There is a reason why so many people enjoy traveling. It opens you up to new experiences, pushes you out of your comfort zone, expands your horizons, and is an overall great time. Whether visiting Big Ben in the United Kingdom or the Taj Mahal in India, you have the option to see sights that are only recognisable to you because of the history books you had in high school.
Now, there is the running joke that almost all of the poisonous animals and spiders are down in Australia, but do not worry too much about that. There are so many things to do in Australia, and be rest assured, those black widow spiders are not looking to interrupt your dinner date or your visit to the beach. So visit Australia! You will have a great time, especially if you consider doing these four activities:
See The Sydney Harbour
The Sydney Harbour is the most iconic spot in Australia due to its awesome beaches and the famous Sydney Opera House. On Australia.com, the Sydney Harbour is described as, “Sydney Harbour is an aquatic playground for Sydneysiders, with more than 240 kilometres (150 miles) of shoreline, punctuated by unspoiled beaches, picturesque gardens, and pockets of natural bush.”
Interested yet? Of course you are; Sydney Harbour is a fantastic spot to visit.
Visit Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
With unique geographical formations, this rare national park is a cool place to visit. From here, you can take guided tours, look at the rock art of past generations, go bird watching, and more. It is a beautiful spot that you would regret not visiting if you ever make the trek to the place down under.
The Laneways of Melbourne are, in a word, awesome. For example, one of the laneways, named ACDC Lane after the famous rock band, “contain(s) cafés, restaurants and clubs as well as an installation by Lou Weis and Jan Van Schaik called 'Over Logo', and numerous other works of street art.”
What is even cooler about ACDC Lane is that two days after a significant fire in 2008, the laneway hosted an all-ages rock concert among the burned buildings. Talk about cool.
The only issue with Melbourne’s Laneways is the fact that they are a long while from the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. Driving from Melbourne to Uluru is 25 hours away, so you may need to purchase a plane ticket if you plan on visiting both.
Go On An Adventure Tour
Want to go see some kangaroos and koalas in their natural habitat? Take an adventure tour! You get the opportunity to truly take in the nature of Australia through animals or geographic locations, like the rock at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
All of these places you referenced above sound like wonderful places to visit!
Sydney Harbour looks gorgeous and sounds like a fabulous vacay destination.
What would add to the experience for people who live in the latitudes of Northern Hemisphere similar to where I live will be experiencing freezing cold winter weather it will be summer there in Australia (or my favourite season, Spring, when it's autumn there).
I’ve done all four, a couple of them twice. Now, I need to get to Western Australia.
Thanks so much for your feedback!
