Cultural Travel to Australia’s Eastern Seaboard

There are few places in the world still beaming with life, and wildness. Cultural travel to Australia’s eastern seaboard is on of those places. There, the wildness and the beauty are astounding. Queensland coast is so rich in natural wonders. One example of a gem on the Queensland coast is the Mareeba wetlands. This place consists of 5000 acres of wildlife sanctuary. In an article in the Telegraph, Mark Chipperfield says:

And try a trip to the Mareeba Wetlands, a 5,000-acre wildlife sanctuary, home to 204 species of birds and mammals such as echidnas, wallabies, kangaroos and possums. I believe this magical place should be on every itinerary.

After your tour, you can enjoy some “native tucker” (croc, roo or emu) at the city’s Red Ochre Grill.

You’ll soon realise why so many people come to this part of Australia for a holiday and never leave. “I’ve lived here for 20 years and never owned a jumper or an overcoat,” one expat told me. “We call it God’s own country.”

Cultural travel to Australia’s eastern seaboard can include all sorts of wonders.  There are magical places such as Byron Bay.

You might want to linger at one of the major tourist honeypots along the coast, such as Byron Bay, Port Macquarie or Coffs Harbour — easy-going resort towns that offer great beaches, whale- watching tours, fishing charters and a good choice of restaurants; this part of Australia produces fine organic meat, seafood and some of the country’s best fruit, nuts and vegetables.

For a real flavour of country New South Wales, I suggest leaving the Pacific Highway and driving across the Great Dividing Range to marvellous old-school towns such as Gloucester, Mudgee and Orange.
