We all know that there are usually so many places to visit but so little time on your hands especially when it comes to vacations. Hours turn into days so fast that before we know it-it’s time to get back to reality. If you plan to make Australia your next holiday destination, you will again be faced with the dilemma as to where to go. Well, here are some of the top things to do and places to visit in Australia.
One of the most loved outdoor experiences is the ‘Sounds of Silence Dinner’. No, this isn’t a restaurant where silence prevails but is a classic experience in the Ayers Rock Resort. Just what does this excursion involve? Well, the trip begins with a journey to a secluded view of the landscape with the Uluru in front and the Kata Tjuta behind where you will view one of the most amazing sunsets. At this point, wine and crepes are set before you and as the sun sets, you enjoy a feast of authentic Australian dishes. As night falls, you then have a stargazing session and then wind up with a cup of tea or coffee.
To make your trip to Australia one of a kind, forget about the ‘normal’ tourist destinations and instead head to some less-visited islands. South of Adelaide for example hosts the Kangaroo Island which is a pristine 150km long haven. The island is a great place to experience Australia’s diverse wildlife. The King Islands to the north of Tasmania are also not that regularly visited and include fertile and uncomplicated islands with a 1500 population. A breeding ground for seals and sea elephants, the islands are known for their huge wildlife which makes up for their small size.
Another great activity for those who want more than sightseeing is snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef which is the largest in the world. Diving and snorkelling in the only living organism viewable from space is sure to be an adventure.
Feeling a little independent? Pack your bags, take a map and head for a multi-day hike in the Overland Track in Tasmania. With varying degrees of difficulty, the hike is ideal for all fitness levels.
If you want to get more sporty, you should definitely witness Australia’s national sport – cricket. Check out Australian Cricket Tours to arrange your next cricket tour or match package to follow the popular Aussie cricket team.
Australia is one of those places you’d need a year to really explore but with little time on your hands, these few destinations will be enough to give you a taste of the great outbacks.
