About Historical locations Guide In Australia
Australia was colonized in the late eighteenth century by European settlers and thus in comparison to other countries is seems pretty young. Australia was however occupied by the indigenous Australians for over a time period of 65,000 years. Australia is a beautiful land with natural beauty bestowed over it. The flora and fauna of Australia are worth seeing. The kangaroos and dingoes are what makes Australia so popular for its wildlife. Australia is equally famous in terms of shopping destination, dining spots, cruising, beaches and adventure. Australia also has a rich history and culture to experience which people and travelers from all across the world visit Australia. Australia has been bestowed with God’s grace in true sense. Below listed are the most famous and significant historical places in Australia.
1. PORT ARTHUR
Port Arthur in Tasmania, Australia is among the historical sites in Australia. The place resembles the place where the recalcitrant convicts who were the worst had been kept. Numerous convicts who came out earlier from the Port Arthur had a quite grim life and those who were reoffended suffered an even tougher life. A tour of this historical place in Australia dictates the stories of the cruel life which the convicts suffered and failed attempts of escape which they made. The place is visited by many people who love history and are interested in exploring historical sites.
Australia had wool sustained within its colonies in the early years of settlement and later on with gold brought along riches to Australia. The Eureka Stockade located in the Ballarat goldfields marked the commencement of the new gold age. 1854 saw the uprising of the army along with which twenty-two miners lost their life and was a turning point for the labors. The labor rights saw male suffrage which was universal. This site which showed utmost rebellion now witnesses the Museum of Australia Democracy at Eureka. This is a famous historical site in Australia.
3. THE STUART HIGHWAY
For quite a long time, it was believed that there existed a huge inland sea amidst Australia. Later on John Mc Dougall managed to cross the continent travelling from south and reaching the northern part after 5 failed attempts and finally at the sixth attempt he was successful. The rout and path which he discovered was put to use as the way of the Overland Telegraph Line. This route connected Australia to rest of the world. The Stuart Highway also follows this path broadly and is a famous historical site in Australia.
4. COOK'S LANDING SITE
In the year 1770, Lt Cook's Endeavour managed to locate Australia’s East Coast through his European ship for the very first time. He then paved a path for colonization later after eighteen years. This historical place in Australia is located near Silver Beach in Kurnell. It is part was the first European ship to sight Australia's East Coast. This is a historical site in Australia which many people with interest in history visit.
5. ELIZABETH FARM
Sydney was the place where the convicts first settled. Parramatta was proved by the farmers to be viable for the fledgling colony. John MacArthur was one of the pioneers who owned the Elizabeth Farm and this farm still stands as a heritage building and museum in Australia. He was eliminated from the Australian wool industry due to the import of merino wool. However, this Elizabeth Farm in Australia is a historical place in Australia.

Trip to AustraliaIt was a great tour organised by Travel triangle. Everything gone very smooth without any trouble. Hotels in Sydney and Gold Coast were excellent, hotel in Melbourne was average. Itinerary provided was very informative and helpful. Arranged local transportations were very comfortable. In the end I would like to thank to Travel triangle and Fantabulous which was the tour travel agent for making my trip memorable. Great ocean trip was the best memory of the trip.
Trip to AustraliaWe are the widely traveled senior citizens chose to visit Australia and covered Melbourne, Gold-Coast, Cairns and Sydney. The services of Travel Triangle & Fantabulous are great in general and the interactions with Ishita & Narendar is really superb. Appreciate Ishita's patience and cool handling of demanding customers like me. Narendar is meticulous. But, Travel Triangle/Fantabulous need to go a long way and required to improve & innovate the "Flight-Booking-System and Method" without hurting or taxing both sides.

Trip to Australiait was wonderful trip ... everything was well planned . thanks wanderbird holidays for this memorable holiday.
Trip to AustraliaI could customize my trip and also everything was as per plan and hassle free. i have only one suggestion- Please aware customer about the Visa deadlines when you yourself bear the cost. It costed me more and risk of not meeting deadline was faced just because of lack of communication on time. Also the victoria hotel in melbourne is good. But my experience with Novotel Rockford hotel in sydney was not good.
Trip to AustraliaI would like to thanks Travel Triangle and Memorable Vacations especially Krishna and Ashish for planning such a wonderful Australia trip. Almost everything was perfect ad as per our expectations. I would definitely recommend them.
Trip to New ZealandI booked my Australia & NZ (South Island) holiday with the travel agent Hub Holidays. It has been a great service by the travel agent. The agent really has an in-depth knowledge of the travel aspects for these countries. Both Amit and Prashanth guided me right from the initial booking stage of the holiday to the completion of our trip. They have been always available on the phone and watsapp for any issues encountered by me during the Holiday. It has been a great service and I look forward to revisit New Zealand, both north and south islands with the assistance from this travel agent. Sky diving in queenstown has been an amazing memory of my trip.

We wish them all the luck for future endeavours and will surely travel with them in the future. Prateek and Ria
Trip to AustraliaWe booked the flight tickets from HubHolidays. Yeeshu and Prashant handled our booking pretty well. Yeeshu was extremely proactive in checking flight tickets for us. For about a week or so he kept checking tickets until we got the best one. He kept the tickets on hold for us when he found appropriate and low fare flight for us and we did the bookings in no time. I couldn't have got that rates by myself. This included the travel insurance and VISA assistance as well. VISA assistance (Pawan and Team) also amazingly handled and we had no problem whatsoever. The sightseeing options provided were also good and at comparable rates but we wanted to see them at our leisure at the destination itself. In all, it was a great experience for us and would recommend to check them out while planning a trip. Shout out to Yeeshu again for handling our booking well. :)
