Despite the obvious things to do in Australia, like see the Sydney Harbour, hold a koala and a ride a Kangaroo. Here are our TOP 5 things to do during your time in Australia!
The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world spanning a distance of more than 3000kms. It is larger than the Great Wall of China and is the only living thing visible from space! The reefs vast natural beauty both above and below the water has not only made it into a global destination for tourists but also one of the best diving locations world wide attracting over two million visitors each year.
The Red Centre
The Red Centre is where you will find one of Australia’s most well known icons, the monolith known by the aboriginal people of Australia as Uluru but it is also known as Ayers Rock. A world heritage site, Uluru the traditional name given by the aboriginal people who lived in the area over 10,000 years ago. Uluru was discovered by Australian settlers in the 1870’s, a must see in Australia!
The Great Ocean Road
Australia’s South East is home to one of the worlds most picturesque coastal drives, the Great Ocean Road. Hire a car and spend as long, or as little time exploring. It takes travellers past world-class surfing breaks, through pockets of rainforest and calm seaside towns, and under koala-filled tree canopies. It shows off sheer limestone cliffs, dairy farms and heathlands, and gets you up close and personal with the crashing waves of the Southern Ocean. Recommended placed to see, The Twelve Apostles, Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village and Split Point Lighthouse.
It would not be Australia without our most famous animal, the Kangaroo. To ensure getting your Kangaroo fix you could visit a zoo but there is a much better way to interact with Kangaroos while on your time in Australia, visit Kangaroo Island. Kangaroo Island is located just off the mainland coast of South Australia, near Adelaide. The majority of Kangaroo Island is a nature reserve home to many animals such as Sea Lions, Koalas, Penguin colonies and of course Kangaroos.
The Kakadu National Park
Kakadu, Australia’s largest national park. Here you will find lush rainforests, rugged escarpments and aboriginal art work up to 50,000 years old. View the migration of millions of wetlands birds amongst the fragile waterlilies and prehistoric crocodiles. There is so much to see and do in Kakadu be sure to see the secluded glistening waterholes and gargantuan waterfalls. Areas we recommend to see: The Kathrine, Litchfield National Park and Arnhem Land
