My Top Ten Things To Do In Australia

I was lucky enough to travel to Australia for a month with my company previously. I even got a chance to stay another month to travel around by myself. So below is my top ten things I've done in Australia so far! Hopefully this will give you a few suggestions...

1. Skye dive on Mission Beach

This was the most craziest thing I have ever done and one of the most incredible things to ever do! I can not recommend highly enough! 

2. Scuba Diving in the Great Barrier Reef 

This was the scariest thing I have ever done, even more than sky diving! I did my diving with Quicksilver. I got to go on a boat from Port Douglas to their pontoon in the middle of the ocean. You can also do other activities such as snorkelling, ride in a submarine or walk through the under water tunnel. 

3. Stay on Heron Island 

Seriously the most beautiful place I have ever seen. If your looking for a romantic getaway in Australia this is definitely the place to go. 

4. Drive a 4x4 and sleep in a tent on Fraser Island 

If you love driving this will definitely test your skills as your driving in the sand. Also staying in a tent was also my own personal challenge, I'm not use to roughing it! 

5. Sail a boat around the Whitsundays

We sailed in a boat around the Whitsunday Islands and headed to Whitehaven Beach which was stunning. Hands down the best beach I have ever seen! 

 6. Visit Macquarie's chair 

This is my favourite view in Sydney it's like a two for one package deal. You get a great view of the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge and it's even better at sun rise. 

 7. Watch the sunset on Bondi 

Most of us have watched Bondi Rescue and this made me desperate to see Bondi Beach. It's even more beautiful in person. I would recommend watching the sunset it's just incredible! 

 8. See Australia's famous animals... 

If your going to go to Australia there is no way you can leave without holding a koala and feeding a kangaroo. 

 9. Stay in the Daintree rainforest 

I stayed in a cabin in the middle of the rainforest. It was a great place to be 'one with nature'. There is also loads of activities such as zip wiring through the bush which was a lot of fun! I now know how Jane felt from Tarzan! 

 10. Take the ferry to Manly 

Perfect and cheapest way to enjoy a Sydney Harbour Cruise. Manly is also a lovely place to visit and the beach is perfect for those who want to learn how to surf. 

I really want to explore more of Australia especially the West Coast.

Anyone have any recommendations or top tips to do in Australia for me? 

Keeping you posted.

  1. I'm new to your blog, but holy cow, you brave soul! I keep seeing posts about huge spiders in Australia - have any experiences with huge, creepy bugs? I have to admit I am a little jealous because Australia looks like an interesting place to visit! I actually had a friend who was thinking of moving to Australia but backed out. You go, girl!
