There is one country I am woefully overdue in visiting, and actually was supposed to visit almost 5 years ago but didn't. This same country has many wonderful heritage sites and natural resources, and comes with its own attitude and lifestyle in many parts of the country. Where is this? Look no further than Australia...but for this Place of the Day, I'm highlighting:
Why visit Fraser Island where there are places like the Great Barrier Reef and the Sydney Opera House to look at? Well, this particular place is the world's largest sand island, with nearly 75 miles of broad coastal beach to explore. Not enough for you? Hiking is also available and will take you from the shores of beach-goers to lakes and the rain forest.
All of the major airline alliances can get you to Australia, so if you have points available you're in good shape. Just make sure you're picking the right time frame - winter and summer are opposite!
