Most tourists in Australia come to admire the country's spectacular outdoors, but this vast, sparsely populated land of desert, swamp, and outstanding coastline also boasts some thriving metropolises. Adventurers will love getting lost in Australian Outback and watching famous rock formations change color as the sun rises at Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Thrill seekers can choose between a number of adrenaline and extreme tours, safaris, and speedboat tours at Airlie Beach. Surfing and snorkeling are also among popular things to do in Australia, while relaxed wine and food tours ideally reflect the country's laidback way of life. Travelers wishing to add a dash of culture to their Australia vacation can catch a performance at Sydney Opera House.
