(The Living Rock) also known as Ayers Rock, is a mystical, magical sandstone outcrop in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, 440 km southwest of Alice Springs in the Australian Outback. It has many springs, water-holes, rock caves and ancient paintings. It is sacred to the Aboriginal people of the area. It is listed twice as a World Heritage Site - for its natural beauty and its paintings. It is one of Australia's best known natural wonders and tourist sites. Despite its isolated location it is a must-visit for anybody travelling to Australia.
#2. VICTORIA FALLS:
On the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe in southern Africa. A mile wide and 420 ft high, they are far bigger than North America's Niagara Falls, forming the largest vertical sheet of water in the world. They were "discovered" by David Livingstone in 1855 and named for Queen Victoria.
You may not be young enough, fit enough or crazy enough to climb Mount Everest -but there's no reason you shouldn't visit base-camp and take a close-up look at the highest mountain on Earth.It's an unforgettable adventure, and it's a lot cheaper than you might expect -Three-weeks in the Himalayas will you cost less than a week on a Mediterranean cruise-ship!
Carved by the Colorado River over millions of years, the canyon is around 277 miles (446 km) long.... so huge and so spectacular that it is impossible to do it justice with a few photographs. Words cannot convey its majesty either! You simply have to go there and experience it for yourself!
The sheer majesty of a 52 foot, 50 ton creature leaping clear out
of the ocean is something that simply cannot be described in words.
#6. Snow-capped mountains, tropical beaches, raging rivers, majestic fjords, steaming hot-springs, dense forests, spectacular caves - New Zealand has them all! This entire country is a natural wonder!
#7. The Falls can be viewed from both America and Canada.
Each side offers a different perspective. The American side has great views of Horseshoe falls and the skyline on the Canadian side. The Canadian side has views of American and Horseshoe Falls.
#8. The Aurora Borealis is a bright, often colourful light show in the northern polar sky. It is caused (to put it simply) when the solar wind from the sun collides with the Earth's outer magnetic atmosphere. The Aurora Borealis flickers across the northern sky on a regular basis, day and night, all year. But, like the moon and stars, it is only visible when the sky is dark. The northern skies don't get dark in summer - so the best time to see The Aurora is on a clear winter's night.
The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system. Made up of around 3,000 individual reefs and over 900 islands, it stretches for more than 1,600 miles,
This is Eco-Tourism at its finest! Mulu is a truly wondrous place - you really must go there! Many of the caves are illuminated, and visitors can marvel at 600-foot "indoor" waterfalls. You will also marvel (and possibly shudder) every evening, when more than a million bats stream from the caves like a dense black cloud, to spend the night gorging on Mulu's rich insect population.
The caves and the bats are a must-see! But Mulu has a great deal more to make you gawp in amazement. Like the 1500+ species of flowering plants - including nearly 200 types of orchids. Or the 67 species of mammals, 260 species of birds, 74 species of frogs, and 281 species of butterflies!
There are also towering mountains, unexplored rivers and the sheer majesty of Borneo's rain-forest.
1. Uluru (Ayers Rock)

3. Mount Everest
4. The Grand Canyon
5. Humpback Whales
6. New Zealand
7. Niagara Falls

From Seacology's Top 10 Tips to Save the World's Islands:
Since 1999, Seacology has launched over 130 island-based projects, saving 1,741,062 acres of marine ecosystems and 98,507 acres of precious terrestrial habitat. Seacology projects provide a tangible benefit, such as an elementary school or a fresh water delivery system for island villagers, in exchange for the establishment of a marine or forest reserve.
You too can help save the world's islands! Seacology has compiled a list of the top 10 things you can do to protect islands and enjoy your island experience.
1. Spend your vacation at a true eco-resort. Many establishments claim to be environmentally friendly, yet confine their efforts to encouraging you to re-use your towel. If a resort is calling itself eco-friendly, ask why before making a reservation. Resorts such as the Jean Michel Cousteau Fiji Island Resort (www.fijiresort.com) and the accommodations at the Chumbe Island Coral Park (www.chumbeisland.com) provide a true, one-of-a-kind ecologically responsible vacation experience.
2. Take nothing but pictures. Do not collect shells or other wildlife as souvenirs of your trip. That shell you want to take might be the future home of a hermit crab.
3. Offset your carbon. Flying to an island releases large amounts of CO2 into the air. Compensate for the negative environmental impacts of your travel by contributing to Seacology's Carbon Neutral Fund (LINK HERE). Your dollars will assist Seacology's efforts to support tree planting and clean energy projects on islands throughout the world.
4. Cool off responsibly. Many tropical islands are cooled by trade winds. Shutting off the air conditioning will not only save energy, it will also allow you to hear the breeze passing through the palm trees and the chirping of the birds. If conditions are sweltering and you must use the air conditioning, turn it off when you leave your room!
5. Respect and appreciate the diversity of island cultures and languages. The devastation of island cultures is happening at an alarming rate. One island alone - Papua New Guinea - is home to over 800 languages, many of which are spoken by only a small number of tribal elders. Before you go, learn a little about the culture and language of the island you plan to visit. The smiles that greet you when you use the local language will be a nice added bonus.
6. Don't destroy underwater life. When scuba diving or snorkeling, do not touch anything. Coral reefs are very fragile and take a long time to grow. You will also save yourself from nasty stings and bites by adopting a no-touch policy.
7. Avoid disposable products. Waste disposal is a critical problem on many of the world's islands. Do not bring disposable products on your vacation.
8. See an island's hidden treasures and get closer to nature. Reduce your impact on an island's environment and atmosphere by engaging in eco-friendly activities instead of motorized ones such as jeep or helicopter tours. Kayaking, biking, hiking and sailing are great ways to see the beauty of island ecosystems. You will also meet a lot more people when you are out of your car.
9. Support local economies, save fossil fuel and discover new flavors by eating locally caught and produced foods. Not only that, but the local coconut dessert is a lot fresher than the packaged cupcake made months ago in a country thousands of miles away.
10. Help launch new projects to protect island environments and cultures by supporting Seacology. Seacology works directly with island villagers to create initiatives that both protect precious habitats, and improve quality of life. In the words of Dr. John McCosker of the California Academy of Sciences, "Dollar for dollar, pound for pound, Seacology gets more output than any conservation group that I've seen."
