Australia is a popular destination for travellers of all kinds. Whether your dream trip is taking a trip to the Outback, seeing the Great Barrier Reef, or tasting some of Brisbane’s best cuisine, Australia has something for everyone. If you’re not sure where to start on your Australian vacation, check out these fun things to do in Australia!
Learn About Australian Culture
Although it’s not always easy to find out about other cultures when arriving somewhere new, finding out more about the culture of a country is always an interesting experience. Australia has a rich history, and learning more about this nation’s culture will make your holiday far more immersive. For example, learn some new slang words while you’re here or try out some Aboriginal cultural activities.
Visit The Great Barrier Reef
The world is on the cusp of another coral bleaching event, so it’s important to visit this natural wonder before it disappears forever. With so much variety in marine life, snorkelling and diving are popular tourist activities for visitors. Although you can also explore its wonders from above, taking a glass-bottomed boat tour will give you the best view of this marine masterpiece.
Visit The Outback
Australia’s Outback is currently divided into many states, with much of the country’s landmass still untouched by human presence. This rough and rugged region is full of natural beauty, so if you’re considering extending your trip, give the Outback a try. You can stay in one of its cosy caravan parks, or book a private tour to see some of its most impressive sights, including Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kakadu National Park
Explore Southern Cities
While Brisbane and Sydney are the main cities in Australia’s southeast corner, exploring other areas may be easier than you think. Visit some of the smaller cities, like Lismore and Ballina, where you’ll find great food, culture and beaches. With a population of over 80,000 in summer and over 25,000 in winter, the city’s population is a lot smaller than Brisbane or Sydney. When there’s nowhere to go nearby, drive on to visit some of the many wineries that dot the Barrington Tops, National Park.
Take A Trip To The Great Ocean Road
Although most famous for being one of Australia’s most scenic drives, this road has so much more to offer than beautiful coastal scenery alone. The road winds through some of the area’s most impressive national parks and includes a whole array of unique attractions, such as picturesque coastal towns, pristine beaches, and vibrant national parks. For visitors to the Great Ocean Road, it’s best to plan an entire trip around this entire drive; it’s a 500km journey that can take up to 5 hours or more!
Make Sure You See The Sydney Opera House
As one of Sydney’s most famous landmarks, the Sydney Opera House is more than a stunning construction. It’s integral to Australia’s culture and history; it was once considered a symbol of Australian-British friendship.
There’s so much to see and do in Australia that it’s impossible to mention everything. However, with so many things to do, it’s important to start planning your trip early.
