    Five Top Things To Do In Australia

    Sometimes the best adventures are on our doorsteps; so we’ve devised a list of some of the best things do in Australia. Contact your Personal Travel Manager, to book in your next Australian adventure.


    1. Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge

    Sydney’s a city with many jewels in its crown, from the celebrated Bondi Beach to the iconic Sydney Opera House.  What better way to see Sydney’s Harbour Bridge and the neighbouring Sydney Opera House than from above. You can’t get much closer to the bridge than when you’re physically standing on it. The walk over Sydney’s Harbour Bridge takes thrill seekers over 134 metres high and isn’t for the faint hearted.

    2. Snorkel The Great Barrier Reef

    Enjoy the vibrant array of colourful marine life that have made the world’s largest coral reef system their home, including thirty species of dolphins, whales and porpoises. Snorkelling is one of the best ways to observe marine life in their natural habitat, and scuba diving courses give enthusiasts the opportunity to explore even further. The reef, which has been labelled as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, covers 900 islands and is stretched over 2,600 kilometres. Snorkelling tours generally last up to a week, depending on your budget, with accommodation near the reef ranging from hostels in Cairns to luxury resorts on Green Island.

    3. The Great Australian Road Trip

    An Australian road trip is a must do on every travellers list. TravelManagers can assist interstate travellers with car rental, campervans or all-inclusive coach tours. Take New South Wales’ Rainforest Way through luscious green valleys to Mt Warning, or Victoria’s Great Ocean Road to The Twelve Apostles. Plan your route meticulously down to the finest of details or don’t plan at all and go wherever the mood takes you. Just make sure you’ve got a map handy and enough fuel in the tank to get you to the next petrol station.

    4. The Blue Mountains

    Bordering Sydney’s metropolitan area, the Blue Mountains consist largely of sandstone highland dissected by gorges up to 760 metres deep and the elevated plateau allows unhindered panoramic views of the New South Wales countryside. The World heritage site consists of seven national parks and a conservation area home to a diverse range of wildlife, with the eucalyptus forests that cover the higher regions of the mountains providing a perfect habitat for Koalas. The Aborigine people have inhabited the Blue Mountains for millions of years and indications of ancient inhabitation are still evident with carved images at Kings Tableland dating back 22,000 years.

    5. Explore the beaches of Western Australia

    Western Australia’s massive 12,000km coastline gives tourists the chance to escape the crowds and find a pristine beach of their very own, with a number of spectacular spots to choose from. Swim with the schools of wild bottlenose dolphins that frequent the quiet bay of Monkey Mia or sunbathe with the kangaroos of Esperance.  Eighty Mile Beach is a colossal white sand beach sprinkled with millions of opalescent shells, stretching, unsurprisingly, eighty miles from Broome to Port Hedland. Neighbouring the Eighty Mile Beach is Cable Beach, regarded as one of the most beautiful seafronts on the planet.
