Nice that the city it's on free trams, especially in a time when people are lining up for your money - for example try parking in the city!
There are a few reasonable parking buildings that will not fleece you, then you can ride the tram around to where you wanna go for free.
Also there's the nostalgic side. These are old well restored trams, a bit rickity and noisy, not exactly my style, but I can see lots of people appreciate such things, so has to almost be a must if your coming to admire the Victorian era of the city.

Sydney Harbour

Secluded Beaches, quiet coves and soaring headlands predominate this harbor, which is considered one of the world's most beautiful.

Reviewed By Graham59Buderim - Buderim

Fantastic place to visit, has great harbour views, cafes, fast food, restaurants and more. Great busking from local musicians adds to the ambience. Regular ferry services to take you all over the harbour. Our hotel was within walking distance to the harbour as is many of the hotels in this area. Cruise ships frequent the international cruise terminal opposite the Opera House and by Sydney harbour bridge, great tourist destination. Recommend on your bucket list!!

Kings Park & Botanic Garden

The park cultivates over 13,000 species of Western Australian plants and contains one of the world's largest areas of natural bush land close to a city.

Reviewed By cliffordchambers - Europe

What an immaculately maintained park! You are greeted by a beautiful avenue of majestic trees, a fantastic view of the Central Business District and the large stretch of water to the east and south. There are many walkways and if you stray away from the well trodden paths and go west, you can stroll in a quieter atmosphere and walk many small paths without seeing anyone. There are also quantities of birds in the park, but beware, one of the tried to steal my Sandwich as I was eating it!
The park is a credit to the city of Perth and to the civic responsibility of its citizens.

There is a parking lot next to the building. During weekdays you have to pay. After a security check of your bag you can enter the building. At certain moments there are guided tours. Ask at the information desk when the next one will start. The guide will show out the high lights of the museum. Afterwards you can visit the Exhibitions in detail and on your pace. Everyday at 16:55 hr there is a last post ceremony dedicated to a soldier who lost his/her life for our freedom.

Three Capes Track

Reviewed By holidays2407 - Shelly Beach, Australia

We, a group of four friends, completed this walk in March 2018. Having walked in a lot of scenic places, I can safely say this is right up there. This track is excellently maintained and this makes walking easier. The huts are great, again kept in excellent order by the rangers.
The scenery was stunning and world class. Cape Pillar by itself makes the walk special. The highest sea cliffs in the southern hemisphere are mind blowing.
The last day is a bit of a slog and if weary like some of the walkers. Cape Huay (while lovely) can be missed if late or feeling stuffed.
The swim at the end helps celebrate a memorable 4 days.
Would put this on your bucket list. If time permits we would certainly do it again.

What a privilege to visit The Kangaroo Sanctuary and be guided by the charismatic Chris Barnes.

Reviewed By MEM1956 - Colchester, United Kingdom

We had a great time cuddling koala bears, feeding kangaroos, cassowary birds, turtles and handling snakes lizards wambats. We watced the keepers hand feed HUGE crocodiles from the safety of a caged van but it felt like we were in there with them.
We were also impressed by the care the keepers clearly had for their animals. For example the koala ran out of its cage to be petted. All the animals were clearly well cared for.
Well worth the trip to the Wilderness to get there.

About a 10-15 walk up to the location, well worth it! Just watch out for flies! Once there you really are taken aback by the sheer beauty. It feels like you're looking at a photoshopped picture! Only downside is was how busy it was but i guess that's to be expected! Would definitely recommend!

Lake McKenzie

Reviewed By Mon55 - Brisbane, Australia

We walked the 12.5km (one way)from Kingfisher Resort to here and while exhausting the sight of this lake at the end made it worthwhile.The path is well set out and easy to follow. Only walkway 2 is open at the moment. The water is very inviting and starts shallow and becomes quite deep. The sand is so soft - silica sand. It is a touch of paradise. Having a 4WD would be much better and leave more time for exploring. A must visit when on Fraser Island.

Ned's Beach

Reviewed By cforcolin - Melbourne, Australia

We swam here every day . The water temperature was excellent and you can snorkel amongst the coral and all the fish. You can hire umbrellas, wet suits boards flippers and snorkel gear at the beach on an honour system. They also have a dispensing machine for fish food. If you don’t want to sit on the sand, there’s a wonderful grassed area with some shade only metres from the beach. A must if you are on the Island.
