We asked 5 Aussie travellers for their favourite Australian escape

I’m not sure if you can feel it but I think travelling (within our own countries) is soon to be on the cards! If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably been spending the whole time in iso planning your next trip or adventure! Often we forget that there is an entire country of our own to see, to experience, to grow richer in knowledge because we get caught up in the grass being greener on the other side of the world, literally. Of course, there’s no denying how powerful it is to experience another culture, another language and another way of life. But sometimes hopping on a plane to reach the other side of your own country can feel like you’ve gone half way across the world too.
So we made a list (with a little help from a few friends) of all the places we plan to visit when we’re free to travel again.

Western Australia Via @rileystravels

“We first hit Esperance late at night in May after crossing the Nullabor. The best part about arriving late to a new destination is the sight you get to wake up to. Esperance is especially out of this world. Cape Le Grande has some of the most insane beaches we’ve ever come across.”

“Exmouth holds Cape Range National Park where we spent our days dipping our toes in the clearest, silkiest warm water, only meters away from the reef. Western Australia is a really special place for us, a place we’ll continue to visit over and over again."

Must sees:

1. Cable Beach

2. Broome

3. Elephant Rocks Denmark

4. Esperance Cape Le Grande

5. Exmouth Cape Range

6. Lake Argle

Tasmania Via @wildroadwanderers

“Tasmania has been by far one of our favourite places to explore in Australia. We remember first rolling off the ferry and breathing in that crisp fresh air, seeing the wild rugged terrain - it truly felt like we had arrived home. From the endless free (& dog friendly) camps to the quiet roads and humble folk. The scenery in Tassie is truly invigorating, regardless of when and where you visit there is always an adventure to be had and some place special to be found."

Must sees:

1. Climb Mt Amos at sunrise

2. Head to the North East Coast to see The Bay Of Fires

3. Hike Cape Roul and feel like you’ve reached the end of the world

4. Ride the ferry to Maria Island to explore rich indigenous culture

5. Eat, drink and surf your way around Bruny Island

Margaret River Via @fieldnotes

“Margaret River is one of Western Australia's most celebrated Regions and I completely agree. From pristine beaches and looming expanses of Karri Forest to some of the finest wineries and eateries in Aus. I’ll never get sick of this place!”

Must sees:

1. Huddle around the campfire and sleep under the stars in Boranup Forest

2. Eat and drink yourself silly at Arimia Estate or Eagle Bay Brewing co. neither will disappoint

3. Spend the day at Meelup for a calm turquoise dip and catch sunset at Sugarloaf Rock

4. Check out one of four caves in the Margaret River area - my favourite is Lake Cave!

Byron Bay Via @_anrielle

“Growing up in Byron Bay was how you might imagine. The ocean saw every stage of life and growth, paired with friendly smiles and a tight knit community. The food is fresh and the coffee is good”.

Must sees:

1. Walk the lighthouse, it never fails.

2. Any beach you find, seriously they’re all incredibly stunning. Try and get to as many as you can.

Must eat:

1. Bayleaf Cafe, I’m literally there multiple times a day.

Northern Territory Via @lauraalycebell

“It doesn't matter what images/footage you may have seen, the beauty that is Uluru has to be seen (in person) to be believed. The most incredible energy surrounds this sacred and spiritual land which was without a doubt the highlight of my trip."

"We road tripped down to Alice Springs, where my trip came to a very sad end but there are many incredible spots and 'must see' locations that I would recommend anyone.”

Must sees:

1. Field Of Lights

2. Skydive over Uluru

3. Kings Canyon National Park

4. Hot Air Balloon in Alice (if your budget allows)

5. Earth Sanctuary - family operated living/breathing centre.
