Best Things to do in Australia

There’s nothing  quite like an Australian adventure to add to your own personal travelogue, is there? Someone wise once said that you never run out of things to do in Australia. We agree wholeheartedly. The country is a whirlpool of new experiences, opportunities and unforgettable memories, a fact that greatly adds to the credibility of Australia tourism.

The stunning Great Barrier Reef is a great setting for learning scuba diving and thus exploring underwater wonders. This aquatic sojourn brings you close to a world you did not know existed, with exotic, brighly coloured creatures within touching distance! Short-term courses are easily available under professional guidance. Sailing and surfing are other adventure sports that are highly popular here.

If diving underwater wasn’t enough, here another way to make your Australian holiday exciting – go skydiving! The 22 miles of lush rain forests and unspoiled beaches of the coast of Queensland are a scenic setting for skydiving, with the shores acting as excellent parachute landing spots. The terrain is such that it has some amazing jump spots at great heights, which promise to get your heart rate going and adrenalin rushing!

While in Australia, you surely cannot miss seeing the majestic Sydney Harbour Bridge against the picturesque backdrop of the Sydney Opera House. The trip, of course, would be incomplete without climbing the bridge, which is another one of Australian tourism’s attractions.

Think Australia, and kangaroos will be one of the first things that’ll come to mind. Lone Pine Sanctuary in Brisbane allows you to interact with kangaroos and koala bears. Excellent opportunity to socialize and click pictures! Also, two hours away from Melbourne is the Philip Islands Nature Park where tourists can watch the world’s tiniest penguins splashing in the ocean.

The lakes, valleys and forests of Australia make it ideal for a hiking expedition, with the option of camping under the stars with a bonfire lit on the side.  The Australian outback is famous all over the world and is a natural world made of deep gorges, gushing waterfalls and rugged plains, all under sweeping blue skies!

The world heritage site of Lord Howe island, sunbathing opportunities at Rotto island ,the turtles, birds and white beaches of Wilson Island, the fascinating prison buildings of Cockatoo island, the exotic wildlife to be found at Kangaroo Island, the long, white beaches of Fraser island are just some of the factors that make an Australian holiday an excellent choice! So book your tickets, get that Australia visa and set sail, mate!
