So you want to visit Australia but you’re not sure where to go? Never fear! I’ve compiled a list of my favourite Australian cities and which one would be ideal to visit based on the personality traits of your Zodiac sign. I’m pretty much obsessed with Astrology and I actually know what I’m talking about, believe it or not. There’s a lot more to Astrology than just your sun sign so if you feel like the description doesn’t represent you, look into your birth chart to see what other signs are there. You might identify more with your moon or rising sign than your sun.
Aries (21st March – 19th April)
Aries are always up for an adventure and Brisbane is the perfect city to base yourself in if you want to make the most out of Australia. It’s a big enough city for you to spend days immersing yourself in culture and nightlife. But we all know how restless you Aries can be. Brisbane is located near several national parks great for hiking and staying active. Don’t miss out on Fraser Island, either. Aries are all about activities and having fun and there’s no place in Australia that represents those things better than Fraser Island so visiting is essential.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Taurians value luxury, relaxation and appreciate the finer things in life, like food and wine. So there’s no place better than the foodie capital of Australia, Adelaide. Not to mention the sheer amount of shopping you could get done here! It’s not all about indulgences, though. As an Earth sign, Taurians appreciate nature and Adelaide is the perfect spot to base yourself if you want to get some fresh air. There’s nearby hiking trails to Mount Lofty or why not daytrip to Kangaroo Island to see some Aussie natives such as kangaroos, koalas and fur seals? A Taurus would appreciate any Australian city as it’s a country of laid-back, relaxed individuals just like themselves.
Gemini (21st May – 20th June)
Geminis hate staying still and picking only one city for this air sign was tricky, I’ll admit. Geminis would be better suited for a nationwide road trip so they can experience everything at their pace. Cairns is the perfect place to start as it’s in the far north of Queensland. Geminis bore easily and need to stay intellectually stimulated. Cairns is the Australian city which offers the most variety. Beaches, rainforests, waterfalls, art galleries, museums, snorkelling cruises to the Great Barrier Reef and more. Even a Gemini won’t get bored here.
Cancer (21st June – 20th July)
As a water sign, Cancers love to be near the sea. Luckily this is pretty much everywhere in Australia, but Noosa is a charming little seaside town in the Sunshine Coast that Cancers will fall in love with. From cute boutiques to beachside cafes, a Cancer can relax, soak up the sun and watch the waves. Cancers are one of the most laid back signs in the zodiac and there’s no place more laid-back than Noosa.
Leo (July 21st – August 22nd)
There’s no better place to base a fun-loving Leo other than Australia’s biggest and most famous city, Sydney. Leos love meeting new people, sophistication, parties and they hate being short of things to do. Sydney offers more than anywhere else in Australia, but it can be a little expensive. Luckily Leos know they deserve to live the life of luxury in this extremely luxurious city, so this doesn’t bother them. Treat yo’ self, Leo!
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Virgos love nature and staying active and Tasmania is the perfect Australian state to experience these things. From gorgeous mountains to stunning waterfalls, a Virgo will appreciate taking a break from their busy life to escape in nature and see some amazing Aussie animals. Virgos are true animal lovers and plant people and will be amazed by some of the unique wildlife Tasmania offers. Hobart is a little more off the beaten track than other Australian cities and a curious and sophisticated Virgo will appreciate the lack of party town vibes this city has compared to others.
Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
Libras love art, fashion and all things trendy and there’s no better spot to base yourself other than the the hipster capital, Melbourne. A Libra would love the city’s culture, having a good natter in a coffee shop, laneway cafe or in a rooftop bar. Libras love to make friends and experience places like locals and Melbourne is the best place in Australia to do this, it is Australia’s most livable city, after all.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Complex, private and intense, a Scorpio would want to lose themselves in nature and be able to explore one of the most beautiful places on Earth, the Whitsunday Islands. It’s secluded, isolated and an introvert’s paradise. Scorpios prefer beaches to busy city life and would appreciate a place where they can drop their intensity, at least for a little while. It’s easy to lose yourself in the beauty of the Whitsundays and a Scorpio probably needs this every so often.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Spontaneous and intelligent, Sagittarians love exploring new places and learning about other cultures. Darwin is a great place to situate yourself when learning about Aboriginal culture, seeing unique sights and maybe exploring somewhere off the beaten path nobody has ever been before. A Sagittarius would want to hire a 4WD and go off on a crazy adventure and lose themselves in nature and there’s no place more appropriate than the Northern Territory.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

City-dwelling Capricorn’s will adore Western Australia’s capital, Perth. Capricorn’s are organised, sophisticated and are famous for having their heads screwed on. They’re known as being the most ambitious Zodiac sign because of this and they only appreciate top notch from their holiday destinations. Perth has some of the best beaches, the best museums, the best galleries and the best history. Capricorn’s will want to spend their hard earned money somewhere appropriate, so Perth makes perfect sense.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

Aquarians love to be different and would want to see somewhere a little strange and less obvious than your bog-standard Sydney or Melbourne. Aquarians would want to stay somewhere totally unlike anywhere else in Australia and Alice Springs is the ideal place to get a unique experience. Aquarians are smart. They like learning about other cultures and Alice Springs is one of the best places to learn about Aboriginal culture in Australia. It’s also a great spot for camping under the stars or seeing large stretches of desserts. Aquarians love appreciating just how small they are in the great, big world and there’s no place like Alice Springs to experience this feeling.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Pisces are the artists of the Zodiacs and there’s no place in Australia like Byron Bay for them to find their people. As a water sign, they like to be near the sea and Byron Bay is a surfer’s paradise. With a motto such as ‘Cheer up, slow down, chill out’, a Pisces can escape from their busy, emotional mind and find peace in one of the happiest places on Earth.
