Australia is known for many things such as its beautiful landscapes, variety of wildlife, and iconic architecture. Although every area of the country offers the same great food and scenery, each city is unique. Whether your niche is hiking, interacting with animals, or clubbing, you'll find something to do in the "land down under." Here is a list of 5 of Australia's must-visit cities.

1. Sydney

Sydney is unarguably Australia's most iconic city which makes it surprising that it isn't the country's capital. Sydney is an amazing city full of everything from the beautiful Blue Mountains to a CBD filled with great food and nightlife.

The city is most known for its iconic architecture in its central harbor. The Sydney Opera House is one of the most beautiful and unique buildings in the world. Across from it sits the Sydney Harbour Bridge which tourists can climb for a hefty price, though the view is well worth it. On top of its great buildings and CBD, Sydney is home to dozens of beautiful beaches like Bondi and Manly.

2. Melbourne

Melbourne is the perfect city for art-lovers. The streets are filled with colorful graffiti and there's plenty of small hipster bars. The nightlife in Melbourne is unbeatable. There's a huge variety of clubs and most aren't strict on dress codes as they are in other places. There are plenty of cheap, fun bars in Melbourne that you can get into with sweatpants on.

3. Hobart

Hobart is located in Tasmania, Australia's southern-most region. Its weather isn't all that great, but the views from basically everywhere are beautiful. Hobart is home to Mount Wellington which is completely visible from anywhere in the city. While there isn't much nightlife in the rather quiet city, the seafood is unbeatable.

Most other cities like Sydney import their fish from Tasmania, so the restaurants in Hobart are top-notch. It's also one of the cheaper places in Australia which makes it great for travelers on a budget.

4. Cairns

Cairns is a tropical city in Queensland, Australia. The city is considered to be the entryway to the Great Barrier Reef.

This makes it a great option for those who love the ocean. It has plenty of beautiful beaches and provides visitors with the opportunity to snorkel with exotic marine animals.

5. Byron Bay

Byron Bay is a small beach town close to Australia's Gold Coast. Its weather is almost always beautiful and the people are all incredibly friendly. The town is a health-hub with streets full of restaurants that offer power-smoothies and acai bowls, as well as dozens of people who choose their bikes as their only way of transportation.

No matter where you go in Australia, the country is a must-visit destination for any traveler. It is easily one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in the world.
