Man-made wonders are fascinating and can be beautiful, but when these wonders occur naturally it’s an incredible experience that can’t be missed. These natural attractions in Australia will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, making them a once in a lifetime opportunity. You’ll want to document these occurrences on your social media!
Bioluminescent Plankton, Jervis Bay, New South Wales
Jervis Bay is known for the pristine white sandy beaches and ocean views, but the magic happens at night when the shores glow. The glow occurs from a natural chemical reaction with plankton which makes it luminescent with a blue color.
Australia’s Pink Lakes, South Australia and Western Australia
Who would have thought a lake could be pink? Each lake is a slightly different shade of pink—Lake Hiller is bubblegum pink which perfectly contrasts the blue water of the Indian Ocean, Hutt Lagoon changes colors from pink to red and lilac purple, and Lake MacDonnell has a road that separates the pink waters from the blue-green waters of Cactus Beach.
Coral Spawning, The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland
Coral Spawning is the reef reproducing and it happens annually, lasting just a few nights. During this time, travellers can take a night time coral spawning dive or join an overnight vessel to see the natural phenomenon happen.
The World’s Largest Dinosaur Footprints, Broome, Western Australia
The world’s largest dinosaur footprint can be found on the north coast of Broome in Western Australia. The fossilised dinosaur print is 1.7 meters long and 130 million years old. At Gantheaume Point, tourists can see footprints of dinosaurs on the flat rocks.
Aurora Australis, Tasmania
The Southern Lights or Aurora Australis shine bright in the sky with beautiful colors of green, blue, purple, and red. They can be seen all year long, but they’re most common during the winter, May to August, and in September.
