  • Australia offers a diverse range of experiences to the modern traveler. From nature to sports, there is something in this beautiful country that everyone can enjoy. 

    Visit Kakadu

    Kakadu National Park is located 1.5 hours drive from Darwin in the Northern Territory. It is the biggest National Park in Australia, being roughly the size of Wales. Kakadu is diverse, both ecologically and biologically. Because of the diversity of the land, it has a vast array of animals including crocodiles, wallabies, ducks, storks, kangaroos, dingoes, and flying foxes. This is a small example of the animals that live in the region though. Do your research on the place and plan a trip there to appreciate the truest beauty of the Land Down Under.  

    See Uluru

    Uluru is practically the heart of Australia since it is located in the center of the country. Also known as Ayers Rock, this giant sandstone formation is 348 meters high and has a total perimeter of 9.4 kilometers. The name Uluru comes from the native Pitjantjatjara people to whom the rock is sacred. Out of respect to Australia’s indigenous people, you cannot climb the rock anymore, but a camping trip under the stars is nothing short of spectacular. Uluru offers some incredible photo opportunities for the more artistic souls, particularly at dusk and dawn.

    Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge

    If you want a different perspective of Sydney’s skyline and harbor, then this might be the adventure for you. A limited number of local tour operators have been granted access to provide bridge climb experiences that see you reaching heights of 134m above sea level for some of the most sensational views of Sydney. The bridge climb is focused on safety and is a truly unique way to experience one of Australia’s most prominent icons. 

    Go to the Horse Racing

    Horse racing is one of the most popular spectator sports in Australia. There are races and events in every state and territory with the most notable being the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne. There are also races like the Sydney Cup and the Everest in Sydney and a Railway Stakes bet never goes astray in Perth. There’s the Darwin Cup in the Northern Territory and the Adelaide Carnival in South Australia. Each event is filled with glitz and glamour and hosted at the most prestigious racecourses in the country. Fashion is a key part of these events so get your best dress or suit on and enjoy a fun day at the races.

    Swim the Great Barrier Reef

    The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef on the planet and spans 2,300 kilometers over an area of about 344,400 square kilometers. Snorkeling or diving here is incredible, with countless different types of marine animals to see including countless species of fish, sharks, octopuses, turtles, and stingrays, to name but a few. The reef itself comprises over 2,900 individual reefs and can be seen from outer space. With rising water temperatures causing coral bleaching to large sections of the reef, it is now or never to experience one of the 7 modern wonders of the world. 

    These are just a few of the experiences that Australia has to offer. As such a large country, there is so much to see and do that you may find it difficult to choose.
