Places in Oceania

Oceania is one of our planet's most serene, mysterious, and spiritual places. This is why visiting it at least once a lifetime is a must. However, it's also a vast and diverse place; seeing just one location in Oceania doesn't mean you get the entire experience. Sure, the memories you earn there will last you a lifetime; nonetheless, you're getting something unique and specific to that particular Oceanian region. Because the choice of location makes so much difference, here's the selection of seven places widely considered the most beautiful in Oceania.

1. Christmas Island

We've picked Christmas Island as the first place on this list because it has virtually every feature people associate with Oceania. First, it has a balmy tropical climate. Second, it has incredibly diverse wildlife. In fact, it is widely considered to be a hotspot for ornithologists all over the globe. Besides this, it provides you with experiences such as cave diving and grotto swimming. Overall, it has everything you expect from a trip to Oceania and more.

2. Fiji

The tiny Republic of Fiji is one of the first places on this list. Reasons for visiting the place are numerous, ranging from the fact that it has some of the most dazzling beaches in the world to its culture and natural beauties that are more than worth exploring. The cuisine of Fiji is simply superb, which is also why a visit to this place could also be planned as a part of your gourmet tour. Also, remember that Fiji is heaven for all those passionate about golfing, seeing as how it boasts some of the most exciting courses in the world. Besides this, it's an excellent place to learn surfing.

3. Great Barrier Reef

When speaking about the most unique places in the world, one must visit the Great Barrier Reef. Why? Well, first of all, it's the single giant living thing on Earth, with over 2,900 coral reefs stretching almost 1,400 miles. In other words, it's a place that takes a top priority on the list of anyone interested in observing wildlife. Underwater exploration of the Great Barrier Reef is like no other, and it has incredibly diverse marine life (aside from the breathtaking reef itself). Still, not all of the activities here take place underwater. The Daintree Rainforest, for instance, is a place that's more than worth visiting.

3. Tasmania

Another excellent Oceanian location you should visit is the paradise island of Tasmania. This Australian island state is rich in unique landscapes and adventure chances. The island is vast, so you should further pinpoint your vacation to Tasmania. One suggestion for first-time visitors to the island would be to pay a visit to its west coast. Regarding things to do in Tasmania, the west coast has the most unique experiences, such as traveling by West Coast Wilderness Railway and taking a walkingiver Whyte. Let the road take you to Tasmania's natural wonders, which never cease to amaze you. This island represents a unique symbiosis between pristine wilderness and first-world country tourism.

4. Mount Cook

When taking a completely different approach to exploring Oceania and considering activities such as alpinism, Mount Cook is the first location that comes to mind. Why? Well, first of all, it's the tallest mountain in New Zealand. Other than hiking to the Mueller Hut and walking to the viewpoint by the Mueller Lake, this is also one of the best places for stargazing that you're ever going to visit. As far as the unique activities go, one of the things you can do here is to enjoy a helicopter ride from which you'll see some of the most amazing landscapes and take images that you can later display in the living room and brag to your guests about.

5. Waitomo Caves

Another location worth visiting in New Zealand is the incredible Waitomo Caves. Now, the first thing you need to do once you get there is enlist in a Blackwater rafting, which you can only afford to take advantage of. The place is located on the North Island, which would allow you to explore the surrounding area. The Tongariro National Park and Sky Tower in Auckland are also locations you can take advantage of.

6. Uluru

This list would only be complete with at least one continental location, and it doesn't get any more continental than Uluru. This is primarily because it's located at the heart of the Australian continent and would (ideally) require you to embark on a road trip across Australia to get there. The place is the spiritual center of the indigenous culture and is one of Earth's most unique geological foundations. Each of the reasons above would be good enough for you to plan the next trip there. Put together. However, makes a trip to Uluru a top priority.

In conclusion

Only a handful of people know how hard it is to qualify for this list – those who have dedicated their lives to exploring this region. Even for a casual tourist, it shouldn't be that hard to see the beauty and diversity of this part of the world. Aquatic, temperate, and dazzling, Oceania seems to have it all. So, when choosing which of the above-listed seven locations to visit, it's by far the smartest not to choose but to visit all of them instead. Later on, you should feel free to expand this list on your own. The truth is that when it comes to exploring Oceania, you really can't go wrong.
