7 Must-Try Activities if You're Planning a Trip to Australia

Are you planning a trip to Australia but aren’t sure how to experience it to the fullest? Then keep on reading as we’re about to give you 5 suggestions that will make your head spin:

1. Island hopping

Exploring Australia’s small islands can be one of the most fulfilling things to do, whether you’re looking for a secluded area to bask in the sun or surf until you drop. In fact, some of these are completely uninhabited, so you’ll have the whole beach to yourself with no one to disturb you. If you’re not comfortable with the idea of doing it all on your own, you can also take a guided tour.

2. Playing poker

There no better way to conclude a night than visiting one of Australia’s casinos. If the heat of the action is a bit too much for you to take, why not practice playing online poker australia to get a better understanding of the rules? Whether it be with real or play money, you can count on being able to take what you’ve learned and applying it to a live casino setting.

3. Kangaroo-seeing

It wouldn’t be much of a trip to Australia if it weren’t for kangaroos. In fact, you may not even need to venture out into the wild to encounter one – you could even run into a kangaroo at one of the beaches (fun fact: kangaroos love sunbathing). If you’re looking for a recommendation, try the Lucky Bay.

4. Ballooning

If you’re itching to experience Australia from the bird’s eye view to admire its breathtaking scenery, ballooning is the way to do it. Depending on your particular taste, you could either do it above one of the main cities or mix it with a little bit of nature.

5. Car rentals

It’s easy to find car rentals in Australia. From there on out, the world is your oyster! You can cruise down some amazing coastal roads such as the Great Ocean Road. Or, you can gather your friends and go picnicking in the great wide open.

6. Exploring Melbourne

For those who fancy getting lost in fairytale-like laneways of Melbourne’s inner city, there’s plenty to explore. Whenever you get tired from all the walking, a bar or a restaurant is likely only a couple of steps away. To take some stunning photos and create ever-lasting memories, aim for stopping at a rooftop bar and be prepared to be amazed by the view!

7. Snorkeling
Why not combine some good old swimming with experiencing Australia’s marine life? The Great Barrier Reef is the place to do it. Did you know it’s one of the world’s most vibrant and diverse ocean habitats? Of all the natural wonders you’ll encounter, reef sharks, sea turtles, giant clams, tropical fish, and coral formations stand out the most.


And there we have it! Whether you’re more of a laid-back tourist or a straight out adrenaline junkie, Australia has something to offer to everyone. Don’t forget to bring your wits with you and we’ll see you there!
