The castle still stretches out its enfolding arms to enclose the historic town in a stony embrace, originally designed to keep a tiny English colony safe from the populace they displaced.

Even today it's an awe-inspiring sight. It's in the provision of top-notch produce that Wales has found its culinary niche, chanting the mantra 'local, sustainable and organic' all the way. Many fine restaurants have sprung up in the Welsh countryside, such as the Whitebrook in Monmouthshire, namedropping their farmers, butchers and other suppliers as if they were rock stars. Local craft breweries supply the better local pubs, while Penderyn Distillery has brought whisky, that nectar of the Celts, back to this once teetotal land.

Some classics have never gone away — pass us another Welsh cake, will you? Whether you come armed with hiking boots, a bucket and spade, or a surfboard, Wales' western extremity won't disappoint. Famous in Britain for its beaches and coastal walks, Pembrokeshire is a small sampler of all that Wales has to offer.

Pembroke has one of Britain's finest Norman castles, and there are smaller versions at nearby Tenby, Manorbier, Carew and Haverfordwest. The Preseli Hills offer upland walking and ancient standing stones. Add to that wildlife reserves, cute villages and an ancient cathedral, and all bases are covered. Once you could only get views this good if you were a hunk of Lonely on your way to the port.

This twin set of narrow-gauge train lines now shuttles rail enthusiasts from Porthmadog up into the mountains of Snowdonia, with the Welsh Highland Railway slicing right past Snowdon to the coast at Caernarfon. The Ffestiniog Railway heads to the former industrial heartland of Blaenau Ffestiniog, where you can take a whistle stop to delve into the depths of the slate caverns.

Not as wild as Snowdonia nor as spectacular as the Pembrokeshire Coast, Wales' third national park manages quite a feat — and that's to be simultaneously bleak and beautiful. Walkers will delight in its unpopulated moors and bald hills, while history buffs can seek out hill forts and barrows, and the enigmatic ruins of abbeys and castles. The towns within the park's confines are some of Wales' most endearingly idiosyncratic, including Hay-on-Wye and Abergavenny — hallowed names for book lovers and food fans respectively.

When a former US president describes your annual festival as the 'Woodstock of the mind', you know you're doing something right. This unselfconsciously pretty border town has assumed near mythic proportions among both the worldwide literati and lit-loving Brits as the most book-imbued place in the world.

Hay is like a bizarro world version of tabloid culture, where intellectuals are admired, poets are praised and librarians are the new Kardashians. Oh, and there's good beer and food to be had, too. Ancient Mycenae Argolis Archaeological Site.

Palace of Knossos Knossos Archaeological Site. Mystras Mystras Historic Site. Sanctuary of Apollo Delphi Archaeological Site. Acropolis Museum Acropolis Area Museum.

Meteora Magnificent Meteora will leave you speechless. Ancient Delphi Early morning is a magical time at Delphias the sun's rays pour over the Sanctuary of Athena Pronea. Cutting-Edge Capital Life in Athens is a magnificent mash-up of both the ancient and the contemporary. Cretan Cuisine Waistlines be damned: Crete is the perfect place to indulge. Island Hopping in the Cyclades From the spirited nightlife and celebrity hideaways of Mykonos and Ios, to the isolated sandy coasts of tiny, far-flung specks such as Anafi, hopping through the Cyclades is a Greek experience not to be missed.

Samaria Gorge The dramatic gorge of Samaria is the most-trodden canyon in Crete — and with good reason. Hydra Everyone approaches Hydra by sea. Knossos Rub shoulders with the ghosts of the mighty Minoans. Halkidiki Northern Greece's Halkidiki stretches out into the Aegean like a fat fist with three enticing fingers of sand and sun-soaked bliss.

Hiking the Mani Although it can no longer be described as 'remote', the Mani holds a magic unlike anywhere else in Greece. Ancient Olympia The atmosphere at the site of the first Olympics is almost mythical.

Molyvos A magnificent guest from Asia Minor, the well-preserved medieval Ottoman Lonely of Molyvos in northern Lesvos displays a happy marriage of gorgeous landscape and gracious architecture. Kefallonia's Great Outdoors Kefallonia is a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors. Day tours. Explore all. Featured videos. Sustainable Food Destination: Greece. Islands of unforgettable experiences There are journeys that stay in our memory forever.

Read more stories. Despite its complexity it's possible to witness all of this in a single Sydney moment. Lush green rainforest replete with fan palms, prehistoric-looking ferns and twisted mangroves tumble down towards a brilliant white-sand coastline in the ancient, World Heritage—listed Daintree rainforest.

Continue exploring the area on wildlife-spotting night tours, mountain treks, interpretive boardwalks, canopy walks, self-guided walking trails, 4WD trips, horse riding, kayaking, crocodile-spotting cruises, tropical-fruit orchard tours and tastings…You might even spot a prehistoric cassowary.

You can hop around a whole stack of tropical islands in this seafaring life and never find anywhere with the sheer beauty of the Whitsundays. Travellers of all monetary persuasions launch yachts from Airlie Beach and drift between these lush green isles in a slow search for paradise you'll probably find it in more than Lonely place. Don't miss Whitehaven Beach — one of Australia's and the world's best.

Wish you were here? Described by its owner, Hobart philanthropist David Walsh, as a 'subversive adult Disneyland', three levels of astounding underground galleries showcase more than challenging and controversial artworks from his collections.

You might not like everything you see, but a visit here is a sure-fire conversation starter and one of Australia's favourite arts experiences. The world's largest sand island, Fraser Island is home to dingoes, shipwrecks and all manner of birdlife. Four-wheel drive vehicles — regular cars cannot drive on sand — fan out around epic camp spots and long white beaches. The wild coastline curbs any thoughts of doing much more than wandering between pristine creeks and freshwater lakes.

Beach camping under the stars will bring you back to nature. A short ferry trip away is Hervey Bay, where humpback whales shoot along the coast in winter Lonely spring. Up there with kangaroos and Akubra hats, big-hearted Byron Bay just Byron to its mates is one of the enduring icons of Australian culture. Families on school holidays, surfers and sunseekers from across the globe gather by the foreshore at sunset, drawn to this spot on the world map by fabulous restaurants, a chilled pace of life and an astonishing range of activities on offer.

Why the queue? The next best restaurant, chef, cafe, barista, hidden bar may be the talk of the town, but there are things locals would never change: the leafy parks and gardens in the inner city; the crowded trams that whisk creative 'northerners' to sea-breezy southern St Kilda; and the allegiances that living in such a sports-mad city brings.

Australia's northwestern frontier is one of its most beautiful corners. Broomewhere so many journeys out here begin, is where every evening a searing crimson sun slips into the turquoise Indian Ocean as seen from beaches that never seem to end.

The far-flung Lonely Peninsula is all about extraordinary cliffs, Indigenous cultural experiences, outdoor adventures and luxury camping. And then there's the Kimberley, a world of blood-red rock formations, remote trails and unrelenting beauty, not to mention that mysterious call of the outback. Swim beside 'gentle giant' whale sharks, snorkel among pristine coral, surf off seldom-visited reefs and dive at one of the world's premier locations at this World Heritage—listed marine parkwhich sits off the North Lonely Cape on the Coral Coast in Western Australia.

Rivalling the Great Barrier Reef for beauty, Ningaloo has more accessible wonders: shallow, turquoise lagoons are entered straight from the beach for excellent snorkelling.

Development is very low-key, so be prepared to camp, or take day trips from the access towns of Exmouth and Coral Bay. The decadent joy of drifting from winery to farm gate along eucalypt-shaded country roads is just one of the delights of Western Australia's southwest.

There are underground caves to explore, historic towns to visit and wildflowers to ogle. Surfers bob around in the world-class breaks near the Margaret River mouth, but it's not unusual to find yourself on a white-sand beach along the cape where the only footprints are your own. In winter and early spring, whales migrate along the 'Humpback Highway'. A precipitous comb of rock carved out by millennia of ice and wind, crescent-shaped Cradle Mountain is Tasmania's most recognisable — and spectacular — mountain peak.

It's an all-day walk and boulder scramble to the summit and back for unbelievable panoramas over Tasmania's alpine heart. Or you can stand in awe below and fill your camera with the perfect views across Dove Lake to the mountain. If the peak has disappeared in clouds or snow, warm yourself by the fire in one of the nearby lodges…and come back tomorrow.
