As the only country with a whole continent all to itself. Australia has one of the most unique and unusual natural surroundings in the world. It is the flattest, driest and least fertile continent on earth and the weather it experiences is extremely variable. Because of this, the overwhelming majority of Australia 's diverse plant and animal species are endemic, meaning that they exist naturally nowhere else but in Australia. This makes a trek in the outback an absolute must for travelers coming from abroad. Most of the country's population is located in and around Sydney, a multicultural city with great cosmopolitan attractions. Check out the wildlife and hang out with Koalas, platypuses and kangaroos. Go to Melbourne and check out the Royal Exhibition Building originally built in 1880. Head up to the great barrier reef on the north coast for some world-class scuba diving. Don't miss Australia's iconic Uluru monolith (Ayers Rock) – believed to be the world's largest single rock mass. In all, visitors can expect a wide range of totally unique experiences in this incredible country.

"Must see" places/ things in Australia in 3 weeks?
I have one day in Sydney, Australia. What should I see?
Hoping to travel to Australia from Canada for 3 weeks in Sept. 2009. Thinking of going to Sydney-Melbourne-Adelaide, any tips? As that too much/too little to see in 3 weeks? Also, any tips for the cheapest time to fly to Oz from Canada as I could change the travel date if needed.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Australia
The best city in the world.

The city of shopping, the famous cuckoo clock that plays Waltzing Matilda and Mt Dandenong which makes for a nice day trip. Don't drive unless you are very brave. The trams and traffic have an uneasy set of rules. The Melbourne Tennis Center is home to the Australian Open and of course this is the home of Aussie Rules. Lots of great Greek and Italian restaurants and a thriving metropolis of cultures.
