The Aussie travel wishlist

Back in September 2011 we posted the list of “10 things to do in Australia before you die“.

In that list we had things like visit the rock (Uluru), drive the Great Ocean Road and see the penguins at Phillip Island.

Apparently a list was compiled by Australian Traveller Magazine by 800 reader nominations. There are 100 in the list but the top 10 included:

Visit Lord Howe Island
Fly over the Bungle Bungles
See Lake Eyre in flood
Walk our most beautiful beach at Wineglass Bay
Take a year off and drive around Australia
Go back to nature in Kakadu
Explore ancient Arnhem Land
Visit the Australian Antarctic Territory
Cross the country both ways by train
Soak up the spectacular Flinders Ranges

How many can you tick off? Or are there places you want to add to the list?!
