Everyone will have a large collection of different goals and desires for their lives. But I believe that there are a few points that everyone should add to their bucket list . Here’s a list of eight things that everyone should accomplish before they die.

Here are 10 things that every millennial should add to their bucket list today. However, everyone should do this at least once in their lives all by themselves without the aid of a friend or family member.

If we’re being totally honest here (spoiler: we are), I had no idea what to expect from Western Australia.

I knew about the mining boom, Margaret River wines, The Triffids, and… yeah, okay, that was about it. It was one of those places I’d always meant to go, but cheaper sale airfares to New Zealand and Los Angeles just always seemed to pip the west coast at the post.

So when I was recently invited to explore one of its most remote regions for work, I jumped at the chance.

"We’re going to a place called Ningaloo Reef,” I told my boyfriend while doing a quick Google Maps search hours before I departed. Wikipedia said glowing things about the remote world heritage region, and so just like that, I was off.

All-inclusive holidays: The world's most popular way of travelling

  All-inclusive holidays: The world's most popular way of travelling There are one or two specific reasons for this turnaround in the way people travel.But here's the amazing part. That number now, just 15 years later, has gone from 10 per cent, to 75 per cent. Seventy-five per cent. That means three in every four holidays being taken around the world is now all-inclusive. A crazy 75 per cent of people are heading to big resorts or onto cruise ships where everything is already paid for, where meals and drinks and experiences are already included.

Today Lake Garda is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, granting a unique array of sights, sounds, tastes, and adventures. Here are 7 reasons why everyone should add Italy’s Lake Garda to their travel bucket list !

These Aussie Islands Should Be On Your Bucket List . Most travellers visiting Australia will already have Fraser Island at the top of their Aussie bucket list and there's no surprises why! Many budget backpackers assume that Hamilton Island is a holiday spot just for the rich and famous.

Eight hours of air travel, one time zone change and a switch from sweater to t-shirt later, I arrived. And within minutes, I totally understood what all the fuss was about.

Spanning 260km just off the WA coastline, the Ningaloo reef is around 12 hours drive from Perth (or a two-hour flight into Learmonth airport) and is home to coral lagoons, dolphins, manta ray, loggerhead turtles, whale sharks, and incredibly, humpback whales.

Unlike the Great Barrier Reef, Ningaloo reef sits incredibly close to the shoreline, so in some areas like Coral Bay you can pretty much walk straight into the water and start snorkelling.

For the first leg of the trip, the travel group was stationed at the tiny town of Coral Bay, staying at the Ningaloo Reef Resort. Arriving at sunset, it felt like we were walking into a mix of every Australian beach commercial from the 1970s and a postcard shot.

While there, we snorkelled and saw coral unique to the western coast, watched dolphins dive, whales breach and swam with grey nurse sharks, turtles, manta rays, and more fish than even a Nemo or Dory would recognise. (And thanks to a recent introduction by the WA government, if you're lucky and it's a good day, you can now even swim with the humpback whales while you're there!)

We also smashed around on dune buggies, ate sumptuous meals cooked by a transient Italian chef and in my case, got some serious, serious sunburn.

From there, we drove two hours to Exmouth, an old naval base town with a larger population of 2100.

We watched the day end from the old lighthouse lookout point with whales breaching at sunset, sinking cold beers and trying to forget that in 12 hours we’d be back at the airport and leaving this desolate wonderland.

Everyone should have a bucket list and on that list there should be some amazing holiday destinations you’d love to visit. But how do you decide what locations will make your list ?

Bucket Lists are becoming more popular, and you can even find online communities to share your list and keep track of others. Here are three bucket list travel destinations that everyone should add to their list for next year. The Northern Lights: Iceland.

We met an RAC holiday park manager who had taken her three kids around Australia only to come back and settle down in this red desert town, and a British expat who had converted his daughter’s campervan into a café serving jaffles and coffee.

We drove 15 minutes out of town and discovered rocky gorges, sweeping landscapes and baby emus.

We stumbled upon an Americana tribute restaurant where Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban photos took pride of place alongside the jukebox and cowboy hat light fittings.

We never did find out why they serve Peking duck, though…

Looking back, it was as picturesque and sun-soaked as I’m making it sound. It was the kind of place you want to spend every family holiday and make friends with other commuter families who make the journey; the kind of place to drive your campervan and see where it takes you and your road trip accomplice.

And for some, it’s the kind of place you want to move to and never leave.

Visiting the reef made me realise that for a little while at least, it’s time to forget about Cambodia and the Czech Republic. Paris and New York can always wait another day. It’s time to start putting Australian destinations on the travel bucket list and make them the priority places to go.
