AVisit to Australia

Duringthis year’s break, I took a trip to Australia. Australia is a realmof striking sceneries and pleasant weather, almost all year round.One of the places I stopped at is the Great Barrier Reef in NorthQueensland. Behold! The depiction of the area, its scenery akin todécor manifested in artificial scenes fascinated and created aself-fulfillment only imagined in virtual reality. One cannot helpbut remain transfixed and glued to the beautiful scenery of thenatural feature. The Great Barrier Reef makes one of the sevenwonders of the natural world full of beautiful coral reefs, coralcays, and inshore mangrove islands. I took several pictures of thefascinating features and posted on my Facebook wall and what followedare numerous venerated likes and comments.

Movingfrom the barrier, I proceeded to the Billabong Sanctuary inTownsville area. The sanctuary is a beautiful home to most of theAustralian mammal and reptile species such as kangaroos, wallabies,and crocodiles. It was my first time to set eyes on a kangaroo andbelieve me whenever I focus on my discernments I can gaudily recallthe beauty and elegance of that animal. My third destination wasSydney Opera House. In one expression, the unsurpassed account of thehouse is breathtaking. The house is shaped like billowing sails,surrounded by water on three sides and bordered on its Southern sideby the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens. From a distance, the locationis stunning and mesmerizing.

Tofinish my tour, I headed towards the Sydney Harbor Bridge. I willconfess that the bridge is the largest piece of steel constructionthat I have ever imagined. The man-made feature is approximately 134meters above the harbor and links Sydney’s north shore to thecentral business district. The bridge is the largest in the world,equipped with a pedestrian path, two railway lines and eight roadtraffic lanes, which can be switched in any direction to ease trafficcongestion. My vacation had ended, but I still longed to see more ofthe other Australia’s tourist attraction sites. By the end of thetour, one thing I knew for sure is that Australia will forever remainmy best holiday destination.
