook landed when he discovered Australia.

As for places outside Sydney - Wollongong is among the top ones. Mainly thanks to its beaches and some great views.

There are so many great places in Australia (and I only saw such a small part of it) that it is really hard to tell which is my favorite. Daintree Rainforest is just an amazing spot, it is a Garden Eden on Earth. The clear nightly sky full of stars and the milky way in the Outback was just breathtaking. But there is also the whitest sand in the world at Hyams Beach at Jervis Bay... well, I'm sure that when I keep on traveling I find many more places I might call my favorites...

There's so much beauty here that it is impossible to choose just one place. Some of my favorites, in no special order, are:

Byron Bay for the funky scene and gorgeous seashore, and the lighthouse walk...

Sydney Harbour side

Mt Warning in northern NSW - one can do a walk up the mountain to view the sunrise over the distant ocean

Whitsunday Islands

Noosa on the Sunshine Coast, and the surrounding seaside towns

The Countryside all over Australia, the vast expanses, endlessly long drives without encountering "civilisation"....

Thursday Island in the Torres Straight - I spent some time there as a teenager, and at first, I hated the place. We had no TV or shopping malls. After a few weeks, I began to notice that it has the most amazing sunsets, starry skies and bluest sparkling waters. .. In the afternoons we waded through the ocean reefs at low tide with colorful tropical fish swimming right past. Just magical. We had Sunday lunch at the same hotel that W Somerset Maugham stayed at and wrote some of his exotic travel tales from.The Islanders are sweet and hospitable. They don't have the concept of ownership, and shared everything selflessly. I haven't been back for many years, hope it is still as unspoilt as back then...

I could write a list 10 pages long, of my favorite Australian places.... it is a wonderful special country and we are lucky to be here :-)

Travelling around affordably

What lovely choices! The Whitsundays are gorgeous - I went on a sail boat all the way to the outer reef, as well as Fraser Island, Rainbow Beach, and The Great Barrier Reef. There are so many great tours to go on, and if you do a package deal you can get them so cheaply! I went with Tribal Travel, if you're in Brisbane there's a great shop on George Street - it's massive and red and you can't miss it!
