Australia Active & Adventurous


  • Sydney Seaplane Adventure

Why is Australia a great place for an active and adventurous vacation?

 Australia is the ultimate adventure-lover’s paradise, a vast country with a mosaic of landscapes and natural wonders to be explored. From surfing along the coast, to snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, rappelling down waterfalls, or rafting down Tasmania’s Franklin River, the water activities are abundant in every corner of the country. There is no shortage of active activities on land either, whether its hiking the craters of an extinct volcano, skydiving over the beach or riding an ATV in the outback. Australia is also home to a wealth of unique animals and marine life, which make it the perfect destination for animal lovers. From crocodile encounters, koala cuddles and shark cage diving, Australia’s habitats allow for the most exciting animal adventure travel.

What are the top active & adventurous vacations/activities to do in Australia?

Adventurous travelers can try surfing at iconic spots like Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour and Bondi Beach. In the Blue Mountains, there are lots of hiking opportunities, as well as canyoning, swimming and caving. Port Stephens is known for parasailing, while you can take scenic balloon rides from the vineyards of the Hunter Valley to the coastal region around Byron Bay. In the wintertime, skiers and snowboarders can visit the snowy mountains for some serious slope and apres ski action.. Wildlife enthusiasts can visit the penguin colonies on Phillip Island or the Koalas in Warrandyte State Park. .

Queensland is chock-full of activities, especially for adventure seekers. Home of the Great Barrier Reef, travelers can snorkel, dive or even sleep overnight on a dive boat. Adventurous families can go on a whale watching adventure in Brisbane or kayaking along the Sunshine Coast. Queensland is perfect for nature-loving adrenaline junkies
