Hanson Bay Road, Kingscote SA 5223, Australia
The flagship property of Australian luxury hotel brand Baillie Lodges teeters on grass-covered limestone cliffs, tucked just far enough into the bluffs to feel protected from the roiling Southern Ocean below. Surrounded on three sides by national...

Bradleys Head Rd, Mosman NSW 2088, Australia
Travelers should visit Taronga Zoo as much for its harbor views as for the 4,000 resident animals (who see them all day long). Ferry 15 minutes from Circular Quay and take an optional Sky Safari cable car, included in the ticket...

Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney NSW, Australia
It's the quintessential thing to do in Sydney, and it's alot of fun! You won't get a better bird's-eye-view of Sydney's amazing landmarks— including the Opera House and Luna Park— than from the top of the iconic Harbour Bridge. #afarexperiences...

Great Ocean Road, Port Campbell VIC 3269, Australia
Along the Great Ocean Road, is a puzzle-like landscape that have lost pieces through the millennia. Dubbed as "The 12 Apostles" for marketing flair, there really aren't 12 little islands, but there was at one time, or will be, as weather and time...
