Top 10 Things To See & Do
- 1 Climb Sydney Harbour Bridge
Climbing Sydney Bridge is one of the most exhilarating things you will ever do. Getting to the top is a real achievement – it’s not a short stroll but the reward is a panoramic view like no other. Some prefer sunrise, others sunset, but both are incredibly beautiful. Call us to book you Sydney Harbour Bridge climb.
- 2 Drive the Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road is driving nirvana. A stunning stretch of coastline running between Melbourne and Adelaide with the road as close to the sea as it can be, driving the Great Ocean Road is a vital part of your Australian holiday.
- 3 Swim with dolphins in South Australia
Nothing beats the extraordinary experience of snorkelling and swimming amongst a pod of wild dolphins. The best area for this is South Australia, near Adelaide. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and a real wow for children and adults alike.
- 4 Visit Kangaroo Island
Kanagaroo Island is a wildlife wonder; a true highlight for animal lovers and one of the few places in the world where you can get up close and personal with a variety of Australia's most famous species. It is, rather strangely, one of the few places most tourists will get see kangaroos in the wild. And we have to mention Southern Ocean Lodge here – this incredibly luxurious lodge is well worth the price tag and will make your Kangaroo Island experience that extra bit special.
- 5 Snorkel or dive in the Great Barrier Reef
This is the longest Reef in the world, one of the most accessible and certainly an icon of Australia that everyone wants to experience – and deservedly so! Clear waters brimming with aquatic life of all shapes and sizes, it’s a haven for divers and snorkellers. We can book day trips as part of your holiday or very pleasant cruises from three days to a week. We can even book you a helicopter ride over the Reef – let us know how you would like to see the Great Barrier Reef.
- 6 Visit beautiful Coral Bay in Western Australia
Largely unknown and unvisited by many visitors, this has to be one of Australia's greatest hidden secrets. Ningaloo Reef is the largest fringing reef in the world and is unrivalled in terms of its beauty and accessibility – just step out from the beach and you’re surrounded by its beauty. This is also one of the very few places in the world you can dive and snorkel with whale sharks. Visit the Coral Bay area as part of a fabulous WA self-drive tour to see more of the surrounding scenery.
- 7 Marvel at the sights of Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon
Known as Australia's Red Centre, this region of the outback is world-famous and a very sacred area for the indigenous Aboriginal people. Uluru has no rival and seeing the three iconic sights of Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon is a must for anyone visiting Australia. For a true outback experience, hire a 4WD vehicle from Alice Springs and take The Mereenie Loop.
- 8 Overnight in The Blue Mountains
So close to Sydney and yet a million miles from city life, this vast expanse of wilderness is utterly stunning. If you’re short on time, you can take a day trip to visit this area of outstanding beauty but, if you can, spend a night or two in the region itself. You will be pleased you did.
- 9 Visit one of Australia’s many legendary wine regions
Australia is packed with fabulous vineyards, including many world-famous labels and small secluded wine estates. All are worth a visit, so hire a car and be sure to pop in and sample a white or red, however long or short your stay. The most visited wine regions are Hunter Valley in New South Wales, MacLaren Vale and Barossa in South Australia, and the Margaret River region in Western Australia.
- 10 Walk the Bay of Fires in Tasmania
At the edge of Mt. William National Park, the magnificent wilderness coastline known as the Bay of Fires offers a Tasmanian trekking tour with dramatic landscape, ecology and wildlife. Led by well-informed Tasmanian guides, small groups can explore both the fascinating beach environment and the rich diversity of the nearby woodlands. Tasmania is often forgotten by visitors but here is one very good reason why it should make your list of must-see spots.
