Where should you visit this holiday?

Wednesday, 20 December 2017 4:36:00 pm Australia/Sydney

Hello everyone!

It’s that time of the year again!
Where are you planning to spend your holidays?

Being Australians yourself, have you been to these places?
Today we’ll suggest 3 places for you to check them out this festive holiday!

The shipwrecked SS Ayrfield in New South Wales

Wonder how a Ghost ship look like? Abandoned and rundown.
How about plants growing all over it and floating in the middle of the ocean?

It’s not hard to think that this image might have come from a scene by the Studio Ghibli. (The animation company behind Totoro, Howl’s moving castle, etc)

This abandoned ship is actually 106 years old. The shipwrecked SS Ayrfield has earned itself the nickname ‘The Floating Forest’ among locals and tourists alike thanks to the flora that’s spouted within the rusted, floating wreckage over the years.

It is originally used as a steam collier which was later used to transport supplies to American troops stationed in the Pacific region during World War II. Afterwhich, this ship serve as a collier between Newcastle and Miller's terminal in Blackwattle Bay.

Eventually, in 1972, the SS Ayrfield was retired and sent to Homebush Bay which served as a ship-breaking yard. How cool is that!

Though you won’t be able to go onboard this Ghost Ship, you can take a scenic photo or selfie from a distance.

Pinnacles, Western Australia

Take a roadtrip up Western Australia you may just end up at this place call Pinnacles. Take a scenic walk and drive trail winds past the ancient limestone pillars of the Pinnacles, some several metres tall. They're scattered across the desert in their thousands, creating an eerie, alien-like landscape. Some are as high as three and half metres, and some finish in a jagged point, while others have rounded domes, resembling tombstones. Made up of shells, the Pinnacles date back millions of years to an epoch when the sand was beneath the sea.

Apart from the amazing Pinnacles Desert, Nambung National Park is also known for its beautiful beaches at Kangaroo Point and Hangover Bay, coastal dune systems and low heathland rich in flowering plants.

So make it a day trip!

The Principality of HuttRiver

Bet you didn’t know there was a separate country within Australia?

It’s called the Principality of Hutt River and was formed after seceding from Australia in 1970 over a conflict regarding wheat. This country has its own currency, stamps, drivers license and visas, so when you visit, make sure you bring your passport!

A bust of Prince Leonard oversees the capital

The Principality of Hutt River is a micronation in Australia. The principality claims to be an independent sovereign state and to have achieved legal status on 21 April 1970. The principality is located 517 km (354 mi) north of Perth, near the town of Northampton in the state of Western Australia.
