Bali

Bali draws in hordes of Australian tourists each year with its beaches, coral reefs, rice fields, and volcanic mountains.

Bali's the first place to go when you need to switch off your phone, swim in the ocean, or trek up to religious sites and meditate. It’s also the place to go for a good party, with popular tourist spots such as Kuta and Seminyak bursting with internationals during the sultrier months.
