We go on holidays to enrich our lives with new and exciting memories of our journeys. So, when you travel to Australia, make your trip more memorable by going on these ten unforgettable adventures.
Climb Sydney Harbour Bridge.
If you’re the type who gets an adrenaline rush whenever you’re on a high place, you could get that rush going while climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge. At the end of your climb, you’ll be rewarded by breathtaking views of Sydney’s harbour and skyline.
Catch a performance at the Sydney Opera House.
The Sydney Opera House, Australia’s most iconic landmark, is more than just a pretty piece of architecture. You can attend a performance there almost any night, as it’s the home of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia, the Sydney Theater Company, and the Australian Ballet.
Hike the Blue Mountains.
The Blue Mountains aren’t really mountains at all but rather deeply cut sandstone plateaus densely covered with eucalyptus trees. When the essential oils of these trees evaporate and disperse, they allow the blue light spectrum to become more visible, thus giving the mountains their blue colour. The effect is absolutely dramatic.
Drive the Great Ocean Road.
A road trip down the Great Ocean Road is one of the most popular things to do in Australia. Stretching 243 kilometres between Torquay and Allansford in Victoria, this highway hugs the Surf Coast, so it’s inevitable to see surfers catching a break on your drive. You’ll see a lot of breathtaking sights on your drive down this highway, most notable of them being the Twelve Apostles, limestone rock formations standing along the beaches of the Surf Coast.
Dive the Great Barrier Reef.
Scientists are claiming that the Great Barrier Reef may be gone by 2050, so you need to see this ecological wonder before it vanishes (or join in the effort to save it from coral bleaching and pollution). The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland is one of the most diverse marine ecological systems on the planet, and it’s definitely spectacular.
Walk the streets of Melbourne.
Melbourne is one of the most beautiful cities not just in Australia but in the entire world. You can see this beauty in Melbourne’s well-preserved colonial architecture that shares space with towering modern skyscrapers. Melbourne is also known for its fantastic street art, which you can discover while wandering through its neighbourhoods.
Trek down Queensland’s Mossman Gorge.
A part of the Daintree National Park near Cairns, Mossman Gorge is one of the oldest continuously surviving rainforests in the world. Treks here are led by members of the indigenous Kuku Yalanji people. These treks will not just take you through lush greenery and enchanting waterfalls, but will also help you learn more about the indigenous way of life in Queensland.
Watch the sunset over Uluru Rock.
Uluru Rock, formerly known as Ayers Rock, is one of the iconic symbols of Australia. A red rock formation that stands tall amidst the flatness of red desert surrounding it. Watching the sunset over this mysterious rock is an awe-inspiring experience you’re not likely to ever forget.
Hit the beach at the Gold Coast.
Australia’s Gold Coast is where you’ll find some of the most magnificent beaches in the whole world – stretches of golden, powdery sand kissed by cool blue waters. It’s also a popular surfing destination.
You’ll never run out of exciting things to do in Australia. These are just some of the best of them, there are many more. Why don’t you plan your Australia holiday right now to discover what unforgettable memories you will create on your visit?
