Where's an exotic, yet secure, place to travel for a single gal?

Wanderlust has bitten me badly, and I'm itching to go somewhere that will challenge and enthrall me. I've already done fairly extensive travel through Italy and South East Asia. My usual style is "flashpacking", ie. backpacking but not afraid to splurge. This will be the first time I'll be 100% on my own traveling. I'm also open to volunteering or working to extend my trip.
Me: 31 years old, Canadian, petite female, traveling alone.
Time: 3 - 6 months, probably starting this summer.
Budget: $3000 -$6000.
I'd love to hear your personal experiences and suggestions! So far I've been considering Argentina, New Zealand, or central/Northern Australia, but I worry that I'm playing it too "safe" with the last two choices. Thanks in advance!
