Australia is a country that is blessed with scenic views at almost every turn.

In NSW, the warm-weather beach culture means there's glorious coastal scenery galore, as well as Sydney being home to the spectacular harbour backdrop, of course.

Over in South Australia, stunning rolling hills and vineyards meet world-class beaches on long stretches of coastline.

Victoria is home to one of the world's best coastal drives, the Great Ocean Road, which offers a stream of magical views like the Twelve Apostles, as well as rugged cliffs, spectacular beaches, ancient rainforests and pretty coastal towns.

Further up in the Northern Territory, you'll find a land that marries milky blue seas and islands rich in traditional art, with thunderous waterfalls fringed by palms, flower-lined deserts and ancient monoliths imbued with spiritual muscle. The famous Uluru can be found sitting majestically here, taking centre stage, while you'll also find some of the best sunsets on the coast in Darwin.

Western Australia is where you'll find more powdery white beaches than in any other state in the country. But, more than just beaches, there's also three UNESCO World Heritage sites. Inland, the billion-year-old Kimberley region is like nowhere else on the planet, with towering red rock formations, gushing waterfalls and bottomless gorges that capture every adventurer's heart.

Queensland, of course, boasts the incomparable Great Barrier Reef, the world's largest eco-system offering awe-inspiring views underneath the water with its colourful wildlife as well as on land with its world-class white beaches like Whitehaven.
