Talk about great weather, tantalizing meals & wines plus endless possibilities all tacked up in one awesome package. That’s an Australian holiday for you.

Considered as the snorkeling capital of the world, Australia is home to a plethora of water-based activities and a bit of mountain scenery as well. So whether you are looking for family-friendly activities or something to pump your adrenaline levels over the roof, Australia has it all.

The Great Barrier Reef

This network of over 3,000 separate reefs teeming with marine life needs no introduction. It is Australia’s pride and joy that sits high on most travelers bucket lists. Nothing beats a snorkel or scuba diving adventure in this warm and calm waters of the Pacific.

Thanks to the massive size of this reef, it has a couple of access points including Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, and Rockhampton.

Blue Mountains Tours

Highlighted as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Blue Mountains is a popular destination for scenic trekking, cycling, and horseback riding. It is located some 130km northwest of Sydney Harbor in New South Wales making it the ultimate get away from the city.

Some of the things to see there include the Three Sisters rock formation and the breathtaking Jamison’s Valley. You can view these two beauties from hiking trials, the Katoomba Scenic World’s Cable Cars, Echo Point Lookout and tramways.

Bondi Beach

This beach attracts over a million holidaymakers every year. It features a crescent of gold sands, smashing waves and a chance to soak up in the Australian sunshine. It’s also the perfect spot for open water swimming, water sports, paddle boarding, windsurfing, kitesurfing and even hiking on the coastal reefs.

Since it’s such a hot travel destination that enjoys all year round sunshine, you might want to visit the beach outside of summer when it’s less crowded.
