For the people that journey to this vast country, the enticing lure of Australia is the sheer number of its totally unique attractions; including "Uluru," or Ayers Rock, the Great Barrier Reef, Nullarbor Plain, Shark Bay and The Kimberley region, to name but a few.
In addition, the Blue Mountains, Fraser Island, Gold Coast beaches, Great Ocean Road, Kangaroo Island, Sydney Harbor and Tasmania are major draws.
From major cities to small towns; from east to west; north to south, and across the desert sands and outbacks of Australia, there is so much to see and so much to do that it literally boggles the mind.
