An estimated three-hour drive from Darwin; admire waterfalls that leap from 150-metre-high cliffs into deep plunge pools at the Jim Jim. In full flood during the region’s tropical summer, between late November to March, it is best to see the thundering power and majesty of these waterfalls via a scenic helicopter flight during this time. Or take a serene boat cruise on the swollen Magela Creek and float through scenic paperbark forests — an unmissable wet-season only experience.

Grampians National Park, Victoria

It may be a three-hour drive from Melbourne, but Grampians National Park is otherworldly with rugged mountain ranges and majestic canyons, gorges and rolling valleys as far as the eye can see.

Take in the grandeur of the Grampians from the Balconies, a viewing platform that is just a 30-minute walk from the car park. Keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife such as emus, wedge-tailed eagles, koalas and kangaroos. Admire rocky escarpments, deep gorges, misty waterfalls (at least four are accessible on foot including one of Australia’s most stunning waterfalls, MacKenzie Falls  — explore the walking trails with an aboriginal guide). From September to November, be mesmerized by carpets of colourful wildflowers.

Freycinet National Park, Tasmania

Few places in Australia can compete with the beauty of Freycinet National Park in Tasmania, which is loaded with natural assets, including dramatic pink granite peaks, pristine sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters.

Lounge on one of the world’s top 10 beaches at Wineglass Bay, a mere two-and-a-half hour drive out of Hobart, or take a refreshing dip in the curved bay’s sapphire waters. To end your day on the right note, make sure you have a good view of the granite mountains of the Hazards at sundown, as they glow pink in the light of sunset.
