Come to Adelaide and visit the wineries. Very popular for wine tastings, band playing at McLaren Vale, Handorfe, Barossa Valley and Victor Harbour

I guess it depends on which area you plan on visiting. Sydney had some great spots to visit. We loved Western Australia because of the remoteness once you leave Perth. Was really nice traveling around WA.

I miss traveling. Who doesn't miss? I wish this pandemic will be over soon. But anyway, the good news is Australia is having more number of recoveries. So let's stay positive. Everything will be fine soon.

the previous threads are all great. I've copy a lot to my list lol. But just for COVID-19, remember to check if they still open. Also try to reduce unnecessary trip and stay at home. Wish you all safe.

My personal preference is Perth.. It is the most youthful place I have visited so far. Not only the beaches, but it offers loads of other attractions. It has fantastic museums, some great shopping spots. It is a complete package for those who enjoy nature as well as exciting city life.

Anyone suggest me ? If you visit Australia for tour which place you like most and you enjoy all moment.
Major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne are great places for travelling. Having said that, the outback has its own charms. Guess it all depends on personal preference. :)
