Nicknamed as the ‘Biggest Little Town’ in the country, Mullumbimby was originally a timber town. With Mount Chincogan overlooking this tiny town, the aura of this once active volcano is brilliant. Nature reserves are dominant here, and the best way to explore this area is by biking. Camping facilities are in abundance, so set out on this incredible exotic journey!
Esperance, Western Australia

The whitest beaches of the country, the crystal clear turquoise waters, the sunbathing kangaroos and some of the most authentic old pubs, this is the true essence of Australia. A little far off from the major tourists spot, it is almost hidden from the public eye. Come here and spend some time in the most beautiful part of the country.

Another one for the nature lovers, this one isn’t for the lush forests and rich wilderness. Birdsville is where you will find summer at its warmest, sandstorms playing games and the mesmerising dunes stretching till the horizon. One of the places favourite amongst birds, but not so dense with people, you will find exciting solitude here.
