Adventure Activities Australia
Australia is a country with all sorts of activities packed into one big island – literally the largest in the world. From scuba diving to mountaineering, cruising to extensive shopping, long drives to sunbathing – there is no dearth of activities to do in Australia. The nature enthusiasts can make a beeline towards the barrier reef, long stretches of desert and limestone formations and beautiful beaches.
Australia is home to world’s largest coral reef and thus has a magnificent underwater scene. The Great Barrier Reef is more than 2000 kilometres in length and can be accessed from the west coast of Australia and from the multiple islands off the coast as well. Exploring this extremely diverse, spectacular ocean habitat is one of the top things to do in Australia. Activities here include swimming with turtles and whale sharks, up-close view of the sea anemones and extensive corals or simply diving to enjoy the colourful schools of fishes.
Water sports activities:
Because of the brilliant, sun-kissed beaches all around Australia, the country has one of the best water adventure scenes. Be it Bondi Beach of Sydney or the Sunshine Coast of Brisbane, Australia adventure activities in the beach areas are aplenty. One can choose from scuba diving, snorkelling, paragliding, waterboarding, jet skiing, windsurfing, submarine dives, helmet diving, paddle-boarding and the special attraction – Cage of Death in a pool of crocodiles.
Here are the best things to do in Australia.
Snorkeling is one of the most popular things to do in Sydney, Australia to discover the calm waters near Clovelly. It is also the best way to explore the Barrier Reef underwater off the Queensland coast. There is no heavy equipment attached – only the goggles, fins and breathing gear. Snorkeling in Australia should be one of those things to tick off your bucket list.
2. Zipline tour
Among the best Australia points of interest is the zip line tour. Daintree Forest in Queensland is an excellent place to explore the country’s wilderness, and it is also a UNESCO Heritage Site. And the best way to enjoy this biodiversity hotspot is on a zip line trip through the canopies. On this exciting adventure, one not only gets to have a tree-top view of the world’s oldest tropical rainforest; but also gets to meet its long-time residents.
3. Meet the Kangaroos
Kangaroos are the national animal of Australia and also uniquely found in this part of the world only. For the rest of the world, these pouncing marsupials are only to be seen from afar in the zoos. But in Australia, one can easily meet and greet them in the open. Located in the pleasant climate of South Australia, Kangaroo Island has the lovely animal grazing and jumping around in the meadows, making a lovely scene for a countryside walk. It is one of the most interesting things to do in Australia in December.
4. See the southern lights
Often eclipsed by its more popular northern counterpart Aurora Borealis, the southern lights gets underrated. But from July onwards, from Mount Wellington or Cradle Mountain on the island of Tasmania in Australia, one can soothe their eyes with the magnificent green, red and pink Aurora Australis of the southern hemisphere. It is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful scenes of Australia.
5. Hiking and Trekking
Blue Mountain region in the New South Wales is perfect for a day trip away from the city. It offers numerous hiking trails, cycling routes, driveways, horseback riding, abseiling, canyoning and a high-on-adrenaline cable car ride. The hop-on-hop-off trolley tour is ideal for a local trip.

Mr. Raunak had planned our entire trip to the perfection with comfortable stay options. Raunak was keeping in touch during the entire trip. We had no problem whatsoever at any place.

Samridhi's 13 days trip to AustraliaWe had a good trip to Australia. Mostly everything was very organised and at ease of convenience. We personally feel our hotels at Sydney and Melbourne could have been better but the ones at Cairns and Gold Coast were amazing. We didn't like our decision of self-drive car considering how it is a hassle specially when you don't know your way in the city. Australia is an amazing country to visit especially if you are looking for a peaceful vacation.
Rajinder's 10 days trip to AustraliaVery co operative staff. All the activities were on time.
Padmapriya's 7 days trip to AustraliaWe had an awesome trip and everything was taken care of. Only issue we faced was we were asked to download pick your trail app and use it. In the app our pick up time mentioned was 5.30 am whereas the driver said it was 5 am and charged us 35 dollars extra. We still have not received the resolution from pick your trail. Otherwise everything went well as per the itenary.
