International borders look set to remain closed for several more months, so globe-trotting may be off the cards for now. But worry not intrepid traveller, there's still plenty to satisfy your wanderlust right here in Australia, and with government-subsidised flights on the way, there's really never been a better time to explore the land Down Under.
Naming the best places to visit on this vast, dynamic continent of ours is kind of like picking your favourite children from a large group of brilliant but very different kids. There are the beach towns Australia is known for, but then there are the wild green islands, the rugged national parks full of secret swimming holes, the big cities brimming with culture and great food, the stark yet beautiful deserts... we could go on forever.
We've cherry-picked a handful of the regions we think you should put at the top of your list for when interstate travel is once again permitted. Whether you're into sipping delicious shiraz, hiking around lush green wilderness or getting the most out of our unspoilt coastlines, there's a destination to suit any and every taste.
