Things to Do on Your Trip to Australia

Finally, you’re going to have your Land Down Under adventure! Australia is truly a magical country that offers whatever your heart might desire. It’s huge and beautiful, so it’ll take you years to see everything worthy of your time. However, since you probably don’t have that much time at your disposal, here are a few must-see things on your Australian trip.

Have a road trip

If you love the open road and the freedom driving provides, then you must have a good road trip experience in Australia. There’s no better way to truly get to know this country and realize how vast, beautiful, often hostile yet awe-inspiring this continent actually is. So, as soon as you arrive, rent a vehicle and go on a big adventure. Australia is very safe when it comes to road trips—gas stations are frequent even in the outback, towns are friendly and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to stop and rest. However, make sure to watch out for animals on the road and those huge road trains that don’t stop or move for anyone.

Visit the cities

No matter if you’re an urban lover or a nature-obsessed person, you must experience Aussie cities. Giants like Sydney and Melbourne are brimming with life and fun things to do, see, eat and experience. When in Sydney, make sure to see the famous Opera House and Sydney Harbor and when you’re in Melbourne, do visit Royal Botanic Gardens. Both cities will often treat you to plenty of both paid and free things to do, so make sure to check out their websites and Instagram pages for updates on events and festivals.

Be romantic

Australia might not be synonymous with romance, but if you know where to look, it can be a perfect honeymoon destination for all types of couples. But even if you’re not on a honeymoon, you can boost the romance during your trip. You can take a relaxing Bondy to Coogee walk when in Sydney, have a one-on-one wine tasting experience in Barossa Valley or go hot-air ballooning over Melbourne. Whatever you’ve chosen to do, make sure you’ve packed some adult toys for her and him to make your trip even spicier. And don’t worry about getting embarrassed at the store—there are very discrete home deliveries!

Eat until you drop

While Australia doesn’t have a distinctive cuisine (it’s mostly a mix of various different influences) but there’s literally something for everyone. Most bigger cities are speckled with amazing Thai spots, Chinese restaurants, Italian eateries and Greek food stalls. According to enthusiasts, you can have a better gyro in Australia than Greece. So, make sure to forget all about your diet and just try as many things as you can. In order to introduce some classic Aussie tastes into your life, find places that serve traditional BBQ, some barramundi fish or special dishes made with avocado (Australians love their avo!) Finish your meal with some top-shelf wine or a cup of the freshest coffee you’ll ever try. Melbourne is especially famous for great coffee so even if you’re not a big coffee-head, you’ll appreciate the experience.

See the animals

Australia has a very unique animal world that’s totally cute and totally worth seeing. While there are many zoos all around the country and most are very ethical, make sure to do your research on the best ones that take great care of their animal residents. If you want to see fluffy koalas and bouncy kangaroos, it’s best to hit a sanctuary. If you happen to be near Adelaide, you can hit Kangaroo Island and see many different species of animals in their natural habitat.

Go diving

While land animals are super cute, Australia’s biggest treasure is hiding underneath the surface. No matter what type of tourist you are, you must visit the Great Barrier Reef and dive or snorkel with all sorts of fishes, corals and underwater plants. Make sure to get a good guide who can tell you all about the marine world and show you the best spots for spotting cool fish. Most agencies that offer Great Barrier Reef excursion also rent out gear, so you don’t have to worry about that.

Of course, you don’t have to cover all of these things on your first Australian adventure, but expect to come back as soon as you can, because Oz will steal your heart!
