Everybody has heard of the Great Barrier Reef and the Sidney Opera and wants to visit them if they have not yet, but this does not mean that there are no other places worth visiting. On the contrary, there are some great places there that not that many tourists visit. And maybe that is why they are so special.

#1 The Pink Lake

Lake Hillier, also know as the Pink Lake, is becoming more and more popular among tourists. As its second name suggests the water in the lake is pink which makes it so attractive to a lot of people.

If you want to have a better look of the lake, you can take a helicopter ride above it. This way the water in the lake will look thicker as if it is a lake of bubble gum and not pink water.

The good thing is that it has not been proven that the water is dangerous to people which means that you can even have a walk around the lake and try the water.

#2 The floating forest

Have you ever thought that one day you can actually see a forest that will be floating on the surface of some water pool and it will not be on land? You can actually see one and this is in Australia. Homebush Bay, which is located eastern from Sidney, is the place where you can see the wreck of an old ship with living flora inside it.

The ship which is now a home to some plants was used during the Second World War to transport war supplies and coal and oil. It is definitely something worth seeing in person, although, as you can guess, you will not be able to go on board of it. It is still better to stay safe.

This used to be a railroad but in was closed in the 1930s and the lines were removed from the tunnel as well. Now it looks more like a cave than an old tunnel.
