Meet Australia - Top five cities to visit

In order to truly get to know a place it does not suffice to only see the sights and visit the locations it consists of. Getting to truly know a place means learning about the locations you visit, mingling with the local population and doing things that are typical for that particular region. Here, Australia is no exception. In order to truly get to know Australia you need to hear Australia, see Australia, taste Australia and talk to Australia.

Furthermore, since it is a huge place, differing greatly in landscape, population and culture from place to place, it is not enough to visit only one place to complete the picture that you have about it. Here are top 5 cities in Australia which can all give you essential pieces of the great puzzle that this great culture/continent truly is.



It is only right to start off this list is with the largest and probably the most renowned city in whole of Australia. Regardless of your age there are many fun things to do in Sydney. For the younger population, Sydney is a place of wild and diverse nightlife that will truly enable you to get in touch with the general mood of the place and have a great time.

It is also a place full of historical landmarks and museums and is as such perfect even for those with different preferences. Of course, for those who had something quieter in mind for their Sydney visit, it is always a great idea to take an accommodation in Randwick thus spending some of the quieter hours of your visit in the peaceful and beautiful serenity of a typical Sydney suburb.



As a second largest Australian city, Melbourne has to offer great many things to its visitors. This, Sydney’s chief competitor, is often regarded as the capital of Australian culture and sport and it is opinion of many that these titles are completely justified. This city divided by the Yarra River and sheltered from the ocean by the dazzling Port Phillip Bay, for four years now holds the place as the most livable city in the world, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s.

This however does not mean that you would have to move there to truly get to know this place. Only a short stay would suffice to persuade you that this place is truly a unique and unforgettable wonder of Australian nation, one that you would most definitely want to return to soon.

Gold Coast City


While speaking about capitals, it is simply wrong not to include Gold Coast City. By many of the younger tourists, Gold Coast City has been declared to be a surfing capital of Australia. Apart from this, one of the most popular sports in Australia is also the scuba diving, for which you also have just the perfect conditions in this great city. If this is something that you have always dreamed of but never done before this is a perfect location for you to start at. You can always rent equipment and look for a diving trainer locally, making this unique experience altogether more authentic.



Adelaide is one of the most beautiful and at the same time most practical cities in entire Australia. This practicality is further explained by the cities nickname “the 20 minutes city”, meaning that in Adelaide you can reach virtually any point in no more than 20 minutes. This also applies to the cities surroundings since you can easily reach dazzlingly beautiful yet desolate beach resorts by taking only a short ride from the city. On top of all of this, Adelaide also goes as the city to go to if you are interested in tasting some of best Australian wines.



In the end it simply wouldn’t be fair not to mention one of the most desolated major cities in Australia and also the city with one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. Bordered on its west side by the incredible Indian Ocean, this city is definitely a location everyone should visit at least once. When it comes to getting to know west Australia, its people and its culture, what Perth has to offer is definitely second to none.

Visiting any of the aforementioned Australian cities is bound to become an experience that you will carry in your heart for the rest of your life. Still, it would definitely be a shame not to visit them all since every one of them has something unique to offer, something you are unlikely to find anywhere else.
