When looking for inspiration for landscaping your own backyard, all you need is a landscaping professional such as Premium Pools and Gardens and Australia’s natural landscapes.
The Daintree Rainforest
Where the forest meets the sea. Located in Queensland’s tropical north, you’ll find lush, green rainforests on the banks of the crystal blue waters of the Pacific. This is where one of the world’s most ancient rainforests, the Daintree meets the world’s largest coral reefs, the Great Barrier Reef. Here, you’ll come up close with a plethora of plants and wildlife.
One of Australia’s lesser known natural landscapes. Located a few hundred kilometres north of Perth, this collection of rock formations was mistaken as an ancient city by early Dutch explorers. Perched overlooking the Indian Ocean, you’ll be enchanted by this eerily inspiring landscape jutting out from a creamy yellow desert of sand.
The Freycinet Peninsular
Perched on Tasmania’s east coast, you’ll find yourself surrounded by crisp southern air, crystal blue oceans and rich green forests. Coles Bay, Wineglass Bay, and the Freycinet National Park promise you the space to think, to be inspired, or to just be. You can’t help but be positively overwhelmed by towering pink granite mountains that emerge from the majestic and pristine oceans.
Uluru and Kata Tjuta
You can’t get much more iconic than Uluru and Kata Tjuta. They say Uluru is where the spiritual, the physical, and the emotional meet. Hear stories of the Dreamtime. Watch the rock change colour in the setting sun. Be inspired by a galaxy of stars in the midnight desert skies. In Australia’s spiritual centre, you can’t but feel at one with it all – the land, the sky, the people, and the heart.
The Twelve ApostlesNestled on Victoria’s south coast, be amazed at sheer cliffs diving into the freezing southern ocean. Cruise the Great Ocean Road with the bush on one side and the sea on the other. Just sit. Enjoy the ocean and feel the wind off the sea whipping against your skin.
The Snowy Mountains
Australia’s highest point provides year-round inspiration. Summertime brings green rolling hills, crystal blue inland lakes and natural bouquets of wildflowers. Winter sees the slopes turn into Australia’s wonderland of snow! From warm summer bushwalks to the winter excitement of the snow, the ‘Snowys’ is sure to inspire 365 days a year.
This is but a short list of Australia’s inspiring natural landscapes. There’s a stack of others to explore – the majesty of Wave Rock. The proud Three Sisters. The expanse of the Nullarbor Plains. The deep beauty of Katherine Gorge.
