Must-See Hidden Gems of Australia

10 September 2020



Surrounded by spectacular coastlines and filled with inland wonders, it’s not surprising Australia is such a popular tourist resort. However, it isn’t just the well-known sights that make this country great. When you get off the beaten track, you find that there are undiscovered wonders to explore too. If you want to make the most of this spectacular country, take a look at these must-see hidden gems now:


Bay of Fires, Tasmania

Nestled in the north-eastern coast of Tasmania, the Bay of Fires is one of the world’s best-kept secrets. If beautiful white sandy beaches, clear blue waters, rich green vegetation and deep orange rocks are your sort of thing, you’ll love what the Bay of Fires has to offer.

To turn your trip into a real adventure, start off at Hobart and take the Great Eastern Drive road trip. With Sydney Ute van hire, you can throw your gear in the back and have everything you need on hand. As well as taking in mesmerising sights on the way, you’ll have the breath-taking Bay of Fires to look forward to as the final destination of your trip.

Baird Bay, South Australia

Situated on the Eyre Peninsula, Baird Bay is a remote seaside village that is perfect for exploring. If you want to camp, fish or go bushwalking, this is the perfect location for you. In addition to this, Baird Bay is the ideal place to spot wild sea lions and dolphins, so you can get to know these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.


Wave Rock, Western Australia

Located around 300km to the south-east of Perth, Wave Rock is a sight worth seeing. More than 110m long and 15m high, it’s perfectly shaped like a breaking wave (which makes it a great backdrop for selfies). If you’re good on a skateboard, this is a fantastic destination. You can’t ride the waves here but you’ll see talented skateboarders practising their kickflips and halfpipes on the natural formation.

Hawkesbury Region, New South Wales

When you’re looking for an adventure but you’re short on time, take a trip to the Hawkesbury Region. It only takes an hour to get here from downtown Sydney but you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to another world once you arrive. Spend your time hiking, canyoning, biking, wakeboarding, climbing and caving before you head back to the bright lights of the City.


Daintree Rainforest, Queensland

The country’s largest tropical rainforest, The Daintree is well worth a visit. Stretching right to the coast, you can combine a visit to the rainforest with a walk on the sand and a trip underwater to see the coral reef. With so much on offer, you’ll be eager to extend your time here and camp in the glorious surroundings.

Plan the Perfect Road Trip

If you want to see some of the country’s best-hidden gems, there’s no better way to do it than via a road trip. Explore at your own pace and uncover the secret sights that only true Australians know about.
