• Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park named top destination in Australia


    Australia is certainly not lacking when it comes to popular tourist destinations. Whether it's exploring the Great Barrier Reef, enjoying the city life in Sydney or roughing it in the Outback, The Land Down Under has plenty to do. However, at the recent Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, experts cited Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park as the top destination of them all.

    Located in Australia's Northern Territory, the famous national park is situated almost square in the middle of the country. The park's remote location has not deterred hundreds of thousands of visitors to make the journey, and thanks to its unrivaled natural beauty it's easy to see why. The most recognizable landmark on the grounds is Uluru, an enormous sandstone monolith that stands more than 1,140 feet tall.

    The national park was not the only tourist destination in Australia to be honored at the awards, however. The Maria Island Walk in Tasmania was named as the best adventure travel spot largely because of its impressive biodiversity and picturesque landscape. Other winners include the Venture North Australia for best Heritage and Cultural Tourism and the 2012 Tamworth Country Music Festival in New South Wales as the Best Major Festival.
