One of the best things about visiting Australia is that even regular travellers like me can feel like an adventurer. For most people, flights to the land down under will take a long time because they have to travel to the other side of the world. Don’t let that put you off though, there are so many amazing Australian activities for you you to enjoy, including lots of fantastic sports and activities you could try during your time in Oz.
White water rafting
There are lots of places in Australia where it’s possible for visitors to try white water rafting. You just have to search online for suitable businesses in the right locations and then get in touch to make arrangements. It is a perfect activity for large groups, but it’s also fun for couples and small groups of people. Weak swimmers will want to make sure they take part in the activity with people they trust. However, there are always instructors and guides on half to save you if anything goes wrong. Just be sure you read some reviews from sites like TripAdvisor before spending any money. As with anything, some rafting experiences are better than others.
Scuba diving around the reef
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the world, and it’s something everyone should plan to see during their lifetime. While you could take a helicopter ride of a glass-bottom boat, most people would agree that scuba diving is the best way to get up close and personal with the coral. Of course, the reef is protected, and you’re not allowed to touch it. For that reason, it’s never a good idea to try to reach the area without specialist guides and instructors. Whether you plan to scuba dive or just look at the reef from above the water; always ensure you hire the services of professionals.
Skydiving in Sydney
Sydney Harbour is one of the most iconic sights people expect to encounter in Australia. However, what if you could see it from a different perspective? There are now multiple companies working out of the city that focus their efforts on skydiving. You could jump from a plane and see Sydney from the air during your descent if you have the nerve. It’s a fantastic option for thrill-seekers who want to get their heart pumping, and it’s much less costly than most people imagine. Again, just take a look online and read some reviews until you select a suitable provider.
Those activities are guaranteed to keep you entertained during an Australian break. Just bear in mind that the Great Barrier Reef and Sydney Harbour are a considerable distance apart. That means you need to plan accordingly and hire a can when you land at the airport. There are excellent public transport links in Australia, but a car will help you to get from A to B in the fastest time possible. Have a great time!
