Australia is blessed with beautiful beaches, abundant coral reefs, tall mountains, tropical rainforests, and the oldest soils.
Nature lovers will surely love all of the variety of landscapes, animals and fish that Australia has to offer. Here’s a list of the must-visit places in Australia if you’re a nature lover.
1. Dandenong Ranges
Only less than an hour’s drive from Melbourne, the Dandenong Ranges will transport you to one of the continent’s lushest green forest and land of the Eucalyptus regnans; the tallest flowering plants in the world. These beauties can grow up to more than 100m in height, and it’s most likely that you’ll only be able to see its lower trunks, as their canopies will be mostly out of sight.
The Eucalyptus regnans are also named as “mountain ash” because of its soft grey splotches and silvery sage. These tall temple pillars of the Dandenong Ranges are one of the most sought-after views in the area.
Aside from the Eucalyptus regnans, you can also visit the Emerald Lake, Olinda Falls, Alfred Nicholas Memorial Gardens, Cardinia Reservoir, Sherbrooke Falls, Grants Picnic Ground and Sherbrooke Forest.
With all of the things to do and see in the Dandenong Ranges, don’t miss visiting this place when you decide to visit Australia!

However, most tourists come to the area to also try to cruise the Kimberley and witness the majestic King George Falls, discover, river systems, gorges, wildlife and ancient rock arts, which you can only see in the remote wilderness of Northern Kimberley.
