The most popular vacation destination this season is definitely Australia. It offers something for everyone, from relaxing evening and daytime walks along beaches and piers, to wild nightlife clubs. For the tourist who wants to explore, Australia offers numerous thrilling activities from hiking through forests and mountains to deep diving thrills at the Great Barrier Reef. In order to help you find your perfect route through Australia, we have singled out our favorite spots and activities for you to try.

1. Ocean adventures

For the thrill-seeking adventurer who wants to explore the sea and all its beauties, Australia is the perfect place to go to. Our top destination is the Great Barrier Reef. This coral reef system is known as the largest and most extensive one. It also encompasses 600 islands. Therefore, if you want to do something different for this vacation, we recommend becoming a sailor and travelling from island to island and keeping a journal of your many adventures. Additionally, there are numerous cruises and tours that you can book which offer snorkeling and deep diving expeditions which are absolutely breathtaking.

2. Transportation

Now we will take a look at some of the most affordable and efficient ways how you can travel across Australia. First of all, you have to take into consideration that the most expensive part of travelling to Australia is going to be paying for the airplane ticket. Our advice is to avoid booking flights between December and February since these are the months when the tickets cost the most. The cheapest option for a student, or a person who wants to visit a smaller region of Australia, is travelling by bus. Some bus lines in Australia offer various discounts and specials that can even get you a 50% discount the bust ticket price.  Public transportation in big cities is free, so keep that in mind as well. On the other hand, if you want to experience the beauty of Australia then we recommend getting your own car. This is truly the best solution because it gives you and the people that you take with you the ultimate freedom to travel anywhere. If you opt for this last option, then we strongly recommend protecting your wheels and tyres first before embarking on your trip.

3. Hiking

Hiking is a great way to relax and get in touch with your inner-self. The Larapinta Trail in the northern territory is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The untamed wilderness, fresh air and great abundant wildlife await anyone who wants to come and visit this extraordinary location. If you want to enjoy the beautiful coastline view we recommend exploring the Tongariro Crossing. What’s most exciting about this place is that you will get a chance to explore awe-inspiring volcanoes, craters and emerald lakes which will add a touch of mystery to your vacation trip. And keep in mind to prepare your equipment before you embark on your hiking trip. Bring lots of water and food so that you can stay energized and hydrated.

4. Visit Sydney

A visit to Australia will certainly be incomplete if you don’t visit Sydney.  Sydney is filled with beautiful cultural monuments, dazzling sand beaches, zoos packed with diverse wildlife, and jaw-dropping aquariums. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is an extremely popular tourist attraction because it offers the visitors an amazing view of the city’s pier and all the surrounding buildings and parks. Apart from that, if you consider yourself an adrenaline junkie you can opt for a one-of-a-kind climb to the top of the bridge where you can enjoy a unique experience which will stay in your memory forever. The Sydney Opera House is a perfect spot to visit for the people who enjoy the finer things in life like the opera and live concerts.
