Australia is a land of extraordinary natural beauty. Filled with an abundance of one-of-a-kind natural formations, Australia is an ode to the uniqueness and amazing power of nature. With deep cultural and geological significance, Australia’s dramatic landscapes and features are visited by millions every year. So what better way to pay homage to these majestic sights than to display them in all their glory in your home?
Also known as Ayers Rock, Uluru is the world’s largest monolithic rock. It is located in the Australian Northern Territory, where it stands tall and commands over the red deserts of the outback. The bright red colour of Uluru changes over the day, taking on the deepest shade of red at dusk.
This amazing natural formation is over 600 million years old and is considered sacred by the local aboriginal Anangu people. According to them, the rock was created by ancestral beings at the beginning of time. The rock and its surroundings are intricately woven into Aboriginal culture.
Viewing the rock is a spiritual and profound experience. A picture of Uluru in your living room or mediation area will make you feel a deep appreciation for this beautiful part of Australian culture and a connection with the landscape.
THE THREE SISTERS
The Three Sisters are three distinctly shaped peaks situated in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. At over 900m in height, the peaks look like three giants watching over the valley. Various aborginial stories refer to these peaks as three sisters named Meenhi, Wimlah, and Gunnedoo, who got turned into stone, giving birth to their names.
The peaks look like they are part of a fantasy landscape with their strange and mesmerising beauty. It’s a view that sparks the imagination and unleashes creativity. Put up a photo of The Three Sisters on the wall, and you’ll find yourself drawn to its unusual beauty again and again!
THE TWELVE APOSTLES
Take a drive through the scenic Great Ocean Road in Victoria, and you’ll come across several limestone columns along the coast. These columns, known as The Twelve Apostles, are among the most popular tourist spots in Australia. Despite their name, The Twelves Apostles were originally nine limestone pillars. The very weather that created the columns is also the reason for their destruction. Two of these pillars collapsed in 2005 and 2009, leaving just seven standing.
Photos of The Twelve Apostles serve as reminders of the duality of nature. It shows that change is constant, and prompts you to enjoy every moment.
Away from the Australian mainland lie some of the most beautiful sceneries Oceania has to offer. Located in the Central Highlands of Tasmania, Cradle Mountain and its surroundings are undoubtedly one among these. Cradle Mountain is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area known for its diverse landscapes. I personally LOVE going to Cradle - I reckon I would have visited this area at least 15 times. The mountain looks particularly spectacular at sunrise and sunset, with Dove Lake reflecting the reddish hue of the sky. Photographs of Cradle Mountain at either sunrise or sunset have a regal look that can turn them into the highlight of any room.
THE GREAT BARRIER REEF
The Great Barrier Reef is the most popular of Australia's natural wonders. Located off the Queensland coast in the Coral Sea, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world. The reef supports a remarkable marine biodiversity, and is home to thousands of unique species, many of which are endangered.
Tranquil shades of blues and greens dotted with pops of colour from corals and other marine life are fascinating to look at, and showcase the splendour of nature. Artworks of the Great Barrier Reef bring out these extraordinary sights and add a bit of life and nature to the room, reminding you of all the incredible beauty that Australia has to offer.
Wallace’s Hut is among the oldest mountain huts in Victoria. Situated in the Alpine National Park, this hut was built by the pioneering Wallace Brothers out of Snow Gums. The hut is part of the historical monuments in the park and is set along a scenic route. Misty views of Wallace’s hut are popular prints in interiors. They add an enchanting beauty to the room while appreciating an Australian icon.
