The Most Bizarre Places in Australia You Have to See to Believe

Most of the time, the most memorable travel experience is when you go to a weird or strange place. In fact, an adventure to a bizarre destination is something you will remember for the rest of your life. It can become something much more special than just a trip to the same beach every year. Fortunately, there are a ton of ‘weird’ places around the world. And we mean that in a loving way. We’re all about the unusual here. If you’re planning to visit Australia, it also has strange destinations, of course. To give you a better view, here are some of the most bizarre places in Australia you have to see to believe.

1. Wycliffe Well

Wycliffe Well is considered the “UFO capital of Australia.” In fact, it is one of the top places where UFO sightings are reported. This phenomenon began when servicemen reported that they saw weird lights in the sky during World War II. From there, the city has established a lot of alien-related attractions. So, if you’re a fan of extraterrestrial sightings, Wycliffe Well should be on your list of tourist destinations you should visit.

2. Coober Pedy


One of the most bizarre places in Australia is Coober Pedy. At first glance, you will think that this place is a deserted area or a dystopian city. The reason is that the citizens of Coober Pedy live underground. To explain further, the climate in this area is harsh, and the temperature rises to as high as 50 degrees Celsius. That’s 122 degrees Fahrenheit! Because of this harsh climate, the people of Cobber Pedy decided to live underground.

3. Talbot Bay

Waterfalls are among the most stunning places you can visit. In Talbot Bay, you will see a unique waterfall. Instead of the water flowing vertically, the waterfall in this tourist destination flows horizontally. The reason for this strange effect is due to the extreme tidal currents that squeeze through the two narrow canyons or gorges. Because of this unique feature, the Horizontal Falls is considered one of the greatest wonders of the world.

4. Pink Lakes


Finally, the last on this list of bizarre places in Australia is the pink lakes. To be specific, there are several pink lakes in Australia, including Lake Hillier, Hutt Lagoon, and Pink Lake. The reason for this unique color is the presence of bacteria that produce a chemical with a rosy shade. If you want to visit these strange but beautiful lakes, you can schedule your trip on a sunny day, when the sky is clear. That way, you can witness and enjoy the magnificent view of these pink lakes.
