So with international travel pretty much off the cards until at least the end of 2020 (if not longer) many of us will need to itch the travel bug in Australia and possibly NZ down the track.

Outside of the major capital city metro regions that are all worth visiting if you haven't been with plenty to see and do, what are some other places around the country you've been to or plan to go?

Thinking regions, towns, smaller cities, landmarks, landscapes, etc.

Canberra is good for a few days especially with kids, plenty of free stuff to see and do.

Agree. I have $1200 flight credits due in February. Hoping I get more than one flight for that.

Really keen to see what Echuca is like compared to mildura riverland etc.

Any ideas for a good winter getaway in Vic or NSW given borders closed elsewhere Something to do outside in day so preferably not too wet. Would just put up with cold. No different to Melbourne anyway

Anywhere that is world class nature wise is infested with crocs and stingers.

Might be worth trying a local destination that usually gets a lot of overseas patrons. With no international travel could be good deals to be had plus it helps out the local industry. Uluru is one place I haven't been, perhaps that ticks the boxes. Great Ocean Rd is another.
