Uluru (Ayers Rock)
At the heart of Australia, this spectacular rock formation represents Outback Australia to the world. It’s spiritually important – in fact, sacred – to the aboriginal peoples of the country
Sydney Opera House
This landmark is a man-made one, appearing in just about every wide-angle shot of Sydney that exists. It’s an iconic structure with its stacked white “wings” and plays host to some great events so you can appreciate not only the exterior of this landmark but also what happens inside.
The Twelve Apostles
Another natural icon, the 12 Apostles off the southern coast of Victoria are not quite as famous as Uluru but do make the rounds in travel brochures and Instagram snaps. The beautiful rock stacks rise dramatically from the waves on a particularly rugged stretch of coast several hours west of Melbourne.
The Gold Coast
This one’s difficult to classify as a landmark, because it’s a combination of many buildings and a long, sandy beach. However, taken all together these make for an iconic view and a celebrated city, a landmark destination if you will, for visitors to Australia.
The Great Barrier Reef
You can’t take all of this massive reef in at once, but it’s a Queensland must-see. Take a boat from one of the many coastal cities and towns in the northern part of the state – such as Cairns or Airlie Beach – and get in the water to see beautiful coral formations and incredible sealife.
