If you go to Australia without visiting these places, I'll be disappointed in you

I lived for Australia for 6ish months (although it feels like a lot more) — flying in and out of the country and calling both Cairns and Melbourne home. I can't say I wrestled any crocodiles, but I DID find some freakin' incredible places that will be dear to my heart forever. Pleaseeee save these you won't regret it
