My trip in Europe was spectacular, I really enjoyed it. I am now off to Australia, I am hopping I will get to see many kangaroos... so the first I place I had went to is Kakadu National park. Kakadu National park it’s Australia’s largest national park, sheltering a variety of habitats and wildlife, including saltwater crocodiles. And it’s well known that the park is World Heritage listed. But experiencing the extraordinary natural and human histories kept at Kakadu defies anything you’ve read. Even old-hand nature buffs will find for the first time seed pods, insects and animals unique to the area. The 2000 million-year-old rocks tell 20, 000 year-old stories of the existence of long extinct giant kangaroos and thylacines. I met up with my cousins in Australia and they were telling me how Sydney enjoys a relaxed outdoor and beach lifestyle, combined with arts and culture, fine food and wine, nature and cosmopolitan shopping and nightlife. Life in Sydney centres on the harbour. Catch a ferry at Circular Quay for views of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge from the water. In the city centre, historic arcades such as the Queen Victoria Building and The Strand are packed with designer fashion stores. In Newtown, find vintage fashion and quirky boutiques; while Mosman and Double Bay have more upmarket boutiques and cafes. Unwind in tranquil spaces such as Centennial Parklands, Hyde Park or the Royal Botanic Gardens. Don’t miss the world-famous beaches of Bondi and Manly. The city’s coastal walks are a perfect way to take in the golden beaches, dramatic headlands, sandstone cliffs and national parks. Sydney is bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Blue Mountains to the west, the Hawkesbury River to the north and the Royal National Park in the south.
