Australia is, for many travellers out there, an exciting destination that has a lot to offer. The truth is that Australia can be both adventurous and cosmopolitan, both old and new, influenced by the European/Western culture and the native culture. Australia can provide you with the perfect blend between excitement, beauty, grandeur and places that will remain some of your fondest memories for many years to come. There so many ways to explore Australia, from a campervan trip to the finest Australia tours, whatever option you choose, be sure to include some of these destinations to your itinerary:
1. Diving and Snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef
Diving and snorkelling is a great way to experience the Great Barrier Reef as you can enjoy the dynamic and exciting marine life up close and personal. The Great Barrier Reef has one of the best reputations in the world for being a high quality diving site and will be certainly one of the highlights of your trip to Australia.
2. Karijini National Park
If you are into spectacular sights, then this is the place to be when in Australia. From swimming to simply allowing your eyes to rest upon the great scenery, there is something for everyone here. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the sheer size of this part and the breathtaking scenery – don’t forget to pack your camera.
Although this may seem like an obvious thing to some of you and an overrated spot for others, the truth is that you cannot actually say that you have really visited Australia if you don’t go to Sydney as well. The iconic Opera House, as well as the other attractions of the city (the Taronga Zoo, the festivals that take place here every year, and so on) will definitely be worth visiting and they will also be budget-friendly as well if you carefully plan everything.
4. Daintree Rainforest
If you are into wildlife attractions, then the Daintree Rainforest will feel like Heaven for you. With so many species to admire, there is absolutely no chance at all that you will actually get bored of it. This is Australia’s largest rainforest and a definite wonder for everyone out there. Do visit it and immerse yourself in the deep greens, see the famous Australian wildlife.
5. Freycinet National park
Although not located in actual Australia, but in the Commonwealth of Australia (240 KM south of the continent itself), this is certainly a spot you will not want to miss out on. There are many things to do here, from simply admiring the stunning and pristine landscape to snorkelling and scuba diving and from lying on the beach to hikes, ranger activities, outdoor theatre and many, many other attractive things as well.
There is indeed much more to Australia than this and probably than many other people out there think. Yet, these are among the best and most interesting things to do in Australia and you will certainly want to include at least one or two of them in your future trips to Australia.
