Home to mountains, deserts, rainforest and islands, Australia is chock-full of stunning scenery. Take in breathtaking views out over snowy slopes, or forested ones, from the Great Dividing Range. Get great ocean views from seaside cliffs in Tasmania or trek through thick rainforest on the northern peninsula. There’s plenty to see wherever you go.
