Australia is truly a country for nature lovers and for many of us, we are itching to get out to explore The Great Outdoors. The good news is as restrictions start to lift, national parks are going to be some of the first areas we can leave our house to roam. We are lucky to live in a country whose sheer size lends itself to a wide variety of landscapes; from mountain ranges and deserts, to tropical rain forests, and beaches. The lush hinterlands, sea cliffs, dense rain forests, and canyons are all there waiting to be explored - now more than ever.
